Pam Caidin

All matter and energy in the universe are governed by the same natural forces, and patterns are a visible manifestation of these forces.

My work is an interpretation of these patterns in metal. I make drawings based on found images, then transfer the drawings to metal. Bronze is hand pierced and soldered onto fine silver, or sterling is etched in relief. The patterned metal becomes an element in a hand shaped hollow or domed form and is interspersed with gold elements.
