Our guest on Thursday, August 14th at 3:00 pm PST on Metalsmith Benchtalk is Cat Bates!
Participate by joining us in the chatroom!
Cat spent his early childhood, and summers through grade school, on Monhegan Island off of the Maine coast. He remains strongly influenced by the island's nautical history, rugged landscape, and the resourcefulness and hard work that one needs to live there year-round.
He began studying metalsmithing 14 years ago. He started working as a professional jeweler in 2004, and graduated from Maine College of Art in 2009 with a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. He have received scholarships to study at Penland School of Crafts, Peters Valley, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and has tught workshops on basic metalsmithing, sand casting, and decorative sailor knotting. In 2012 he produced his first line of production jewelry, under the title Barbarian Enterprises.
He employs a variety of techniques in the design and manufacture of his work, from sand casting to sailor knotting, 3-d modeling to forging.He utilizes the skills of other professionals when economically and/or conceptually appropriate, and in these instances give credit in the product description.He believes that the method used to produce a piece of jewelry (or any object) resonates within it, even if it is not obvious to a casual observer.

Death has hit me hard. I have skirted around it for the majority of my life. My Dad and Step-Mom have both passed but I was separated from them at their passing and I had mourned their loss for a few years prior to their deaths. With the death of my daughter, I also knew beforehand and I mourned and I tried to change the course of events that would take her or give her knowledge before she left that would put her mind and heart at ease but it was not meant to be.
I want to speak of a time recorded in the New Testament when Christ mourned the loss of John the Baptist. We will be reviewing Matthew 14.
Amy Beth welcomes Kate Sweeney, author of American Afterlife: Encounters in the Customs of Mourning Having embarked on a quest spent in the trenches with experts from funeral directors to obit writers, Kate, who is also a writer for Georgia Public Radio, explores the rites, rituals and refections associated with death and mourning in America.
And the usuals: the free-flow pop culture convo, the mailbag and Inspiration to Action success stories.

GD celebrates 200 successful broadcast episodes on #BlogTalkRadio
(S5) Street Player on A Touch of Grace Presents....
Marc Gordon the remaining member of the R&B Group Levert steps into the virtual lounge to discuss music and mourning with GD and his 40K plus audience. It will be a candid discussion told as only the final soilder of a successful recording group could tell, because he lived it!
R&B legend Marc Gordon’s career and life are at a pivotal turning point. As the surviving founding member of hit-making trio LeVert, the Ohio native is dedicated to extending the legacy he created with late members Sean and Gerald Levert (sons of The O’Jays’ Eddie Levert). He hopes to do so with a new group project appropriately titled LeVert II. But this is no spin-off; it’s more a continuation.
While the multi-time Grammy and Soul Train Award-winning writer/producer/singer is looking forward to the professional challenges of his future, Gordon remains true to a wall of tradition he helped build. Getting over the loss of his two closest friends is a daunting obstacle he has yet to overcome...
Let's talk about jewelry! It's summer, and the heat is already rising in Texas. Summer makes me think of simple clothing that has vibrant color, but I want nothing to do with any clothing that could add to the temperature. Today we're talking about summer trends and how to dress up a simple summer look with some great jewelry.
This Thursday, May 22nd at 3 p.m. PDT, we'll be going back into the MetalSmith BenchTalk archives. We'll be re-airing one of our favoite chats with jewelry and hollowware designer and maker Cynthia Eid.
About: Cynthia Eid's hammered metalwork has won awards for creativity and design, featured in many publications, and exhibited extensively. Eid's sculptural jewelry and hollowware is primarily done in Argentium Silver and formed through the creative use of hammers and/or a hydraulic press. Currently an independent metalsmith and educator, she is a Jeweler and Silversmith based in Massachusetts USA, teaching weekly classes at Metalwerx and the De Cordova Museum School, and workshops and short courses all over the USA. Previously, she has worked as a designer/maker in goldsmith galleries, and as modelmaker/supervisor in a gold jewelry factory. Cynthia earned her Master of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing and Jewellery Design from Indiana University in 1980 and has a B.S. in Art Education.
The paradox that “soft”, fluid-looking metal has evolved from flat, stiff rectangles though force, determination, and tenacity enchants me. I am entranced by the metal’s progressive transformation -- through hammering, persuasion, and struggle --- from a lifeless plane of metal toward an object of vibrancy, unity and fluidity.
Experimentation, serendipity, a sense of play, and the subconscious mind determine the forms of my work. The forms have their roots in my gardens, and my meanderings through the woods and along the water’s edge. In my work, the allusions to nature are intentionally ambiguous, to encourage interactive response and contemplation by the viewer.
