Talking with Bruce Metcalf

Talking with Bruce Metcalf

Today I talk with studio jeweler and writer, Bruce Metcalf.

I had such a wonderful time talking with Mr. Metcalf. A big thank you to Bruce for sharing with me his insights and knowledge on the topic of “craft”, and I look forward to reading his upcoming book, Makers: A History of American Studio Craft, this coming summer!

Also, lots of books and magazines to talk about and some stories to tell.


Bruce Metcalf is an American artist who uses different materials like wood, metal, and plexiglass. With these materials he uses diverse techniques for the jewelry, sculptures, and wall reliefs that he creates. Many of these works are whimsical yet restrained works that comment on the human condition.
