hi deb, i don't know if you remember helping me out a year or two ago about how to fire larger pieces, but it worked like a charm. i have a different question that you might be able to help with. i want to be able to fire pieces that are going to take more heat than i'm presently using and i'm going to be building a new ventilation system to handle it. can you give me any help with what kind of fan i should get? we're thinking of building a large come format over the work space but i'm not sure what kind of fan to get. any help or direction you can give would be greatly appreciated. hey, will you be at the conf in toronto? anne

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.

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!
