Kim Rawdin

Silversmith and painter, Kim Rawdin grew up in New York and spent many hours at the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim and many of the other museums which are so much a part of life in New York. Rawdin studied painting and art education in college and states that he “did not notice jewelry” before taking a job as an art teacher on a Navajo reservation in Chinle, Arizona.  Rawdin began to approach his own work as a tangible experience of the landscape, much as Native Americans do in making their jewelry. Rawdin is also influenced by traditional Japanese haiku and scroll paintings, and often includes on the back of his bracelets a poem that serves as “an emotional metaphor for the landscape.”
