Reconstructing Our Second Skin: Gender in Contemporary Jewelry

In this crafthaus blog, I explore the intersection between gender and jewelry with a three-prong approach: interviewing artists who do not shy away from words like “gender issues,” “feminism,” and “sex”; analyzing the work of said artists and the reach of their work via questionnaires; and reinvigorating conversation about gender in jewelry by putting together an online exhibition.See More

Hi Seana-

This week is looking pretty full. I could try to make some time next week. Would we both have to be on-line at the same time?

I'm new to Crafthaus and still finding my way around. Happy to explore anything we can do to build inteest and awareness of the conference.

Thanks for posting your about the upcoming NCECA conference in Tampa- St. Pete. It's great that you mentioned pre-conference events, Notkin's exhibition at the Holocaust Museum and useful information about finding transportation and lodging. WIth so many exhibitions surrounding the conference site, the shuttle tours can also be an essential component of the NCECA conference experince. They can help you navigate to highlighted exhibitions and moderate the number of individual cars traveling around the region. They also offer a great opportuntity to network with other artists, students and educators.

sorry it took so long to reply you. It was nice to meet you again too Seana. I felt little bit strange coincidence with you. well, maybe not. if we both doing ceramics... End of the year I finally finished Lillstreet. We moved to Barnard Missouri. We will go to Japan for visit, and comeback in end of March, and planning to start build our own studio, and house! See you again. Momoko

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.
