Intro
This two-person exhibition features the work of Teresa Faris and James Thurman. Both metalsmiths employ non-traditional materials and labor-intensive processes in the making of their pieces. Repetition and ritualized actions are essential aspects of their studio practices.

Artist list

Teresa Faris, James Thurman
Teresa’s ongoing CWaB series (Collaboration With a Bird) uses cast-off materials such as reclaimed perches and wood that have been altered and discarded by a captive bird and placed with sterling silver support structures. James’ current Vessel+Wearable series combines small handmade metal vessels with jewelry serving as lids, providing a home for the jewelry when not adorning the body. Exhibited together, the dialogues present in each individual piece combine to form larger connections between materials, processes, and function.
