Linda Kindler Priest - Beford MA
My small nature-based sculptures are made to be worn. When I see a heron fly, a squirrel standing upright on my doorstep, or a tiger at a zoo, I am amazed by their grace, agility and strength. I try to capture the essence of each living being in metal. The images are sculpted directly into precious metal using an ancient technique called repoussé. This process allows my personality to be embedded into the sculpture. The metal forms are then combined with minerals, crystals and precious stones to create an environment for the particular life form I have sculpted. My small sculptures are a balance of imagery, materials, color and form. They are art that can be worn.
