Hi Sarah, thankyou for the kind comments, I havn't been on Crafthouse for a litle while, it is very encouraging, and motivating! Your works are very interesting, I love the fluidity. I would love to come to the opening of your show at Guyomarc'h- I live about 15 mins walk away! I have a very busy April planned, what are the dates? Kate.
I would love, love, love that. We will have to plan it for September since I'll be gone all summer teaching at an arts camp where my kids go. In the meantime, I'll post some pictures on my blog of the set up I'm using to work in my room, since the evenings are a bit too cool in my indoor/outdoor studio at camp. It's all so compact, it'll be a fun challenge.
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!
