I’m really excited about this post because I actually got to watch my first artist in action. She was at Second Sunday at Goggleworks in Reading, PA.
I watched in awe as pieces like these were made by the owner of Skylark Studios. She hand cuts each piece, and it’s a wonderful process to behold. I know I don’t have the patience for this type of work. To get this type of intricacy from a piece of sterling silver is amazing. If you get a chance to visit the Goggleworks, I really hope you can see this artist at work.
Kale Primitives also hand carves metal, with a different, but no less amazing look. What is really neat abut the work in this shop is that the metal is also kiln fired and tumble polished. It gives the pieces a really “old” feeling. Right now the shop is filled with bronze pieces, but the shop announcement says that silver pieces are coming. I, for one, can’t wait.
