The folded aluminum perforated sculpture by Ema Tanigaki titled: “One View of Mt Fuji and Great Wave” has won third place in the Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition. Please follow this link to Foldforming.org for more information on the contest and to see the other winners. We are proud to be included with these other beautiful works. The quality of the winning entries seems very high to us this year. Maybe it is the three years that everyone has had since the last competition in 2018, where Ema received the honor of Juror’s Choice.
We thank Sue Lacy and Charles Lewton-Brain for making this most enjoyable contest possible and the gift certificate we were awarded.
Hello All. Please take three minutes to view the video I created to introduce the works I have for sale at the Albuquerque Museum’s Arts Thrive fundraising exhibition, sale and opening auction.
The Exhibition opens on October 9, 2021 starting with an online 3 day auction with bidding beginning on October 7. Although the in person gala has been canceled to ensure our arts patrons remain safe, there is a Saturday Morning Auction preview of the exhibition with limited capacity and safety measurements in place. For those locals who would like to see the works in person before bidding, please take advantage of this opportunity. Those who would like to try on the jewelry before purchase will be assisted by the Museum Staff. If a gold plated version of these jewelry designs are desired, I will take commissions but at a much higher price as material prices are rising at a rapid rate.
For those living more distantly, here is a video we created in studio to give you a better 360 degree view of the new sculptures, and a view of the replacement pieces that will be available. I have also created a slideshow of the works with more detailed information on the individual works. Please see: http://healeystudio.com/TheArtofEmaTanigaki
We are excited to announce that we have discovered a new resource for ultra fine gold plated stainless steel wire. This wire is 0.0005 inches thicker than the previous wire we had custom drawn to our specifications. The new work will be lean more towards sculptural designs than in the past, however some will still be functional jewelry.
Dimensions: approximately 2 x 2 x 1.375 inches
Media: hand crochet gold plated stainless steel wire with glass and rose quartz spheres.
Shown on removable 14K solid gold broach pin. Pin attachment is not included in the price.
Suggested gallery retail price $990
Please note that with the material cost increase for all metals future prices may increase significantly.
Note: this design can be converted from a sculptural object to a broach, necklace or bolo using gold filled wire custom attachments.
