Brooke Marks-Swanson, Metalwork - "My work is fueled by a deep appreciation for the history of craft and the process of making with my hands. I am drawn to the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. fabricating, painting, scratching, removing, adorning. Resulting in pieces that provide information of the past while speaking of the present. On the surface a dialog of contrast develops that lead to questions."
