Thank you, Danielle. I love your work! Have you started your Yuma pins yet?

Hello Danielle - it's wonderful to see such beautifully complex work appear to be simple and quiet...just lovely pieces. There are so many of us working with similar ideas - the collective unconscious at work?

Hey, thanks! I like your work too -- I had seen the cactus-like brooch before and I love the other pieces you have pictures of. Very biologically provocative and mysterious! And I thought your statement was intriguing and well-written; sounds like our interests overlap a lot. I've been noticing that there are a lot of metalsmiths who work with these kinds of issues.... Maybe we should form an interest group -- "Artists Who Dig Biology!"
I look forward to seeing what you make in the future!

Metalwork and ornament have a longstanding relationship with the natural world. My work is linked to this tradition, using the visual language of nature to present the viewer with an alternate perspective of the world we inhabit. Protection, self-preservation, vulnerability, openness, reproduction, sexuality, growth, aggression, conflict, illness, decay, life and death cycles are themes I visually engage and reference. Rather than simply representing the natural world, I prefer exaggerated, artificial forms that speak of an engineered biology. My intention is to resist that which is commonly considered universal or essential, and open a dialogue about what is assumed to be “natural”.

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.

"Thank you, Ann. I cannot take credit for this show though. Professor Astfalck and her students put this up, not me. I'm sure they're happy to hear you find the work interesting! Thanks."

London and the South/Dundee and the North

Since my last post, I've been on the south coast of England, variously in London, Folkestone and Brighton. What should have been a very relaxing weekend proved to be anything but, albeit in a good way. Very good, in fact, as it kicked off with seeing Kate Bush perform her "Before The Dawn" concert at the Hammersmith Apollo.…See More
