About

Vida + Luz = Life + Light. Driftwood and hammered brass capturing celestial rhythms, ever changing light and reflections on water.  Inspired by nature and the juxtaposition of natural and geometric forms. The subtle shadow play of suspended hand cut and hammered brass embraces nature at its best.  

 

About the Artist, Jessica Salazar

Jessica SalazarYou can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl...

My creative work with Vida + Luz is reflective of my childhood years, spent in the Skagit delta, on Fir Island, WA. I begin most pieces with unique salvaged driftwood, buffed by the sand and shaped by the glacial Skagit River waters. Many pieces include moon and celestial shapes symbolizing the lunar connection to tidal rhythms that form the river delta. 

Vida + Luz is proud to equip and empower women artisans through flexible, work from home employment, business and language skills. Our studio is located on the outskirts of Seattle in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We currently have a team of 6 women artisans who bring Vida +Luz to life.

In Him was LIFE, and that life was the LIGHT of all mankind. – John 1:4
