Matagi Sorensen Jewelry


Matagi Sorensen has been creating objects of art since he was a child. Although living primarily in the high desert of the Verde Valley in Arizona, his family spent time sporadically in the Phoenix area, and making arts provided a creative refuge as well as a way to contribute to the family’s income. With the realization that he wanted to pursue a career as a jewelry designer and craftsman, Matagi attended Northern Arizona University where he studied metalsmithing and jewelry. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2011.  Upon graduation, Matagi’s career has flourished with collectors and shows around the country. His contemporary style, which merges an urban sensibility with natural elements, reflects the two worlds he has moved through since his youth. Matagi is a member of the Yavapai Apache Nation and currently lives and works in Phoenix.

Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for July Art Walk when Jerome artist Steve Gray will be demonstrating his Graphing Pendulum. This floor to ceiling pendulum is Steve’s unique creation which incorporates multiple pendulum movements into one larger construction and then is equipped to graph the movements of the pendulums creating mesmerizing works of art. Steve describes his pendulum saying “When the pendulums are set into motion there is a curiosity of what is
going to come. Simple pendulums have a predictable path, but when you
add two or three together the paths become unpredictable and the device
seems to have a mind of its own. When the pen drops to the paper and the
first lines begin to form I find that I can have feelings of frustration
or excitement that can morph into entirely different emotions as the
pendulum’s swing slows down and a drawing appears.
My intention is to create a way to graph frequencies of two or more
pendulums oscillating in time and space to create a visual harmony.”

Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for a glass of wine and the opportunity to experience this unique pendulum.
