"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"

Hola Tom Supensky. We have met, i have attended some of the CASE meetings in Augusta, as well as art openings. I have been very busy with family, my father mostly, but am firing soon, so in my mind i am getting back to the business i love. i was a member of the Aiken Guild, but when my father had a stroke i was traveling back and forth to NC, so i didn't have much time. With each passing day i "think" my life is about to get back to normal, instead of this being the new normal. not to mention, i know have a load of new imagery and ideas to work with. hope to meet up soon.

"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."

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!
