On the 12th of February I spent the day flying to Cleveland, Ohio. My first trip to what was, at the time, a very snow-bound state. There I met up with…

and speaking of enamel, as I was earlier this week…

I’ve made a steel sandwich.

I have finally applied some of my collected rust to some white enamel. The substrate is from a steel can (Ok, you got me, it was a can that held a whiskey bottle…) that I sandblasted, so the metal is not perfectly flat.…

String Theory

01 String

A week or so ago I had 10 different types of string lined up for a piece I’m working on. It doesn’t need 10 types of string, but I didn’t feel that the finished work I was trying create resonated with any one of them. I had already discounted some satiny cord, the usual pearl-silk that you can get at most jewellery suppliers as well as the nylon…

Metalsmith Magazine

I can't believe that I forgot to mention this!

The post title pretty much says it all. In the just-released issue of Metalsmith magazine, Sharon Massey has written a review of my portion of the Bridge 12 exhibition that took place at the Society of Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh from last November to this March. Needless to say, I’m well chuffed.…

So, back to Melbourne in July…

Whoa, was it back in August that I put out my last In Melbourne post? I promised back then to fill you in on what happened at the Seams Seems symposium, which I will now attempt to finish up.

On Friday the 19th of July, a blustery and rainy day in Melbourne, a committed group of art-jewellery fanciers headed out to the Monash Art Design and…

Modding

Nope, not the subculture that rose to prominence in London in the swinging 60′s, I’m afraid. Not quite (but at least a little closer to) case modding practiced by our brethren, the computer geeks. What I’m talking about is modding tools.

You know, how you adapt certain tools make your progress quicker, or perhaps alter their use somewhat to suit your…

Well, my final day in Pittsburgh last month was the day of the Out of Hand show at SCC. I got to have some rest time in the morning after the previous day’s efforts.

Time for a new subject... Oh wait, no, more Pittsburgh!

So while I was in Pittsburgh I spent part of Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday teaching a group of seniors at a local high-school the basics of working with recycled materials, so that each could make a small wearable pendant. I don’t have images of those guys, but I hope to have images of their works to share with you at some stage.

What I do have however is an image of what I made on Wednesday before class, after an overnight dumping of 5 inches of snow. It’s…

Pittsburgh… Interrupted

Now, before I interrupted myself with the last post, I was reminiscing about my trip to Pittsburgh last month. Where was I?

Ahh, yes. Now as I recall… I never actually put up images of the *actual exhibition*. I know, installation shots of jewellery are always a little anaemic looking, but humour me here, ok? These are images of The Bridge 12 exhibition at …
