Tamara Navama guest artist for VAST Jan. 8

January 8th Meeting & Presentation:
Tamara Navama


Tamara Navama is an interdisciplinary artist, making one-of-a-kind metalwork, designing production jewelry and creating handmade leather products. Her jewelry combines precious metals, exotic skins & imitations of exotic skins. She is bringing awareness to the complexities of how our culture relates to leather. She utilizes traditional handwork techniques alongside contemporary digital technologies. In her talk, she will share how she is using different techniques and technologies to represent her perception about exotic skins and craft. She will present her process and demonstrate basic resin casting.

Navama is orginally from Israel, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Metalwork from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. Following her move to the United States, she executed custom designs for a luxury leather goods store in Fort Worth. She is currently in the fifth semester of her master’s degree in the area of Metalsmithing and Jewelry at the University of North Texas.
