Free earrings for your mama!

opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

Mother's Day is coming up and if my mom taught me anything, it is how to be a generous gift giver (of course that's in addition to her being a crazy awesome selfless giver of love, support, and fun!) . So in celebration of my mom and all your superwomen moms out there, I'm giving a free pair of matching earrings with all necklace purchases this week. 

No need to do anything extra, no code needed. I'll simply include a pair of earrings with every necklace purchase. Free!

Through this Sunday, May 7th.

Copper leaves for you?!

new work, opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

This Saturday is the Pratt auction and your chance to own Part You, the collaborative copper leaf sculpture we all made! Imagine an interior or exterior wall of your house covered in copper leaves, or a growth of them floating down from your ceiling, or perhaps a shelf of your bookcase converted to a forest floor diorama, or ??? The possibilities are only limited by your space and/or imagination! Comment below if you have another great display idea or location for this unique piece...

CG Sculpture and Jewelry is currently in the throes of prepping for a variety of shows and looking for interns...

You will gain experience in a variety of ways:
- working small and large scale in both jewelry and sculpture
- working with metal, primarily non-ferrous: forming (holloware), fabricating, welding, soldering, sawing, filing, hand finish work, patinas, etc
- vitreous enamel (kiln fired)
- understanding how production works and best practices
- working first hand with the public on a community art piece
- setting up and interacting with public at small indie type shows
- setting up an installation in a fine art gallery

Ideal candidates are:
- reliable
- detail oriented
- have at minimum basic metals knowledge (or more!)
- driven to learn/experience
- willing and able to hear directions and follow through
- available immediately through the end of the year

Flexible scheduling but weekdays preferred. Reliable transportation to South Park (about 15 minutes south of downtown Seattle) is required.

Internship is unpaid but as a token of appreciation and accomplishment, interns receive a music box from my Constructing Deconstruction series after completion of 100 hours. http://catherinegrisez.com/music-boxes/

Contact Catherine at c@catherinegrisez.com. If applicable send resume, work samples, and/or website link and reason for interest.

Part You is up to 200!

classes/lectures, for funCatherine GrisezComment

It's been great fun working with many of you to create the growing leaf pile for Part You! We've got 200 leaves ready to go so far. Bellevue Art Museum, Pratt Fine Arts, South Park Arts, Tin Dog Brewing, and Seattle Office of Art and Culture have all been fantastic sponsors - looking forward to more! Next event is October 27th at Pratt from 6-9:30pm. Stay tuned for more details...

Part You - a collaboration between artist and community, encouraging all to break from routine, use your hands to create, and raise money for others to do the same in the process

Part You - a collaboration between artist and community, encouraging all to break from routine, use your hands to create, and raise money for others to do the same in the process

Be a part of something bigger than yourself -- join me in the making of an interactive art piece. Learn to press, hammer and form copper foil into 3-dimensional leaf shapes to create components for a sculpture. Together we will create a giant exploding leaf pile, reminiscent of one you’d jump in as a kid when a sense of wonder was more easily found in simple pleasures. You’ll be able to see your handiwork installed in a show at Traver Gallery January-February of 2017.

Once complete, the sculpture will be donated to the annual Pratt art auction to raise money for art classes for under-served teens.

Thanks everyone for supporting independent artists and small business this holiday season. I'm thrilled to have my creations be a part of so many of your holiday gifts this year. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate!) and welcome the new year with enthusiasm (and champagne!).
