Tova Lund is a jewelry artist whose curiosity about our relationship to the environment manifests itself in her mixed-media jewelry. Tova earned her MFA at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and her BFA at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where she has also recently taught metalsmithing. She is currently teaching at College of the Redwoods, Arcata, California. Tova is a Minneapolis resident, and currently a full time artist. She was recently featured in American Craft Magazine, and has also had work included in Art Jewelry Magazine and American Craft magazine.
It is a natural impulse to collect new things when visiting and exploring unique places. Driftwood, shells, bones, and the like, all contribute to the collection table. These remarkable objects can become both remembrances of a personal place and a one-time experience. Tova’s demonstration workshop will celebrate the natural found object, its sentimentality, and its potential for capturing narrative. She will discuss different ways to manipulate these found objects, along with ways to connect and integrate them into a personal, fabricated metal piece, giving them a unique and permanent place to live.
