Booth #: GS16Artist Statement: This jewelry is constructed of reclaimed wood and bead or pearl accents.
Artist bio: Griffith draws upon his industrial design education to create work that is minimal yet warmly inviting. His work has been exhibited nationally at Des Moines Arts Festival, Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, American Craft Exposition, MAD About Jewelry, and elsewhere.
After studying the furniture making techniques of bent lamination and steam bending, I was able to scale down the processes for jewelry making.
My work is inspired by African jewelry and curvilinear wood furniture.
