About the Artist

Rosemary Pham (Seattle) received a 2005 GAP to help pay the tuition costs for attending a two-week workshop at Alchimia in Florence, Italy. The workshop, with world-renowned goldsmith Manfred Bischoff, will allow Pham, a jewelry artist, to further make the transition from working with sterling silver to working in the realm of precious metals – primarily gold. Pham combines non-traditional materials in her work – fabric, embroidery thread, and everyday objects – with gold in order to explore the perceived and actual value of the object. Allowing her to focus on advancing her goldsmithing techniques, GAP funds will allow Pham further understanding of the medium and material.
