Artist at work...

Gold and Platinumsmith
Engraver, Stone Setter, Blacksmith
Specialties in Mokume Gane and Damascus

Having studied jewelry as an art form at the University of Washington and training as a blacksmith with a specialty in making Damascus steel, Celeste brings a broad range of artistic experience to Green Lake. With a background rooted in both engineering and fine art, she says, “Metal is metal. The only difference is the scale.”

Art, engineering, and manufacturing are all one in the same for Celeste. The steps are identical: Investigation, education, planning, and process—these are the means to an end. So it should follow that Celeste’s background and education are rooted in both engineering and fine art.

From constantly drawing throughout her childhood, to being captivated by jewelry making in high school, to rebuilding and furnishing a home with art and metalwork, making things has occupied Celeste’s whole life.
