Hi Tomi,
We actually did visit that exhibit on torture devices. Its a traveling exhibition and a real minder-binder. The collection is extraordinarily complete and authentic, making viewing particularly uncomfortable knowing that this stuff was actually used on someone. The sheer volume and range of implements is a testament to the perversity that some humans are willing to engage in. All of the standard mechanizations are represented, as well as many, many other devices that are well beyond most people's imaginations. All in all, a very powerful show. Highly recommended if it comes to a city near you.

Thanks so much for the kind words, and congrats on being a featured artist this week. Your 'gallery' looks great :) I am especially fond of the Temptation ring.

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, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
