Marcia Meyers

 

Marcia Meyers is intrigued by the shapes of scraps ‘left behind’ in her studio, producing strong new work from the negative shapes--the leavings of earlier pieces.

 “For me aesthetic integrity, purity and even freshness depend in large part on the highest levels of craftsmanship I am able to attain at any stage of my development.  Working in my studio to improve skills and knowledge, I feel like a “kid in a candy store”.  There will always be more to learn and ways to improve.  I know I will never tire of this exhilarating process.

 

My work involves a variety of techniques, including mill rolling, hydraulic press and/or die forming, depletion gilding, keum bu, and of course, cutting and soldering.

 

I have a bachelor’s degree in design and tailoring from Texas Tech and a master of fine arts degree from Cranbrook Academy.  I have taken post degree workshops with Andy Cooperman, Pat Flynn, Micki Lippe, Sarah Perkins and Linda Darty."
