What a fascinating meet the artist we have for Saturday, September 26th, from 10-5. Gabriel Guzman will be here with his display of intriguingly beautiful jewelry creations. Come and be amazed at designs that have evolved from living in 5 different countries on 3 different continents. You can see the respect and beauty of each country exemplified in his pendants and earrings drawn from the ancient symbolism of these cultures. We can’t help but imagine that his Ph.D. in the field of Microbiology has only deepened his interest in detail and design for he has learned from the master, nature itself.
His process is best described in his own words, “To make my designs come to life in the tridimensional world, every piece goes through a six-step process but I spend most of my time in the creative-designing state. I consider the properties of a particular metal when I produce the first sketches; a lot of detail and fine curves are best achieved with precious metals (gold, silver, platinum), polished semi-precious metals (brass or bronze), or with metal plating (gold, or rhodium) on a base of polished brass. For less detail and a ‘rougher’ or antique look and texture, steel in different finishes (polished gold, polished bronze) would make the piece stand out. “
Let’s give Gabriel a warm Door County welcome and hear in his own words and experience his personal journey through the creative process.
