I received my degree from SUNY Brockport with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing/Jewelry under the direction of my instructor and mentor, Thomas Markusen. In 2007 I was accepted into the Roycrofters at Large Association. I have been inspired by nature’s form. In 2016 I won the “Master Craftsmen award” at the 100 American Craftsmen Show. Observing the flowers and trees around me has brought substance to my designs. The idea of taking a nonferrous metal and creating a delicate form stimulates me. Since I’ve started my business “Dunn Metal Designs” in 2000, I have exhibited in hundreds of shows all over the North-East coast.
