Richard Elaver is a designer and metalsmith working in the overlapping spheres of art, design, and technology. In his work, Elaver integrates the tools of industrial design with the craft of metalsmithing. He develops computer simulations of biological phenomena, and uses them to create design objects. Elaver received his Bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and his MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. In 2006, he completed a Fulbright Fellowship in the Netherlands where he worked with Droog Design. Following several years of professional experience both as a jeweler and industrial designer, he is now an Assistant Professor of Industrial Design at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.

Allison Tierney (b. 1987, Charleston SC) is a visual artist living and
working in Chapel Hill, NC. She received her BFA from Winthrop University and
her MFA from UNC Chapel Hill where she won the Top Prize for Outstanding
MFA Work. She is one of six founding members of Subverbal Art Collective and
has exhibited work throughout the southeast. Her work can be viewed as two
distinct but closely related bodies. One body relying heavily on painting and the
history of abstraction to respond to found objects while the other employs the
techniques of various crafts as a means to discover personal identity, to
comment on consumerism, and to investigate the divide between craft and art.
