James and Umut are partners, both in their marriage as well as their collaborative studio work.  James has a background in sculpture and metalsmithing that have led to the creation of Thurmanite®, a layered paper-resin composite material he uses in much of his work.  Umut has a background in textile design, metalsmithing, and enameling which all manifest themselves in her studio work and design.  Collaboratively, they create a wide variety of work, from wearables to home furnishings.  Their newest body of work unites the Thurmanite® with enameled components into new and exciting combinations.
