An event every day that begins at 10:30am, repeating until June 5, 2021
In collaboration, WaterWorks Gallery and Seattle Metals Guild Presents
April 22 – June 5
A magpie is a creature that loves collecting bright and shiny objects. Micki Lippe, renowned jeweler and magpie extraordinaire, welcomed 15 jewelers from the Seattle Metals Guild into her studio nest of trash.
Transforming a bit of the tread from a car tire, it becomes a dark, black matte surface. A piece of broken glass takes on a mysterious beauty. All these objects collected by Micki, have been transformed by each artist into a newly constructed piece of wearable art.
Engaging you to rethink your concepts about what is precious, each piece in this Magpie series creates a visual narrative of its own.
