Art Moment: Stacey Lee Webber

Artist Stacey Lee Webber creates unique jewellery and sculpture using a very common item, coins!  She enjoys using found materials and changing them to the point where the original object is almost unrecognizable.

From her website: “Webber’s sculpture is often painstakingly laborious which she uses as a continuous theme throughout her work. The pieces make the viewer question the value of her labor and the work ethic of blue collar America. Her practice incorporates a wide range of techniques including coin cutting, embroidery, metal fabrication, weaving and resin pouring. All of these techniques and more are used to declare the importance of the handmade while challenging these same systems. Webber’s objects are haunting celebrations of liberty and labor.”
