KT Hancock is an emerging artist based out of Seattle, Washington. With a background in metalsmithing and glassblowing, she incorporates both mediums into her work. Hancock’s pieces demonstrate an interest in the idea of preciousness. The gem-shaped objects convey an idealized adornment piece for the body. Although not wearable, these objects reflect an inherent cultural, physical and sentimental value. With a Bachelor’s degree in metalsmithing and sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Hancock has continued her practice as a freelance designer and maker.
