Jessica Joslin – When beauty meets bone…

Featured Artist – Jessica Joslin

For those of you who have never laid eyes on Jessica’s work, you are about to be amazed.
Metal smiths prepare to be humbled. Sculptors, raise your jaws off the floor.
I am so inspired when looking at Jessica’s work that I don’t know quite what to do.
So I clear my head and go back to work hoping that the genius of such pieces as Ludwig, Lupe and Egon will rise to the surface of my own imagination… just a little bit.

Head over to Jessica's site to see more of her work!

Pics from the bench

I'm trying out a new weekly post called "Pics form the bench". Let's see how it works out!
I need your help on this one, this means YOU!
This post is all about photos taken from YOUR(and my) work area.
Here's the catch...

It's not about the work you are doing or even the materials you work with, but focused on(see what I did there:P) the designs you can create with what is laying around your work area.
As a matter of fact, the less we can tell what your photos are actually of the better.
This is a design oriented idea. In other words, don't take a photo of a pencil laying on a piece of paper. Take a close up of the pencil going through the paper! Got it!?! Think outside the box!
Macros work great for this!

It's easy! Just keep your camera by your side when you are working... when something catches your eye, take some shots! Careful though, it's easy to get sidetracked!

No matter what your work or work area is(it does not have to be a bench or metals related), send your photos to me, or give me a link and I will put them up each week!
Be creative, be very creative! Photo editing is warmly welcomed and encouraged!
Send your photos/links to
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
I am going to start this off with a photo from this weekend.
Have fun!
