Studio Sanctuaries - Part 2

Few things are more important to an artist than their workspaces. Part sanctuary, part workshop, part hang-out: This exhibit honors our studio spaces where we spend most of our time.

I recently won People's Choice Best of Jewelry in the Millicent Rogers Museum annual "Miniatures" show here in Taos. My award is dinner for two at the Bavarian Lodge, which is an enchanted traditional Alpine restaurant and hotel deep in the high country at Taos Ski Valley (elevation, approximately 11,000 ft). Since the lodge is closed in the off season, I "must" wait till summer to take advantage of this special gift. What a pleasure that will be!

I recently had 2 major surgeries, the first in my life. The recovery time is much slower and more tedious than I expected. My major frustration is not being able to get back in the studio yet and make jewelry. So, to fill the hours, I've been reading.

A Lot.

I love to read, but really. Can we just go whack on some metal now?

 

I recently read this article published in the Scientific American about how the creative mind is indeed different than a "normal" mind (See…

Every day is an opportunity to reinvent oneself. To me, this is a creative act, and one which requires a bit of courage. Pushing oneself out of the comfort zone can be hard work. Being creative every day can be hard work. There are days I'm intimidated by the self-appointed task of making a living through creativity. It can take a lot of energy, and at times, a little too much navel contemplation. 

 

This describes also my feeling of starting to write about my work, my process,…

Hello Gail,


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 April 15, 2012.
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 !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor
 
 
 

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.

Rachel and Brigitte got started on their own cooperation. Follow along and comment.

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! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
