DAILY Qmmunity  October 22, 2014, by Kate X Messer
"...[image-1] Thomas will appear before the Historic Landmark Commission at Monday's hearing. The first records of what were an old rail yard officially date to 1925, and the building retains a number of historic building elements – original long-leaf pine, blacksmith-hammered metalwork, etc..."

Food Story  January 31, 2014, by Gracie Salem

Who the Hell is this Seth White?
And what, if anything, do RPGs and LARPing have to do with art?
DAILY Arts  July 30, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...And so I’ve got all the art that I’m rendering from, and that’s gonna be the live-action film element. And then there’s gonna be The Transdimensional Bus-Stop, which is what this thing” – he hefts a substantial chunk of metalwork – “is a part of..."

Corrosion of Conformity
Music Review  March 16, 2012, by Michael Toland
"...Bassist Mike Dean may not have the monster vocal chops of immediate predecessor Pepper Keenan, but he's forceful enough to cut through the firestorm whipped up by guitarist Woody Weatherman (the only consistent member during the past 30 years) and drummer Reed Mullins. "Leeches" and "The Doom" lean more toward COC's latter-day Southern stoner metalwork, but burners "The Moneychangers," "Rat City," and "Psychic Vampire" hint at hardcore/metal dynamics of old..."

Heavy Metal
Even in blazing summer, Austin's welders and forgers fire it up and make like rock & rollers
Arts Story  July 27, 2007, by Rachel Koper
"...It takes an exciting level of concentration and efficiency of movement to work with searing steel. I visited and talked with more than a dozen metalworkers, and one thing occurred to me: Bad metalworkers get hurt and quit fast..."

Elaine Bradford: Freaks of Nurture
In her exhibition "Freaks of Nurture," Elaine Bradford's crochet-covered menagerie of stuffed animals is equal parts lighthearted nonsense and poignant sadness
Arts Review  March 23, 2007, by Amanda Douberley
"...The Houston-based artist's embellished deer heads were featured at Okay Mountain last summer in "Outside In," a two-person show with photographer William Hundley. At Okay Mountain, Bradford connected the antlers of crochet-covered deer heads with looping strands of striped stitching, making a playful network of red- and aqua-colored yarn that snaked across the ceiling's metalwork from one mount to another..."

"Tesoros de la Catedral de Saltillo -- Treasures of the Cathedral of Saltillo"
Mexic-Arte Museum's exhibition of "Tesoros de la Cathedral de Saltillo -- Treasures of the Cathedral of Saltillo" displays repositories not only of spiritual meaning and practice, but of the intertwining history of the Catholic Church and the indigenous peoples of Mexico.
Arts Review  November 29, 2002, by Madeline Irvine
"...All the treasures on display -- including a spectacular silver altar frontal reputed to be the best example of its kind in the Americas, heartfelt paintings, expressive carved and painted wooden statues, embroidered vestments, metalwork including chalices, crowns, incense containers, and other decorative arts objects -- are repositories not only of spiritual meaning and practice, but of the intertwining history of the Catholic Church and the indigenous peoples of Mexico. After you've had a chance to soak them in visually, there's an excellent hand-held Family Guide catalog sponsored by 3M that fleshes out the cultural history, provenance, and artistic techniques of these artifacts..."

After a Fashion
Who was that scary cowboy and why was he doing those nasty things??? Stephen ventures out to yet another "alternative" fashion show. Will he ever learn?
Columns  July 26, 2002, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...It might have been more interesting if I'd never seen these metal creations before, but they're the same pieces we've seen again and again. Though he's tried to diversify by designing with fabrics, the clothes were forgettable; his skills are obviously in metalwork..."

After a Fashion
Stephen gets a nasty letter and tells stories from the "Mommie Dearest" benefit. Bit-chee, bit-chee, bitcheeeeeeeeee…

Architecture & Lodging
Best of Austin Story  September 24, 1999

Unfolding Drama
Food Story  April 29, 1999, by Rebecca Chastenet dé Gery
"...It's a seductive, spacious place, with leather couches, a sprawling bar made of long-leaf yellow pine, and concrete floors stained naturally with spices like turmeric and paprika. Candles glow atop tables dressed in warm saffron- and cinnamon-colored cloths, and metalwork wall sconces give off additional subdued light..."

Full Gallop: Everything Is Beautiful
Arts Review  March 25, 1999
"...The blood simply adds a conceptual tone to the work and one that came to the artist's mind when he stumbled across a book from the Middle Ages about the Christian practice of preserving the bone and flesh relics of their Saints. These relics, which also include the blood of the artist, are what Brudniak calls "my own saints." By themselves, the sculptures are richly textured and beautifully crafted mixtures of woodwork and metalwork..."

Cafe Mundi
Food Story  January 14, 1999
"...The mood is bohemian, with strains of international music flowing from the sound system and African and Latin American art lining the shelf space, along with an unusual display of vintage mugs. The cafe's tiny tables are artworks in themselves (as is the metalwork globe that marks the place out front), and owner/manager Jessica Nieri's collection of beaded jewelry sits atop the bakery case, testament to her creativity beyond making a memorable cup o' joe...."

Think Positive
Columns  May 8, 1998
"...Last week's "Naked City" [Vol.17, No.34] had a piece about the Living Wage Campaign that mentioned the Industrial Workers of the World; however, the writer changed the name of the union to the rather repetitive International Workers of the World. Industrial does not imply only heavy industry, but means that we believe everyone who works in the same industry, whether education, metalwork, mining, etc., should be in the same union rather than split into craft unions, where their collective power is weakened...."
