"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

I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am a one man studio woodworker. I work in a variety of scales and types of work with wood but mostly studio furniture. My work is typically sold through art galleries but I also do commission work as well.
I typically work with hardwoods of exceptional figure and character. Aside from furniture I also make unique jewelry furnishings and boxes and I turn wood and create sculptural forms. I was the 2007 NICHE Award winner for Turned Wood.
Should any jewelry artists at Crafhaus know of clients in need of unique Jewelry furnishings or boxes I would welcome referals or work with you in collaboration.

Hello Thomas:

Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us. There are a number of amazing woodworkers on crafthaus already - so you will fit right in :-).

Please add a few images of your work and your comments to the blog/discussion topics that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network and find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

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

Again: Welcome !

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.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.

The radio show will be LIVE on air September 25, 2014 @ 6PM EST / 3 PM Pacific.
