Corliss and John Rose
2-Roses Studio, located in Southern California, is a life long artistic exploration
and collaboration between metal smith Corliss Rose, and lapidary John Lemieux Rose.
Each is a master craftsman with a distinctive style and artistic vision all their
own. Corliss' recent works explore themes of evolution, emergence and movement
using precious metal, gems and mixed media. John's work is a conscious effort to
expand the limits of jewelry and lapidary art through the combination of unorthodox
materials and experimental optical techniques. Together the 2-Roses have forged
a unique creative synergy that explores the boundaries between adornment, precious
object, fantasy, iconoclasm, perception and reality.
