Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Zaida Lanning and I was born in Sacramento, California. I am Peruvian-American. My parents met in Peru during an archeological assignment. I came to Peru when I was a year old. As a child, my brother and I would accompany my mother on her field assignments. I was influenced a very extraordinary woman: my godmother. Along with her sister, she propelled, supported and spread Peruvian art. I've always worked with my hands: knitting, pottery, recycling materials and refurbishing other items as they break down. This is how I discovered silver, which fascinates me for its plasticity despite being a hard metal. I work with silver as a base material and combine it with other materials that give color to the final pieces. A lot of things inspire me - nature, the everyday and even dreams. My future plans include developing my creative capacity by using diverse materials with silver and making the venture grow to manage this labor.'
