About Sara Thompson

I’m a silversmith creating utilitarian objects and vessels which integrate concepts of science and mathematics through form. I’m drawn to the simplicity in the process of taking a flat, two dimensional sheet of silver and hammering it into a three dimensional object. The resulting vessel is a form we encounter every day, an object that both occupies space and contains it. Distilling abstruse concepts into tangible and tactile objects through the preciousness of silver, I stimulate my ongoing curiosities into art, craft, and the laws of nature.
