Patchwork Patterns

Abigail Heuss Bio Photo

Abigail Heuss is an Assistant Professor of Art at Valdosta State University, where she currently teaches metalsmithing courses. She received her MFA from East Carolina University and a BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Abigail’s work focuses on domestic and wearable objects that reflect a unapologetic and sentimental narrative. Her work is based on traditional metalsmithing techniques, but often incorporates multiple medias.

Abigail’s workshop will be focused on marriage of metals, which is a inlay technique similar to connecting puzzle pieces. She will demonstrate how to create patterns using multiple colored sheet metal that become one and serves as an elegant surface design. It is a great technique that allows for subtle patterns and imagery, that can speak on its own or be further manipulated into complex forms. We are excited to welcome Abigail back as an Alumna of ECU.
