Sharon Tuke is inspired by architecture, bridges, industrial design, constructivist art, and found objects (especially smashed rusty stuff!). In her art, she emulates the nature of construction when cutting, bolting, and bending gold and silver into modern forms.
Sharon builds an artifact of a moment through my work, like a dog that howls when hearing a fire engine's siren. I have a conversation with my environment - she sees it as a journal of my passage through time and of the many places I have visited.
Though she works alone as an artist, she constantly collaborates with customers and fellow artists. Sharon enjoys the personal contact provided at trade shows and craft fairs balanced with the solitude of crafting the work in her sun-filled Boulder studio.
