Showing & Resolving

I hope anyone living around Portland, Oregon will make it to the "Touching Warms the Art" show at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. The show runs January 19 - March 23, and you'll get to touch and try on the foamie rings made by yours truly along with the work of some other great metalsmith/jewelers.



I've continued making these rings and coming up with a pretty nifty (in my opinion) packaging made from the same spray foam insulation with which I make the rings. I am going to be selling some of them exclusively on Smashing Darling for now (maybe a few in the future on Etsy) and making them in an edition of 52 - that's one a week for the entirety of the next year.


No matter where I am... how busy, tired, burnt out, or uninspired....


......a foamie will be made - every week - that's my New Year's resolution!


Look for the first ones to be posted in my shop on S.D. around the middle of January.

That is so exciting!!! I've been meaning to get down to the Museum of Contemporary Craft...My teacher, Rebecca Scheer helped coordinate that show, I believe.

I think the foam rings are great, and I definitely love the packaging! Spray painting the shapes might also be interesting.

Congratulations!!! I can't wait to see them :)

Looking forward to seeing them on Smashing! I love your work. VERY original.
See you on SD. Thistle Downs wool design.

Catherine! Yes, yes!! I am planning on painting the boxes that house the rings.... the foam becomes more yellow with uv exposure and age. I actually really like that it ages, but am currently trying things like pigments and dyes... and other types of expanding foams with the rings themselves to see what results..... we'll see....
