Statement: Sarah Tector
An artist since I was able to hold a crayon, working with my hands has always been a natural fit and source of fulfillment. While deciding where to go in life and what to study I was fortunate enough to have parents that said pick a field that would make me happy. Metalsmithing satisfies many parts of my creative brain; designing and making in 3D, using mixed materials, and fantastic tools. And while I have made silverware, bowls, and pendant lights amongst other things, jewelry is the most recognized form of what I can do. I approach it as small-scale sculpture and as a result my pieces catch the eye when on the body or not. I create clean, geometric, and architecturally influenced pieces in sterling silver, gold filled, cast bronze, powder coating, and other mixed materials. These are mainly one-of-a-kind, limited edition, and production pieces of jewelry. Most recently I have been working on collaborations and installations, allowing me to push myself out of my creative comfort zone and the opportunity and challenge of artistic evolution.
