About The Artist
SULO BEE • San Antonio , TX
Jewelry • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
I am a Trans Non-Binary interdisciplinary metalsmith and maker. I earned my BFA from Texas State University in 2018 and MFA from SUNY New Paltz in 2022. Through iterative processes, reactive construction, automatic drawing, and colorful surface treatments, every element of my work is considered. I respond, and transform my wearables through experimental techniques in metalworking and material exploration. My jewelry acts as a space for balance and belonging for those who might need it.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
Through iterative processes, reactive construction, automatic drawing, and colorful surface treatments, I make unique one-of-a-kind wearables. The use of blind contour drawing adds another layer of visual language, pulling imagery from the action figures in my studio space or flowers blooming on my walk home. I build a database to inform my drawings, some occurring quickly on-site, direct interpretations of what is in front of me, and others from memory. These images inform the shapes of my pieces, parts, and connections. Each piece is hand-sawn or fabricated from steel or brass, then covered with my signature surface finish made from stickers, glitter, and paint.
