Sodderbug owner and metalsmith Janelle Robinson stumbled across her signature art of soldering as a result of her passion for running. An avid marathoner who has completed four to date, Robinson was experiencing her usual jitters before the Chicago marathon. When the friend she was staying with showed her how to solder, she felt a calm replace the unease, and spent the weekend crafting in her friend's studio instead of zipping anxiously among the city's attractions. Robinson's signature photo charms keep images of loved ones close to the heart, narrowing the space between parents and children or children and stacks of pizza boxes. Creating art gives her a chance to recharge and reflect on the fleeting youth of her two children and the press of the clock as she races toward marathon finish lines.
