Guest Star Friday #104...Susie Ganch
Susie Ganch has been one of my metalsmithing heros for years. I met her at Penland in 1999 the first time I took a class there. She was a resident artist then and her work really impressed me. Over the years we have stayed in touch and have become good friends. I'm in Richmond, VA for the Hand-Crafted Entrepreneurship Symposium and get to spend a day with Susie tomorrow which I will post on next week. In the meantime, I want to share her work with you now. I've always liked her forms, surface treatments, and use of materials. Her latest work uses enamel to create distressed and highly texturized surfaces and the pieces are both minimal and luxurious.
Thanks for reading.
