Next we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Wells.
Jennifer Wells completed her M.F.A in Jewelry Design from East Carolina University in 2010. She was the metals artist in resident at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN for 2010-2011, after which she moved to Columbia, NC for a two month long residency at Pocosin Arts Folk School. She also held a month long residency at the Jentel Foundation in Banner, WY. She has exhibited nationally and taught workshops at both Pocosin and Arrowmont. For the summer of 2012, Jennifer was a Summer Assistant for Haystack Mountain School of Craft in Maine. Since that time she has been a visiting artist for Universities, taught and assisted workshops. Jennifer enjoys long walks and all that glitters.
Working with steel wire has gained great momentum within our field. I will be demonstrating using cold connections to create forms from steel wire. By coating the piece in enamel we will give durability to the form and also incorporate color. Setting and riveting techniques for the enamels will be demonstrated. Residency opportunities will be discussed in the slideshow and questions are encouraged.
Please check back tomorrow for more previews of whats to come.
