Santa Fe Artist: Miles Standish

Milesphoto2A long-time resident of Santa Fe and a National Forrest Service employee, Standish draws his inspirations from observing the natural world: the shapes of clouds, the curve of a leaf, the spread of a bird’s wing, the texture and pattern of a sea shell. Growing up, Standish was encouraged in every artistic endeavor but didn’t begin silver-smithing until the age 20. “I sometimes feel as though the silver chose me; I did not choose it,” says Standish. As a jewelry artist and craftsman, Miles Standish says he finds meaning in formulating shape out of something shapeless and bringing together different elements to create a relationship of balance and wholeness. Presently working in gold, silver, and a variety of precious and semi-precious stones.
