Artist Profile October 2019 Emily Mann


Emily Mann describes her work as Rustic-Refined ornamental and functional metalwork incorporating light play and various mediums like glass and mica. Inspired by the countless color tones & textures, and the magic of rainstorms, her work draws upon the flora and flow of the landscape, and truly flourishes after a nice long hike or challenging mountain bike ride. The hardness of the medium is softened by a woman’s touch and whimsy; the rustic nature is made sophisticated by intricate designs, tailored finishes and inlaid glass.
