Since 1985, when I received my Masters of Fine Art at the University of California at Davis, I have been working as a professional artist in ceramic sculpture. My main interest has been in large figurative ceramic sculpture. In undergraduate and graduate school I was fortunate to have studied with the artist that put figurative ceramic sculpture on the map, Robert Arneson. Since then I have been showing in galleries and museums around the world and have been commissioned to do several public and private sculptures in bronze, fiberglass and ceramic.

ALoha Tony. No worries. I can barely keep up with FB and have kind of given up on trying to keep up with this Crafthaus. It's just too much computer. I prefer to be in the studio! I know you and your bro are on the outs, I just thought I'd mention it so you knew I was a "legit" artist and not one of your "groupies" LOL! LOVE the new "BOB" work! He was always one of the most influential guys in my life. When I was in H.S. (a budding) ceramicist, he was my hero. Well, him and Marilyn Levine. Bob for his politics and funk and Marilyn for her technique. My mom still has a clay leather jacket I copied of hers when I was a kid. I finished the giant sculpture I was working on when I wrote you the last note. Hallelujah! It made it to Davis without breaking in three enormous crates. Cost a bloody fortune to ship! Praying it sells. I'll see ya on FB. Until later...
Aloha Tony. I have loved your work for years!!! I am rep'd by your brother and I understand you did Wesley Anderegg's web site, which is awesome! He, Donna and Iz are good friends. Would like to meet you some day. DO you go to CCACA? Ia m currenty working on my first really big figurative piece and can use all the help I can get. Have been getting some help from Lisa Reinertson and Esther Shimazu but am still having "issues". Working on the fourth incarnation of the damn thing. Would love input from you too.
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?

"absolutely, great article!! Every maker should think about the reason and the end-point of their work- what will happen to it, what is it made from, if it has a limited lifespan can it then be re-used, if it is worth bringing another thing into a…"
