Metalsmith Benchtalk is hosted by Master Goldsmith Jay Whaley, owner of Whaley Studios, and co-hosted and technically produced by his student of 2 years, Ashley Elizabeth Kendrick, (Aly). Whaley Studios is all things jewelry and the art of metalsmithing. Teaching 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 metalsmithing tools. "Jay is willing to tackle challenging issues within the craft community and invite a wide range of personalities. There is nothing else like it!" - Harriete Estel Berman 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

My Guest this Thursday, August 6th, 2015 at 3 p.m. PDT/6EDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is metalsmith, artist, and educator Frankie Flood. About: Frankie Flood is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where he teaches in Foundations and is currently co-area head in Jewelry & Metalsmithing at UWM. Flood is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he received his Master of Fine Art degree in Metalsmithing. Flood utilizes the industrial processes of machining, stamping, anodizing, and powder coating to create one of a kind functional objects. His interest in machines and tools and the influence of his working class upbringing is a source of inspiration. Flood's work investigates one of a kind objects and their role in a world based on mechanical reproduction. Recent National and International Juried Shows in which his creative metal work has been exhibited include: Hard & Soft exhibition, Denton, TX; Craft Forms exhibition, Wayne, PA; Display Use Only exhibition, Seattle, WA; Cheongju International Craft Biennale 2003 exhibition, Cheongju City, Korea; Innovative Tools For Personal Use exhibition (sponsored by 3M Corporation and the Society of North American Goldsmiths), Denver, CO.
