Hmm, art history and ceramics ? AWESOME !! Actually: ENVIABLE is more like it. Back when I was young (that was when the dinosaurs still roamed the earth), I wanted to study art history too...Oh well. It's still one of my favorite topics.

And did you know there is a ceramics group here on crafthaus you could join and possibly team up with ?
In and out of clay. If I were you, I would ask Margaret and Elizabeth if they could use another blogger/contributor and start commenting on their blogs. We do have a fair number of ceramicists on the site, but they seem to be hiding behind the jewelry people.

Lots to do here to make your mark. :-))

I'm listening, what do you want to chat about???
At 1:53pm on October 20, 2010, Brigitte Martin said…
I absolutely hear what you are saying.

It is certainly true that a lot of people here have an academic background and work in different techniques than wire wrapping. It is also true that there are not only jewelry academics here. So my best suggestion would be for you to "forget the "differences" for a moment, like what it is you are doing and what techniques others are employing, and instead start thinking about what you may have IN COMMON. Crafthaus is a wide network and you will definitively find people here who are interested in topics you are interested in too.

So how about starting a discussion thread/blog about a topic you are knowledgeable about, such as gemstones, tools, and - yes - wire wrapping itself ? How about being proactive in your special field and shoot a little video about you in your studio, or do an instructional essay with lots of photos, a play-by-play of a certain wire-wrarpping technique you excel at ? I would LOVE that!! You could become the wire wrapping advocate here :-) I am serious!!

If you start a blog or discussion, I can also feature you in one of my weekly email blasts and that's a real good way to spread the word.

As you noted, I could not agree more: It's not so much about getting accepted by others, it's what it is you do with the tools you have and the information you are able to dispense.

If you are interested to do start blogging about gemstones/wire wrapping or any other topic of your interest, please shoot me a direct mail to crafthauseditor [at ] live.com and we will figure something out together :-))

Best,
B.

I'm listening :-) but this is different from facebook. If you want responses to certain topics it might be better to start a blog or discussion thread :-) Go right ahead.
 
 
 

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.
