FEATURED ARTIST

Brenda Kessler

 

I’m a mixed media artist who has just recently moved back home to Indiana, where I’m renovating our 100-year-old family farmhouse. For many years I was a freelance lettering artist and worked with both Twinrocker in Brookston and American Greetings in Cleveland.

 

In 2008, I took a PMC class on a whim, and fell in love with it. Now, I primarily work with Precious Metal Clay.   I’ve enjoyed turning my hobby into a business.   Art Fairs have been a wonderful way to meet other artists. Sometimes, I feel like I’ve joined a very funny circus. My work is currently in Twisted Sisters in Indianapolis, Art in Hand Gallery in Zionsville and The Toledo Botanical Garden Gift Shop.

 

PMC is a relatively new product. It is clay comprised of tiny particles of reclaimed silver and an organic binder. It works like clay until it is fired in a kiln, where the binder burns off and leaves you with fine silver (.999).   I try to stretch the limitations of the clay by forming hollow objects. My designs are a direct reflection of my life in the country.

 

My love affair with letters is not over though, as I’m in the process of getting my Chandler and Price Pilot Letterpress up and running. When I’m not in my studio, you can find me outside chatting to my bees or chasing the raccoon out of the potting shed.
