MICHAEL HERMESH

perfect-symmetry-on-a-cloudless-day-vii-2

Perfect Symmetry on a Cloudless Day VII

Ceramic  25 x 7 x 6

$3000

“The beauty of seeing what is really there, somewhat like the fool who sees the emperor has no clothes, the absolute reality, solidity and weight of the rock does not exist to impede the balloon’s flight.” – Michael Hermesh

getting-to-know-you-iv-2

Getting to Know You IV

Ceramic  25 x 11.75 x 6.5

$3000

“My sculpture is about what makes us human and about what give us spiritual dignity and strength. My pieces always portray a dynamic aspect of living (force and counter force). I do this through composition, the effort, the restraint and through the battle of spirit with the constraints of situation.” – Michael Hermesh

LINDA FREEDMAN-KATZ

fl166-monterey-neckpiece-arg-silver-and-bronze

Monterey Neckpiece

Argentium Silver & Bronze

$395

“The Monterey Neckpiece was created with different sizes of misshapen hand-forged Argentium Sterling Silver rings which were looped randomly with wonky fired Bronze rings. This piece is a contradiction: informal and casual yet refined and elegant. Adding a twist of the unusual always makes me smile.” – Linda Freedman Katz

fl169-stridangle-bracelet-arg-silver-and-bronze

Stridangles Bracelet

Argentium Silver & Bronze

$395

“The Stridangles Bracelet integrates striated texture with hand-hammered heavy Argentium Sterling Silver rings in a melange of texture, shape and colour. My goal is to create an eye catching piece which I refer to as an ‘updated charm bracelet’, a versatile piece to wear every day or for special occasions.”  – Linda Freedman Katz

Derelict

Yellow Cedar  11 x 14 x 5

$475

“I have learned that to experiment and take risks is to court success. I want to express the natural splendour of the wood while enhancing it with the human touch.  I want it to be unique, the hand of one person enabling nature’s inherent strengths and beauty. I try to do that by testing both the limits of my skills and the assets of the nature I am working on.” – Bruce Edmundson
