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.

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

featured artists! woop woop! How are you? what are you up to!?
 
 
 

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.

Behind the Brooch

This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With this exhibition, I would like to let you in on that secret, something that typically only the maker and the wearer know about. I hope you will enjoy with me this selection of brooches by…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
