New York-based artist and third-generation craftsperson Erin Considine was first exposed to the art of metalwork in 2001 at North Carolina's Penland School of Craft. Intrigued by the seemingly endless possibilities of the material, Considine went on to focus on Metals, Small Scale Sculpture and Sustainability at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. After re-locating to New York, she launched her sustainably-minded line in 2009, merging her skill as a metalsmith and a life-long passion for fiber.

By marrying two such diverse materials, Erin is able to continuously experiment with technique and form. Her natural-dye baths make use of ingredients like madder root, logwood, and onion skin. She tests new textile construction methods with every collection, incorporating weaving, crocheting, and the Japanese braiding style of Kumihimo into an ever-expanding roster of creation tools. Her metal forms are mined from the dregs of industrialism- whether it by repurposing dead-stock jewelry findings or sculpting models inspired by the antique metier. Her commitment to sustainability ensures that almost every step of the production process is completed by hand in New York, primarily by Erin herself.
