Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Topeka, KS
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
I have my owen studio at home, so I can work and take care of my son!
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I'm a Graduate of the University of Kansas with a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry!

In the Fall 2008 (October 31st through November 2nd) myself and 9 other students from the University of Kansas along with 2 faculty members went to Eutin, Germany for an art exhibition. Eutin is the Sister City of Lawrence, KS. We had 8 weeks to create 3-4 pieces of our choice that went together as a whole. It was an amazing experience for me. I sold a ring for 100 Euros. I was proud of myself and my fellow students for 8 weeks of hard work! This was an experience I'll never forget!

April 3rd, 2009 I will be displaying my work at 3rd Eye Production Gallery in Kansas City, Mo for the First Fridays event!

Hello Britta:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us !

Please add your comments to the blog/discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the FAQs section on crafthaus. Crafthaus is a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee is involved in being a member here, and you will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQ section.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome and enjoy !

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip!

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.
