Artwork Statement: Erika’s Puzzle-Pot is a collection of memories reiterated in silver to form a heartfelt, sculptural teapot. Dedicated to my mother, this piece features the puzzle pieces she made during her time in the NSCAD jewellery department, a cuttlefish casting of the key from my first house and driftwood found on one of the many hikes we went on together. Growing up my mother always acted as a primary source of inspiration, constantly pushing and supporting me as I continued on a creative path. As a piece, this teapot embodies our familial bond as well as the comradery and closeness we experienced through numerous creative discussions and many years of working side by side in our respective fields.

Artist Statement: Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Hannah Proctor is a recent graduate of the NSCAD UniversityJewellery Design and Metalsmithing program. Having always been intrigued and influenced by the arts, she went into the advanced IB art program at Charles P Allen High School from 2015 to 2017, leading to her first self-curated exhibition. Immediately after high school, she continued to NSCAD, initially taking a split sculpture and intermediate degree which still influences her work to this day. Most recently, her work has been featured in the 2022 NSCAD Graduation Exhibition Anthology: a collection in bloom, NSCAD’s senior studio exhibition Assemblage in 2021, as well as the Ethical Metalsmith show So Fresh + So Clean. Coupled with her sculptural interests, Hannah is inspired and influenced by the natural world and the intricacies within it. This fascination works in tandem with cold materiality, inspired greatly by machinery of past and present. She creates sculptural work that walks the line between mechanical and natural.
