Ahhhhh...the shexy, smooth allure of the GROG!!!!  I'm still working on my stash from Christmas...love love it!  There is also a vegan cookie recipe I want to try it in...nom nom nom!

 

No worries, you can order how ever many multiples of a billion you would like!
Owwhhh let me know how that vegan recipe turns out, Bronwen is coming up in Sept....:)

Hi everyone -

I just wanted to post a quick note on here regarding the catalog and the second exhibition. 

First, the catalog.  We had an initial copy of the catalog printed and it had errors in it - both printing errors and typographical errors.  We had to ask the designer to make some revisions to hopefully correct these errors.  We are now waiting to receive another proof copy of the catalog.  Until we receive the proof copy, we cannot be sure that the errors have been corrected.  Please, do not try to order the catalog yet.  I promise (cross my heart) that as soon as it is available, you will all know about it. 

Second, we've been getting some queries about the second online exhibition.  I finished all work on it over the weekend.  It will be the official featured exhibition beginning on July 17th. 

Thanks for your incredible patience through all of this.  Also, keep your eyes peeled...we're going to post some things here from the conference surrounding the catalog for those who can't attend.  :-)  Finally, regarding the conference, be sure to join Julia Rai's Metal Clay World Conference group here on Crafthaus - she is going to be blogging from there for those who can't attend.

NEW DIRETION FOR THE EXHIBITION!!!!

Edit

Your work will be seen in Japan at the PMC Guild of Japan Annual Conference!  See the note below! -- Susan and Christine
Hattie Sanderson and I (Barbara Simon) have been invited to give presentations at the PMC Guild Of Japan Annual Conference in Kyoto, September 23-25.  The conference goers are very eager to see what the American metalclay artists have been doing both in pictures and in actual examples.  What better way to show the latest work than the beautifully curated Powdered Metallurgy Exhibit.  I am hoping that the images will be able to be displayed on a loop, visible to all, on an ongoing basis.  Thanks so much to Susan and Christine for getting the images to us to take to Japan.

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.
