Lynda Bahr

Lynda Fullerton-Bahr

"I find the study of metalsmithing fascinating. The more one learns, the more the work takes on a life of it's own. It grows in refinement and purpose. "

Lynda has always been inspired by the beauty of the natural patterns found in nature. This provides a limitless palette for an artist to draw from. The combination of those textures and colors in conjuction with the architectural structure is what she feels makes her work unique.

There are two techniques Lynda uses that are the basis for the mosaic patterning. They are mokume gane and roller printing. Mokume gane is the more difficult of the two. It involves forming a multilayered billet of colored golds, silver and shakudo .The billet is fired in an electic kiln till the multiple layers of metal form a diffusion bond. This bond makes the layers atomically function as one piece of metal. The billet is carved and reduced in a rolling mill till the desired patterning is achieved.

Lynda received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in 1977 and pursued further studies at Hornsey College of Art in London, England. Upon graduation she spent fifteen years in San Francisco working as an interior architect on large scale corporate work before pursuing jewelry design. She moved to a rural coastal town 45 miles south of San Franciso and started classes with a local silversmith. Much time and effort has been put into self education and learning new techniques.
