"Most fabulous. All my work is narrative too. It is an urge that grew in me and has slowly permeated my entire practice. I now don't think I could work in any other way. Really looking forward to Chapter 2."

"Narrative can have a very wide definition.  I think my work is narrative in that I try to express some form of communication with my clay sculptures.  How can I get my work in the January show?Cheers, Tom www.tomsupensky.com"

"Superb collection! Can't wait for part 2.  All my work is "narrative" and I tend to like work by other makers which is also narrative. "

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!
