Adam Smith

The mixed media art of Adam Smith makes me insanely jealous. He uses so many of my favorite materials-but in ways I cannot begin to comprehend. The tremendous amount of imagination behind his work always leaves me questioning and wanting more! I adore his one-of-a kind beeswax and metal brooches but also his line of affordable plastic pieces-I'm kicking myself for not buying his bangle last time I visited shopSCAD. His sculptures tend to incorporate mechanical workings which add to their strange and magical allure. Visit his website to experience much more. ShopSCAD carries quite a bit of his work-see here-and much more can be found in-store.
