Come join us for our gallery exhibition at the RiverSea Gallery in beautiful Astoria, Oregon. We will be present to answer questions about our work at the opening night reception on July 11 from 5pm to 8pm.
Trees & Tides is an exhibition by two sibling metalsmiths. Nile G. Fahmy and Michelle Fahmy collaborate on the design and creation of traditionally hammer raised vessels and forged metal objects. In Trees & Tides, Nile & Michelle will be exploring the geography of the borders between different landscapes. The forest meets the ocean, shadow plays with light, and the growth of new things is partnered with weathered shapes exposed to the elements. Through the use of copper & bronze, silver & gold, you will see metal emulating churning waters, ancient trees, and stolen glimpses of the natural world. The diversity of the form & movement presented in this metal collection throws into sharp relief the knowledge that every object is brought to life by the simple hammer blow.
