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.

Hey Rimas,

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.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

"absolutely, great article!! Every maker should think about the reason and the end-point of their work- what will happen to it, what is it made from, if it has a limited lifespan can it then be re-used, if it is worth bringing another thing into a…"

"Great article. I posted it on my Facebook page, and it caused quite a bit of controversy. Overall, I agree with the article and suggest we think before we make. Harriete "
