Looking forward to hearing from you- best, Claudio


Extremities: Exploring the Margins of the Human Body
Artists: A group show held in conjunction with the annual conference of
The Society of North American Goldsmiths SNAG 2010

An international juried exhibition of work for and about the arms, hands,
legs, and feet -- as inspiration, as subject, as site. The work will
encompass jewelry, objects, metal, and many other materials in a range of
conceptual approaches.

About the Juror: Andy Cooperman lives in Seattle Washington. His work,
known for an intuitive melding of high craft and spontaneous surface and
form development, can be found on the pages of numerous publications
including Art Jewelry Today (I & II) and The Penland Book of Jewelry.
Public collections include the Victoria and Albert Museum and Tacoma Art
Museum. Andy teaches seminars and workshops across the country and held a
two-year position as a visiting lecturer at the University of Washington.
In addition to building one-of-a kind pieces, Andy also works with clients
as a custom jeweler and commission metalsmith. His most recent exhibition
Selections from Animates, Portals and Hymenoptera, a collection of jewelry
and objects from three bodies of work, was on display at the Tacoma Art
Museum. Please visit his website at

About the Venue: Located in the heart of the Museum District, The Jung
Center is ideally situated next to the Glassell Junior School, site of the
SNAG juried student exhibition and across from the Museum of Fine Arts’
Glassell School of Art. The Jung Center has an elegant, intimate
exhibition space; it will be a featured venue on the conference’s Thursday
night exhibition crawl.

Dear all,
Here is some wonderful news I would like to share with you. My newest sculptural ring "Infinities" received the "Best in the Show 2009 Steel Trophy" award from the Metal Arts Guild of Canada. The ring will be exhibited during the "MAG 2067 - Crafting the Future" exhibition in Toronto from October 31 to Nov 19 at the
ARTA Gallery - 55 Mill Street, Building 9, Suite 102. Afterwards, the ring will be exhibited from November to March at the GTAA -- Greater Toronto Airport Authority Lounge at the Pearson Airport. For more information, please see below-
Looking forward to hearing from you- best, Claudio


"MAG 2067 - Crafting the Future" is a juried exhibition of jewellery and metal arts on exhibit from Oct 31 to Nov 19, 2009 at ARTA Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery District, 55 Mill Street, Building 9, Suite 102. The guild asked its members to conceptualize what Canada would be like in 2067. Utopian or dystopian? They were given five possible futures to choose from, which are portrayed in hollowware, jewellery, sculpture and visual arts. Best in Show was awarded to Claudio Pino for his Kinetic ring, “Infinities” which was created for a zero gravity environment on a future Canadian Space Station.

Juried on Oct 13th, 2009, the judges: Sandra Noble Goss - Member and Metal Arts Guild's 2000 Steel Trophy winner, Bob McDonald host of CBC "Quirks and Quarks” and Jay Ingram, host of Discovery Channel "Daily Planet" awarded the prizes and made selections for inclusion in the exhibition.

This year is especially exciting for the metal artists as the exhibition has been chosen to travel to the GTAA (Greater Toronto Airport Authority) in the International Departures Lounge of Pearson Airport from the end of Nov to the beginning of March. The work will be viewed by thousands of travelers especially over the holiday season. So if you are traveling through Toronto over the next few months you'll get a chance to see the show. +

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

The best place to let everyone see it immediately is here on your profile. You can also post it to the discussion board, and to the MAGazine group. The Spring issue is already finished, but I'll be happy to reprint the notice in the Fall issue, which will come out in September. Congratulations!

Hi Claudio,
I was so happy to see your amazing work. The movement in your rings is particularly interesting to me. I just read your project in Jewelry Artist (LJ) and will give it a try. It seems like just about everyone says they find inspiration in nature, but I think your interpretations are the best I've ever seen. Stunningly beautiful and unique.

At 12:30pm on August 18, 2008, MAG Tech Support said…
Claudio, great news about your selection and lapidary journal article if you would like to post info my I suggest using the forum on the main page rather than events. Events is for MAG events, Gem shows, Galleries etc - as an FYI.
