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.
