I'm a composer, cellist, metalsmith, designer, photographer, traveller, computer geek, fledgling set designer, and ex-ballerina, among a few other things. Inspired by the Viennese Secession and the Wiener Werkstatte model, I strive for 'gesamtkunstwerk' or comprehensive artwork... an exploration, combination, and synthesis of all my passions in numerous realms of art and design.

My jewelry work revolves, for the most part, around sterling silver, resin, concrete, gemstones, rusted metals, sound and found objects. I'm also currently prototyping new work using 3D design and printing processes.

Hi Norsola, Nice to see you here on Crafthaus. We have been fans of your work for some time.
 
 
 

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.
