A Review of “North By Northwest: The Jewelry of Laurie Hall”
Keith Lewis was born in the wilds of Pennsylvania, but now lives in the wilds of Eastern Washington, where he teaches jewelry at Central Washington University. In Fall 2023, arnoldshe Art Publishers will be issuing a monograph on his work. His favorite tool is a Craftsman brand machinist’s reamer that belonged to his father. As an object it is completely beautiful: tapered, fluted, sharp and poised. It is also singularly specific in its usefulness. It makes holes bigger and is good for nothing else.
