metal art, non-ferrous metals –
Wayne Sutton is a member of a new generation of Metalsmiths who are seeking new directions within the aesthetic of hollowware. Educationally he comes from a long line of prominent metalsmiths. During his undergraduate studies at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas he was introduced to the field by nationally respected artist Robly Glover. Wayne then went on to graduate studies under long time teacher and master craftsman Fred Fenster at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. It was here that Wayne learned about integrity, high standards and the application and process of crafting vessels, and his work matured and developed into what it is today.
