Audra Schoblocher (Archaic Scrape)

Audra Schoblocher is a metal sculptor from Calgary, Alberta.  She attended the ACA+D’s Jewellery and Metalsmithing program both in the 1980s and returned in 2008 for a BFA. Her work revolves around historical research and movements of the human body.  Her work has exhibited nationally and privately collected internationally.
            I have followed the historical theory of adorning and protecting the human body from the elements, with materials that are collected from one’s own personal environment.  I combined my readily accessible materials with traditional craft-making techniques such as spinning, crocheting and smocking to construct wearable articles.
