We have a Life's a Bench! exhibition during Schmuck at Renate Scholz Artelier in Munich and a four of us have been selected for Talente. You can also see work from another four of us at FLUX in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery until the end of February, where you can also see the group's contribution to Taking Time:Craft and the Slow Revolution.

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!
