About the Artist
     Krystal Ramirez is currently in her last semester at CSULB. Before attending CSULB, she went to Orange Coast College. Her fascination with metal work began in high school. Ramirez attended an art high school and took a jewelry class during her senior year. She loved metal work right away and that’s what started it all.

     Ramirez’s exhibition Dinner Is Served features many hand made tools or utensils that you would expect to find at a dinner table, and some that you wouldn’t. All of the pieces that Ramirez created for this exhibition not only serve as dinner utensils but represent relationships she has formed around the dinner table. The pieces in her exhibit include dinnerware items, such as a beautiful set of dinner silverware made from brass which Ramirez formed to look kind of like origami, salt and pepper shakers, and a pitcher and cup. The pieces also include jewelry items, such as a broach made from copper. Inside the copper is a wasp nest, into which three cubic zirconia were nestled. This piece was a recreation of s broach similar to Ramirez’s grandmother.
     I really liked Ramirez’s exhibit. Not only were all over her pieces stunning, I loved that they reflected the relationships that she has formed at the dinner table, because the dinner table is where people come together and grow closer.
