ARTIST STATEMENT
"My work includes both jewelry and metal objects that allow me tothematically combine two important areas of my life, athletics and art. By incorporating movement and function in these pieces, the participant is enticed to interact with them on a more intimate and tactile level. The viewer can have fun with the pieces by touching, playing, and manipulating the arrangement of parts. The utilitarian function in my pieces draws the viewer in and not only allows them, but often forces them to interact with it. Developed around characteristics of toys and ritual or ceremonial objects, these pieces can be used, manipulated and played with."

Lisa Slovis received her BFA at the University of Wisconsin in 1995 and her MFA at San Diego State University in 1998. Slovis presently resides in San Diego, California. She teaches Metalsmithing and Design at a local Community College.
