Biographical Information for Joan Hammond:
Joan Hammond began working in metal in 1994, when she started taking metalsmithing classes as an antidote to documenting computer software.Prior to that, she studied painting, printmaking, and design at the University of New Hampshire and the University of Washington. After graduating, she moved to Japan for three years to study calligraphy and tea ceremony. She continues to travel and collects ethnic jewelry and textiles. The flora and fauna of the natural world inspire her current work, which Hammond executes using the techniques of chasing and repoussé. She exhibits locally and nationally, and her work has been published in Metalsmith magazine's Exhibition in Print. She is an active member of the Seattle Metals Guild, Northwest Designer Craftsmen, and the Society of North American Goldsmiths. Hammond lives in Sammamish, WA, with her husband and two cats.
