Luce Artist Biography

Chris Irick has degrees in jewelry and metalsmithing from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth and Texas Tech University, and now teaches metal arts at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, New York. She makes jewelry and other objects that offer a glimpse into a dark, dreamlike world. Her work is designed for solitary contemplation and some of it is enriched by sound effects, such as dripping water or a ticking watch.
