Artist Biography; Scott Pincus

My studio is located in the town of Volcano, on the Big Island of Hawaii found just outside of Hawaii National Park. I try hard to create captivating, original sterling silver designs, that speak both to me and to others about beauty, and the agelessness of the artistic endeavors of ancient man. I find myself often taking inspiration from nature, and from ancient drawings carved as anasazi cave art, from excavated pottery shards and petroglyphs notched in volcanic stone found along the beautiful shores of pacific islands, oh, and fossils.

A minimalist at heart, when not working with ancient art, I often work in abstractions in nature trying to find universal similarities in forms. I like to discover and intentionally create morphologic ambiguity in my work, open for interpretation.

Part of my process before I begin designing jewelry is to research collections of works by ancient artists, visit archeological sites and learn about the cultures. . I am just fascinated by petroglyphs. I do not merely want to capture the images with my tools; rather, with careful, colorful consideration, I want to give the ancient artist work, life once more.

I try to breathe life into the antiquities of mans early art, to discover and rediscover, their designs, ideas, innovations, and lifestyle. I strive to capture these qualities, and allowing for modern artistic interpretation, sculpt them into the medium of silver, of my time. Hopefully my artwork speaks to this and brings forward the voice of their past.

As artist, we often think about legacies, probably just as these ancient petroglyph carvers and pottery makers did in there time here. I like to think about the legacy of painting on a cave wall, or carving and image in rock, and then I think about the durability of my silver metal works. My hope, is that one day, in our long distant future some artist might dig up my work at some archeology site or see my work in a museum and feel the same way.

To the patient, all good things will come

More of my work can be found by following the site links on the right.

I have a blog on my website if you would like to learn about the jewelry making process. I also publish updates once a month from my mailing list. It is easy to sign up on my website as well.

I started this shop in 2008 and rapidly got frustrated with internet marketing as a whole. Everything was so labor intensive. Maintaining multiple sites was a serious chore. Things were grossly disconnected and many of the feature I wanted were not possible. I often found myself having to repeat the same chore over and over again on multiple sites, truly a bane for an artist. I want new! I want to explore! I continued doing my art since then and improving my techniques and stayed away from online marketing, till now.

Fast forward to today, Wow! Things have really changed! I love it. Sites are interconnected, exporting, and importing from spread sheets that have my common inventory is now implemented. Website builders are easy and customizable and, well just amazing. Cross communication between sites has never been easier. Lots of the features I needed in a shop like Etsy have been implemented. Way to go technology. There are still going to be chores, but things got way way easier.

I would like to think that my work has become more sophisticated as it has evolved and as I learn to master my craft. I love making jewelry more today than yesterday, and each day I learn something more, new, interesting about my craft.

So I am back, and it is a good feeling. I look forward to presenting my new works as time goes on. Hopefully my designs appeal to you. Thanks for visiting.
