Made in Florida

“Experimentation is the true force behind our designing.”

As an art student at University of Kansas in the 1970’s, John Whitney would sketch his future wife Linda’s orchestra rehearsals and quartet workshops. Gathering inspiration from the alluring sounds and sleek structure of the instruments, John turned the drawings into sculpted figures using traditional metalsmith techniques. Today, John and Linda design their one-of-a-kind creations together in Sarasota, Florida. With the help of their studio assistant, and their perky Havenese “art dogs,” they invent, forge, and stretch the possibilities of their beloved craft.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Mother and Child Necklace:

        My original version of this necklace was stolen in 2006. When I saw this product in Uncommon Goods catalog, I was ambivalent about a purchase because my original had been handmade and was purchased from the artist at an open market. Once I got this the new version I must admit it looks and feels more sturdy than my original, and has a brass like tone that I like with my everyday clothing now that I am retired. I am so happy to have this replacement.
