Amber D. Harrison: Playground Valentine

Swingset goa 2015

Playground Valentine, a series of small-scale sculptures and wearable objects by Amber D. Harrison (BFA 2012), is on display at the University Hospital’s Gifts of Art Gallery through Apr. 92015.

Harrison, a Michigan based studio artist practicing contemporary art jewelry and object making, works as a fabricator hand cutting and forming each piece while exploring the implementation of play. Playground Valentine merges Harrison’s love for small-scale sculpture and the wearable with the sentiment of valentines. Works such as On Top of the World, Bench & Balloon Brooch, and Under the Old Maple are meant to capture moments of time through their metal bodies.
