Luce Artist Quote

“I think very much about David and Lauren while I’m working, because they are my connection to what I love. Most pieces have to do with what we enjoy together, whether it is collecting seashells or working in the garden.” Roberta Williamson, Ornament, 1996


Luce Artist Biography

To design her jewelry, Roberta Williamson uses “low-tech” processes such as soldering and casting. Her pieces often combine humorous imagery with text and reflect family relationships and shared interests. Williamson and her husband David, who is also an artist, draw inspiration for their work from their daughter, Lauren, and from working in the garden.
