Curate's Egg

Strange day today: some things good, some bad, "good, in parts"!


Bad: my microwelder (hydro-flame) broke down; someone stole my tube-cutter; one of the students has hacked a coil of wire into multiple lengths as they were too lazy to look for the end.


Good: I finished a bangle -




Made from iron nail, silver,…

Long Weekend

Just back from a long and relaxing weekend in Brighton with a brief sojourn to London, primarily to see the David Watkins exhibition at the V&A.
The Watkins exhibition was a touch disappointing as there wasn't very much in it, perhaps 20 - 30 pieces, all jewellery but the Silver Gallery and the jewellery collection at the V&A never fails to please.


Some photographs from this visit:…

Interview with me in SO Rhode Island Magazine

I was recently interviewed for what I thought was going to be a short side-bar piece about myself and my role as Gallery Director at Hera Gallery... However, when I picked up the latest issue of SO Rhode Island Magazine, a local Arts & Entertainment Monthly, I was surprised to see a full page portrait of myself smiling (awkwardly) back at me.


Despite the intimidating full…

Providence: The Artists' Nest

There's a really interesting article in this issue of Art New England about the Providence art scene written by Doug Norris. Doug is a wonderfully observant art writer who primarily reviews for the South County Independent, and freelances for national publications as well. Considering that I live… Continue

Completed - Trouble With Lichen

Finally finished my ring, "Trouble With Lichen", made from the corroded push-rods of a Ford Fairlane, found in a river at Campo Ligure, Italy. It is not a typical piece. I think that this is because I did almost no preparatory drawings for it and it came almost directly from the form of the material and the stones chosen for it.




The cups are set with tsavorite and…

Jewelry finds in Edinburgh

Trouble With Lichen...

A while back, a friend of mine in Italy found an old car engine in a river. It had been there some time and was very corroded:




He sent me these bits from it:

New cufflinks

Completed a trio of cufflinks today. These are a bit of a "bread and butter" line for me and one of the few things I get to make fairly regularly.






The rigid "bean" backs are really easy to get in and out of shirts and don't break. Set with a red zircon, chrome green tourmaline and blue topaz. The nuts and bolt-heads were all found…
