Ann & Stan Rosier are local “Alchemists” (San-Diego-based artists who explore the wonders of metal clay). They are extremely talented practitioners of the art. And they’re good friends.
This post includes three pieces:
– a close-up detail of Felicity a richly textured, beautiful silver metal clay bracelet by Ann;
– Moon Phases, an iconic bronze clay bracelet by Stan;
– and Captured, an amazing necklace that uses Stan’s metal clay and off-loom bead weaving artistry to showcase a hand-made glass cabochon by Gregory Hanson. Greg is the immensely talented Portland, OR glass artist whose unique work has been discussed here before. See more of Greg’s work at http://www.hanson-stone.com/.
All three pieces were shot in my Escondido studio this past weekend using a Nikon D300 camera, Nikkor 60mm macro lens and softbox lighting and reflectors.
