Luce Artist Biography

Zack Peabody uses industrial materials in his work to call attention to the beauty of everyday objects. His stainless steel and niobium brooches and bracelets look like the skeletons of buildings and bridges. Peabody likes to work in series, and each brooch he makes is one of a limited series of eight, with one more for his personal collection. He hopes that his jewelry will help his viewers recognize the austere beauty of scaffolding, cranes, and other mechanical structures.
