Thank you Barbara and Hattie! Have a safe trip!

Barbara and Hattie, thanks for this wonderful initiative!     

Comment by Christine Norton on September 16, 2011 at 8:45am

The thanks actually goes to Barbara for coming up with the proposal and creating a slideshow to take with her and Hattie.  All I did was burn a disk...and then mail it to the wrong address.  :-)

I did not saw it either ;o). Crafthaus sent an email with some news and this was there !!! Thanks to you and Susan for doing this for all of us and for the metal clay community !!!

Lorena - thanks for putting a note about the Japan exhibition on this thread.  Susan has posted it around but I'm not sure anyone is seeing it as y'all are awfully quiet about it!  :-)  We sent a CD with all of your images on it to Barbara Becker Simon to take with her to Japan.  Here is her message to us regarding how it will be used.  CONGRATULATIONS to YOU!! 

 

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.

"Most fabulous. All my work is narrative too. It is an urge that grew in me and has slowly permeated my entire practice. I now don't think I could work in any other way. Really looking forward to Chapter 2."

"Narrative can have a very wide definition.  I think my work is narrative in that I try to express some form of communication with my clay sculptures.  How can I get my work in the January show?Cheers, Tom www.tomsupensky.com"

"Superb collection! Can't wait for part 2.  All my work is "narrative" and I tend to like work by other makers which is also narrative. "

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!
