Komala Rohde Jewelry

Komala Rohde

Local jewelry artist Komala Rohde draws on her two decades of experience teaching energy work in Europe and Japan to create inspired contemporary jewelry in precious metal clays (alone or in combination with gems, crystal, pearls and leather), chain mail and off-loom bead weaving.

A certified metal clay artist and teacher, Komala creates organic shapes from precious metal clays - a mix of metals, binder and water that are shaped and fired in a kiln to burn the binder and sinter the metals. Komala’s precious metal clay jewelry incorporates fine silver, silver alloy, gold alloy, copper, bronze, rose bronze and steel. She frequently uses special patinas and techniques such as Mokume Gane (a Japanese term meaning wood grain) to add interesting colors and textures to her unique shapes.

Komala also creates chain mail jewelry from anodized niobium (a strong, lightweight, hypoallergenic metal). Niobium is a reactive metal that oxidizes when immersed in a soap bath charged with an electric current. Amazing colors result from anodized niobium when light refracts through the oxide layer.

Komala is also an expert off-loom bead weaver who creates thoroughly modern jewelry of pearls, beads and gemstones.

 Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for June Art Walk as we celebrate our fifth anniversary.
Zen Mountain Gallery has consistently represented the finest work from the best of local artists and today the gallery represents over thirty top artists from the region including the photography of gallery owner Christopher Mull.
 
The gallery represents a wide range of fine art, jewelry and pottery from Luna Patterson’s hand-built and pit-fired pottery with colors that echo the colors of the local red rocks to Komala Rohde’s unique jewelry designs. Erica Farieo’s whimsical and colorful ink and water color depictions of Jerome and the Grand Canyon reflect having grown up in the area and being a Colorado River guide in the Grand Canyon for 25 years. Donald Voss’ spiritually influenced works of ink on paper masterfully incorporate Eastern, Western and Native American influences. As well as Susan Moody’s spectacular kiln-formed glass art and much, much more. The underlying emphasis of the gallery is to represent the finest of local contemporary and contemplative artists.
 
Please join us for a glass of wine and food catered by Flatiron Café during Zen Mountain Gallery’s  anniversary celebration with a number of our artists in the gallery.
