Matthew Naftzger

Pittsburgh, PA

While my work has the feel of found objects, everything is fabricated using traditional jewelry methods, as well as TIG welding and small metal lathe-work. I picture my creations similarly being found by a yet-unknown culture in an uncertain future. Re-purposed objects have their own evolution, including dead-ends, mistakes and miscalculations. The pieces may be functional in a Rube Goldberg-esque fashion or purely dysfunctional. A bit of fiction within the function?
