hammered copper leaves for collaborative public sculpture titled Part You

Part You - a collaboration between artist and community, encouraging all to break from routine, use your hands to create, and raise money for others to do the same in the process


Be a part of something bigger than yourself -- join me in the making of an interactive art piece. Learn to press, hammer and form copper foil into 3-dimensional leaf shapes to create components for a sculpture. Together we will create a giant exploding leaf pile, reminiscent of one you’d jump in as a kid when a sense of wonder was more easily found in simple pleasures. You’ll be able to see your handiwork installed in a show at Traver Gallery January-February of 2017.

Once complete, the sculpture will be donated to the annual Pratt art auction to raise money for art classes for under-served teens.

One year ago today sparked the start of an adventure. Looking back to discover how nature taught me to get back up after falling (metaphorically and literally) and the art and jewelry it inspired.
