Has anyone else read the latest Metalsmith magazine, which is the
annual exhibition in print?
I’m just curious to see what Orchidians thought about it. There was
some very non- traditional work, some of which I liked and some I
didn’t…but seeing as how metalsmithing is something that I’ve just
barely started learning, I wondered what some of the more
experienced jewelry makers thought about it.
Do you like the fact that people are using so many non-traditional
materials, or would you prefer to see more precious metals and
well-cut stones? What about the piece that was actually a virtual
piece projected onto the model? I remember reading a comment
somewhere from someone who was bothered by the inclusion of so many
non-metal pieces in a recent issue of Metalsmith (which doesn’t
really bother me, but I do see the point).
