I have been working in my medium since 1972 and am basically self-taught. I came to enameling by accident while studying on a Fulbright Scholarship to Germany in 1968-9. When I first saw something red hot and molten emerging from an enameling kiln and then watched as brilliant transparent colors and the gloss of glass appeared gradually before my eyes, I was hooked. Enameling was destined to become my profession and my way of life. I am currently on the board of the Northern California Enamel Guild. I sell my work through retail crafts fairs and through my website at www.jstoneenamels.com. I have taught enameling all over the U. S. I currently teach enameling at The Crucible in Oakland, CA.

A friend and I are going to jump in on that class you are teaching in the summer at the Crucible Judy. I became a member last week. Looking forward to the details being released and getting very excited. I have the small book about the Fred Ball Enamels from the Enamel Arts Foundation. I'm glad you are going to explain and enlighten. Looking forward to it.
Welcome to crafthaus. These pieces are lovely. I started the New Jersey Metal Arts Guild with Amy Roper Lyons, in order to recreate the wonderful sense of community which I consider you a part of, that I experienced in the Bay Area.
“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.”
"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'm pretty sure I know the online incident you are referring to Brigitte, it really shocked me too. Like Peggy, I enjoyed the technical discussions and information exchanged, but was always very confused by the odd and rather constant…"
"Everyone listening to this post by Brigitte also has the power to make the change they want to see. If you see a comment that you think might be misunderstood, you could ask for clarification or correction from the writer.

"I did not see the post that Brigitte (and some others) have referred to, but have noticed this phenomena on several discussion forums. It is very unfortunate that this situation seems to repeatedly happen. There are discussion forums that I…"

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…
