Artist Statement

The objects I create are inspired by architecture, nature as an architect, and my desire to build. The process of building is what captivates me: how decisions are formulated, elements are organized, and structures evolve from an idea. In creating the Balance earrings for this exhibition, I approached the work as a collaborative project, aiming to preserve the original essence of the buttons by framing them. It was also important to me to ensure that the artist Marie Thompson's signature and hallmark remained visible on the back of the pieces, alongside my own.

Artist bio:
A studio jeweler and educator for over twenty-five years, Sarah Chapman's academic background is a hybrid of studio art and education studies at Northeastern Illinois University combined with an ongoing love for self-directed exploration of metalsmithing through research and workshops. Chapman makes hand-fabricated metal jewelry and sculpture, aesthetically merging the industrial and natural worlds with an emphasis on functionality. Sarah shows her work in galleries and juried exhibitions across the country and currently maintains an active studio practice in Minneapolis.
