Biographical Information for Melinda Risk:

I love making tiny things, they seem very personal and can hold many secrets. I still have my doll house furniture from when I was little and my shelves are filled with small precious things that I have collected and created over the years. The small sculptures that I make happen to be wearable and each tells a story.

My ideas come from everywhere- nature, music, fairy tales, my cats, spirituality and much more. I make each piece myself by hand in my studio at my home. I combine traditional materials like gold, silver, diamonds and gemstones with non traditional materials including porcelain, wood, resin, bone, copper,bronze and flower petals. I challenge myself to work with no rules while designing but maintaining a level of craftsmanship that makes each piece archival. I use a variety of techniques including carving, casting, fabricating, raising, forging, enameling and granulation. I graduated with a degree in Jewelry/ Metals from Kent State University and I am self taught in ceramics.

My work has been sold in galleries all over the country as well as published in:
