Kimberly Renee’ is a silversmith and goldsmith specializing in the ancient technique of chasing and repousse’. With the use of various chasing hammers, chisels, and punches, she sculpts flat metal sheets with a distinctive style and expression. The repetitive hammering while moving punches into and along the metal, while pushing–slowly sculpting is ritualistic for her, becoming purposeful and sacred. With every hammer strike, every mark in metal becomes the essence of expression that is intimate and revealed. Inspiration and design for her work originates from personal experiences and connections from the world itself. It is within these realms where reflection and exploration occur for creating artistic aesthetic.
