Lori Schanche

Originally from Ontario, Canada, Lori Schanche retired from the Municipality of Anchorage as a Landscape Architect and Non-Motorized Transportation Coordinator. Lori has been taking silver-smithing classes since 2015 and is a self-taught enamel artist since February 2018.

Lori finds something magical about taking flat, sharp, boring looking pieces of metal, forming them into shapes, then ad...ding enamel and then the best part - Fire! Lori uses a 1400-degree kiln, or open flame from a giant tank, and says it is quite a thrill to work with. And out of all this fun comes a beautiful, colorful object.

Lori tries to create pieces that represent nature and life. It's often kind of beat up, like a broken heart, and sometimes just gorgeous like a flower, often in raging color. Color in the landscape and the landscape in general is a big part of Lori's life and inspiration from nature is often in her pieces.

_Pride Button Bracelet (7.5") Fine Art by artist Lori Schanche - Description: Buttons as a decoration have always fascinated me - from simple to elaborate; from the red and black pearl button blankets created by Pacific NW coastal tribes; to the Pearly Kings and Queens of Victorian London who created intricate designs with pearl buttons on their clothing.

My enameled buttons woven together create a beautiful, simple design. The glass in the enamel is fragile, as is our current world situation. Wearing the range of pride colors is a unique way of sending support to others.

Every purchase of a Pride Button Bracelet will have 25% donated to The Trevor Project* which helps LGBTQ youth.

* The Trevor Project is an American nonprofit organization founded in 1998 focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth. Through a toll-free telephone number, it operates The Trevor Lifeline, a confidential service that offers trained counselors and valuable resources to young people nationwide who may not have anywhere else to turn to for help.
