Studio, teaching institute, gallery
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am largely inspired by structures in nature; layers in rock formations, crevices in dried riverbeds, knotty tree bark. These structures are translated in clay and used for the pots that originate from the wheel.
My technique is based on the fact that clay shrinks while drying.
By processing clay dry in wet layers small tearing or deep cracks arise.
The work is frequently finished with a very matt ‘sandy’ glaze in earthly colours and fired at cone 6.
Sometimes pieces of drifting wood are added or the weathered pots get a contrast with gold lustre.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
