This blog began way back in 2010 as a hobbyist's journal. I enjoy metalsmithing and have always loved to write. I had recently started working on marketing projects for clients and the work was still slow coming in. A little blog project seemed like the perfect way to integrate my interests and simultaneously expand my skills in metalsmithing, website design and social media.
I've been browsing through four years of posts, thinking of them like stepping stones or bread crumbs along a path that I'm still walking. There were some hits and misses on the blog, all good learning experiences.
Also high on the list are My Modified Harbor Freight Hydraulic Press, My First Green Patina Experiment, Blog Index for 5th Annual Lewton-Brain Conference (a live-blog collection), and Large Scale Foldforming with Linda Leviton, Part 1 and Part 2.
I'm excited to continue directing the annual Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition along with its new www.foldforming.org venue and our thriving global Facebook community for metalsmiths.
I also design websites (e.g., this new website launched last weekend) and manage communications projects for small business clients. Contact me if you'd like to talk over your project needs.
As for the blog? I have some artist spotlights in mind. More soon!
