Sarah Perkins in New Mexico is considered one of the best enamelists in the United States. She continues to amaze viewers with her superb forms, brilliant colors and stylistic surprises which include stitched seams, gemstones and unusual textures. With great technical skills, Perkins raises the silver or copper forms which then serve as a canvas (inside and out) for the extraordinary painterly surfaces she creates.
Perkins’ vessels and containers are intimate treasures that are decorative, expressive works which are both beautiful and emotive. Nature and culture often inform her designs. Recently named the 2019 Master Metalsmith, Perkins was honored with an exhibition of her work at the Metal Museum in Memphis Tennessee, October 2019 thru March 2020.
