The artist, Christina Smith, works in sterling silver using traditional metalsmithing techniques, she creates jewelry and hollowware that is thoroughly contemporary and original. An artist with brilliant technical skills and a great sense of humor, Smith uses the human figure as the basis for her narrative works. Her pieces often depict stories of her relationships with her family, interactions with people and place. She incorporates symbols of favorite pastimes with political commentary seamlessly in her deeply personal, yet strikingly universal, forms. She is truly a poet of the humanity of relationships.
