Group Info


REGARDING THE FEATURED GALLERY: Your best work should be treated to a flattering background, good lighting and proper focus/depth of field. If I decide to reject something, it will likely be for those reasons. So please, give your art's presentation the same level of care that you used when constructing it. I don't reject Feature submissions based on whether I like your work or not, I reject them because you didn't pay proper respect to how you presented it. I'm not requiring professional studio photography here, just make it look like you care about your work.

If the work is all metal, then it qualifies.

If the work uses metal for at least 1/3 of its structural design members, then it qualifies.

If the work is predominately of another media but just uses metal fasteners or does not contain metal as an integral part of its design, then it likely does not qualify.

Virtual designs that imply that metal would be used to construct the physical object are allowed, but are also subject to the other guidelines.

The artist must be credited! Most people submit their own work, but if submitting work on behalf of another, the artist must be credited in the submission's description.

Jewelry: Please read the guidelines for Jewelry in the Metal Forms blog:…

Twice now I've held off on approving submissions made on behalf of other artists where said artists did not receive credit in the descriptions.  In each case, the artist's name was known by the submitter, but rather than make a simple change: art by <name here>, the submitter allowed the submission to expire without making a simple update.  

What gives?

We're not an exclusive group, but clearly this group is for and by artisans producing handmade metal tools, jewelry, armor, blades, furniture, etc.  I don't think it's too much to ask for credit to be given where it's due.

tl;dr - if you submit something you didn't make, make sure artist name is in description.

Since this is a group for crafting I wanted to let you know that I am holding a Secret Santa for all the crafters here on DA. If you'd like to advertise it here on your page it would be appreciated! Otherwise just letting you know that it's going on. :)
