Holly Roddenbery Profile

Research Interests:

Investigations of scale, detail, interactions and proximity to create intimacy with the viewer; employing color theory to generate and initiate atmospheric and sensory experiences; conceptual explorations and their relationships to philosophy, literature, and ritual practices.

Professional Experience:

Holly Roddenbery currently teaches 3-D Techniques at CCS. She received her MFA in Metal Design from East Carolina University in North Carolina and her BFA from Valdosta State University. While at East Carolina University she assisted in the facilitation and served as the co-chair of the annual Material Topics Symposium. The Symposium focuses on metal working processes and brings visiting artists and participants from around the country. Holly’s work combines and integrates body adornment made with traditional precious metal techniques and non-traditional materials such as paper. The breadth of her work also incorporates small-scale jewelry metalsmithing techniques in conjunction with wood to create larger scale sculptural pieces. Holly’s work has been exhibited nationally and is currently on exhibit in Fuller Craft Museum’s Human Impact exhibition until May 2020.
