Metalsmith Benchtalk is hosted by Jay Whaley owner of Whaley Studios and co-hosted and technically produced by Aly Kendrick. Whaley Studios is all things jewelry and the art of metalsmithing. This is and has been a passion of Jay's for some time- he served as the head jewelery instructor at the University of California, San Diego, Crafts Center for over two decades and is also the owner/operator of Whaley Studios in the Hillcrest District of San Diego, and the inventor of many fine jewelry making tools. During our program, our intention is to feature artists in the craft and discuss, educate, problem solve and entertain callers while we consider topics of interest in the metalsmithing and jewelry making trades.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, January 8th, 2015 at 3:00 PDT/ 6:00 EDT is New Zealand jeweler and taxidermist Julia deVille. We invite you to participate in this live interview by logging onto the char-room or sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. About Julia: Arriving in Australia from New Zealand on the cusp of adulthood, deVille trained as a jeweller and learned further crafting skills studying shoe design before her long hunt for a taxidermy mentorship was successful. Driven by a strong commitment to animal rights, deVille's sculptural assemblages belie the heroic, trophy-hunting culture associated with mounting dead animals. In a form of gentle protest she combines precious gems and metals with antique ‘ready-mades' to challenge our disregard for and consumption of both wild and domesticated fauna. Commissioned by Hobart's MONA to create a permanent installation in 2011, deVille also won the City of Hobart Art Prize in 2012. She has taken out the People's Choice Award in the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize twice, and in 2006 her work was included in the MCA's important Primavera survey exhibition. deVille's work was acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria in 2012. She exhibits regularly in Australia and overseas. Other Accounts instagram.com/juliadeville(Instagram) Website www.discemori.com
