My Guest this Thursday, August 23rd at 3 p.m. PDT/6EDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is Pat Robinson Schmidt, creator of the book Such Capable Hands
About Pat: I am a jewelry maker, a botanical painter, and am in the process of bringing these two disciplines closer together. Presently I am working on acid-etching original drawings and photographs as surface decoration for my pieces. My focus right now in painting is creating botanical tessellations. I am planning to work these patterns into my metal-work.
About the book: "Such Capable Hands is a book of personal stories from 16 jewelry artists around the World. These stories detail remembrances of childhood events that sparked dreams and began lifelong creative paths. For some artists, the path was not straight and sure, interrupted by life events and adverse circumstances. The drive to create and express was a strong force for each, and led them to teach themselves skills and techniques and to seek out specific schools and teachers when possible. The hard work and determination got these artists to the point where they are today. Their love of jewelry and the creative process is evident in their work.
While Such Capable Hands has images of the artists and their hands, their work can be viewed on Pinterest boards. Pinterest serves as an evolving, growing collection of the artists’ past and current work. Every week images are added, illustrating their growth and change over time.
