Intro
Maria Eife is an American artist living and practicing in Philadephia.  With a BA in Jewelry and Metals from the Tyler School of Art Temple University, Eife's artistic practice innovatively combines traditional craft skill and values with new technologies.  The creative experimentation of these works pushes the borders of virtual and wearable as well as craft and design.

Statement

Combining traditional craft skill and values with new technologies, I aim to create elegant, playful and structurally complex adornments that compliment the wearer and intrigue the viewer. My most recent collection, Loops and Cages, is the result of virtual, three-dimensional building. Using CAD software, I create complex forms that are printed in plastics or wax, and later dyed or cast in precious metals. I use CAD and 3D printing in combination with traditional crafts skills to create complicated forms that require these tools to exist.
