As far as I am concerned, there can never be too many Pittsburghers on crafthaus :-) Glad you joined.
Please upload some images of your ceramics - and if you get a chance visit me at Luke & Eloy on 5169 Butler Street. I currently show 14 area metalsmiths and an artist from Detroit. Rust Belt focus :-))
I am sorry to hear about all the stuff going on in Braddock. I had the good fortune to listen to your major's deputy at the SCC a few week's back. Looks like you guys are trying as hard as you can. I was very impressed. Are you involved with their arts efforts ?
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for artists and fine craftsmen/women ! I am very glad you joined us !
Please add your thoughts to the blogs and discussion forums 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 will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before February 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.
All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT in both content and photo quality. From the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible.
Crafthaus does not support any kind of commercial solicitation of our membership. Anyone sending out communication of that kind will be suspended from the site.
Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

I think a polymath’s mirror is more of a prism. We look at ourselves and the world in broken partial images. Piecing it all together doesn’t assemble in any ordinary way - or even the same way twice. The trick is making that work to our advantage, or least not be a detriment. I often find myself rattling all the complications and possible directions in my life like dice and throwing them down to see if randomness can make something happen or if I should roll again.Whenever I look back over the…See More
