About SharonStaffordMetals

On Etsy since 2013

I am continually amazed to be working as a metals artist!

When I decided on other pursuits in college rather than metals, I thought “I’ll get back to metals someday”. How many times do we say those things knowing how unlikely they are? And yet, here I am – a metals artist.

My re-entry into metals, about 15 years ago, was through a class called “Woven Metal Techniques”. Suddenly, two of my favorite things - metals and crochet were merged. I continued to take metals classes and also sought out basketry classes to learn more about fiber techniques. Using basketry and fiber techniques in metal brings a wonderful sense of discovery – the nature of metal seems to change when woven and the nature of a traditional fiber technique can have a very different appearance when done with metal. I frequently incorporate these techniques into my work as well as more traditional metalworking.

Even with life full of digital images, I still find myself drawn to interesting objects that I can pick up, hold, and investigate. Objects with intriguing form, volume, and textures, as well as unexpected details – this is what I love to explore and bring to my artwork.

Ultimately it’s working with my hands, designing, immersing myself in the creative process, and learning to go where the artwork leads that is fulfilling. I am happy and grateful to be here doing this and sharing it with you.
