Creative Insomnia

Posted on October 7, 2012 at 10:45pm 0 Comments

My work in the studio is spent going back and forth between mining the old ideas and ushering in the new. Truthfully my mind is many steps ahead of my hands. I think I have always lived with  creative insomnia. Restless with things that I've explored before, wanting to push into the unknown, living with the risk and challenge that comes with that territory is easier for me than boredom.

Once I have an idea I have to judge my commitment to it. Is it urgent enough that I must…

Thank you! The syringe fully functions and the finger extends to poke whoever you're interacting with. I made it with the intentions of being a socialization 'prosthesis'. I love to create work that will peek people's curiosity, thank you for sharing yours :]

 
 
 

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, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

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.
