Each year a huge number of faculty members and alumni from the arts related departments at Academy of Art University put their work up for Annual Faculty & Alumni Fine Art Auction. It goes to a great cause. 50% of the proceeds go to benefit the Academy of Art University's Student Scholarship Fund in their related departments. The remaining proceeds go to the artist. It's a cause I feel strongly about since my contribution, and those of my colleagues in Jewelry and Metal Arts, will end up helping students in our very own department.
I am proud to say that I have a small collection available for bidding this year; a group of my paper jewelry pieces. Each was hand crafted here in my SF studio and have been shown around the world. Most notably in the 2014 Beijing International Jewelry Arts Biennial. Each piece is made of oxidized sterling silver, abaca paper (hand-made by me), acrylic, pigment, nylon, and this really amazing Japanese paper thread.
