I’ve recently graduated with a shiny, new MFA. Yay! Which of course
means that I’m also looking for a job. One area I’m especially
interested in bench work- particularly in the Portland, OR area, but
I’m open to just about anywhere on the West Coast, particularly LA &
(Since there’s no real opportunities for metalsmiths in my hometown
& no way in any circle of Hell that I was going to stay in the flat,
frozen tundra that is North Dakota, I basically picked a city that I
wanted to live in. And then I found out how many friends I have on
the West Coast & they all seem to want me to move to their city.).
I’m also interested in working in a prop shop or stop-motion
animation house, as those jobs would also involve making small,
highly detailed objects.
I know some of you aren’t exactly keen on hiring art grads for bench
work, but I also know that others are happy to have someone with some
experience in working with jewelry fabrication.
Anyways, if anyone is hiring or could point me towards some people
are, feel free to contact me off-list.
