Despite the best intentions of the last post, I've not posted anything for a week as I've been embarking on a commission from a customer who does not want any of the details published online until she has received the piece.
Since I last wrote, I've been asked to have a solo showcase at the Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre in Wales. I've exhibited there before - in their Re:Collect show in 2009, so it is nice to be invited back to exhibit a small collection of new works. This…Continue

Gallery Loupe welcomes the work of Brazilian artist Cristina Dias. Using silicon to mimic the "sparkle of jewels", she challenges the traditional notion of value by creating a "preciousness" of her own.

This semester I am taking an independent study which has allowed me to further explore the medium of enamel. I have been fascinated and inspired by really beautiful drawn and painted images on enamel so I thought I would give it a try. This is just a work in progress but I am really loving the medium I am working with. I would also love some feedback on the piece itself or even tips when working with watercolor enamel.…Continue

Craft practices are at once defined and restrained by their connections to tradition. Viewing woodworking in the context of objects made with wood; housing, particularly stick frame construction, emerges as possibly the most widespread use of the material throughout the modern world. Utilizing these techniques in a studio based practice, it is my hope to further the conversation on how notions of craft fit into the modern world.Continue

We're seeing more and more jewelry makers who are looking for alternative materials to help cut costs. There seems to be a trend toward "hardware store jewelry" -- jewelry made from bits and pieces that you can find at such non-traditional jewelry supply stores as ACE, TrueValue, Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
