BIRDS IN THE HAND JEWELRY
Avian Inspired glass jewelry
Hand-made, one-of-a-kind, glass wearables
Marc Petrovic and Kari Russell-Pool—internationally recognized artists who have been working in glass for over 20 years. Married, we share a studio in Cleveland, OH with our dog Hank. For nearly two decades we have employed bird imagery as a metaphor for identity and relationships. We formed Birds in the Hand Jewelry to repurpose the leftover glass from Marc’s Avian Series and to playfully reexamine the relationships of the patterns and textures. In his series, birds are reduced to their pixellations; they are built, much like we are, one piece or experience at a time. We take the unused pixels (murini,) and transform them into elegant focused studies for personal adornment.
