Martin Anderson

Martin Anderson is a  recent graduate from our Metals Department. I was directed towards his work this summer because coincidentally he and I are working along a similar vein of interest. For Martins  thesis he created jewelry from laser cut Keraflex. Although I intend to work in a  limited color palette of white, grey and black I was immediately attracted to his vibrant use of color.  I was under the initial assumption that he achieved these hues from enamel but his work is actually glazed.

I’m also  intrigued by the construction of Martins necklaces.  I have been struggling with construction throughout my entire process, often getting hung up on the design of my jewelry solely because I have no idea how to connect the ceramic tiles to one another. Martin clearly and succinctly solved his problem with his background in metalsmithing.

 Some of Martin’s earlier work is also very interesting and a little more connected to my own with his use of geometric pattern and volume.
