Pushing My Artistic Envelope: the Seattle Metals Guild Biennial Exhibition
One of my challenges as a working artist is finding the time to push my vision far beyond what I’ve been creating. It’s tough for everyone to fit everything into the work week, and it becomes even harder when I don’t know where the process will lead me, or how long it will take.
But, it’s absolutely necessary. That’s how my jewelry designs change and grow, and how I learn new techniques and develop new processes. I’m not on a path where I can just book the next class in a series; I’m designing my own art form, teaching myself how to do it as I go. There is not instruction manual. So, experimentation is a must.
Which is why celebrations of experimental work like the Seattle Metals Guild Biennial Exhibition are such a wonderful piece of my process. There’s nothing like the challenge of other beautiful work to spur me on (and nothing like an installation deadline to convince me to wrap up a design!)
I created a three-piece collection of Metal Mermaid jewelry in stainless steel hardware, intricately linked with titanium, in a heat patina finish. These were so much fun!
These pieces (and the rest of the Seattle Metals Guild Biennial Exhibition) will be on display on the 2nd Floor, South Galleria at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle from April 5th – June 27, 2017.
