Profile picture of Aimee A Domash

" It is the journey, not the destination."  The deeper I go into the metalsmithing process, the more there is to learn.  As I travel down the path, I pick up on subtleties that life throws my way.  My work can be organic or contemporary however, there have been a string of constants that have guided me.  Although I may sway off the path, my work always swings back to my design foundation.  My core inspirational design words are: layered, translucent, velvet, vintage, worn, and allure.

It was not until after I graduated from college that my interest in metal became a focal point.  I began taking metalsmithing classes as they would fit into my life.  I have taken workshops all over the US, from well known metalsmiths and authors, which include, Andy Cooperman, Noel Leicht, Dan Haga, Adam Foster, Nanz Aalund, Trish McAleer, Michael Parrett and Sarah Perkins to name a few.

My current focus is on getting my new studio in working order. So much to do and so little time!  As far as my actual work is in constant review and evolving with each day.
