MAD had an open studio today, June 25: Peters Valley presents Harold O'Connor.
To be honest I haven't gone to many of MAD's offerings to it's members or the public. Most just didn't grab me, and to get me to go to anything you have to really grab me. I mean physically. With hands and arms and all the rest that go along with kidnapping someone for their own good.
This time it was quite different. I actually wanted to go.
I admire Harold O'Connor's work very much.… Continue

Metalsmithing Painter / Paintersmithing Metal
here is a detail image of the torch fired disc enamel earrings that I completed today and will soon be posting to my shop. It's interesting to me that I have found ways to incorporate my painting and color into my metalsmithing, considering that I started out my art career as a painter!

Are your images working for you?

I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend a workshop at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, taught by Marlene True. I just want to say how wonderful it was and what a gem Marlene is. The workshop was on Champleve enameling. I loved it and Marlene did such a great job teaching us. I left there confident that I can be good at Champleve Marlene will be back at SIUE teaching a workshop for the Society for Midwest Metalsmiths on working with tin. I am very excited about that. It is… Continue
