Artist Statement

Captivated by religious reliquaries, I’m fascinated with creating artwork that houses found objects.  Historically, a reliquary is a shrine that contains relics, which are remains of holy saints. I remember attending Catholic Mass growing up and I recall two shrines that were on display, one containing a chunk of wood from Jesus’ manger and the other having a small portion of Mary’s cloak. These items were housed in beautiful, elaborately decorated vessels. These reliquaries from my childhood have become inspiration as I craft my own hallowed place for treasures that have been left behind for me to discover and cherish. In my work I create narratives using family heirlooms and prized found objects with imaginative and thoughtful attention to detail. With each piece that is created, I deliberately choose shapes, textures and colors that strengthen the storyline and history of the piece. By utilizing both traditional and contemporary metalsmithing techniques, I am able to craft ornately decorated work that gives each nostalgic item a permanent place to elevate their significance.

Hello Meghann,

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 November 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. If you have some time, please take a look at this document, it provides background info about our network and can help to get you off to a better start.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin

HUNGER

Hunger, in all its metaphorical forms, is part of our personal and public conversation. Many of us struggle with HUNGERS, and yearn for the pleasure of food, love, possessions, control, sex or P O W E R.The works selected for this exhibition offer a wide range of ideas and images which go beyond food.See More

Behind the Brooch

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 this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…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.
