While posting about Taboo Studio yesterday, I realized I have yet to post about the work of Donna D'Aquino. I've admired Donna's work for a while now (especially her steel wire and plasti-dip pieces) so I wanted to share a few more images here. You can see more of Donna's work on her website.

Taboo Studio is a San Diego gallery featuring art jewelry and metalwork. Their website includes an artist list and numerous images. You can also find an archive of past exhibitions and articles about some of the artists they represent.

Just in case you haven't seen it, SNAG (the Society of North American Goldsmiths) has re-done their website. Its got all sorts of information, and a new members only section, which will soon have discussion boards (a welcome addition). Be sure to check it out (and register for the conference in Memphis - the deadline is fast approaching!)
And speaking of SNAG, keep your eyes open for an opinion piece about blogging in the Fall issue of Metalsmith!

I'm off to Ohio tomorrow morning to check out the MFA thesis exhibition of Corey Ackelmire. Corey's a grad school classmate of mine who makes pieces exploring use, function, and material culture. You can check out more of Corey's work on her website and flickr site.

I have a real appreciation for artists who not only make jewelry, but also sculpture, installations, furniture, etc. So, I was thrilled to learn about the work of Gitte Nygaard. These images are just a small sampling of the work. Be sure to check Gitte's website to see more. (via The Carrotbox)

The Smithsonian Craft Show is fast approaching (April 19-22), so I thought I'd showcase a few of the artists over the next week or so. If you're in the DC area that weekend, its worth a trip. But if you can't make the show, the website is loaded with artist images.

Emily Watson's website (and work) have a fun playful feel. Emily's work ranges from jewelry to wall pieces to installations (such as "organs of truth, organs of meaning" the enameled piece shown below). You can also shop Emily's production jewelry line right here.
