FANMAIL: I know it was probably 10 or 11 years ago in Mendocino but it made me feel old so I was just being vague. Anyway, still, when I joined crafthaus there was a photo of one of your pieces up in the sidebar and every time I saw it, I laughed because I remembered our class. I still remember telling you I was Hungarian and that you had some of that in your family history too.
I treasure the cup I have that you made and still love your style. I'm working with metal clay for the last 10 years in between some ceramic sculpture. Your class was one of my best ceramic classes taken and gave me many things to think about - especially "color and line". If I had a list of artists that influenced me, you would be in the top ten of that list, even though I work in silver now. I sometimes check the internet for photos of your current work. I hope you are doing well.
Thank you for viewing this on-line exhibitionThis exhibition is a showcase for narrative work, with over 234 images it was decided that the exhibition would be in two parts with chapter two being on-line in January 2015I would like to personally thank all the makers who took the time to submit work for this on-line exhibition.

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!
