As a student of art history and a lover of art jewelry and metalsmithing, I often find myself reminded of artists or pieces from my art studies when looking at art jewelry. I thought it would be fun to start a new series of posts where I share a little about a jewelry artist or piece and give an intro to the artist or work from art history with which I sense a compliment or connection.
For the inaugural post in this series, we are kicking off with one of my favorite artists, Abstract Expression painter Clyfford Still (1904-1980), and one of the very first artists added to Balefire’s collection, jewelry artist Seth Papac (born 1981).
