ARTIST STATEMENT

Sarah C. Chapman is a studio metalsmith who shows her work at juried art fairs and in Midwest galleries. Sarah works with sterling silver, copper, brass, and sometimes gold to create her jewelry, while patinas are used to give these metals richer tones. Found objects or semi-precious stones often reside in or become a part of her metal structures. Each piece is unique, solely designed and fabricated by Sarah in her Chicago studio.

When Sarah is not in her studio, she can usually be found in her backyard slowly removing areas of cement in order to plant green things.
