Nature, Inspiration, and the Creative Process (and teaching and learning)

Pam Stephens, art education professor, wrote an article about my partner Matagi’s work and his creative process for an art education magazine called School Arts.

Sorenson’s jewelry designs frequently communicate ideas derived from nature. The organic forms in his work call to mind objects which are at once familiar, but perhaps not entirely known. It is this sense of mystery that elevates Sorenson’s work as a well- tempered response to nature.

I took this picture of a pendant Matagi made for me while I was in Peru volunteering alternative medical services with Healer2Healer. I enjoy his jewelry, and this piece was a happy surprise.
