You Are (the) Here: Origin Story

I am about to expand upon a new series of artworks that explore the cultural construction of identity through personal adornment. It will result in four wearable metal objects and related imagery and will be completed during my development leave this fall. This series, You Are (the) Here, is inspired by the historic relationship between body adornment, the idealized self and the souvenir that has been indicated by such things as pilgrimage badges of the middle ages, neoclassical…

Inspiration of Eye, Ear & Fist



Eye, Ear & Fist is also a political piece but more whimsical with introduction of vibrant colors. This piece is a set of three enameled pins. This project’s theme was “Boundary” and I was inspired by the Japanese parable, "See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil."…

Etruscan Chain / Bolo



This Etruscan piece project was very fun and meditative. Weaving each fine silver wires, stretching them and constructing was very satisfying. The angular main body is hollow fabricated and is movable as bolo tie/necklace. On the center I have …

You Are (the) Here: Dresden

Of the three cities I have visited for the You Are (the) Here project thus far, Dresden was the hardest one in which to find a representative subject. This was partly due to the close proximity of my hotel to most of the sites I was interested in seeing, which resulted in a reduced scope of experience. The Green Vault, New Green Vault and Armory were within a block of each other and flanked by other delightful collections of decorative arts. The fact that Dresden was nearly destroyed…

The growing importance of non-traditional venues to the arts audience

Theaters, concert halls, and museums are conducive to certain kinds of exchanges between art and people. These are, and will always be, critically important spaces for public participation in the arts. But meaningful exchange occurs with greater frequency in many other settings, from old breweries to planetariums, abandoned subway platforms, barges, cinemas, and community bookstores. With the proliferation of virtual spaces for arts programs, it seems now that all the world's a stage.…

Who is 'it' for craft advertising?

Ad campaigns sometimes employ well-known personalities from the sports or entertainment world or they show an unknown actor with unique characteristics to make them stand out in one way or another.

If there was a major ad campaign for craft as a whole, which celebrity would be a good spokesperson for craft and why would he/she make sense for 'the cause'? Are there celebrities who have ties to craft? What characteristics would that personality have to lend to "craft" in order for this to… Continue

Unjustifiably overlooked...

Some months ago I was contacted by Sia Corrina, the editor of a free, online magazine entitled "Serendipity" and asked if I would contribute to her "Apocalyptic Art" edition, Winter 2011. Of course, I agreed, but somewhere along the line then forgot that the article had been written, that the magazine was published and that I had work in it, along with two other Crafthaus artists, Francesca Gabrielli and…
