Studio Sanctuaries - Part 2

Few things are more important to an artist than their workspaces. Part sanctuary, part workshop, part hang-out: This exhibit honors our studio spaces where we spend most of our time.

These are sooooo cool!  Thanks for sharing them!  Dang, I need to get more space.

I finally looked at these wonderful images. Humble or grand it is inspiring to see other artist spaces.

Hi Pat,

I can reshoot my studio photos if you like. The day I took pics my camera was somewhere else, so I used my phone. Just let me know. It really is fun to see these spaces.

Anthony,
Excellent ideas !!! But let's not put all of the burden on Pat- unless, of course, she won't mind-, how about some of you guys do this cooperatively with her, or you form completely new teams? If anyone here is up for getting a show about booths or sale spaces together, let me know. Both ideas sound really good !!

Pat, you’ve done such a great job with the presentation of the work spaces. Now that we’ve seen where the art is made it might be interesting to see where it’s sold. A companion exhibit of members’ show booths would be interesting as well as instructive.

https://www.createspace.com/?ref=478921&utm_id=5685 here is their web address. Blurb is hella expensive. I won't know for some time how the it turns out because just getting ready is taking me so long. I am hopeful about speeding up the process now that I have Openoffice.org which allows me to make PDFs and combine text and images oh so very easily!

Thanks for the tip, Jenny! If you have some time (ha ha ha) could you maybe post about this particular publishing experience for us? In a separate blog with images etc, that would work best. I'd like to know how smooth everything went from start to finish, and what the pitfalls are so that people can compare your experience with blurb and all the other self-publishing situations. Thanks in advance!

There is a way to do a book by sending PDFs to Amazon and they create the book for you. It is very inexpensive, it's what I am working on for my tin book.

Pat, I've got images coming soon...

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!

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.

Artisanal Pencil Sharpening

"Boy am I glad I saw this. I learned, or thought I learned how to sharpen a pencil with a jack knife at my father's knee. But he neglected to tell me how lucrative it could be, and how exacting. If David Rees would have been my mentor, I would…"
