About

Contemporary American metalsmith Sylvie Lissa Alusitz's Paper Vessels (Vessels for Holding) were created using a variety of papers handmade by the artist, including abaca, kenaf, and loktah. Some vessels include copper, steel, or carborundum embedded in the paper. Individual stands were created specifically for each vessel by forming and brazing steel wire with brass connections. The vessels nest within the stands, a place for them to call home. As humans, it is in our nature to value tangible and intangible things. We attach significance and meaning to people and places, events and objects. These vessels, elevated, are spaces to hold our most sacred relationships. Left open, they are meant to be entered by different people and vary in their contents, changing through time as we do. All works are accompanied with a “Certificate of Authenticity” from Sylvie Lissa Alusitz and/or signed by the artist. They are being offered as a collection of 21 pieces for $5,650.00, but can be purchased separately.

The home serves to protect our daydreams, compilations of memory and imagination. Influenced by the basketry and textile communities, she translates those processes into metal to create objects that become physical representations of things untouchable. They have the ability to transcend time, mark birth, death and regrowth. Sylvie received her masters in Fine Arts from State University of New York at New Paltz in metal in 2019 and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2015. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, having been selected for and participating in Autor Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucharest, Romania and 7 artists for 7 days at Myday-Byday Gallery in Rome. She has been included in exhibitions at the Greater Denton Arts Council, Denton, TX, the Worcester Center for Crafts, Worcester, MA, the inaugural year of New York City Jewelry Week, and selected as a Kickstarter at JCK Las Vegas. Sylvie has also received funding from the Tiffany and Co. Foundation and the Women’s Jewelry Association. She is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Canada.
