Beginning April 1, the Calder Art Center Padnos Gallery showcased an exhibit that was the result of a collaboration between professor of creative writing Caitlin Horrocks and professor of jewelry and metalsmithing Renee Zettle-Sterling.
“We met years ago, like 2013, and we talked collaboration,” Zettle-Sterling said. However, according to Zettle-Sterling, several scheduling issues prevented the collaboration until this year.
“It all lined up this semester so we could do this... We decided to give the students a prompt about desire. Jewelry is so much about desire, like how people desire wedding rings,” Zettle-Sterling said.
The exhibit, titled “Storytellers/Storymakers,” was a collaboration between three classes: advanced fiction, creative nonfiction and intermediate jewelry and metalsmithing. The writing students were tasked with creating stories themed around the idea of desire. The metalsmithing students were then tasked with creating narrative jewelry based off the stories.
When asked about the process that goes into creating these pieces of jewelry, Zettle-Sterling said that “(the process is) important because casting is the main component. Not everything is cast. It’s a process, done through the lost wax process.”
