Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More

Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Boise, Idaho
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
Studio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I like making things.
Your website, DIRECT flickr or DIRECT facebook links where your work can be seen.
http://camiruhclemo.com
What media do you work with?
I work with deconstructed kids meal toys, old food tins, tiny objects with a history...coins, buttons, saint medals, etc. I cast work in bronze, silicone and plastic. I also enjoy the freedom and spontaneity of working in clay.

My work is influenced by a career as a laboratory technician and a wastewater treatment plant operator.

Inspired by beauty and humor found in unexpected places, I share my enthusiastic view of the organisms that live in and around waste.

Food, water and waste are recurring topics in my work.

Food is a topic I often explore. Food is more than fuel. It forms memories and reinforces relationships. It is culture and ritual. At times, it is obsession. Food is a common thread that weaves us together.

Hello Cami,

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through January 15, 2013.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! 

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

I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome !
