I'm excited to start my NCECA/crafthaus blog: Emerging Artist Report. This year NCECA is in Seattle! I will head there in one week from today- my first stop is Portland, OR to visit my friend and potter, Dara Hartman. We will explore Portland and visit a few key art related institutions including Oregon College of Art and Craft and possibly ADX. Then up to Seattle, our first stop is Herban Feast SODO for the Art of the North West Table Exhibition. Tickets are still available!

At NCECA, I will be meeting with the six Emerging Artists to interview them for the blog report. I will begin posting the reports in April! If you are going to NCECA you can attend the Emerging Artist presentations in person Saturday March 31at 9–9:45 am in Ballroom 6A–C. View the 2012 NCECA program here.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
