The Metalsmith's Apprentice

My name is Jessie; I am the newest member of Hvnter Gvtherer and Laura's apprentice in metalsmithing. I'm very excited to be studying under one of my favorite artists and dearest friends, and I look forward to sharing my work through HVGV's various retail and social media outlets.

Over the past several weeks, I have mostly been working with Laura on building up stock, which has given me plenty of smithing practice. It has also given me time to think about how I want to contribute to the growth of this beautiful and deeply narrative brand. I love how Laura imprints history, mythology, ritual, and a passionate love for metal into each of her handmade pieces. It is my goal to bring that same sensibility to my creations - and though I still can't believe it, we are about to release my first design.

Introducing POROSOME, Hvnter Gvtherer's newest piece inspired by the POROS bowls. Pulling from my years of experience in fortune-telling and ritual practice, I designed this ring in collaboration with Laura for both casual and ritual use. The small cup can hold several drops of liquid and is intended to provide its wearer with insight and grounding by gazing into its depths, a practice often referred to as "scrying". It can also simply be a wicked piece of jewelry.

POROSOME is available for purchase in a very limited run of twelve rings finished in black powdercoat, but we will be making more very soon. This collaboration is also a prequel to another HVGV project that I can't wait to share with everyone - but for now, that vision will be kept secret until Laura and I can hammer it out, so to speak.

Should you have the opportunity to visit us at one of our shows or pop-ups, please stop by to say hi! I'd love to give you a quick palm reading and help you find that perfect Hvnter Gvtherer piece.
