"Hi, Drew. I see you make furniture in addition to your work in jewelry. That's great to see. Those of us who make larger scale work are in the minority here at Crafthaus. I hope you find the site useful, and I look forward to seeing your work.…"
"Hi, Emily. It's great to see a curator on the site. We share a lot of encouraging comments with each other, but I hope you will a provide a different slant, with outside criticism we can use to improve our work. I hope you find the people and…"
"I watched that movie a while back and it is, as you say, amazing. Trying to get out of my head, though, I took a different tack and started a figure drawing group. My primary work is in steel and I draw abstracts, but I have this idea that practice…"
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
I cut and weld in a basement storage room but bend metal rod on a vise mounted outside in the yard.
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I'm an independent artist working in my spare time. I've worked steel for four years now. I also draw abstracts and was a semi-pro photographer before I started in steel. I left art school decades ago for a writing career. My goal is to reenter the art world.

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 June 15, 2013.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

"Victoria, and everyone, I only realized recently (within the past year at most) that if I started a post that I could delete the post, and or a comment so don't feel bad.
Going back to Victoira's comment about shunning: My daughter…"
"To address One of Harriet's comments about deleting the original post to bring a quick end to the tirade, I didn't know one could! If there is an incident, where I started the post, I'll do just that. I was mistakenly under the…"
"The point that I would like to make clear is that we can ALL take responsibility for action.
Even though MU or any other site has administrators, if you started a discussion you can delete the discussion or an individual post. You have the power of…"
"The incident everyone is demurring about happened on the Facebook site Metalsmith's Unite. Not sure why we are so circumspect in just saying this out loud. MU grew in size and notoriety rapidly and was a hot bed of bad online behavior, marked…"
I witnessed a bunch of troublesome ‘discussions’ this past week. Not on crafthaus and not directed at me personally, but troublesome nevertheless. They also weren’t real discussions either, as in: a respectful exchange of opinions where one side hears the other out. It…
