1097 Collaboration: Jillian Palone and Annie Pennington
My long-time friend and colleague Jillian Palone and I began a collaboration in 2011. We went to Undergraduate as well as Graduate school together, and though we have the same metalsmithing family, we have two distinct styles of working. We began this project by creating an individual part for the other person. After our part was finished, we exchanged them and completed each piece, never communicating or sharing photos or ideas. What a fantastic surprise to see how we each interpreted and used the parts in a finished piece! These are the completed pieces from our collaboration. I look forward to more of these exchanges in the future. Follow the link (below) for more photos.
