Jewelry Maker | Flight Feather Studio
Cecelia Burokas' work is inspired by the textures, colors and asymmetry of the natural world—tree bark, feathers, stones—and the desire to contrast them with the attempts at perfection of human-made materials.
With no training in art in the first 60 years of her life, Cecelia is now in the early stages of becoming a jewelry maker. Starting with beading about ten years ago, within a year or two she moved on to metal fabrication, glass bead making, and lapidary. The desire to start with raw materials grew from a childhood fascination with her father’s basement wood shop. There, Cecelia learned to love the tools, hardware and tactile experience of cutting, fitting, and finishing things. Now she loves making unexpected combinations like rough-around-the-edges metal with sparkling crystals, vintage chain with new glass, rough stones with shiny enamel. Cecelia has shown her jewelry at Gallery 141 (Lancaster PA), Lill Street Art Center, Galleries de Granville, and the Andersonville Art Walk.
