"This is so very beautiful. I love the dimensionality of the covers. I'm assuming there is a form/armature on which the leather is stretched. Would you mind describing how that is accomplished? You can email me directly, if you wish…"

For me, art is like a science experiment. I create a problem for myself out of curiosity then set about solving it through trial and error using my knowledge of form and balance.

I gather my inspiration by combing through antique and discount stores. I don't seek out specific items. Instead, I dissect everything I see into its component parts and find those that fit my ideas or inspire new ones. Just like each answer gives birth to new questions, so do my creations spawn new ideas for my next project.

My books are the result of my fascination with strange objects and my love of the book form. The smell and sound of a book fill me with a certain calming satisfaction and the mystery of a secret place I always wanted to be. I combine the Ethiopian style bookbinding technique with the spontaneity of assemblage. The result is an object that comes from that hideaway, that secret cubbyhole that my inner self still longs to visit.

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.....

OFF TO THE RACES:

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