"Michael, your wood hoard reminds me of my Dad, who carves song birds, waterfowl and fish. He has a stash of wood that he couldn't get through if he lived to be 300 years old!"

LOL! I've always been a wood fetishist, but mostly played with Pine and such, because it was cheap. Making the knives allows me to indulge it, and boy have I. I have a page on my knife website where I sell select woods, in order to trim down the hoard from time to time. I just got a new shipment, including 6 or 8 types I've never used before. Can't wait to play with them. I should post some pics of some of my fancier wood work.

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!
