Hannah Hoffman, a metalsmith, jewelry and designer and artist, lives and works out of her studio in Columbus, Ohio. She studied glass art at the Ohio State University and discovered metalsmithing shortly after finishing her degree. She quickly fell in love with the flexibility of metal, a forgiving material that allows her to make variation and unpredictability an integral part of her process. Her metal work demonstrates a balance between the industrial and the unrefined. Each piece is completely handmade – with quality materials like copper, brass, sterling silver and gold – and begins with sheet metal or wire.
