Artist's Statement

I am a person of contradictions. My work expresses the internal dialogue I have with myself. I use many materials....paperclay, wire, silk organza, human hair, feathers, gut, paint which is applied, layered, sanded, layered again.
Fractured Angelics is the desire to covet objects, fetishes and such. I must have that! I think about it over and over in my head till I get it. But there is an opposing side that seeks emptiness, space, quiet, pure elegance, simple but powerful form. Sculpting puts me in that space. The human form must stand alone and be authentic.
The Angelic Collection has been my passion for the past 4 years. Are they relics or fetishes? I have always reached spiritual enlightenment through my addictions and compulsions. To have more of everything and to have nothing. This has been my most personal work thus far.

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

Takahiro Iwasaki - Miniature Scenes made of Fibers, Dust & Hair

The only place for cloth fibers, human hair and dust in my home is the vacuum cleaner, but that's not the case for Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki, who loves to use them to create detailed miniature scenes that depict Japan's industrial…See More

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!
