Tasha Matthews – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Tasha Matthews

Natasha Matthews (Tasha Grace Designs) is a jewellery artist whose work is evocative of an enchanted forest, with pieces often having a whimsical, ethereal feel reminiscent of the Unseen World. She excels at wire weaving which is an unusual technique that produces beautiful, delicate and complex patterns with very thin wire, and lends itself well to the Art Nouveau forms she often incorporates into her work. While studying Graphic Design at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University, she discovered silversmithing at this world-class institution. By the end of her first class, she was hooked forever, and considered herself to be a silversmith at heart from that day forward. It was to be her niche, her passion, and her destiny.
