Bamboo mosaic with painted poplar wood "moon" and tooled bamboo "sky." Lower portion incorporates curved vines, beach stones, clear glass sphere, and blue fishing line, to represent "sea." This work is 10.5 x 10.5 inches.
"This piece is approximately 16" x 16". The materials are bamboo, carved twigs, and tooled cedar strips in the background. This idea originated with a visit to a Native American museum on trip to Montana. There was an old teepee…"
"Yes, the smokestacks are blown glass with a heavily cold-worked/engraved surface. I have a 35/40 grit grinding wheel that just eats up material but leaves a very rough surface. I then use a sealant to get the surface back to a more acid etched…"
"Yes, let's be friends Adam! Thanks for the glowing comments about my work.
Your glasswork is beautiful - great color and patina. Is that "smokestack" glass? Seeing the photo of the molten glass brings back the…"

Yes, the smokestacks are blown glass with a heavily cold-worked/engraved surface. I have a 35/40 grit grinding wheel that just eats up material but leaves a very rough surface. I then use a sealant to get the surface back to a more acid etched transparency while still keeping a toothy, brick like texture.
Feel free to join the TCC page. I am always looking to build our community as well. I really want TCC to better serve the regional craft ecology, including crafthausers.
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for artists and fine craftsmen/women ! I am very glad you joined us !
Please add your thoughts to the blogs and discussion forums that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.
I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before February 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.
All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT in both content and photo quality. From the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible.
Crafthaus does not support any kind of commercial solicitation of our membership. Anyone sending out communication of that kind will be suspended from the site.
Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help.
"I think that's a good and fair assessment. I agree with you, Linda, that there was more focus on video art than on the jewelry which would have been my preference too. However, getting people to pay attention in the first place is a feat in…"
"The videos are visually interesting, and, from what I could tell, the jewelry designs are interesting. I found that i was more interested in the visual impact of the videos, than in the jewelry. I wanted to see more of the jewelry. It seemed…"
"Ok Dauvit, I'll see your "Ghastly Thing" and raise you Forever Marilyn
This pandering piece of public upskirtery is by Seward Johnson who has a pretty impressive record of bad public art. The piece was on display for…"
""She-guardian" is bloody awful but somehow I really like it. (The tree, however... ) It is important to note that The Spectator magazine is notoriously - maybe even proudly - reactionary and right-wing.
My own choice would be this ghastly…"
"Congratulations, Heba. I look forward to hearing more about this when you get a chance. Will you be traveling to Dubai for this? Please post your info into the blogs, that way more people get to see it.
