Participants were asked to send one image of a piece of chain between 10 and 20 cm long. The online exhibit is the result of the images selected and linked in a long and unique chain shown on real size.These works are visually connected by a round jump link.

Exhibition: CHAIN

... A long chain that could cross the Oceans ... this idea was the starting point of Chain Project. Now, launching the exhibition online I realize, by different approach, that the initial concept of this work has been reached.

I’m very thankful to all participants that were moved by this idea, especially Brigitte Martin who promptly accepted to exhibit it on crafthaus website.
I received submissions from 130 participants, all of them of very high quality Works that made the curatorial experience very difficult and joyful at the same time.

I’m very pleased to announce that this exhibition will be presented physically from 20 Februrary to 22 March 2013 at A CASA Museum of Brazilian Object – in São Paulo, Brazil.

Now, take your time, and enjoy the show... the further information about artists and pieces are listed on a separate page following the exhibition.

Wooohooo! What a great collection/project. What fun and aren't we a diverse and wonderful group (I know, I know, I didn't send and image, but this is one wonderful group altogether, isn't it!). Hooray for crafthaus.

Very cool! Congratulations to you on this project and to all the talented artists who connected! There are some really neat things going on in the sections. Like Brigitte, wish I could visit the exhibit in person. Projeto CASA is a great place to show the work! Much success to it!

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

Takahiro Iwasaki - Miniature Scenes made of Fibers, Dust & Hair

The only place for cloth fibers, human hair and dust in my home is the vacuum cleaner, but that's not the case for Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki, who loves to use them to create detailed miniature scenes that depict Japan's industrial…See More

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!
