Dalton M. Ghetti - Sculptures in Pencil

Ah, pencils. At my house, I buy them in bulk for the kids to use for school and, apparently, for the dog to chew on. Though I keep buying huge quantities what seems to be every other week, none of them is ever in reach when I need to actually write something down. They have a habit of magically…

Maximo Riera: Bespoke Furniture

I'm alarmed by the established rules, normality and standards which produce the mediocrity so often mistaken for success in our society. We are not the ones who decide whether this or that is good, beautiful, bad or ugly, but rather these decisions are forced upon us through a value system…

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
