Event Description: David Barnhill and David Huang are craftsmen and artists, merging a love of material with intricate surface design, tooling, and metallurgy. Their collaborative series, Layered Resplendence, blends the unique patterns of Barnhill’s mokumé gane with Huang’s sculptural vessels, adding further complexity and surface variation to their respective artistry. Taken as a whole, their complementary and shared bodies of work speak to the timelessness of metal working, and the enduring fascination both the material and its crafting engender. Whether beaten from a copper or mokumé gane disc, the sculptures within this exhibition are a merging of craft and aesthetic, a blend of the beauty of material and design. Timeless, meditative, and precious, these metalworking masterworks fascinate and delight. Underwritten by DTE Energy Foundation. Additional support provided by Michigan Artists Media Sponsor: Blue Lake Public Radio.
