Darcy Miro Exhibition Opens on Saturday 5th May

The materials she uses reflect the embodiment of her work: strong, bold, and organic. Her sculptural background is evident as the artist's jewelry takes on the role of wearable art.

We hope you can join us on…

Wot, No Iron?

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been really busy with family matters as well as learning to use the new mill and the associated software, so I've not really had a chance to make any of my usual work. I've been forced to make quick projects and have also been using the products of the mill as it is always so much more encouraging and interesting to be teaching oneself something with a real goal at the end.

As a result of this, I've been working largely in more conventional…

Follow Your Own Path -- Be Resilient, Postive, and Passionate

I was reading an article about "Pinterest's Ben Silbermann to 'Treps: Make Something Beautiful" on Entrepreneur.com. Though the article lists three pieces of advice for entrepreneurs, it struck a cord in me. A resounding echo that could be solid advice for artists and makers. Each one builds on the other.…

Not About Work...

My colleague is off on paternity leave just now, leaving me holding the fort with part-time and temporary staff and my excellent technician, Fiona. A fault in the fire-alarm system in the building means that I can't cast anything, and I've not had time to work at the bench. Additionally, I just spent two weeks on holiday, so haven't much to report other than that I sent all my work off to the gallery at Cwmbran in Wales today,…

Make Your Own Metal Clay Punches (4PAM_12)



Ever find yourself with in the middle of a metal clay project and couldn't locate a punch or clay cutter in the right size or shape? I've been experimenting with  "granulation" or "pebbling" in metal clay lately, and the one thing that became apparent was the need to come up with some punches/cutters in unique shapes and sizes. As you can see in the piece "Sophia," that along with the circular granulation, there is also a tear…

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
