Elizabeth Berrien: 50 Years of Wire

A young student’s life was changed forever by the art teacher’s words: “Take this wire and mess with it!” Struggling for years, Elizabeth Berrien applied her love of basketry, weaving and other textile arts to gain control and fluency with the wire. She developed her unique, very personal textile technique of wire sculpture. Evolving it to museum level quality by the 1980’s, when few people were aware of wire sculpture and its validity as an art medium was very much in question.

In the ensuing decades, Berrien accepted myriad public and private commissions, and received dozens of top worldwide awards including a Clio, Obie, Cannes Gold Lions, and international Best of Show awards.

The artist constantly expands her repertoire. From the dragons and unicorns of the 1960’s, she expanded to explore and embrace tigers and wolves, birds of prey, humans, botanicals, microbes and spacecraft... no end in sight…

Emily Cobb

"My artist presentation will reveal the inspiration behind my narrative jewelry and the artistic processes I use to create it.  I will discuss the traditional and digital fabrication techniques I combine in each piece, particularly how I use 3D modelling and 3D printed materials to explore innovative jewelry forms.  After the presentation, there will be physical examples of my work the audience may touch and interact with."
