Collected stones, metals and treasures purposed and repurposed by a perpetual tinkerer.

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t collecting rocks, old tools, beautifully smashed loops of street wire and shiny things. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t draw on napkins & in the ever present little black book. I came to metalwork quite by accident. I was taking a meditative Chinese brushwork class at a city art center years ago. Leaving the class to go to work I was caught by the sound of many hammers ticking away in an odd, steady rythmn. I peeked into the classroom and was clutched by the scene. Metal being formed. Cool tools at work on miniature sculptures. Fiery torches being used to meld pieces together. Jewelry!

As a play-in-the-woods snowshoe kind of girl jewelry didn’t appeal. There were some exceptions: the push/pull of my grandma Helen’s tall deep rose-ruby ring paved with diamonds & emeralds that stood like an exotic temple. The other exception was a small gold charm. It was a cast and painted rendition of Little Red Riding Hood. A tiny girl in a red cape, holding a basket stood knocking at the door of a cottage. The cottage hinged open to reveal the Wolf, grinning, with a blue nightcap on and a quilt pulled to its chin. Endlessly evocative.

A decade later I continue to be enthralled with the process of forming metals into miniature sculptures. I typically start with several elements and a notion of a piece, and then begin the forming of it. I use drawing to problem solve and see what ought to go where. Then look to the piece to inform me about what, if any color it needs. So far, the patina process includes; vinegars, salts, ammonias, seaweeds and heat in various combinations. Each piece is unique, and involves a series of explorations and discoveries.
