Hi Adam,

             We live just a few blocks from the Glass Center.  Your work looks familiar.

I havn't been up to Touchstone since I taught there about 6 years ago. Please do keep in touch.

Hi Adam, good to meet you, I appreciate you reaching out to make a connection with me (and other regional artisans).  I will check in to see what is going on at Touchstone & feel free to send any info my way. ~Laura

Glad to see all of the facebook postings.  Do you have a date for John Cogswell class next summer? I want to mark my calendar.

The blue steel is reclaimed material...it was part of a mechanism that would be picked up with a tow motor and used to tilt/pour a 55 gallon drum. I cut the useable pieces of steel out, worked the surface, drilled holes/filed them square/rectangle, etc. The other elements of the boxes are forged from reclaimed material (spline gears, etc.) as well.

Yes, I would be interested in teaching a workshop at Touchstone. I've taught at Penland, Peters Valley and Haystack...and I'm on the board of Haystack School. I've heard many positive things about the studios at Touchstone. Hopefully, we can work something out.

 
 
 

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!

London and the South/Dundee and the North

Since my last post, I've been on the south coast of England, variously in London, Folkestone and Brighton. What should have been a very relaxing weekend proved to be anything but, albeit in a good way. Very good, in fact, as it kicked off with seeing Kate Bush perform her "Before The Dawn" concert at the Hammersmith Apollo.…See More
