Behind the Brooch

This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More

Thanks for the invite

Brigitte, thanks for the invite to join this amazing group of artist. I have posted some images from a show I had about a year ago. It was the first time I had been able to show so many of my works in one exhibit. There were about 70 works installed, most of them on a large table that was built for the exhibit and covered with small stones. Then the curators of the gallery took my work and created an environment with my work. It was exciting for me to see my works in a totally different environment. I was used to seeing them in a timeline according to the when the works were completed but this jumbled everything up time wise. It became a small community of works with different sculptures interacting with each other. It was fun to talk to the installers of the show and find out why they put different works together.

I have also worked on a number of collaborative works over the last few years with other person in the Los Angeles area that created knotted sculptures and some of those can be seen on my Flickr site. Norman

Norman,
We were just overnight in your fair city. Discovered "Old Town" for the first time of the many trips/overnights through Eureka. Can you believe it?!! Nonetheless, your work is terrific. Was your show (your photos) in Arcata? Not sure where the HSU gallery is, but will look for it next time we visit Eureka. Congratulations on being showcased on Crafthaus!

Hi there,
I was on crafthaus the site when I noticed an ad for YES on prop 8 (in california). I wrote an email to the founder and realize she may not know who advertises on the site. Prop 8 is offensive and discriminatory-should she allow ads for the nazi party or child porno? I encourage all of you to email Brigite Martin-educating her on this problem. The ad says that prop 8 "supports marriage rights, protect traditional marriage" we all know what it means, any %$@#*! straight couple can get hitched but a couple who have shared their lives for 25 + years through family, illness, happiness and death can't be called a family by our government. Any straight couple can get married after knowing one another for a minute but a true family, those who have spent their lives together can't get the same -federal-rights.

Please email Brigitte and let her know that this ad is on crafthaus-It does not represent my opinions, beliefs, and morals, Let her know what you think. Brigitte Martin, LUKE & ELOY, Gallery Director
Editor, www.crafthaus.ning.com


Please send her an email now.
thanks,
alison

Hi Norman,

Thanks a bunch, the contents are mostly garnets and sugar. The one on the left also includes string and the one on the right steel. The rings were a reflection of the idea of growth of artificial stones. It seem strange to me that we can now artificially create stones through simulating the right conditions. The "pedestals and vatrines" grew out of frustration of some galleries displays of work and I thought if only I created my own display for the work maybe the work would be better off. Then I started to think about how collectors of work really curate their own shows through wearing the work and walla candy rings. I hope to expand the series in the near future but have had to change course for a bit. I will get back to this work soon, I find it most amusing. Thanks for your comment.

Dear Norman:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am glad you joined us and made your way over here from Luke & Eloy Gallery.

There is always a lot of activity on the site, so it would be great if you could upload some images of your phantastic work for all of us to see. When you do so, please upload the pictures via the PHOTO link on the main webpage. That way your images appear in the main slide show and on your personal page. Thank you.

Also, please feel free to add your comments to the blog/discussion topics 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 find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome !

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.
