Sharon Stafford Metals
It’s all about texture for Sharon Stafford Metals – visual and tactile textures. The feel of metal always draws her in, whether wire, sheet, smooth, textured, hammered, woven or crocheted. And the visual pull of woven metal never ends – she has to get in closer, understand it, and of course, touch it. Most of Sharon’s work incorporates weaving, crocheting, foldforming, and/or hammering. Current explorations include studying how observations of forms and details in nature impact her work.
Sharon has work currently appearing in “Basketry Now: Tenth Annual Exhibition, 2019,” National Basketry Organization. Sharon won Third Place in the 2018 Lewton-Brain Foldforming Competition. Other recent shows/recognition include: “Ornaments for the Ear, 2018,” Monique Rancourt Jewelry & Artisan Gallery; “Members in Print 2018,” National Basketry Organization; and “2018 Biennial Members Exhibition,” Fuller Craft Museum.
