At Splash Gallery:
Artistry in metals + authentic sea glass creations by Robbi La Londe:
Nothing is more rewarding than knowing that something I have put my heart and soul into making brings pleasure to another person. Recently I decided there was no time like the present to start working with my very best pieces of sea glass, and these creations are on display at Splash Gallery!
I use authentic morsels of glass that are true pieces of human history, often taking hundreds of years to be formed by the sea and sand. It is this mystery and uniqueness that informs my desire to create one-of-a-kind objects of beauty to wear on the body or to adorn the home.
I take a sculptural approach with my work, and have been deeply influenced by the jewelry of Alexander Calder. I no longer employ any soldering but instead rely on wrapping, shaping, and forging. I work with Argentium silver, stainless steel, copper, bronze, and brass to create delicate, sophisticated items as well as bold structural pieces. My newest works include Tabletop and Hanging Meditative Mobiles made from a balanced arrangement of artifacts to inspire peaceful moments. I like to think of them as jewelry for the home on display for all to enjoy.
