Edouard Martinet - Insectophile

When Edouard Martinet was 10, one of his teachers introduced his pupils to insects, but in a rather obsessive way. Subliminally, the fascination sunk in to the young French boy. Fast-forward 40 years, and Martinet has become the art world's virtuoso insectophile, transforming bits and…

Scottish Energy

I don't know what has happened over the last few months but there seems to be an unstoppable maelstrom of creative energy centred over Scotland. Perhaps it is the fact that I've become more active in the creative culture around me but I feel that there is something amazing brewing here and I am not exactly sure what it is. Everywhere I go, I'm surrounded by people who are not only sparking with ideas but who spark ideas in me. There is a creative synergy which is driving everyone to new…

In a time when yesterday is so often considered "old hat", it is wonderful to know that merry renk lived long enough to see her jewelry from mid-20th century recognized in major museum exhibitions.…

Make Your Own Metal Clay Punches (4PAM_12)



Ever find yourself with in the middle of a metal clay project and couldn't locate a punch or clay cutter in the right size or shape? I've been experimenting with  "granulation" or "pebbling" in metal clay lately, and the one thing that became apparent was the need to come up with some punches/cutters in unique shapes and sizes. As you can see in the piece "Sophia," that along with the circular granulation, there is also a tear…

Would you like to take a survey?

Hellooooo Fellow Makers!

I'm trying to get some answers, and you can help.  At some point in our career, we all go to a conference, fair, or symposium.  There are a lot of different reasons why we choose to go to an event, and a lot of reasons why we don't! 

Regardless of your medium, and regardless of what you attend (or don't attend), I'd really appreciate hearing from you!  I'm part of a group that's working on evaluating the content, format, and structure of…

In a state of jazz

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis  (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world. I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
