I know you are hard at work. Did you want to submit?

There are a number of ways an artist can be considered "green." Here are just several:
1. Using found materials and remanufactured objects & materials.
2. Rescued materials, years ago this was known as recycled such as lumber from fallen tree.
3. A ceramic artist may use wood found in the forest... to fuel the kiln.
4. Using materials that are local, not shipped long distance.
5. Using one's hands as opposed to using large machines.
Me, Myself and I http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i
Some ideas: clock, mirror, perfume bottle, brushes, lamp, make up table, vase. A jewelry box or something that can store/hang jewelry. A water glass, a frame. Containers for powder, jars, storage for brushes.. makeup... decorative items... As you can see it is anything that is used or displayed at a makeup table.
Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty
If you are not sure if your piece will fit the call, no problem send it to us & we will look at it.
Best,
Marie

Hilary:

I have been looking at your interesting logo icon and am anxious to see some more pictures of your work. We do have a lot of really fabulous jewelry and metal pieces on the site, which is great, but I think it's time we also feature other media on crafthaus as well :-) so I am interested to see your larger installations as well as your jewelry...

BTW: Artemis Herber, (another fine artist on crafthaus) makes the most impressive sculptures from simple cardboard. Take a look. She recently exhibited at the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo with her installation "Walls of Love".

Have a great day,
Brigitte

This group works on MY precious schedule! (aka in the middle of the night when I can't sleep that's when I get my blog reading done!) I thought it would be fun to participate in some of the discussions here, like the one about weird tools.

Dear Hilary:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us.

At the moment, there is a surge in activity on the site, so if you would like to add images of your pieces to your profile then a lot of people will be getting to see your work. If you can, please be sure to continue spreading the word about crafthaus to your fellow artist friends, so that everyone gets the maximum benefit out of this project.

Also, please feel free to add your comments to the discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

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

Again: Welcome !

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!
