Austin Daigle is an emerging metalsmith. born in Calgary, Alberta, and has been living in New Brunswick for over two decades.
In 2017 he graduated from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design (NBCCD) with honours in Jewellery and Metal Arts
Conceptual work and statement pieces have always been his focus. He has always found commercial jewelry to be on the mundane side, and sought to create works that have a presence both in their own right and on the wearer. His recent interest has been in imagery in metal, the different ways illustration can be incorporated into three dimensional objects, and the types of imagery that invoke certain feelings and aesthetic out of necessity and function.
He seeks opportunities to improve on his body of work, skills, and experiences as an artist.
