Alchemy 3: The 15th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition

Two of my mechanical pieces can be seen in the Enamelist Society's biennial international Alchemy 3 exhibition. They are lying between the work of two of my favorite enamelists--Amy Roper Lyons and Harlan Butt. The ladies checking out the exhibition here are new friends and talented enamelists themselves. This exhibit of over 60 enameled works of art including jewelry, wall art, vessels and clothing is traveling to several galleries throughout the next few months--The Worcester Center for Crafts, The NH League of Craftsmen and the McGowan Fine Art Gallery. Check it out if you are in the New England area, it is well worth the trip. If you cannot attend, the exhibition catalog is available for sale here

an afternoon snorkel
The deep parts of my life pour onward, as if the river shores were opening out. I feel closer to what language can’t reach. With my senses, as with birds, I climb into the windy heaven...in the ponds broken off from the sky...

I am woman, hear me forge

This is a holiday gift for a very talented metalsmith. Among many other things, she forges the sterling silver knife blades for her flatware on a handmade wooden stand for her steel block, so I depict her doing this very thing, activated by a flower bud pull-string.

Soulcology in Metals at the Guilford Art Center

The premise for the show at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, CT, Soulcology in Metals, is: how do the artist's personal emotions and psychology influence their work, in what ways do you see a transformation? Two of my pieces will be a part of this show.
