Teapot By Tom Muir


While it is difficult to encompass all aspects of jewelry making and metal smithing within one show, the objective is to exhibit a collection that embraces traditional techniques, innovative methods of construction or process, use of technology, emphasis on concept or formal elements of design, and excellence in craftsmanship. These pieces will be on display to educate and inspire the broader public, including students, about the breadth of talent and complexity found in metalsmithing and jewelry design.
