Jessica Dietz creates unique and intriguing copper art by bringing out the vibrant beauty of the metal and adding her own artistic twist to each piece.
Jessica became an artist and lover of nature at a young age, and her ongoing exploration of
the natural world continues to feed her inspiration for her art. She grew up under the tutelage of artistic
family members - musicians, painters, glass artists, poets - who cultivated creative thinking and exploration, and who fed her growing talent and creative mind.
Jessica learned the art of handcrafted copper weather vanes by apprenticing in New England in the
mid-1990's and her passion for researching, sketching and building each piece of her own sculptural copper art has remained constant. Passionate about this radiant copper metal, she takes joy in the process of hand cutting, forming and detailing to bring out its natural characteristics of warmth and light.
She recently studied under Charles Lewton-Brain at the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary, AB and brought the Foldforming technique to her work. After 15 years of copper and weathervane artistry, her signature fantasy-themed art continues to capture the attention of collectors nationwide.
She designs and creates vanes for homes and businesses throughout the U.S. and sells her fine art through local and regional art galleries. Jessica stays current on innovation and collaboration within the metal sculpting community and teaches copper-work classes locally.
Jessica lives and works in a small creative community in the foothills of Northwestern Washington's
“American Alps” with her husband and two children.
