ARTISTS' STATEMENT

2Roses Jewelry
Corliss and John Rose
www.2rosesstudios.com

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.
