Bryan Hansen '18

Metalsmithing & Jewelry Studio Tech

Dept. : BFA, Metalsmithing & Jewelry

Bryan Hansen grew up in the midwest and graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing & Jewelry from Maine College of Art & Design in 2018. In reference to his childhood mindset, he fabricates, casts, and forges objects of vague whimsy that appear artifactual in nature. Hansen’s interests lie in tools, relics of supposed unimaginable significance, the augmentation of the body through said objects, and a precursory state of perception that makes up any and all of the connections we experience in our individual constructions of reality. Stripped of these heady concepts he also appreciates and pursues the beauty in simple objects and curated forms and the almost supernatural allure withdrawn forms are capable of producing.
