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:
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If applicable send resume, work samples, and/or website link and reason for interest.
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...
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.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate!) and welcome the new year with enthusiasm (and champagne!).
