Hi Michael.....I'm not only a big fan of yours, I even have your big, round "hubcap" kinetic ring which I wear every day.  I'm constantly stopped by people wherever I go so they can look at the ring.  It's so nice to be able to meet you!!!

Ok your work is amazing!!!
consider that this comment should go to each single photo of your gallery, but I didn't want to look crazy repeating the same comment to each of them, but every single piece left me speechless!!!!!

OBWOHL Du aus Duesseldorf kommst, machst Du echt tolle Sachen !

Brigitte (aus Koeln)



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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....


Rachel and Brigitte got started on their own cooperation. Follow along and comment.
