Michael Corneau

Influenced By His Study Of Interior And Architectural Design At Rochester Institute Of Technology Where He Earned A BFA, Michael’s Career In Jewelry Design Began After A Fortuitous Accident. Suffering A Severe Eye Injury, He Abandoned His Drawing Table For A Jeweler’s Bench And Began Studying The Craft Of Goldsmithing. As An Apprentice Under Several Masters, He Learned The Art Of Hand-Fabrication. “I Knew In Order To Build The Pieces I Visualized I Needed To Learn Proper Technique.” Much Like The Ancient Artisans Who Only Crafted By Hand, Michael Designs And Builds Each Piece By Hand, Using Basic Stock Metal As Opposed To Purchasing Pre-Fabricated Parts.

 

Britt Anderson

Britt Anderson Works Without Assistance Creating Each Piece By Hand One At A Time. A Master Trained Goldsmith And Apprentice To The Revered Werner Theobald, Britt Employs A Technique Known As Anticlastic Raising Or The Art Of Metal Manipulation. Employing Hand Tools And 100 Year Old Foot Presses, He Raises Hollow Sculptural Forms From Flat Gold Sheet. Britt’s Work Pushes The Elastic Limits Of The Metal And Represents A Formidable Challenge For Any Goldsmith. Many Of The Specialized Tools In Britt’s Arsenal Are Not Common Place Which He Had To Create Himself.
