John Mehan, Ragged Point’s "Brother John," is a self-taught artist who has worked in the fine art of metallurgy since 1960. Brother John’s beautiful and unique multi-metal sculptures and fine jewelry capture the spirituality, magnificence, and joy of the Big Sur Coast in a way that few others can even imagine.
Brother John’s knowledge of gold, silver, bronze and copper, and his relationship with the Pacific, express themselves as forged, hand-shaped, and meticulously crafted ships, lighthouses, and other items that reflect the sun, wind, fog, and power of the sea. His beautiful hand-crafted earrings and other jewelry, shine and dance with motion.
