Ellamarie Woolley

ITALIANO. Ellamarie (Packard) Woolley (1913-1976) è stata un’artista e insegnante di San Diego, California, nota per la sua arte dello smalto su rame. Dopo la laurea presso la San Diego State University ha iniziato ad insegnare Arte alla Francis Parker School, dove ha incontrato il suo futuro marito, Jackson Woolley (1910-1992), che era l’insegnante di recitazione. Dopo il ritorno di Jackson dalla Seconda Guerra Mondiale, la coppia iniziò a cercare un modo per lavorare insieme al di fuori dell’insegnamento. Trovarono la risposta al loro desiderio dopo aver frequentato un seminario di smaltatura allo Scripps College nel 1947. Insieme, essi iniziarono a produrre oggetti funzionali come piatti, posacenere e scatolette. Durante gli anni Cinquanta, essi iniziarono a creare pannelli e murali su larga scala.

ENGLISH. Ellamarie (Packard) Woolley (1913-1976) was an artist and teacher from San Diego, California, known for her enameled copper art. After graduating from San Diego State University she began teaching Art at Francis Parker School where she met her husband-to-be, Jackson Woolley (1910-1992); who was the drama teacher. After Jackson returned home from serving during WWII, the couple began looking for a way to work together outside of teaching. They found their answer after attending an enameling workshop at Scripps College in 1947. Together they began producing functional objects such as plates, ashtrays and boxes. During the 50's they began creating large scale wall panels and murals. The following is a selection of Ellamarie's work.
