The Annual I Hate Winter Blog Post: Things I'm looking forward to edition.

Posted on February 1, 2011 at 1:45pm 0 Comments

It's the first of February (Imbolc if you know your pagan holidays).  This means we are now at the halfway point between the Solstice and the Equinox (read: between the frozen hell of Northeastern Winter and the glorious but short lived Spring.)  Tomorrow some old white men will withdraw a portly rodent from a cage and pretend it can predict the future.  I don't pretend to understand.

 

I am in the midst of my annual late winter sulking but as that is not a productive way to…

Greener Grass: Leaded v. Unleaded Vitrious Enamels

Posted on October 21, 2010 at 10:31am 3 Comments

The latest newsletter from Schlaifer's Enameling Supply announcing the arrival of discontinued Thompson Leaded enamels has re-piqued what was already a burgeoning curiosity. I've never worked with leaded enamels and wonder about their advantages (and perhaps disadvantages). There is admittedly an appeal in something that requires a little more care and caution (though, lead free vitrious enamels require plenty of this as well). Next paycheck i think i will put a little money into this…

The Sketchbook Project 2010

Posted on October 8, 2010 at 10:09am 2 Comments

I got my 5x8.5 Black Moleskine two days ago for the Sketchbook Project ( http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject ).

Eventhough I am pretty excited about the possibilities of this little book, I have only barely started to decorate the inside cover. There is something daunting about a blank book. Even more daunting is knowing the book won't go on my shelf when it's full but will go away and…

I haven't made a single thing in three weeks and it is weighing on me.

Posted on May 6, 2010 at 11:30am 5 Comments

I haven't made a single thing in three weeks and it is weighing on me.

What began as a well deserved break after two extra productive months has shifted into an unwelcome lull. I have illustrations to work on for two different projects, and even just sketching feels daunting. I cleaned and rearranged my studio and re-organized my supplies but i haven't been able to just spend a day at my bench and i think that is what i really…

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!
