I first attended Haystack in 1992, and feel fortunate to have been invited back every year since. While there, I created some of my most important works, in books, mixed media and clay. The experiences changed my life, and the people I met during those summers are precious.
Last year was probably my last, as I moved to Southern Californa to be closer to my family. As I no longer fly, other than in my dreams and imagination, trips across country to Maine will be difficult and costly. But Haystack (and its memories of limitless bacon and whipped cream) will always remain my Paradise.

"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,
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!
