Slick chunk of metal with a delicate design etched within, wicked spikes fastened to precious pearls, sparkly Swarovski capping a spent .22 – you get the idea. Something that’s always struck me is the idea to contrast the Frontier Days of 1800’s western territory exploration

I’ve thought about that Horace line a lot in the last decade. It’s tattooed on my ribs as a reminder, but momento mori isn’t entirely necessary for a darker mind such as mine. Such as many of ours, mayhap. Life is short. For the lucky folks who love it, the amount of time we have in our bodies is a cruel joke. I’ve always been quite a curious little cat,
Tomorrow night is our artist reception for Kairos!It’s bittersweet to know that this show is my last big public art shabang before hiding away until our sweet little bundle of joy comes this summer. I’m still plotting new metal ideas and putting in time to fill custom work, so don’t think I’m disappearing completely. I’ll also continue to create new pieces for Artists on Santa Fe gallery.

Sometimes you get stuck. Sometimes you get so stuck that you realize your inability to move is causing you to sink. A cascade of misfortunes starts to build, and you hit what feels like a creative rock bottom. I recently enjoyed one such day, and it caused me to doubt everything I’d been working on for the last few months. My show at Artists on Santa Fe Gallery was a
My name is Emily and I’m a six-months pregnant metalsmith. Some days I get sick. Most days I get tired. Every day some body part I’ve never paid attention to screams out in pain, begging me to trade in my bench for my bed. Still, I hammer on. Puns and all.
