Insightful AJF Interview with Jamie Bennett

Starting in May, American jeweler Jamie Bennett has a delightful show at Antonella Villanova contemporary jewelry and design gallery in Florence, Italy.  AJF’s Susan Cummins poses some interesting questions to the artist.  

From the interview:  I really do not try to make things that appear as whole or complete, both in the surface imagery and in the forms I use. I work by accumulating from varied sources, some tangible and some not. In my mind, they are like frames from a film. I begin to juxtapose them in no particular order. These are fragments or glimpses, not complete on their own, but I hope compelling and suggestive in their mutual presence.  Read the whole interview.

A great reason to visit Maine this summer

I’ll be teaching at Haystack, July 28 – August 9.

From the class description: Using direct observation of the Haystack landscape environment, workshop participants will create work using direct method casting techniques and a variety of digital photo-etching processes. Botanical samples, centrifugally cast in silver or bronze, will offer an initial point of departure.
