Kristyn Cooper - Composition of Memory Andrew and Laura McCain Art Gallery
Cooper is currently employed by the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design as an instructor in the Jewellery/Metal Arts department. In addition to producing one-of-a-kind pieces in metal, she offers a line of limited edition jewellery through select fine-craft galleries.
Living in an era that is characterized by disposable objects has compelled me to create pieces that are more than ephemeral trinkets to be acquired and quickly forgotten. I want everything I create to someday reach the status of ‘heirloom’.
My goal is to combine materials that have a high level of permanence with quality craftsmanship and classic design to create lasting objects to be cherished and admired for generations to come.
