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!

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
