Applications are now open for the ICE Resin ® Creative Team October 2013 – September 2013
The following definitions and information will help you as a member of the ICE Resin® Creative Team.
What is ICE Resin®/Art Mechanique™? ICE Resin is an amazing jeweler’s grade two-part epoxy resin that contains no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), is low odor and non-toxic when cured. It was created by Artist and Metalsmith Susan Lenart Kazmer, and remains her signature product in the Art Mechanique line. The Art Mechanique™ brand consists of craft products created by Susan and ICE Resin’s first Designer line, Rue Romantique by Kristen Robinson.
You might wonder what we are seeking in a Designer; we are looking for someone with not only a keen eye for design but also a strong understanding of trends. We desire individuals with the ability to think outside of the box while remaining cutting edge, trendsetting and true to their own style. Keep in mind, while we are seeking artistically minded Designers we are not necessarily narrowing our vision to those who are widely known in the industry. Rather, it is our hope to create a team of Designers with various skills in jewelry, artwork, assemblage, and design aesthetics.
While our Designers are provided with products, we are looking for compositions that stand on their own with fresh ideas not replications or interpretations of what is trendy in the Arts and Crafts industries at this time. It is important to keep in mind ICE Resin® is not just for creating jewelry, but rather multiple applications such as Mixed-Media Assemblage, Paper Arts, Scrapbooking and more!
What to Expect: Designers periodically receive a box of hand-selected items from our line of amazing products such as bezels, chain, fibers, and of course, ICE Resin® and our new Iced Enamels®. Each designer is asked to create:
- 28 projects per year
- 7 short “How To” videos over the course of the year.
Each year we participate in various trade shows and workshops; for these events we rely on our Designers to come up with artwork, jewelry and assemblage to be used in our displays for which they receive compensation and/or credit.
How to Apply: To be considered for the Creative Team simply fill out the ICE Resin 201314 CT app and be sure to attach 3 photographs of your most recent work and a link to a how to video you made. Submit the photos, completed application and video link to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, June 26, 2013. New Creative Team Members will be notified by August 11. Mid-September we will announce our new Creative Team to the industry.
