This workshop is intended to familiarize one with the understanding of how a design is transformed into art. This will involve creating an object on paper that incorporates scale, balance perspective and contrast. These concepts will then be developed into metal objects using the techniques of piercing, sawing and cold connecting with rivets. We will create wearable art pieces based on discussion and hands on experience. The project will focus on making jewelry from hand-sawed pieces of titanium sheet, then layered and connected with titanium wire. Basic coloring techniques of titanium will also be explored. Participants are encouraged to come with an imaginative, experimental approach to jewelry making.
Ages 16 and over, a materials fee of $25 will be added to the tuition.
My experience derives from working in jewelry design and production for over 30 years.
The jewelry pieces involve constructed forms in mixed metals primarily titanium, assembled in layers, and cold connected with rivets to give the finished piece a three dimensional effect. Inspiration draws from nature and technological objects. I travel extensively throughout the United States demonstrating, showing and selling my work at exhibitions and art shows such as The ACC Craft Shows, The Chicago Old Town Art Fair, Longs Park Art and Craft Festival in Lancaster, PA. Recent exhibitions include Wearable Expressions, CraftForms and The Mesa Art Museum’s Contemporary Crafts Exhibition. My work has appeared in several publications, such as Making Metal Jewelry, Wrap, Stitch, Ford and Rivet, Showcase 500 Art Necklaces, Ornament Magazine and Art Jewelry Magazine. My work has garnered a variety of recognitions in 2017: The Saul Bell Award as a Finalist, Wearable Expressions for Honorable Mention, Krasl Art on the Bluff, First Place in Category and The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsman for The Resolved Design Award.
