We began collaborating in 1988 shortly after graduating from prominent the Temple University, Tyler School of Art Jewelry & Metals Program. For 33 years we have created limited production studio multiples under the auspices of CHICKENSCRATCH, basically since we were kids.
Ten years into our venture, we craved a greater technical and creative challenge and began making One-Of-A-Kind pieces under “L & S Cylinder”, in addition to our studio multiples. This jewelry and objects are more substantial and more serious, both in concept and execution and have been exhibited internationally.
We are inspired by a blend of observations; Of nature, fables and myths, vintage cartoons, Craft history and Fine Art. It is an amalgam of two peoples different points of view, histories and experiences, both individual and shared.
Our Studio in Fort Andross, in Brunswick, is called “the Wedge”, due to it’s unusual shape. There, all of our work is hand crafted by the two of us. The Wedge also functions as a teaching space where beginner classes and advanced workshops take place.
