Autumn Leaves

Daily Palette Double Feature


LOUISE RAUH
Autumn Leaves, aluminum, paint, 3" x 6"

Louise Rauh was born and raised in Endicott, New York where her art teachers strongly encouraged her to pursue a career in dentistry.  Upon relocating to Iowa City she developed an interest in fine crafts.  She received her MFA from the University of Iowa in the Spring of 2000 and has participated in many fine craft shows throughout the US including the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington DC, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, and the American Craft Exposition in Evanston, Illinois.

The artist writes, "The etched pieces, bowls and teapots reflect change, and grace in cycles of growth and eventual decline.  They depict the fragility of life belied by the strength of the materials used.

The technical processes of my jewelry pieces are the result of a strong background in metal and printmaking, and the aesthetics belong to a love of paper and fiber arts.  This combines into sculptural pieces that can appear quite substantial but are light in weight and comfortable to wear...and always very pretty."
