Yuma Art Symposium 2012

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Yuma Art Symposium with the ASU crew, and it was a lot of fun! I saw some great speakers, hung out with some fun people, and saw some great art!

This year the ASU grad students and our professor Becky McDonah collaborated on trophies for the National Saw, File and Solder Relay Race. This is what we made! Jackalopes! Totally awesome! We also made one for the auction.

The ASU team won 3rd place in the Saw, File and Solder Relay Race! And we won our trophies, so the jackalopes were able to come back home with us!

The ASU gang

At a gorilla art show that Bob Ebendorf and Kat Cole put together! This was so much fun to see! They both do found object work, and they created an impromptu art show in someone's backyard with all of their findings from the area.

Here are all the trophies that were made by different schools (including ours). Everyone did an amazing job.

There were great metalsmiths who spoke this year including Bob Ebendorf, Helen Shirk and Marlene True. It was really interesting to hear Bob Ebendorf talk about his work, since I had never heard him speak about it before. We also went to some antique stores, and ate great Mexican food while we were there! Can't wait to go again next year!

Wedding rings

My sister got married over the weekend, and I made the wedding rings for her and her new husband! They are both made of sterling silver, and the bride's band has three flush set blue sapphires. I'm happy to say that they both love their rings!
