Precision of a poet; creativity of a scientist" -Vladimir Nabokov

Ellen Rockower is a Philadelphia based jewelry maker and artist. Her artist statement reads, "The balance of disciplined emotion in the science and mathematicsof art and beauty referenced by Nabokov are the mantra of my work. Iam an artist, a jeweler, a craftsman, a sculptor, and a multifacetedmetalworker. I make art as an expression of myself but in turn thisart has forced me to open my eyes to learn the details of the sciencebehind it. Metalwork has become an outlet to communicate my thoughtsand my feelings through my hands. I draw inspiration for my jewelry andmetal work through other forms of art and life. I have a strongaffinity for architecture and post-modern sculpture. I am also drawnto the simplicity of nature, its repetition and colors. I findsolitude and confidence in the process of "making", and it has taughtme to test my strength and look for compassion."
