Hope the enamel cleaned off!

I am glad to hear that Zoe is still involved in the centre. She was helping out on a felting project at the end of my last visit. I am due to do another Artist and Kids workshop this year, so perhaps she will be about for that.

Thank you Sarah, I am really glad the symposium worked for you !!

Okay, now I sort of remember talking to some students. I remember a young woman asking me all sorts of enameling questions and writing notes - was that you?

Hope I sounded like I knew what I was talking about! :)

Hi Sarah -

I don't recall meeting you at ACC Baltimore in 2007 but my memory is bad - must be getting burned out from enamel and soldering fumes...or just the onset of old age! I hope that I was cordial to you!:)

Are you doing Baltimore this year? I applied to Retail Only and was rejected. I just got back from the Phila. Buyers Market last night - it was pretty empty, not very many buyers, many exhibitors didn't show up, the show turned empty booth spaces into "lounges," etc. I did manage to make expenses - many exhibitors didn't. It was scary. I had a friend along this year and we had fun anyway. Her first time at a wholesale show - she was a bit overwhelmed! I was just to tired and worried to care.... :)

Sarah:

I am glad you like the site and find it helpful in finishing projects :-).

Thank you very much for taking the time to post crafthaus information in your firm, that is exactly what I am hoping for. The site is intended to be of use for a diverse group of artists to get the most varied images and opinions together. I appreciate your help.

Have a good day,
Brigitte

Thank you for the welcome!
I posted the website for the Costume company I work for, http://www.cospec.com/costume_gallery.html. (We mostly do mascots/book characters, etc).
And yes, I graduated from Kent State last December. I'm enjoying this site so far and it's been a big help in motivating me to get some of my own projects finished!

Dear Sarah:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us.

At the moment, there is a lot of activity on the site, so if you would like to add some photos of your refurbished costumes to crafthaus, a lot of people would get to see this side of your work as well. I, personally, would be most interested to see that. :-)

From your website, I deduce that you are at Kent State and I just wanted to point out another Kent Grad, Michelle Pajak Reynolds, who is a member at crafthaus and does fabulous pieces. Maybe you would be interested to get in touch with her ?

Also, please feel free to add your comments to the 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 Conversation with Ceramic Artist Sharif Bey

Posted on January 12, 2013 at 10:13am 0 Comments

Raised in Pittsburgh, ceramics artist Sharif Bey is currently an assist professor in the the Art Ed department at Syracuse University.  He'll be visiting his home town and will teach a 2-day workshop at Society of Contemporary Craft later this month.  I asked him a few questions about growing up here and his work, thanks to Brigitte Martin for the introductory question. …

Recent Work- All Steel City Inspired

Posted on January 7, 2013 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

I've been spending a lot of time in the studio lately, it's cold and snowy so the warmth of the enameling kiln is very cozy.  On my walk to the studio I pass some visually interesting metal grates and sewer covers, not to mention all the bridges!

These things are evidence of urban…

SNAG Forging Entrepreneurs

Posted on August 31, 2012 at 10:30am 1 Comment

Last weekend I went to Pittsburgh and got to attend SNAG's Forging Entrepreneurs Symposium.  I met some awesome metalsmiths and got a lot of good information.  For my summary, check out my personal blog. Here's a preview:

This past weekend was the first SNAG Forging Entrepreneurs Symposium…

Continue
 
 
 

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.....

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.

The radio show will be LIVE on air September 25, 2014 @ 6PM EST / 3 PM Pacific.

Ife Head and Collar

I've been in the workshop a lot over the last week - not all of which has been to bury my head in the sand away from the increasingly nasty pro- and anti-independence campaigns in Scotland (which is also why I've not been so active on social media recently). Mostly, I've been working on commissions - a set of buttons, a couple of rings - and the collar…See More
