“The Imagery I work with is inspired by my love for Lake George. I am obsessed with everything here: the water, the mountains, Dome Island. My other work is predominately inspired by my childhood, traveling throughout the United States. My father is a pilot. When in a plane, I always paid close attention to the patchwork landscape below. My work is an accumulation of visual reminders. They are memories of places and events that hold a special place in my heart, such as Lake George. Most can relate to that.”
Pfau has been creating these individual pieces along with other collections in her studio since September 2004. Pfau’s pieces emulate Lake George’s unique landscape and grace. Each piece is handmade, custom fit and made to order. These designs are arguably as beautiful as Lake George itself. Pfau also makes other custom lakes in the Adirondack Parks and other places around the world. Her map jewelry acts as a reminder and proof that ‘You are here’.
Pfau is a professionally trained jeweler and metalsmith with an undergraduate degree in Sculpture & Metals from Pratt Institute and a graduate degree from SUNY New Paltz, NY in Metals & Jewelry. When she is not working in her studio, she spends her free time swimming, ice climbing, shoveling snow, working in her garden. Pfau lives in Rosendale, NY and spends her summers on Lake George in Bolton Landing, NY.
Sara was born on the 20th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination.
