Steve Shelby commented on Brigitte Martin's group Co:Operation GARNISH
"Thanks Rachel. I agree about third person; I never have felt comfortable writing that way, but some venues require it. Now I have some sense of direction. I think we'll both write our own version, then do whatever mix and match editing we can…"

"Linda Savineau and I are getting our project near completion, and working on the entry. Neither of us can quite get a handle on what is wanted for the joint statement. Should it be written so it appears to be narrated by a third party talking about…"

"As I look at other artist's work, especially those whose style and use of materials is diametrically opposed to mine, I keep thinking "how in hell can my work and theirs be put together into a unified work of art?" It goes against all…"

Steve Shelby commented on Brigitte Martin's group Co:Operation GARNISH
"This reminds me of projects I've read about, like for instance an orchestra in Israel, made up of young Jews and Palestinians. It was a touching story. At least here, we are not killing each other over our artistic differences. This will be a…"

John Lunn left a comment for Steve Shelby
"Man, you said a mouthful there, Steve. Summed up the bane of my life as a traditional flutemaker. Ends up being an assembly job if you let it. And I think of wind instruments, flutists are the worst sticklers for tradition."

"Thanks, John. The thing I found about the woodwind business is that they are so tied to tradition, they won't consider anything at all different or new."

"I should add that I like your work. The abstracts aren't so much my taste but the workmanship is superb and the flowers, bird and frog pitcher strike a bell with me."

John Lunn left a comment for Steve Shelby
"That is the problem with instrument making - uniformity is the name of the game. That's why I turned my flutes into an art form. You know, screw 'em if they can't take a joke."

Steve Shelby left a comment for John Lunn
"Hi John. I love your flute. I worked at a job for 23 years making keys and the metal parts for contrabassoons. Unfortunately, there was no creativity involved. The upside is that I learned a huge amount about working with metal and making tools."

Steve Shelby commented on Rebecca Rose's group Showing Publicly and Building a Legacy Privately
"Hi Rebecca. I have had probably a 50% success rate entering juried exhibitions, which I think is actually pretty good. I don't do shows where you go and peddle your wares from a booth. The exhibitions I've been in are held in art museums…"

Thank you for making me a featured artist!
Tonight is the opening of a show in Fort Wayne, Indiana, which will have on display, among many other great things, my Tea Wrex teapot. The show runs until Aug 20.

Thank you, Steve;envious of your lotus pond!  I'm hoping to take a repousse/chasing class soon. I'd like to add metalwork in my furniture. Your work has inspired me further.

I look forward to seeing more of it, regularly.

Steve,

 

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through July 15, 2012.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! 

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime, I will do my best to be of help.

I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
