Retracing my steps: Explorations in Fiber Sculpture at Arrowmont

Arrowmont: after 25 years, I am returning to the place where it all started for me as a fiber artist.  That embarrassing picture is me, Amber O’Harrow (then Amber Wood), with my first weaving, turned into a bag.  Let’s see where my journey has led me since then, as I follow my guide, Pat Hickman on an exploration of fiber sculpture at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. See More

Play That Funky Music !

Exhibition Date May 1 - June 1, 2014 You hear a piece of music and it sends you back in time. Suddenly you remember situations, sights, smells, and certain people as if it happened yesterday. What is the relationship between music and craft? Are there craft pieces that relate to favorite songs?How about a vase made while listening to opera? A table inspired by hard rock? Footwear to go with Lady Gaga? What are the lyrics that draw you in and inspire you to create?See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With…See More

Studio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am a visual artist and jewelry designer from Greece.
I studied history and archeology and dealt professionally in these fields as well as in the field of archives and consequently the concepts of memory, time, damage run, more or less obviously, through my work.

The perforated leaves of my necklaces, the deconstructed and then trimmed with embroidery fabric express my feeling about the past, the threads of the weft of history that reach us.

I am fascinated by the process of transforming common fabrics into unique pieces, undermining their coherence and "destroying" them by heat in a different approach of hand-made.

Jewelry moving freely along with the body, letting the air through the countless holes and cracks, "laces" that are not what they seem, textiles seeming precious, without being so.

I also use worn objects, whose life cycle has expired (used color catchers pressed coils, springs, plastic bags) and give them a second chance, a new life cycle, in a game of continuous transformation of objects, often alongside other precious materials like silver, that compete them on equal terms.

A key element of my jewelry is also the color whether it is about work on the fabric, or metal oxidation and colorization techniques. At the same time the game of the cord of the camera on oxidized surfaces ("Secret alphabets"), the movement of the bur on the metal and the walk of thread on the fabric, is my way of creating personal alphabets, secret scripts and words, traces and imprints.

Many of my jewelry pieces are mere reminders of moments, thoughts, and emotions. Dolls, clowns, little fairies, Rodrigo Floncinello, Eugenio and Anselmo, Vilma, Rodolpha, Sylvestrina, this is my little world. When the night falls, the small figures move and stir, come to life, and each one tells its own story.

Hello Kallia,

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through September 15, 2014.


Please look around, add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions and post images and video. Crafthaus is a participatory sport so don't hold back. We truly welcome your blogs, discussions and comments. This is the point of crafthaus!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website 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 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 your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please refer to the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab for questions.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, 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.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
