My guest this Thursday, July 26th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is David LaPlantz (aka D. D. Deco), an active, producing jeweler and metalsmith. He flirts back and forth between jewelry and social commentary sculpture.
About: David LaPlantz is included in Who’s Who in American Art and Who’s Who in the West and was named Humboldt State University’s “Outstanding Professor” in 1981. He received a Fulbright Grant in 1985 to travel throughout New Zealand to conduct master jewelry workshops, and received the Humboldt State University “Scholar of the Year” Award in 1994.
From 1967 through 2002, LaPlantz led an energetic dual life as both a full time jewelry and metalsmithing teacher and full time studio artist. Balancing his precious time between the two, he carved out a career comprised of imparting knowledge and creating art jewelry and sculpture, while trying to retain his sanity. LaPlantz is currently a full time studio artist living on the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
LaPlantz has always been an active, productive jeweler and metalsmith. His most recent jewelry involves the use of Vegetable Ivory (tagua nut) and /or industrially painted aluminum, which he engraves, stacks and cold connects together. LaPlantz’s sculptural pieces visually explore more political and philosophical topics such as blacklisting in the entertainment industry, payola scandals in the music industry and in radio, along with the “spoken word” as demonstrated in his ‘Art Microphones.’

Build Your Creative Confidence: Why We All Need More Creative Play in Our Lives with Dr. Minette Riordan
Dr. Minette Riordan is an author, speaker and creativity coach. Minette’s passion for connecting people to each self and each other is deeply rooted in her belief that it is our connection to spirit, to self and to others that is the foundation of true happiness.
In the past few years there has been a surge in books, articles, studies, Ted talks and online courses related to creativity. Multiple studies and statistics are showing that creativity is the core of success, citing the examples of great minds like Einstein and Edison, and that it’s time to engage our population in more creative play in order to spark innovation, inspiration and imagination.
What Dr. Riordan is discovering in her work with individuals is that adults of all ages are longing for more creative play and more meaningful ways to express their creative spirit. They want to set aside the judgments of their youth and the misconceived definition of “Art” in order to create powerful connections and cultivate a playful attitude towards making art.
Dr. Riordan will be discussed:
How to build creative confidence.
How creative play can alleviate stress.
How activities like journaling, coloring and painting allow open us to see new possibilities in other areas of our life.
How to get started (ideas, a few fun supplies and a prompt or two.)
