Hi Tom! Is that Thorn Teapot really yours. I don't remember ever seeing it. I also have never seen the bottle stopper. Both very nice pieces. You work is terrific.

An exciting new arts journal, ANCORA IMPARO, went live this month with its latest issue, including an illustrated feature of some of my most noted metalworks and their inspirations in the world of birds, along with thoughts on craft, art, bird photography and the study of natural history. Enjoy your viewing!

Tom,

Tadas named the new black swallowtail butterfly, "Wing." Yesterday, we turned our master bathroom into a butterfly house. We are patiently waiting for the rest of the butterflies to emerge. Today's secret ingredient...mashed watermelon.

Hi Tom,
Thanks for the invite!

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.

Rachel and Brigitte got started on their own cooperation. Follow along and comment.
