Years ago Mark Poulin took some metal classes at a local Recreation center. He learned how to make a wax carving from a drawing and how to cast it in to sterling silver. It still a process that fuels his creativity.
"The only thing I love more than metal work is drawing and this collection allows me to keep doing both. My biggest challenge is editing my drawings down to their simplest essence so they will still pack in the personality while being worn as jewelry. If you love animals like I do you are in the right place.
When I think a piece is finished, I let is sit for a couple of days without peeking at it, then I give it another look to see if I can take it further. But most times, I edit it down to simplify the piece...Less is more."
