Jack da Silva uses inspiration from every discipline in his amazing metal constructions. From jewelry  to sculpture, to functional bowls, vessels and flatware, Jack’s work continues to evolve and exude beauty of shape and form.

Statement

Since the first time I noticed metal, it has been mysterious and fascinating to me. Not only was it useful as a material for tools, vehicles and architecture, but it is wonderful to use in jewelry and decorative objects as well. The quest began. I learned about math, music and the visual arts; how they can be used in concert together or individually. While studying metal arts I focused on research of ancient and traditional metalworking techniques. Eventually, many various techniques became evident from around the world. These became incorporated into how I think, create my own work and how I teach.

Statement: Tangents

Individual events may create ripples that extend outward, each crisscrossing as one path overlays another. I have become fascinated with how these energies can become amplified when occurring in unison. Tangents explores these possibilities by suspending the moment in time as these energies come together. From one path to the next, the form arises through the malleability of metal as worked by hand to capture the energy as they evolve and unify. These coexist and expand as a synergy of the artists’ vision, the material’s resilience, the handling of the tools and techniques as they come together.
