Lisa Slovis Metalsmithing
Lisa Slovis incorporates movement, function and ritual into jewelry and metal objects for the home. Developed around characteristics of toys and ritual or ceremonial objects, these pieces can be used, manipulated and played with.
Slovis hand-fabricates her objects for the home out of sheet pewter and her jewelry out of sterling silver. Some of the hand-fabricated items are also cast to create multiples. To draw the viewers' attention and encourage interaction, Slovis finishes many of the surfaces of her work with sandpaper and a course file to create a rough and shiny texture.
