  • Ronald Hayes Pearson, Neckpiece, 1968, sterling silver, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the James Renwick Alliance, 1993.25

Execution Date

“The hammer is our primary tool. In skilled hands, it will shape malleable metal into simple or complex fluid forms. There seems to be no end to what one can achieve and it is the challenge to explore new terrain that makes this work so exciting.” Artist quoted in Advancing the Tradition: An Exhibition of Ten Artistic Viewpoints, Portland Museum of Art
