Open House Projects started in 2014 with some sketches and a love for the lost wax casting method, first learned in a small scale sculpture class at the University of Hawaii. It is piloted by Monika Wyndham from California & New York.
Open House designs usually start as drawings, and are carved in wax somewhere between the Catskills and California. New work is often made at odd hours in hotels, on picnic benches and in cars. I am excited by moving parts, and pieces that click, rattle, or fit together in satisfying ways. I like elements with utility like handmade clasps and closures. I aim to make design objects with integrity that feel good to wear and are nice to interact with. With respect for the inimitable nature of something that is made by hand, I am glad to work closely with family-owned businesses and skilled jewelers in New York City to take each design from concept to completion. Our pieces are cast in certified recycled metals using the lost wax method.
