Here are the first few images of a new set of belt buckles. Bronze castings for 1.5 inch belt straps.
Lori Lacy and Antje Roitzsch are demonstrating their techniques during the Artisan Tour.
We will be in the studio again tomorrow- bring your curiosity and questions.
Come on out and visit the Artisan Tour this weekend. Here is the Map of all the open studios. It’s a lot of fun to see what our creative people are up to and what technique they are using. Take your time and watch demonstrations ask questions and share their enthusiasm. We, Antje Roitzsch and Lori Lacy are showing at the Maine Beehive and we are “L” on the map.
I had a great time trying out a few different variations on a theme. The end result…. I like them all. They are great to put on and wear. I have gotten so many compliments. They really get noticed. The next step is to make one in gold. Which one should I start with?
This is part of a jewelry collection I created in the early 1990 in the technique of anticlastic raising. I discovered that I can create the same shapes with foldforming and have resurrected the collection. Since one actually forges the shapes with forldforming, a very interesting hammer pattern covers the surface.
All pieces are available in sterling silver or 18kt gold (if not posted ask for the current gold price) Some of the earrings are available in copper with silver wire. All pieces can be purchased directly online through : www.visualartsmaine.com

The Healing Power of Art
Creating Art can be healing. Observing, interacting with Art can be healing as well. Antje Roitzsch’s sculptures are created to be touched, and this way appreciated and understood on many different levels.
Her intuitive drawings are a way to tap into the creative process. They also are a tool to express feelings and process the state of the hear and now.
Antje also walks through nature with her camera as part of her meditative practice.

Here is a video about me and my work, connecting my artistic- and body-work through the heart. This was made by Bill Anderson: http://www.camdenpost.com/phenomenaltouch.html
