James and Umut Demirgüç Thurman: Synergies
Jan. 30 – March 7, Opening Reception on Jan. 30 at 5:00 p.m.
James and Umut are partners, both in their marriage as well as in their collaborative studio work. James has a background in sculpture and metalsmithing that has led to the creation of Thurmanite®, a layered paper-resin composite material he uses in much of his work. Umut has a background in textile design, metalsmithing, and enameling, which all manifest themselves in her studio work and designs. Collaboratively, they create a wide variety of work, from wearables to home furnishings. Their newest body of work unites Thurmanite® with enameled components into new and exciting combinations.
