The piece "Rectified" was originally completed in 2015, and at the time, it represented the resolution of a number of visual, conceptual, and technical considerations that had surrounded my work and specifically my small cast-bronze sculptural units since graduate school. While the solution of the rock form and wooden base as the appropriate way to display the tension and sense of abstracted industrial decay of the bronze unit was a significant step in the right direction at the time, I…Continue

Something a little different this week - A Trio of Mosaic Artists - 3 Approaches to the Medium
The art of mosaics is often overlooked and stereotyped as a “hobby craft.” However, if you dive headlong into the world of contemporary mosaic art, you’ll be amazed by what’s out there. The colors, compositions, subject matter,…

So, we all know - I assume my readers to be fellow Liberal Elite snowflakes, of course - that Trump is a nightmare.
Unfortunately, I was 'triggered' this week, even within my 'safe space' of bed. Frankly, it is my own fault: I've been watching the fantastic Ridley Scott version of Philip K. Dick's "The…

Not having posted for four weeks, you'd be forgiven for thinking I'd dropped off the face of the earth, but I was just having an extended Christmas holiday and settling back into work again. I didn't feel inclined to do a retrospective of the year gone by and I've a horrible feeling that next Christmas I may not feel like doing a retrospective then. In short, I'm somewhat lacking in global optimism just now.
That as may be, things here are going along as normal.
In the coming week is the start of my 6th semester in college.
I hope to make tons of art and plenty of jewelry.
With a new vision for my work, a sharp focus on conceptuality pertaining specifically to antitheism and other social beliefs, I hope you all find this new work interesting.
Many of these pieces will be on display at many venues, including the SNAG conference in New Orleans.
So much art, so little time.

In April 2013, an unexpected chain of events led Craig to buy the Futuro…Continue
