Hey im not sure this belongs here but I think jewelry can be considered sculpture to some extent. This is an extremely large brass pendant about 10 inches long. Any criticism would be appreciated. :confused:

That's the way I see it; i.e., jewelry is just miniature sculpture you wear. ;)
Man! No kidding that's a large pendant! That's larger than some of my sculptures! LOL.
I've been designing some jewelry, lately, myself. This one is a pendant I did the other day. It's in the digital realm, for now. When I have the money to have a wax pattern made via rapid prototyping, I'll then cast it in fine silver.

I think its interesting, being a young one and I being an old one I am curious about something: I see a lot of design work in furniture jewelry and sculpture elements as well as interest in archetecture that is definitely of the 60's through 70's. Is this a predominate trend among young people ie. 20-40 yr?

Well, being 52 (53 in October), I wouldn't know, Blue. ;)
Then again, as one who has made his living in the field of architecture and design for nearly thirty years, I'm aware, to an extent, of the fact that what comes around goes around and there has been, in architecture, as well as interior design, furniture design, jewelry design and so on, a resurgence of interest in modernism, during the past several years. I applaud this pendulum swing back in that direction, especially in architecture, and, in particular, in residential architecture, which remains dominated by this tendency to recycle the forms of the 18th and 19th centuries, whether it makes any sense or not to do so. There is a whole new generation who are just now discovering modern art and design of the twentieth century and who are influenced by it. You see modern houses and other buildings being used, increasingly, in advertising, these days, also. But, for me, none of this ever went away, to begin with; I've been a modernist all of my life, even when it hasn't been in vogue to do so.

Its funny that you should mention that some of my work looks as if it came from the 60s or 70s thatís what a professor said to me. He would like to see me move away from this trend. Thatís partly why im in this forum. I hope to see what people are creating today. Most art history books stop around the 60s if that. I guess I havenít been exposed to too much recent art.
