"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…"

"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…"

"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."

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

What is broken is not lost - Packaging

Artist: Natalia Araya

Sometimes, when something is broken, we take it for granted and decide it doesn't serve its purpose anymore. It just will never be the same again. Even if it's fixed, we are overlooking the immense potential things can have. With this small series, I would like to invite you to think twice next time something (or someone) broken crosses your path.

Horse: Porcelain, sterling silver, watch parts, leather.
