Badges Buttons Waistcoats + Vests - part II

As promised earlier, myself and partner and Turbo-Nerd hit San Francisco on Friday afternoon just gone for the opening of the B&B, W&V exhibition at Velvet da Vinci gallery.

It's a great show, the works are by turn interesting, punchy, engaging, beautiful and thought provoking, and the installation is a credit to Mike, Elizabeth, the specially created hangers (by Tom) and the gallery. It's a wonderful space, huuuge in jewellery terms (or is that just in Australian terms?), and with that allows sensitive display of all types of works in its diverse yet cohesively presented array of cabinets.

It was great to catch both Mike and Elizabeth again after our rendezvous at Touchstone last month for the Crafthaus Think Tank, and San Francisco really turned on the charm for my first visit.

If you're on the facebook you can like some more images here, or follow Elizabeth and Mike on the twitteh.

"Narrative can have a very wide definition.  I think my work is narrative in that I try to express some form of communication with my clay sculptures.  How can I get my work in the January show?Cheers, Tom www.tomsupensky.com"

"Superb collection! Can't wait for part 2.  All my work is "narrative" and I tend to like work by other makers which is also narrative. "

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!
