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.

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.
