We stumbled upon this new site…or rather, he stumbled on us.
SL Savarick was a recent emerging artist at Gwen Gibson’s Emerging Artist Gallery and will be teaching at Ravensdale (August 6-12) this summer. He works in his Los Angeles studio creating inro, minaudiere, art purses and jewelry. Be sure to take a look at his online gallery.
FYI, there’s not a lot of Ravensdale information posted online yet. They’ve got a discussion site to peruse if you’re so inclined but otherwise, don’t expect much publicity until February.
OK, I had to look it up. minÂ·auÂ·diÃ¨re
