The matthew.works website sale will be happening! (link in bio)

It’ll start Monday at noon, and last through Friday at midnight. Cyber Monday, small business Saturday, same old Sunday, taco Tuesday… sure, there’s plenty of reasons. I just needed more time with wonderful friends on Thanksgiving, rather than the “rush to buy”. Stick with what’s important! So, my sale starts Monday, after I’ve had some coffee.

All jewelry will be discounted, as well as simple titanium bands. The objects will all have a percentage off, but you’ll have to contact me for that if it’s not listed.

New work will be added every day.
Cheers!

It’s an interesting mix that’s comes out of my studio these days. These just shipped:

On the left, a “crossover ring”, titanium and 14k rose gold. This one is especially organic and wonderful. (I’d like to push all my jewelry work further this direction.) On the right, the latest in the R2 bronze rocket series. Bronze and sterling silver.

I’m enjoying this. (Ceramic by the artist Patricia Sannit)

A small forest of titanium vessels at 2am. Pushing for more work for the Plaza Art Fair in Kansas City this weekend.
Not 100% sure of the name for this new series, but I know the feeling it’ll have. Long ways to go, and a short time to get there. These are basically just the shells, details need to be made and added, everything cleaned up. Then I get to fire up the kilns for the enameling.

Fun stuff.
