"My current work reveals my fascination with different cultures. Originally inspired by the Northwest Coast Indian primitive sculptures, the designs exhibit influences from numerous cultures and many travels.
I work directly in the metal, allowing the material an expression of its own and achieving a greater spontaneity of form. Contrast of textures and shapes, and the use of unique stones both precious and non- precious enhance the total design." - Sharon Schaffner
