Description

Haywood Community College’s Professional Crafts Program Graduate Exhibition 2022. On display at the Folk Art Center May 21 – September 7.

“My jewelry and assemblage fabrications are inspired by three decades of nursing and caring for ordinary people like me. Despite unique DNA, our frailty is universal – we are fragile souls that hurt, laugh, hope, fear, and feel relieved when good news comes and heartbroken when it doesn’t. Our human stories are powerful. I believe when we share them we find common ground, and hopefully, compassion and grace.

I have been a creative soul all my life and it feels natural to convey my stories through this artistic process. Working with my hands puts me in a zone to sort out my past and find relevancy and meaning for the journey forward. I find purpose in the narratives and hope to encourage dialogue and self-discovery.

My work is comprised of one-of-a-kind pieces and small-scale production lines. I am intrigued by reconfiguring familiar and found items and marrying them precious and semi-precious metals, gemstones, and natural elements. Just like people, these varied components come together and transform into something beautiful to be shared.” – Leslie Jill Howell
