Re-construction Time Again

What a few weeks! Ever since Madelyn Smoak reminded me that some years ago - 2009 - I had started to make a set of Chimæric cutlery, I've been working furiously to finish all the work which, over the years, has been started and left incomplete. I am determined that there will be no unfinished work by Christmas!



There were a few projects which I knew about, having put them aside to work on commissions or exhibition work…

How traffic pirates skim revenue from your Etsy shop

You may have heard all the ruckus about Pinterest of late and wondered, why is this such a big deal? It looks like this is just a successful social networking site that is driving lots of traffic to my Etsy shop.  Well…not exactly.   Read on and I’ll explain how sites like Pinterest really make money.  Note: I am using Pinterest as just one example of a type of website/business model that is growing rapidly.

 

Pinterest makes money by directing traffic to websites who agree to…

Online Updates

As a bit of a precursor to an online exhibition I'm organising on Crafthaus about contemporary craft in Scotland, glass-artist Jeff Zimmer, an American who is representing Scotland at SOFA, has just posted images of the works he is exhibiting there. Hauntingly beautiful.

Waiting, waiting...

It's been a week where I've not been able to proceed as I am waiting for other people to do things, thus Fashion:Victim is waiting for a piece of jet to be carved and Future Legend is waiting for some fresh acrylic enamels to be delivered. Instead of working on those, I've spent the last few days dusting off half-completed projects and finishing them, largely to restock my Etsy shop.



Some of the completed pieces:

Tube cutting

It struck me today that I have been using a tip bench trick for ages now which I have selfishly not shared with anyone, not out of malice or self-interest, but simply because I use it so very regularly that it never entered my head until one of the students mentioned today how unusual it was. The idea originally came from another one of my students who asked me why there are no tube cutters for jewellery of the sort plumbers use to cut pipes. Her partner is a plumber and he gave me a…

Silver Cats Save Cats

The OSPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) had plans to euthanize 350 animals, but only 99 have been put down due to 'combined voices of animal welfare advocates' (from the Toronto Humane Society Article), and many people are raising money, and there is even a…

Full Time Artist

Free at Last!



I just finished my Masters in the UK and have returned to Canada and I couldn't be happier! Not that I didn't love my Masters experience but working on my art and jewellery full time outside of school is exquisite!



I will be infusing plenty of energy into my online presence in the coming year so stay adrift with all the changes to my Crafthaus page and look for upcoming links to see more into my craft including my drawings, screen printing, wax carving,… Continue

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
