"Scotland the What?" and "Apocalypse Cow"

I've been a bit distracted by family matters over the last two weeks and haven't really been doing very much of note, though unfortunately, I have had to cancel the "Scotland the What?" exhibition on Crafthaus, scheduled for the end of this month. Both Jeff Zimmer and myself have independently suffered a personal loss at the same time and have not managed to collate the show at all. The plus side of this, however, is that Brigitte has re-scheduled for October 2013 and this gives us the chance to contact some makers whom we really, really wanted in the show...

Distractions like this have been keeping me from the bench, though I did get started on
"Future Legend" again today as I realised that I have to have it finished
and photographed by 1st June! (And I'm not going to be here for five days next week, dealing with the aforementioned personal matters.)

Future Legend (WIP) 10

Yesterday, I made a bulk run of "Werewolf Protectors", silver and spinel-tipped found brass bullet casings. I used one before on "The Deerhunter":

The Deerhunter - 1


but now have made the rest into inexpensive "diffusion" pieces for my
Etsy shop.

Personal Werewolf Protection - 1



Other news! My good friend, Michael Logan has had his first book published:

Thanks for the kind comments and thoughts. I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to them.

Wishing you all the best and the strength to get through your loss. I follow you religously and your work inspires me tremendously. If you are ever in NYC I would love to take you to lunch and pick your brain.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Dauvit. I look forward to the exhibition next year. xxoo

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!
