Join us at the Cryptic Jewelry studio for a day of sculpture fun! In celebration of International Sculpture Day, we are hosting a very special event complete with an art show, a live lost-wax casting demonstration and even a map of notable sculpture sites in Richmond to take home with you!
International Sculpture Day is intended to raise awareness, appreciation and enjoyment of sculpture in communities across the globe. Here in Richmond, we have many sculptures in the form of monuments -- monuments have been an important part of our built environment for ages. In the modern era, we are seeing less monuments and more public sculpture. If monuments are commemorative of specific people or events in history, what does public sculpture evoke in our cultural landscape? How are they to be experienced?
As a practicing jewelry studio utilizing lost wax casting, we see each piece as tiny sculptural work of art. Jewelry is both personal and public as it communicates our interests and values. Our extensive collection of gemstones and handmade jewelry will also be on view.
