Meet the Artist


  • About This Artist

    Ford and Forlano started collaborating on art work in 1984, while still in art school. Their 30 + year collaboration with polymer is recognized for its innovative use of color and pattern, and texture. Ford lives and works in Philadelphia, and Forlano in Santa Fe. Working everyday in their own studios grounds both artists in the meditative practice of making things by hand.

  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: We combine a man made modeling clay, with sterling silver and other materials. We now live in different cities and send work in progress back and forth between us until it is resolved.

    A: We like how polymer combines the color of paint, and the plasticity of glass.

    A: We both cherish the alone time in the studio, away from the noise and politics of contemporary life. The studio is a place to recharge and replenish.
