Join us next Saturday, April 12th for a new exhibit: CONSIDERING THE KYLIX
Opening reception 5-7pm with a Curator's Talk at 5:30pm
https://www.facebook.com/events/728964210481009/?ref=5&source=3...


An invitational exhibition curated by Maleyne Syracuse. Contemporary craft artists reinterpret this form in their own style and materials.

The kylix, the original ceremonial wine cup, first appeared as early as 900 BCE in ancient Greece. The word “chalice,” the term used for the sacred ceremonial wine cup in Christian ecclesiastical services, is derived, via the Latin “calix,” from the Greek “kylix.”

The kylix has appeared from time to time over the centuries, as artisans have recreated or reinterpreted the form using materials, processes, and aesthetics suited to their time.

We invite the public to come and learn more about the fascinating history of this iconic object and see the varied interpretations that have resulted from this challenge.

This exhibition will be on view during our Annual Studio Open House & Bevans Day Event.

This is the piece I made for this show. Beer Bong Kylix.
Venturing out of my metal medium into cast glass.

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
