Harlan W. Butt, Metalsmith
Experiences are personal and particular to each of us through our lens of self but by trying to break that down and create something beautiful that describes his experience Harlan W. Butt hopes to encapsulate something universal in these remarkable vessels. Their strength lies in the spaces between - between cultures and between the clues about time, place and experience that he gives in the presentation of words and imagery, glass and metal.
