Venetia Dale is a metalsmith/sculptor whose work explores shifts in utility, mobility and exchange between people, place and things. From close inspection of a bathroom hand dryer in Boston, to discovering bootleg clothing tags at a market in Vietnam, observations in daily life and experiences abroad inform the questions Dale explores in her work. Reflecting on what is lost and re-invented as objects are produced, used and exchanged, Dale is currently research reflects on ways copius and socialized commodities are both receivers and observers of cultural memory and imagination.

She exhibits work, lectures, curates and performs workshops nationally and internationally.
