I am very honored to be representing the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) in this year’s online exhibition, We Are SNAG: Contemporary Smiths. Out of 700 entries my teapot, Akimbo, was one of only 27 pieces chosen for this exhibition. It even includes a piece by one of my metalsmithing heroes, David Huang!

From “blacksmith” to “goldsmith”, “silversmith” to “bladesmith”, the term “smith” denotes connotations of skill and mastery.  As makers, designers, craftspeople, artists, students, teachers, independent studio practitioners, gallerists, and hobbyists, WE ARE SNAG.  Juried by Sue Amendolara, Greg Gehner, and Tom Muir, this online exhibition embraces the work of contemporary smiths and highlight some of the extraordinary works created by members of SNAG using traditional or contemporary smithing processes including, but not limited to: vessels, objects, sculpture, jewelry, and architectural works. WE ARE SNAGContemporary Smiths is the second in a series of juried online WE ARE SNAG member exhibitions celebrating the breadth of our field and membership.
