  • After completing a one week intensive with a seasoned silversmith, these are some of the pieces that came out of these new skills. 
  • Initially started as a 100 day project, Tia chose to continue making one piece a day and is on her way to 365.  Changing structures have been added and removed of the cours of the project including a 100 dot grid for the first 100 days, nothing more than the 9x12 paper for the second 100 days, and not painting with one color (indigo) for the third hundred.

  • Working with the very basic skills, tools, and concepts, Tia tip-toed her way into working with metal through the BENT Collection.

  • #100daysofcreativebalance was started on April 4, 2017. Committing to one piece (and one piece only) a day, each piece started with a 10x10 dot grid. The daily practice continued on after day 100 (July 14, 2017) but the grid was not carried forward. The 100 day project was installed at ASI for two months from August-October 2017.
