2Roses commented on Jivan Astfalck's group metaFORM Exhibition
"Very impressed with the concepts and execution of the work presented here. Even more so with some of the presentations themselves. The photos of the work are every bit as innovative as the work itself. Overall, a stunningly well done exhibition."

Caught in the time warp of Art Versus Craft

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 1:28am 0 Comments

We participate in a creative exercise related to EtsyMetal, a group of metalsmiths organized around Etsy. The exercise is called "Blog Carnival". Each month a topic is chosen and a variety of members from this international group each provide their individual perspectives on the subject. We thought (mistakenly) that we had scraped the subject of Art Versus Craft off our shoes for good. Thanks to Blog Carnival we have stepped in it again.

You may have heard all the ruckus about Pinterest of late and wondered, why is this such a big deal? It looks like this is just a successful social networking site that is driving lots of traffic to my Etsy shop.  Well…not exactly.   Read on and I’ll explain how sites like Pinterest really make money.  Note: I am using Pinterest as just one example of a type of website/business model that is growing rapidly.
