Mansfield and Collins

Mansfield+Collins

"We enjoy the freedom of trusting this unique process to discover innovative means of expression. "

Tish Collins, a metalsmith, and Mary Mansfield, a sculptor and painter, want to see what is possible in blending their two crafts. They start with traditional media—drawing, ceramics, metals, woodworking—and use them in an unconventional manner. Their techniques are the result of intermingling skills and artistic vision, resulting in works of art that take numerous days to complete.

Each artist executes her particular expertise on each piece. There is a part of the process they do together, which entails hours of sanding with orbital sanders and by hand. There is no judgment about the process or the art that results. This dual expression just ends up on one piece. There is much joy creating in the studio, which is located at the foot of the largest flattop mountain in the world.

Both artists are self-taught, with a combined 30 years of experience. Both women have had private instruction. Collins has also attended Penland School of Crafts. Mansfield has taken master classes in bronze and a two-year apprenticeship with a master mold maker.
