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.

Scrounge

Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found!  In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools.  Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well.
