"I bet psycholgists could spend years figuring us all out by the looks of our studios. ;-)  But seriously, I think we are interested in seeing other's work spaces.  It's like a window into who they are and how they work. …"

Studio Sanctuaries - Part 3

Few things are more important to an artist than their workspaces. Part sanctuary, part workshop, part hang-out. This exhibit honors our studio spaces where we spend most of our time. Take a peek inside the third edition.http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/studio-sanctuaries-part-3See More

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!
