Featured artist Sarah Cavender

Sarah Cavender formed Sarah Cavender Metalworks after graduating from the University of Philadelphia in 1984 with a sculpture major. She started with brass screening, developing a technique of treating and folding the mesh to create beautiful flower and bug sculptures out of the unique material. Her small start has expanded into a full line of jewelry, metal mesh belts, and handbags. All of Sarah’s designs are created in her small shop in Oxford, Alabama by local crafts-people under her direct supervision.

Making jewelry from metal, the artisan is in her studio, torch in hand, creating her next piece.

Each piece is plated or oxidized and then finished using a process of hand painting with bronze powders in a base of lacquer, and then sealed. The delightful colors are individually mixed and custom tinted for each shop that carries the Sarah Cavender Metalworks line.

Sarah’s work is currently featured in the Frist’s gift shop. 

Please consider supporting the Frist Art Museum with a donation. Your gift is essential to our mission of serving the community through the arts and art access in particular. We truly appreciate your generosity.
