“ Chuck selected some beach pebbles and glass from our collection and incorporated them with some of his own finds - the porcelain piece and the “W”. To me it meant water. We also often see a pair of eagles (“wings”) and occasionally whales at our favorite beach so, of course, they too needed to be on the piece. The “wheel” which spins is a glass bead by Dan Adams. The clasp is a compass highlighting “west”.” -Cynthia Toops Photos by Doug Yaple

Sedna was a giant in the olden days. Giants were not very smart and always hungry. There was a famine. Her father took her into a boat to fish, hoping her husband, stormy petral, would come to fetch her. But stormy petral sent a squall. Sedna’s father threw her out of the boat so the boat would not capsize. Sedna would not release her hold on the boat so her father chopped her fingers off so both of them would not be lost. Her fingers became the animals of the land and of the sea. Because of her great suffering Sedna lived at the bottom of the sea and ruled it. When the artic people had a famine, this could mean that Sedna was unhappy because the people were not behaving properly. The people would send their shaman to Sedna to comb her tangled long flowing hair and calm her so she would relent and send the people food to eat. Eugene O’Neill was the first playwright to create original, powerful drama in america. In his autobiographical play ,“a long day’s journey into night” (1941),

A day after seeing the pendant, he said, the black stone in your work is an “inukshuk.” an inukshuk is a human-made landmarker made of stone, used by arctic peoples for navigation, as a point of reference, place of

The inuksuk can also be a distinctive solitary stone positioned upright. Inuksuk means “that which acts in the capacity of a human.” The pendant: sedna’s five fingers dangle from the stone marker. Did she experience the transcendent oneness with existence that o’neill felt when she began to live at the bottom of sea? Has sedna taken away the animals of the arctic because she is angry with our behavior towards the earth?

Part of her Musée Series, this piece is inspired by oye’s visits to the San Francisco Fine Arts Museum and works in their collection: “My intent being to create a modern day context for Old Masters works and reienterpret bodies of work by modern artists as a reflection of our 21st century society and what is considered valuable. My use of repurposed LEGOS® as a material is deliberate as it makes an intimate connection with all generations

worldwide, from child to adult to grandparent. Everyone brings to my pieces their own story, and with it nostalgia for these infamous plastic bricks which are often regarded much like the “family jewels”, being passed down from generation to generation. Specifically, “Portrait” neckpiece is inspired by the silhouettes, colors and hand carved ivory frame from “Portrait of a Lady”, 1591, oil on panel with hand-carved ivory frame by Flemish artist Frans Pourbus the Younger.”

and much more. I make each piece myself by hand in my studio at my home. I combine traditional materials like gold, silver, diamonds and gemstones with non traditional materials including porcelain, wood, resin, bone, copper, bronze and flower petals. I challenge myself to work with no rules while designing but maintaining a level of craftsmanship that makes each piece archival.� -Melinda Risk

“ I love making tiny things, they seem very personal and can hold many secrets. I still have my doll house furniture from when I was little and my shelves are filled with small precious things that I have collected and created over the years.

Judith Hoyt was born in 1958 in the Catskill Mountains of New York, and has been making art from found metals for over thirty years. Judith’s process is a conversation between the artist and the materials she collects. She takes as a starting point the discoloration,

corrosion, and imperfections of the found material. Her work is included in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum (NY), the Pennsylvania Academy of Arts (PA), The Smithsonian Museum (DC), and the Racine Art Museum (WI).
