Biography

About

Professor Barello’s research focuses primarily on body adornment and the resulting construction of meaning through supplements to the body. She is also very interested in objects that speak to ideas of utility and function. Her notions of what is included within the field of jewelry and metalsmithing is a vast and inclusive definition framed by the above ideas. Metalsmithing attracted Professor Barello as a young artist because she felt there was room to explore these ideas without being limited by form, materials, scale or technique.
