RARE EARTH SMITHS
"All passes. Art alone enduring stays to us; The bust outlasts the throne,-The Coin,Tiberius." Theophile Gautier
Rare Earth Smiths is a group of artists in East Central Arizona. We try to take common materials from the earth; then elevate these materials with talent, experience and devoted hands and minds to art that is rare in its quality and beauty. The artists enjoy close bonds to each other ranging from friendships to marriage. Some are retired and some have to work to make a living but all live to make art. They are selected for their excellence and solid moral work ethic that has made them sought after in their professional lives whatever the endeavor.
