New in Enamel on Steel – Some Insights

After the enamel course I taught at Pratt in November/December, I was inspired to make some holiday ornaments (insert your regional nomenclature here – the Perth of my youth would say ‘Christmas decorations’) with tin-cans and enamel. I should have known better!The thin steel doesn’t take too many layers of enamel well, and when I experiment on what are meant to be finished pieces, I always end up…See More

Sean + Melissa, the continuing tale!

As I sizzled in the last post; the Co:operation Garnish experiment between Melissa + Sean Macmillan has already netted 2 neckpieces, in stainless steel and vitreous enamel with titanium hinge pins. These are the test pieces - a sort of proof of concept. The actual part that will allow Sean to work his magic was sent to the laser cutter earlier today.…See More

Step two - laser cut tests

So we began this project a little while ago now, and the last post left off when I was just at the point of deciding; "At what size/scale should the finished pattern be?"Cut to a few months later, and here are some images of the sample squares of pattern that I’ve had cut, checked out and then sent off to Sean to play…See More

No idea what was in it. I refreshed which tin, and I had gotten it at an estate sale. Sorry I couldn't help!

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us!

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

Please note that crafthaus is an edited and member-financed website, and a small fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. Your membership fee is due on Jan. 15, 2011, information about payment options are posted in the FAQs section.

ALL images sent to the website editor 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 (their peers,) 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 there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime, 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
Crafthaus Editor

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
