Plastic + Metal will be highlighted on Crafthaus from March 13 - April 13. This online exhibition shows different perspectives on how Crafthaus members are applying plastic and metal to craft objects.Curated By: Brice Garrett See More
These pieces you are making using the 3-D printing and classical subjects are remarkably elegant. I have seen only a few artist's work who are using this method. The eye opener for me is how you have made these pieces perfectly imitate the materials that would have been traditionally used. They really look like carved gemstones to me. Then seeing a neck piece done this way... my mind very briefly thinks, "My goodness that must weigh a ton". This is very interesting and beautiful work.
Rebecca, your work is stunning! I love the reference to cameos & intaglios, but there's also a really strong evocation of Lalique's figures and aesthetic. The combination of the historical influences and the ultramodern 3D printing is fascinating -- love it, love it!
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists, and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us !
Please feel free to look around, meet friends, and start adding your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussion forums that are 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. Crafthaus is a participatory sport ! 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 September 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.
ALL images sent to the website editor will be vetted to assure some measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, 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. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect ! If your photos do not get posted they are just not as good as they need to be. Yes, it's really that simple. Just reshoot and resubmit ! No harm done.
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 really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
