This is an excerpt from Willa Wirth's website that we co-wrote, after I designed her site. It captures the experience she enjoys in the production of each piece she creates, demonstrating her personal investment in the quality of her work, while also encouraging custom requests from clients.
The Artist's Statement
I use silver wire. I form it. Forge it. Solder it. As it begins to take shape, something special is captured. Something bigger than you or me.
Each piece is a birth of something I have yet to completely know until it has arrived. Like a person, each piece names itself.
The relationship with this process is sacred and intimate. I put my heart into my work. I am awed with what my soul has to share. It is my responsibility, and mission to contribute this experience, this pure essence of life to the world through my work.
I will never stop exploring. I will continue to tap into the vastness of the beauty of life and articulate my feelings through the silver. I welcome you to participate in this process, allowing me to forge your vision into a piece which resonates with you.
It is my hope that I bring light to others with shiny memoirs to be worn close to the hearts of each traveler roaming this earth. It's a journey. Let us enjoy the ride with something unique to wear.
