Shauna Blythe Burke
I am a NYC based artist, professor and jewelry designer. The New York industrial landscape inspires my artwork. My environment is at once tough, gritty and yet exquisite and vulnerable; I find that this disparity comes together in my art where I combine delicate elements with rough cut stones and textural patterns.
I studied metal-smithing at a vocational school in New York City that trained jewelers to work in the diamond district of New York. After this training I studied and taught metal-smithing and jewelry design in Florence Italy. My work is hand wrought in silver and gold and is process driven. All of my work is created by hand and I love the small subtle perfect imperfections that are pervasive in the handmade.
While ever evolving in style and design, I find that my art always comes back to the industrial and psychologically rich landscape of New York City, my home.
