Below is a sampling of mosaic skulls, jewelry and wall pieces. To see our collaborative sculptures please choose Metal & Mosaic from the menu.
The skulls I embellish are provided by local ranchers. A lot of time is spent cleaning, fixing and simply sitting with each skull. My hope as an artist is that by listening quietly to the spirits of these animals and allowing them to guide my design I can offer them a new opportunity to shine brightly and be cherished.
Working directly in thinset, Sheri creates the "Unearthed" Series by combining an unusual mix of materials to create small vignettes. The focus is on contrast - light to dark, smooth to rough, shiny to matte, rigid to organic. These pieces are tactile 3-dimensional compositions of foraged stones, shards of tile, Italian glass smalti, crystals, shipwreck debris and other objects that could appear to have been recently dug or washed up - basically, they have been unearthed.
