Thank you to everyone who voted and helped to spread the word about the 15 fascinating projects listed on crafthaus for the past 15 days. I heard that the call for voting went out to many countries and responses came in from as far as the Philippines! A record total of 6943 votes were cast and the results for the 2012 Crafthaus Project Grant are in: 

 

Congratulations to the organizers of Project #3: "Assistance to Southeastern Turkish Womenʼs Handcraft C...": Umut Demirguc Thurman and James Thurman!

 

Umut and James will start blogging the project's progress on crafthaus within the next few weeks enabling all of us to follow along as they embark to help this particular womens' cooperative create new designs for their traditional handcrafted items and find new markets to sell their work.

 

The Thurmans are currently also chronicling their efforts into a book that will be on the market at some point. They are actively looking for additional support from US organizations interested to team up with them and will be accepting monetary donations via crafthaus and their own website soon. Stay tuned.

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Behind the Brooch

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. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…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.
