[462] Studio Visit - Abrasha
Abrasha occupies about 300 square feet of neat, well organized space. Unlike many jewelers, who make do with garages, kitchen tables, barns, and industrial offices, often characterized by a lack of light, he enjoys a corner office with large picture windows. Against the walls are an office desk, jewelers' workbenches, and fabrication equipment, and in the center are more heavy-duty items, such as rolling Milk, a lathe, and milling machine; most are old but still in fine working condition....

[310] Studio Visit - Andrew Goss and Sandra Noble Goss

[576] Studio Visit - Christina Smith
Keeping a life in balance isn't easy, and for the studio artist it's a push-pull between dealing with the outside world and making time and space for creativity.

During the day, the friendly and outgoing Smith is an assistant professor at California State University, Fullerton. After more than 20 years in the academic salt mines, she's now on the tenure track, teaching beginning crafts in addition to undergraduate and graduate level metalsmithing.... (2004)

[651] Studio Visit - Cynthia Eid
Consisting of three small rooms crammed with tooks, boxes, and books (including a spare bathroom complete with shower stall/patina spray booth), the studio is part and parcel of Eids home. This is not a grand sanctuary, it is the workspace of someone who has carved time and place out of a full family life. By the confines of the available square footage, the studio seems to have grown like a bonsai tree: small yet fully formed. The bench space is painfully tiny and the soldering area appears totally inadequate considering the scale of the commissions Eid produces. But, whether it is through disciplined and methodical work habits or by an ability to just "make do," Eid creates pieces that defy this constriction and exist fully and beautifully in large and magnificent spaces....

[461] Studio Visit - Daniel Brush
The intimate bond between Brush's creative and personal life is evident upon entering his Manhattan loft. The kitchen and dining area abut a well-equipped machine shop, while bedrooms peak out from behind a white gallery wall. The loft's dominant feature is the vast expanse of red maple floor, which serves a surprisingly key role in Brush's artistic process.... (2002)
