PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
UPDATE: Comments from Lee Marshall, designer of the Knew Concept Saw
(Same comments as posted on "Thinking out Loud" but also put here for completeness.)
I emailed Lee with some of the comments I've received on here, on Flickr and on my Blogs and he sent me back a very detailed and thoughtful reply which I quote here with permission.
Spares are available of course. It simply has not come up as yet, so I haven't crossed that bridge. I will send…

This piece, entitled Red Radial Pattern Set (consists of a pin and brooch) is actually the back half of the tin from whence came the works Henri Tin Pin, and Henri Tin Brooch. This one was made as one of the last few works that rounded out my master of fine arts examination exhibition, which was…Continue

I managed to get a fair amount done today. Nothing too complex, hence the blog post here rather than as a point of technical discussion! The main box is finished and I fitted the inner "scrim" lid which hides the narrative of the contents:

Congratulations to another SMM member being a featured artist on CraftHaus. Way to go Noel Liecht!
We have such a great group of artists in our organization.
Great general meeting today. Big crowd showed up and we had about 5 new members sign up today. Thanks to Sherri Jaudes for showing us how she makes a spiculum. She makes it look so easy to get that seam straight and fitted together perfectly, even when…Continue

I have now almost finished the box which is the pendant element of "Cold Genius". As the inspiration for the piece was an aria from an opera, it was my intention to make it in the form of a theatre, which is what I think I've achieved...

At last the festive season is behind me and I managed to get back to the bench today.

Although it is a bit fiddly to get blades into, it is an amazing tool: from the second I started to cut with it, I knew that I would not be going back to my old, springy iron frame.

I am most likely going to apply to the ARTIST PROJECT in NYC this year. Does anyone out there have thoughts on the show? ALSO -- I'd love to hear feedback on ONE OF A KIND in NYC this past year.

It's the last day of 2010, and I'm trying to stay optimistic as the next year lumbers in.
I've been trying to make a go at this working artist thing since I finished my degree in 2008, and although I haven't figured out how to survive, I haven't failed yet either. For the record…
