SUSAN WESCHLER CIRCLES Flyer.jpg

About Susan Wechsler: 

"I have a BFA from the University of Michigan in sculpture, and an MFA from NYU in costume design. After a suggestion from my mom to mosaic dresses, I happened upon the perfect dress form to turn into art. I bought fifty and began a signature series of sculptural mosaic dresses that perfectly reflect my artistic background in both sculpture and theatre design. These dresses became my signature piece that garnered attention worldwide.

My body of work also includes shrines and animal totems, which can be found in hotels and private collections nationwide. In addition, my new contemporary series explores patterns found in the industrial and in nature, and mixing the two in complementary compositions. 

I'm a mixed-media mosaic artist, and every piece I create begins with the gathering of discarded treasures to form a 'palette' that I then use to decorate a hand-made substrate. From there, I surrender to process and let the piece unfold as fast as my hands can keep up with my creative mind. This is the art process I both work in and teach to create fine art mosaic pieces."

FOUR DAY POP-UP WITH PULSO JEWELRY FROM MOAB

Pulso Flyer.jpg

Modern Nomad is please to host jewelry artist Jenny Lorber from Moab, for a four day trunk show.

The pop-up will be open daily, August 23rd-26th. 

ABOUT PULSO JEWELRY:

PULSO | /ˈpulso/ (v.) I push, strike, beat, hammer; knock on; pulsate

"I chose this name to emphasize the connection we all share. Each time the hammer strikes the metal, it sends through it a pulse that will continue to subtly vibrate long after the piece has left my hands and found yours. This pulse mimics the pulse beating within all of us, connecting us in a quiet harmony. We are all pulsing, full of spirit and life, on this earth. And the earth carries with it its own pulse which is passed on to you through its stones and metals."

The Artist
"My connection with jewelry runs deep. Most girls develop a love for jewels and gems at a young age, but it wasn’t until I began making jewelry that I discovered the magic lying dormant in each stone, the potential in each piece, the potential within myself. Jewelry making is very tactual, visually-stimulating and often methodical. It has a quiet, meditative spirit that heals. I design and handcraft each piece in my studio located in the high deserts of Moab, Utah." 

The Designs
"For me, jewelry is more than just an accessory. It is a statement, an opinion, a piece of wearable art. I am an advocate of being proud of all aspects of your jewelry, not just how it looks but also who made it, how they made it and why they made it. My style is an ode to the simplicity of a stone in its raw, natural form, the palette of colors in nature’s canvas, the rich textures on our bare feet as we walk across the earth and I am guided by the arts of the ancient world, the spirits of ancient women and the ancient knowledge that we are all one." 

The Cause
"I see all businesses as an opportunity to market images and stories that raise consciousness about human rights and environmental issues. 5% of Pulso Jewelry’s proceeds is donated to a different social and global causes for change each month. You can find Pulso Jewelry on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about this month's cause and to share a cause you think needs more attention."
