Jennifer Howard Kicinski

Jennifer Howard Kicinski's entire portfolio is amazing but I especially love her work from 2002-2004. The artist (and current president of the Seattle Metals Guild) somehow transforms such earthly materials as silver, silk, nylon and resin into otherworldly sculptures — including hearts as you've never seen them before. The ten rings in her "blood and ice" series (sterling, hand carved acrylic, paint and resin) are beyond stunning. They might, in fact, be what kids these days refer to as "the shiznit." This photo doesn't do them justice but the other photo on her website just might. You'll have to visit and see for yourself.
