Patrice and Craig Kassan

exhibiting their wall sculptures and earrings.
Craig Kassan: The idea for my wall sculptures came about on a trip to Salt Lake City. During the flight I became intrigued with the patterns created by the plots of land as well as the crop circles from the farms below. By the time the plane landed, I had two pages of sketches and a head overflowing with ideas. To mimic the plots of land, I have arranged my wall sculptures as polyptychs. The individual pieces are raised above the applied metal background, adding more depth and character to the finished sculpture.

Patrice Kassan: I have never considered myself much of an "artist".
I married an artist, Craig, inspired by his work, I rescued a beautiful piece of wood from our fire-pile that was left over from something Craig had made & made myself a pair of earrings. Then a friend saw my earrings & wanted a pair & then her sister wanted some for presents & here I am.
