I'm Mary Ann Spavins Owen. My husband, Malcolm, and I have been making and selling things for a long time. We live in far northern New York Sate near the Canadian border. We're currently building a new house which takes up anything that might have been considered free time. We're slow.
We make a wide range things out of metal; from jewelry to sculpture. Malcolm has made many of the hammers and other tools we use. Currently, much of our work involves tiny cast sterling silver figures. Each one of them has a name! We don't want to lose track of anyone.
Making a living from art is a rich and rewarding lifestyle in many ways. It helps to love working.
