Our Autumn exhibition celebrates contemporary artists that aren't afraid to push limits by moving away from classic designs and towards recognizable imagery.

A: Appalachian State University
Q: What inspires your work?
A: humanities concept of value in relations to the natural world.
Q: Do you have a favorite piece you've made?
A: Yes, ex unitate Necklace
Q: What made you want to start making jewelry?
A: I found it as a child and it continued to peak my interest throughout the years. I have a fondness of little things, am prone to hyper focusing on tiny details, a sentimental nature, and a love of discovery; these, among other things, can be fed though my practice of making jewelry.
Q: What is your favorite process? Why that one over others?
A: That would be like saying I have a favorite child! I love them all and rotate which one suits my preference constantly depending on the day.
Q: Who is your favorite artist/who do you wear?
A: Bob Ebendorf
Q: Is there an artist on your personal wishlist that you hope to own one day?
A: Ute van der Plaats
Q: What is something you would want someone to know about your work that they might not know?
A: Plants, bones, precious metals, gems and minerals, are all meant to carry equal weight in "the narrative" of my work. I like to think of my pieces as little lifecycle abstracts of different organisms coming together, feeding one another.
Q: When you're not making jewelry, what are you doing?
A: Gardening! Although technically that could pass as making jewelry, I cast many plants I grow to incorporate into my work.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?
A: Thank you so very much for including my work in the exhibition!
