Jan Van Diver

"Working with precious metals, gemstones, and enamel satisfies my lifelong desire to create beautiful and interesting objects as well as my love of technical challenges. The transformative nature of the processes and materials is seductive. It's within this creative space that the joy of making exists."

Jan Van Diver begins with a mental concept of a piece but she allows the piece to influence its final design as it evolves. She often works directly with the precious materials without knowing where the piece will take her. The infinite design possibilities ensure that studio time is always stimulating, satisfying, challenging, and joyful.

Van Diver's work is hand crafted from silver, gold, gemstones, and kiln-fired glass enamel. Quality of design and craftsmanship are essential to her. The integration of ancient and experimental techniques with her modern aesthetic is the foundation of her original and evolving body of work.

Jan Van Diver's formal fine arts education serves her well in this three-dimensional world. Her metals and enameling training began with postgraduate study and much experimentation and independent study. She continues to expand her technical vocabulary through workshops and writings generously shared by highly accomplished artists in the metals and enamels world.
