A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Marie

There are some AWESOME workshops coming up!!!
I have been waiting a LONG time for a detailed, high profile (and talented) enameler to visit us for a workshop...maybe with another "enamel' voice in the crowd...it will happen soon!
Check out the site and feel free to ask if you have any questions. I LOVE this group!! Everyone is very down to earth, and they are in the group for the art of the craft...no big heads...if you know what I mean!!!
Hope to see you soon! :-)
I saw your enameled rings a few weeks ago...and thought they were soooooooo pretty (I enamel too). But today I was searching (googeling) someones name and ran across your name because you live in St. Louis (me too). I didn't put the name with the rings until I saw your crafthaus page. Have you attended any of the SMM meetings??? I can't recall if I have seen you there. If not...you should really stop by!!! They are a very nice (and talented ) bunch of people!!! Love your work!
Welcome to crafthaus ! I am very glad you joined us.
Please add a few images of your work and your thoughts and comments to the blog/discussion topics 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 find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me anytime. I will do my best to be of help.
Again: Welcome !
Director, Luke & Eloy Gallery
“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

One would expect Jewelry artists to be limited to objects of personal adornment, but many contemporary makers in this field have gone beyond the constraints of functionality to pursue conceptual interests in areas such as photography, kinetics and sculpture. This exhibition seeks makers whose work demands…See More
This mural is drawn with one single line, an approach to craft that I have developed over the past three years.The line has been tested on ceramic tiles, drawings, canvas frames, pots and murals. When I finished drawing the mural, I traced my left hand at the very end of the continuous line (I am right handed), in order to start introducing myself, as the only inhabitant of this room, into the mural itself. To…See More

Another two-week hiatus between posts and it is only because I've been too busy to be able to find a moment to write things down. So much has happened, from being asked if I were "eligible" for inclusion in a list of "eligible bachelors" - my non-bachelor status making me ineligible for the inclusion - to being asked to write an article for a new jewellery magazine about something which isn't jewellery!
The main thing on the workbench has been another of my projects which was…
