Now that Craft Cubed is all set up and running, I finally found a bit of time to catch up on some of my blog reading and what did I find? Northcity4 tenant Sam Mertens featured recently over on the Black Finch blog; here, here and here.
His work is beautiful!
Sam studied gold and silversmithing at the Australian National University and completed a degree with honours in 2007. He is a jeweller and object maker who uses traditional and contemporary techniques in the making of his work. Sam is inspired by pattern, shape and the qualities of materials. These basic elements are manipulated to create objects and jewellery that interact with the environment around them and the wearer.
