Happy Happy Days : First solo show at Japan !

This is most luckiest and beautiful thing happening soon.
The gallery "Tsuibu" let me have two weeks solo show from April 7th ~ 19th.
The tricky part is that Tsuibu gallery is in Kyoto, Japan.

I know, I know.
It is only 14 hours by airplane from the U.S. Piece of cake to stop by, right?
I do want you to have a post card, so feel free to ask me to send you hundreds of postcards!

500 Enameled Objects

One of my pieces is in the new Lark book on enamel, so I received my complimentary copy a few days ago. It is just as nice as the other books in this series. I already have my "faves" and am sure I will have even more as I page through again. Sarah Perkins has selected an amazing body of pieces in a wide range of styles - the images are wonderful and inspire me to get back to work... Thanks to all involved!

Website

Finally...well, almost. The website is a work in progress, but the most recent work is up!
Somehow I always neglect to photograph each piece properly. So not all of the work is there, but a pretty good representation anyhow.
Could it be that I am working madly to the wire??? I KNOW I am not the only one guilty of this.

Baltimore ACC show

Well, another ACC show is behind me and this one was much better than I anticipated. I attribute it to having mostly new designs, some new display elements, and good help in my booth. It's nice to know that people were actually out there shopping.

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.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.

The radio show will be LIVE on air September 25, 2014 @ 6PM EST / 3 PM Pacific.
