What media do you work with?
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.

Retracing my steps: Explorations in Fiber Sculpture at Arrowmont

Arrowmont: after 25 years, I am returning to the place where it all started for me as a fiber artist.  That embarrassing picture is me, Amber O’Harrow (then Amber Wood), with my first weaving, turned into a bag.  Let’s see where my journey has led me since then, as I follow my guide, Pat Hickman on an exploration of fiber sculpture at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. See More
