This coming Friday evening from 5-7 and Saturday 10 - 4, we are excited to have long-time gallery friend, Mary Hamby, back in the gallery with her incredible handmade and artful jewelry for a one-day pop up. In addition to the jewelry you know and love, Hamby will be bringing her gorgeous woven blocks and a few beginners loom kits. Any of these would make a fabulous and unique gift for that artsy in your life. Read below and watch the video above to learn a bit more about Hamby’s goal and process with Twenty Two West.
“I am a full time artist working out of my studio in Charlotte, North Carolina. The name of my business, Twenty Two West, comes from a place that inspires me - the address of the home where I grew up in Greenville, South Carolina. My goal is to combine nostalgic roots with modern designs in each of my handmade pieces. I use the classic techniques of weaving, ceramics, and woodworking to create wearable art and to build approachable sculptures that suit the modern home.
My interior design background pointed my aesthetic toward character-driven art that has a clear focus and an emphasis on texture. My art has been a way to connect with other craftspeople for sourcing handspun, naturally dyed fibers, sustainably sourced wood, and community driven ceramics.” - Mary Hamby
