Hanne Behrend's bio

Marshall Dalva is a jeweler and metalsmith who has worked as a production jeweler for an Oakland-based designer. Within a short time, he was managing production and the everyday workings of the designer's studio, which has grown into an internationally recognized brand. Marshall's personal work follows a different model; he has a deep love for the flexibility of metal, focusing on metal forming and larger-scale fabrication. With simply a hammer, some patience, and a little skill, the possibilities are endless. In recent years Marshall has returned to his private work, creating metal sculpture and jewelry in his studio using a range of techniques and materials. He has previously taught at The Crucible.
