Profile franny and metal 75


Franny and Metal

Angie grew up surrounded by the desert. The humbling austerity of this quiet, barren landscape served as a central influence for her work long after she left home, and continues to be a source of inspiration she draws from today. She earned her BFA in sculpture from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa with concentrations in metal and glass. Angie strives to create her work with particular attention to the values of clean line and hollow structure, culminating with her fascination of the interplay between interior and exterior spaces. She believes that utilizing sterling silver as her primary material compliments this aesthetic in that it is a bright yet modest metal, neither outshining nor detracting from form. Each piece she crafts is with the intention for everyday use; thus, timelessness and durability are attributes she meticulously seeks in each of her pieces as well. After years of working as a bench jeweler in Honolulu, HI, Angie began handcrafting her own line, Franny & Metal, in her home studio upon relocating to Austin, TX in 2014.
