Bunny Tobias was born in Brooklyn, New York and is a graduate of the New York School of Visual Arts. While developing her career as a multi-media artist, she lived in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and in San Francisco until moving to Santa Fe, NM, in 1972. Along with her husband, artist, Charles Greeley, she made her studio outside of Santa Fe on their mountain property in the Glorieta Pass. For the past forty years Bunny Tobias has continued to create cutting edge ceramic art, paintings, mixed-media collages and to design and fabricate jewelry using the same eclectic imagery. Recent work includes sculpture using recycled material and hand fabricated bronze jewelry. Bunny Tobias begins her process with a simple ball of clay. Not ordinary clay but bronze metal clay. Bronze metal particles are suspended in an organic binder resulting in a clay like material that can be sculpted, rolled, textured, fabricated, and sanded. Once the desired object is achieved it is then fired in a digital kiln and held at a temperature of 1575 F. The organic binder burns out and what is left is pure bronze jewelry. It is polished to look like gold but has the strength of bronze. She then embellishes each piece with the colors and sparkle of Swarovski Crystals and gem stones.
