Christopher Gorman, a metalsmith and native Houstonian, draws his inspiration from current events, quantum physics, and observations on urban life. His jewelry and metal pieces could be described as exquisite, and, at times, delightfully medieval in appearance. The complex level of detail in his work also reflects his interest in “the interconnection of micro-level arrangements and how they organize into macro-level complexes.”
After earning a BA from Wheaton College and a Masters from University of St. Thomas, Christopher studied metalsmithing at Jay’s Creative Jewelry School in Aloha, OR, and is currently a student at the Glassell School of Art. His work may be found in numerous private collections and has been shown in several Glassell School of Art Student Exhibitions, as well as CraftTexas 2008 at HCCC. Christopher is a member of the Houston Metal Artists Guild and the Society of North American Goldsmiths.
