Metal Museum Apprentices, Then and Now
Former apprentices from our metals shop will show recent work alongside work from their time at the Metal Museum. It’s a rare chance to
see direct connections between our metals shop and our galleries as we celebrate the history and influence of the apprenticeship program.

Jones' work embodies paradox. Using intricate Damascene inlay, she combines precious gold and silver with base metals, and fuses delicate decoration with tools for hard labor. Jones lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Photo: Precious, 2009-2010, 24K gold and fine silver Damascene inlay on found objects (carbon steel and ash), photo courtesy of the artist
