Anne Bujold combines metalsmithing and blacksmithing techniques with alternative materials such as felt, ribbon, and plastics. In her sculpture, animals are agents examining the spaces between definitions, that fertile ground where new forms emerge.
Bujold is currently the Artist-In-Residence for the Metals Department at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville, TN. She received her MFA from the Craft and Material Studies Department at Virginia Commonwealth University (2018) and BFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft (2008).
Previously based in Portland, Oregon, she operated Riveted Rabbit Studio, a custom metal fabrication business.
Bujold has taught at Virginia Commonwealth University (VA), Oregon College of Art and Craft (OR), The Multnomah Art Center (OR), The Donkey Mill Art Center (HI), The Appalachian Center for Craft (TN), and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.
Founded by a small group of professional women blacksmiths, the Society of Inclusive Blacksmiths intentionally supports equity, diversity and inclusion in the field of blacksmithing. We foster honest professional discussion and take actions to diversify the community.
We represent the face of blacksmithing in the 21st century, including different faces and forward thinking work.
To achieve our goals we will host events, workshops, seminars and projects of various scope with focused groups to wide-ranging demographics.
Together we will thrive.
