Poem @ Pittenweem



Today I received the lovely news that a piece from my Vanity Series, the Vintage Powder Puff Neckpiece, was sold. The piece had been on display at Pittenweem Arts Festival as part of a small exhibition of works to be displayed alongside poems inspired by them. A beautiful poem called "Amanda & Edward" by Olga Wojtas was created. I loved the poem as I had no idea how the poet would interpret the work; whether the "vanity" aspect would come up, so I loved that it has been romanticised - a medallion-style tribute to a small feature loved by a partner. In fact I really wish this had been the original theme!

Amanda and Edward

Amanda was a woman of keen intelligence. 
“Do you love me?” she asked. 
“I love you,” Edward said. 
“Why do you love me?” she asked further. 
“Because of your keen intelligence,” he said. 
But what he meant was because of your little retroussé nose. 
“How much do you love me?” she asked further still.
“With all my heart,” he said.
“Give me a love token,” she said, thinking that will prove how much you love me, for she was a woman of keen intelligence.
He had divers scour the South Seas for iridescent pearls. He had miners extract gleaming silver from the depths of Lower Silesia. He had sharp-eyed Belgian spinsters create fine needle-lace. And then he added a pink plump powder puff.
“A love token,” he said. “To celebrate your keen intelligence.”
And he imagined kissing the tip of her little retroussé nose.

Olga Wojtas

Hello Nicola,

Thanks for adding me as a friend. I do love your take on the female vanity procedures. I do have a lot of female friends that would benefit from the sayings on your powder puffs:))

Your contribution to the exhibit "Me, Myself and I" was inspiring!

Best, Sophia

Hello, We jury some of the art exhibitions here at Crafthaus. We want to invite you to look at our 2 calls:

Me, Myself and I
http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i

Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures

We try to make the process as painless as possible. A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage. We do love gallery shows, but here at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members.

Hope you enjoy Crafthaus, lots of great artists to connect with...good discussions.

Glen

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!
