The Justified Sinner comes to teach at SCC

The JUSTIFIED SINNER, renowned Scottish artist DAUVITALEXANDER, is bringing his Cabinet of Curiosities to the Society for Contemporary Craft. 

Influenced by musician John Cage, architect Frank Gehry, metalsmith Bob Ebendorf, jewelry worn by Renaissance men, and children's TV shows from the 70's, this eccentric award-winning artist has been a finalist in the PMC Studio Open Competition and exhibited as part of the Goldsmith’s Hall Craftsmanship and Design Awards, as well as exhibiting this year in the Landfill Art Project here in Pennsylvania and Beneath The Skin at the Sheffield Institute of Arts in Sheffield, UK. The work shown here is The Four Cocktail Rings of the Apocalypse. More information and other examples of the artist’s work can be found at Dauvit Alexander’s website. He also has a great Etsy Site with really affordable work.
