Elizabeth Brim

Distinguished Artist Series

As a blacksmith, Elizabeth Brim has forged a place for herself in a male-dominated field.
She plays on that contrast in her work with her "unique juxtaposition of the feminine and the ferrous."

Elizabeth has been called a "rebel", spending her time hammering hot steel while wearing her signature pearls. The resulting forms -- a fancy shoe, a lacey camisole, a bench layered in frilly cloth --- are decidedly "girly" objects all rendered expertly in hard metal.

In this way, she not only makes wonderful and sought-after artistic objects, but also salient social commentary.

About the Distinguished Artist Series

Four times a year, the James Renwick Alliance brings notable American craft artists from around the country for the Distinguished Artist Series. Each DAS weekend includes a Saturday workshop and free Sunday public lecture at which the artist will discuss his/her technique, background, artistic influences, and career.
