When & Where
Nyya Lark - Metalsmith Artist / Instructor
Nature and contrasting combinations are the things that feed my imaginaton.
I have been a metalsmithing artist creating wearable art since 1983. The passion began as an avocation while living in New York City, a city of striking contrasts. As I was drawn to create using nature and metal as a medium, I discovered it to be a natural gift and have studied various metalsmithing techniques over the course of my career.
The creative process involves taking the raw materials of precious metal sheet and wire and semi-precious stones and creating works that reflect contrast; soft embracing hard, finished and polished with the raw and uncut - always in balance in the final piece.
