    Metalsmith Benchtalk: Past Favorites with Enamel Jewelry Artist Michael Romanik

    in Art

    This Thursday, May 7th, 2015  at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk we'll go back into the archives for a Past Favorites epiosde with artist Michael Romanik. Since 1992, Michael has created production, 'limit-production' and one-of-a-kind cloisonne' enamel jewelry. 


     


    About: As a student studying enameling in art school, I became intrigued with the technique of cloisonne', creating linear designs and images with flat wire embedded between layers of colored granular glass. This was my first introduction to enameling. In my pursuit to learn more about this medium and wanting to perfect my skills with it, I spent many years researching and experimenting with this art form.


     


    Some early inspiration for my work was derived from my interest in the objects and images of ancient cultures: the grandeur of ancient Egypt, the colorful painted relief carvings on Mayan architecture, the symbols of the Celts. Recent inspiration comes from nature: the vibrant plumage of a songbird, the delicate markings of a butterfly wing, the gentle curve of a small branch. A new interest is the repetitive geometric patterns and motifs of Asian and Indian textiles.


     


    I was born in 1966 and raised in the Cleveland OH area.  My home and studio are in East Cleveland.  I am a 1989 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA Degree in Drawing and minors in both Printmaking and Glass.  I am a recipient of a 2011 Creative Workforce Fellowship, generously funded by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, The Community Partnership for Arts and Culture, and the residents of Cuyahoga County OH

    The Gettin It In Show: Whats the difference between a Blackman and a Ni**a

    in Radio

    Contrary to what many may think, there is a difference
    between Black people and niggas. Define the Black Man? Define a Nigga? Was one once the other if so how and why? Please review the list below I gathered from a website called Assata Shakur Forums. What are your thoughts? Does it appear to be true? Why are we battling with ourselves as a people? As awakened individuals should we turn our backs on our bruthas and sistas that claim to be niggas?

    Black people spend thousands of dollars on higher education and see the value of owning real estate.
    Niggas spend thousands of dollars on ''getting high" and are concerned only with keeping' it real.

    When Black people have children, they try to get better paying jobs to make
    sure they can support their child... 
    When niggas have children; they change jobs to avoid paying child support.


    When Black people have children, they invest in college plans, piano lessons and braces...
    When niggas have children they invest in designer clothes, platinum jewelry and mini-Air Jordans

    Black people watch out for their neighbors and understand the importance of strong neighborhoods...
    Niggas watch their neighbors, and look for an opportunity to take advantage of their weaknesses.

    Black people appreciate the sacrifices made for them by, their families to help them get ahead in life...
    Niggas will sacrifice their Families and steal from them in order to get their next high. 

    Black people appreciate expensive jewelry designer clothes and nice cars but realize that they don't make the person.... 
    Niggas define themselves by their designer clothes platinum jewelry and nice cars.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with San Francisco Jewelry Artist Sarah Graham

    in Art

     


    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchalk on Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST is San Fancisco jewerly artist, Sarah Graham. 


    Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom or by sending a message to Whaley Studio's via Facebook Instgram or Twitter. 


    About Sarah:


    By incorporating innovative materials with her exceptional design sense, Sarah Graham creates jewelry that is unlike anything else; organic, textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine, yet substantial; unique, yet universal in its appeal. The natural inspiration behind the jewelry – whether cast directly from Jacaranda Pods and decayed wood or rendered in wax from a microscopic view of single cell marine organisms – gives her designs a texture and feel that makes them infinitely wearable. But it is the matte black finish of oxidized cobalt chrome juxtaposed with 18k yellow, rose and white gold, set with colored diamonds, that is its’ most eye-catching element.


    Sarah’s statement making jewelry is exciting and elegant with a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio every year. This, along with Sarah’s unique combination of business and retail experience, traveling, a rigorous apprenticeship and her dedication to providing amazing customer service to her clients, ensure many more years of success for Sarah Graham Metalsmithing.


    Sarah is currently vice president of the American Jewelry Design Council. She currently resides in San Francisco , CA  and works with a staff of seven at her Dog Patch neighborhood studio.
