Artist statement:
I have always had an interest for the natural organic world around me, often picking up seed pods on adventures and delighting in new found plants and flowers when I was a child. Through fine arts and jewellery I have taken this love and created a range of jewellery that explores space, fluidity and balance through organically shaped sculptural forms which seem to float on the body. This is done in a range of metals such as silver and gold, with patina effects to “sketch” my ideas into metal. It is my intention to stimulate the viewer and delight the wearer appreciating these pieces both on and off the body but still maintaining their interest over time, creating an appreciation for organic form and the myriad of secrets that lie within.

Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More

Behind the Brooch

This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More

Hey Michelle, your pieces are great. Are you forging these pieces? Are you in any galleries?

That is easy...Inder your picture on your Crafthaus page there should be a line that says." Blog Post"...or "Add a Post" or something like that...Just click on it and it will take you to your own blog page. I don't really remember setting it up...so it must have been easy! Good luck. If you have problems...let me know... I'll try to help.:-)
 
 
 

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.
