My birthday is this week, and I’ve decided I don’t want to work so hard. So today, I’m bringing you three archived Math at Work Monday interviews–two artists and a museum curator. Enjoy!
Shana has been designing museum-quality jewelry for almost 20 years. She also began the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) jewelry department, when she was fresh out of college. Using a combination of resin molds, metals and gemstones, her pieces are distinctive and tell interesting stories.
Ursula isn’t a glass blower, like Elizabeth Perkins. Instead she works in kilnformed glass, creating layered pieces that truly unique. She uses various formulas to create her pieces, allowing different kinds of glass to fire at different temperatures and for different lengths of time.
Ann is the associate curator of the prints, drawings and photographs department at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Part of her job is acquisitions, so she helps manage a budget — making sure that the museum has a balanced collection and spends its donations wisely.
Enjoy the interviews. See you on Wednesday!
