Overview and Voting Results 2012

 

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, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

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
