Vida + Luz = Life + Light. Driftwood and hammered brass capturing celestial rhythms, ever changing light and reflections on water. Inspired by nature and the juxtaposition of natural and geometric forms. The subtle shadow play of suspended hand cut and hammered brass embraces nature at its best.
About the Artist, Jessica Salazar
My creative work with Vida + Luz is reflective of my childhood years, spent running amuck on the sandy banks of the Skagit delta, on Fir Island, WA. Most pieces begin with unique salvaged driftwood from our family farm property, buffed by the sand and shaped by the glacial Skagit River waters. Many include moon and celestial shapes symbolizing the lunar connection to tidal rhythms that form the river delta.
Vida + Luz was born from our jewelry brand, Otra Vez, as it had been a long time idea to scale up earrings and make jewelry for the home. All are handmade from start to finish using hand cut and hand textured raw brass. We are proud to equip and empower women artisans through flexible, work from home employment and business skills. Our studio is located on the outskirts of Seattle in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We currently have a team of 6 women artisans who bring Vida + Luz to life.
