You have done both jewelry and wall sculptures on this exhibit. Is this the 1st time you combine both forms? Why did you decide to do this? Kim Overstreet & Robin Kranitzky: In the past we have created Pandora Animals Charms larger freestanding structures to accompany the brooches. The greater sculptural format provides us an opportunity to figure without regard to size or weight, that is ordinarily a consideration when designing an item of jewelry. In those cases, the structures have become much part of the composition but additionally possess a function to house and Pandora Murano Glass Beads display the brooch. The wall sculptures in this Vault project don’t have that function. It was important to add in the brooches in this particular exhibit simply because were the motivation to the larger wall pieces. While working on these three inkblot inspired brooches, we did start to think, ‘wouldn't it be interesting to have others to get the Pandora CZ Beads ideas for us?’ When we have always welcomed others to find their own insight to the narratives, it gave the look of a good idea to reverse our normal process. We had arrived thrilled to get over 100 replies to our inkblot request. The question that always appears to any artist is ‘where would you get those ideas?’ Now the answer is simple: from those who thought i would reply to an inkblot. Incidentally, here is the new we've got shown brooches and separate sculpture simultaneously inside a formal setting. Robin Kranitzky and Kim Overstreet What inspires the stories you employ inside your work? Do you make them up? Kim Overstreet & Robin Kranitzky: Sometimes just one found object becomes the inspiration or perhaps the story may be inspired by something happening from the news, a spiritual ritual, emotions, dreams, political issues or whatever is happening within our own individual lives. Through commission work our stories happen to be based on poems, books or possibly a person’s character. In group exhibitions where there's a particular title or theme, then that title or theme would be the starting place for conjuring up our narratives. For this Vault project the stories got their start in peoples’ reaction to a selected inkblot. When you are so interested in story telling could you recommend some books or authors whom you are especially fond of? Robin: Codex Serifinianus, one among my favorite in history. Joseph Campbell, highly recommend. Shakti Gawain, highly recommend. Kim: I love to read and still have a directory of books miles long i always need to get to but because it happens I read whatever comes my way. An excellent story that kept me in another place and time through the entire entire book was Pillars of the planet by Ken Follett. A little bit ago I became looking something to see and came upon A couple of years Prior to a Mast by R H Dana Jr. I am aware it’s a well used but I needed never make out the print and honestly it always sounded boring in my opinion, but oh boy, that story kept me spellbound throughout! I enjoy mysteries and keep a set of Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle on my iPod, that we enjoy. There are 2 storytelling podcasts I never miss, Selected Shorts and The Moth.
