Meet Brittany

As a child I spent a lot of time mucking around a little swamp we had in our front yard, I loved the frogs and moss and slime. I learned to notice nature, I was a collector of shells and rocks.
I had projects, always.
When I was 12 my mother signed me up for my first jewelry class- it gave me hammers and torches and I was hooked. I forgot about the swamp and became a city person.
I got a degree and built a business with delicate saw work, twisted wires, and custom projects. What I have always loved most is making things, letting someone else’s idea set up the problem left me with my favorite part- figuring out how. My own work was meditation, processes so familiar and comfortable I’d get lost in them. Ten good years went by like this.
Then I moved to a tiny town in the far North woods of Minnesota to think about my own ideas for a while. I find myself in a swamp again (technically, this time it’s a bog), back to noticing the moss. I’m taking all that learning and mixing it in with the details of the forest around me.
My work has both my city time and my swamp time, architectural and natural.
