Intro
Jason Stein is a jeweler, metalsmith, and sculptor living in Matthews, NC. He received his BFA in Metals and Jewelry Design from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2008 and received his MFA in Metal Design from East Carolina University in 2010. He works full-time as a bench jeweler and teaches curriculum classes in jewelry and metalsmithing at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC. His work has been featured in national and international exhibitions and symposiums such as  the “War: Polemos” exhibition at Munich Jewelry Week 2020, “Broken Beauty” at Alliages in Lilles, France, the 2019 Front of The House/Back of The House Exhibition at Heidi Lowe Gallery, Craft Forms 2017 and 2018 at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA, Materials Hard+Soft in Denton, TX, and the 4th and 5th Annual International Belt Buckle Championships.

Statement

The central theme I explore in my creative process and works is the idea of control, both in the physical world around us and within our own consciousness. I am fascinated by the physical means of control we encounter such as locks, ladders, gates, access hatches, and defensive structures. I am also deeply interested in the overt and covert influence of the unseen structures and systems of everyday existence that modify our experiential reality such as storm drains, sewers, utility maintenance areas, steam tunnels, and industrial facilities. My work is also inspired by the textures and forms of the natural world and the geological structures and surfaces that occur. I am drawn to subtleties found in such hard and unforgiving materials and landscapes, as well as humanities impact and efforts to control and extract these precious and desirable materials. I draw inspiration from the historical techniques of excavation, rock blasting, and tunneling, and from this I strive to find the beauty and elegance in often overlooked remnant structures and surfaces.
 
Through the creation of my sculptural forms and objects, I seek to explore the nature of the unconscious mind, and create physical representations and reinterpretations of the structures of my internal mental landscape that represent a re-constructed reality.
 
The internal struggle and battle for control, understanding, and manipulation of our perceived sense of identity can be seen as a form of internal warfare, set against the backdrop of the volatile world and political climate we all must navigate in modern society. By taking ones innermost fears and insecurities and creating physical representations that can be worn and displayed, one is able to identify and control the subconscious forces at play within ones mental landscape.
