Profile Information

Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
There is a symbiotic relationship between fine art and all forms of design - a conceptual fluidity where influences may move freely between disciplines promoting exchange and evolution.

I am inspired by the form, colors and textures of objects both artistic and common: architecture, furniture, paintings, ceramics, fashion...

My work is based on geometric shapes - their inherent strength, applicability, and timelessness command my respect.

Balance rather than symmetry.

By 1975 I had completed my fundamental studies in jewelry design and began experimenting with various metals and techniques. I knew that jewelry making was my direction, my métier. Two years later Janis Kerman Design was established. The focus of my work for the next ten years was the design and production of limited edition collections, detailing for fashion accessories and unique pieces. Though I enjoyed the production years and the fact that my designs were available to many, my need to focus on unique pieces was determining the next era of work. Since 1986, I have been working exclusively in precious metals, gems and experimental materials.

We jury some of the online exhibitions at Crafthaus and are inviting you to submit to our calls-
Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures
Me, Myself and I http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i
Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty
A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Glen & Marie

Hello Janis:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us and thank you for adding images of your beautiful work so quickly.

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.
