"No, it is not the future of handcrafted, it may be the future of industrial design but not craft. The core of craft is the hand and eye controlling tools to create an object. When the machine eliminates that hand eye coordination and control then it…"

Hi Jim,

Good to hear from you. As to the weather, we got 4 inches of snow last night and the temperature is up to a balmy 18 degrees. Better than the flooding you have, but real winter.

Happy new year,

Don

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

Takahiro Iwasaki - Miniature Scenes made of Fibers, Dust & Hair

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!
