The online magazine Whiskey Dregs has a nice interview, written by Alexis Guerra, with jeweler Sarah Abramson who has been a student and a studio assistant at Penland many times. Here’s the introduction:
Sarah Abramson has a Masters of Fine Arts in Metal from the State University of New York and New Paltz and has had her work and designs displayed at various jewelry exhibitions all over the world. Her jewelry has been displayed in Florence, Italy, the Netherlands, Montreal, Canada, and currently Sarah is an artist in residence at the Museum of Art and Design here in New York City. Sarah has taken her love of two-dimensional drawings and used a variety of inventive techniques to generate her vivid and inventive three-dimensional creations.
If her charismatic personality is any indication of how invested she is in her work and her designs then I’m sure that we can expect a lot more from Sarah in the future. Her looks are fun, vibrant and eye-catching.
Her latest project has been creating pieces for Salon:Inventive Art Jewelry in an Inventable Space. This talented and driven group comprised of mostly Brooklyn-based art and jewelry designers has been a long awaited labor of love for exhibit creator, Mia Hebib. By bringing all of these talented and eclectic artisans together, the Salon exhibit has not only proven to been a truly successful event, showcasing the work of 7 incredibly brilliant creators, but it has also shown that with a little bit of ingenuity, collaboration and hard work, anything is possible.
