Part of the 400 Square family, 400 W. Rich is a group studio site where you will find 12 COSS artists in 10 separate studio spaces. You can park on the street (all spaces are at this time unmetered), in the gravel lot on Lucas and Rich (free), or the parking structure behind River & Rich off McDowell (small fee). To enter, walk east on Rich to the open gated lot just before the railroad bridge, and walk toward the back of that space (follow signs) to the garage door entrance. There you will be greeted by a volunteer with a map of the COSS participating studios within 400. Do NOT use the brightly colored doors on Lucas—those are secure doors for artists only. Be sure the visit my fellow 400 Square artists while you’re here!
Andrea Kaiser is a jewelry artist who uses metals to authentically connect with herself and others. She started metalsmithing as a hobby while she was working in fashion design and quickly found it to be a perfectly intimate outlet for the endless inspiration she finds in shapes, lines, textures and patterns.
I blend nuance and geometry with storytelling to create pieces made to celebrate and embolden your strong, natural spirit. Pairing natural imagery with minimal, strong lines, I aim to capture the complimentary contradictions of life. Humble and celebratory, strong and vulnerable, magical and everyday, simple and spirited.
I will do demonstrations of sawing and filing, showing the hand-based techniques that take silver from sheets to components.
