What you'll learn in this episode: How synesthesia—the ability to hear colors and see music—has impacted William's work Inside William's creative process, and why he never uses sketches or finishes a piece in one sitting Why jewelry artists should never scrap a piece, even if they don't like it in the moment The benefits of being a self-taught artist, and why art teachers should never aim to impart their style onto their students How a wearer's body becomes like a gallery wall for jewelry About William Harper Born in Ohio and currently working in New York City, William Harper is considered one of the most significant jewelers of the 20th century. After studying advanced enameling techniques at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Harper began his career as an abstract painter but transitioned to enameling and studio craft jewelry in the 1960s. He is known for creating esoteric works rooted in mythology and art history, often using unexpected objects such as bone, nails, and plastic beads in addition to traditional enamel, pearls, and precious metals and stones. His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Crafts, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A retrospective of his work, William Harper: The Beautiful & the Grotesque, was exhibited at the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2019. Additional Resources: William's Instagram Photos available on TheJewelryJourney.com Transcript: Rather than stifle his creativity, the constraints of quarantine lockdown and physical health issues helped artist-jeweler William Harper create a series of intricate jewels and paintings imbued with meaning. After 50+ years as an enamellist, educator and artist in a variety of media, he continues to find new ways to capture and share his ideas. He joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about his creative process; why he didn't want his art students to copy his style; and why he never throws a piece in progress away, even if he doesn't like it. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the first part of a two-part episode. Please make sure you subscribe so you can hear part two as soon as it's released later this week. I'd like to welcome back one of today's foremost jewelers, William Harper. To say he is a jeweler leaves out many parts of him. He's a sculptor, an educator, an artist, an enamellist, and I'm sure I've leaving out a lot more. His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Crafts, the Museum of Fine Arts, and most recently he had a one-person show, “The Beautiful & the Grotesque,” at the Cleveland Institute of Art. I can't do justice to all of his work, so I'll let him try to do some. Bill, welcome to the program. William: Thank you. It's great to see you again. Sharon: It's so great to see you after everything we've gone through. Give us an overview of how you got into jewelry and enameling, your art, everything. How did you get into it? William: One of the questions you gave me to ponder ahead of time was if I was interested in jewelry when I was a child. I was not even interested in jewelry when I was in college, except for taking one course to make the wedding rings for my now ex-wife, but that was it. A few years later, I got a phone call from Florida State University asking me if I would like to interview for a job teaching jewelry and metals and enameling. I wrote back and said, “I don't think I'm the person you want, because I don't know very much about jewelry.” So, I said no. Two days later, they called me again, and I told them the same thing. Then two days later, they called me again and I said, “Let me think about this. You're on the quarter system. Are you willing to pay me for one quarter, when I'm not there and I'm cramming on how to teach jewelry?” The head of the department said, “That sounds like a great idea. As long as you can come three weeks ahead of the students, we'll be happy.” I'm basically self-taught except for watching people at a few workshops. I think being self-taught is a very valuable tool because I was not chained to the style or techniques of any major professor, which happens so much, especially to students coming out with MFAs. For years, their work will look pretty much like what their instructor was doing. I didn't have that. I was my own instructor, and I was able to play out, in my 55-year career, how to do what I saw vaguely in my mind. I should say at this point, I had synesthesia—I could never say it correctly—which is the ability to hear music and see colors or see a painting and hear music. I'm blessed with that. I used to think it was a chain around my neck, but I appreciate the fact that I can do something that very few people can do. Sharon: You mean you see a painting or you hear music and you think about how that translates into art or jewelry? I'll call what you do jewelry. William: Yeah. The strangest one is I can smell an odor, whether it's bad or something overly sweet, like old lady rose perfume or cigars, and I have an instant reaction where I see—I don't see things; I sense things in my mind. That's the way it works. Sharon: You've talked about the dichotomy in your work. Does that play into it? William: Oh, absolutely. I've always been in opposites. Long before I was doing jewelry, I had a very successful enamel career. I would usually make two different objects in the same physical format, but one would deal with sensations that are opposite of the other, such as light and dark, good and evil, colorful and noncolorful. That informed that work. Now, after all the years doing jewelry exclusively, I try to build diametrically opposed ideas into the forms. You mentioned the exhibition the Cleveland Institute of Art gave me a few years ago, “The Beautiful & the Grotesque.” The title of that show epitomized what I'm usually doing in my work. Sometimes it's not always obvious to the viewer, but it serves as a jumping point for me. If I can plug the catalogue— Sharon: Please do. William: Cleveland did a beautiful catalogue. Everything that was in the show was there. If you're interested in it, it's $25 plus $9.95 shipping. It adds up to $34.95. To get it, you can contact me at my email address, which is ArtWilliamHarper@mac.com. Sharon: ArtWilliamHarper@mac.com. William: Yes. Sharon: We'll have a thumbnail of that on the website so you can click on it and order it. William: Good, you've seen the catalogue. Can you vouch for how beautiful it is? Sharon: It's a beautiful catalogue. It has everything, the jewelry, the boxes, all of the art. When I say boxes, I'm thinking of the ones that are really art pieces. You said you think a lot of art is about thinking. What do you think about when you're doing your art? William: It often starts way before I actually begin making anything. That's a hard question to answer. For instance, I've done several series based on other artists, all of whom were painters. I prefer painting to jewelry right now, I have to say. But in terms of these influences, I would look at the work, for instance the work of Jean Dubuffet. He has incredibly beautiful, messy patterns that run— Sharon: Who? William: Jean Dubuffet. Sharon: Oh, Dubuffet, yes. William: I have loved his work for many, many years, and I have known that he was the instigator of what is called the art brut movement, which is art that is made by people that not only are not highly educated in universities or art departments, but they might have some kind of physical disability or mental disability, where they express themselves in these absolutely gorgeous, out of this world ways, not like any professional artist would do. Dubuffet collected those and was instrumental in having a museum set up—I think it was in Switzerland; I should know that—of this work. Talking about dichotomy, I wanted to catch that quality of not knowing what I was doing along with my sophisticated technique and taste. So, I did this series. I think there are 10 pieces. In order to do it, as I got into the third or fourth piece, I decided I wanted to write an essay about what the series meant to me being put into this catalogue. So, I gave it the name Dubu. Sharon: How? William: D-U-B-U. I came up with idea that a Dubu is a fantastical creature that can infect your mind and cause you to do absolutely glorious things. It was just something I made up in my mind. I should also say that I don't start a piece and finish it immediately. I don't even know where I'm going when I start a piece. I simply go into the studio and start playing around with the gold. I know that sounds silly, that somebody can play around with something as precious as gold. But in doing so, there's another dichotomy. I'm able to come up with forms that I would never be able to otherwise. At this point, I should mention I do absolutely no sketches, diagrams, or beginning things on paper to guide me. I simply allow the materials to guide me. I trust in them and my manipulation of them that they will start leading me to see what I want to be after. Sometimes these are small enamel pieces. Sometimes they're more complex with gold pieces. Sometimes they're a consideration of how to use a stone or a pearl. As I'm making these things, I know I can't use them necessarily in piece number one. So, my idea is, “O.K., go to my idea for piece number two and follow the same format of making things, simply because they amuse me.” I don't take myself seriously while I'm doing these things. I think that's part of why they're successful. I should say one of the qualities that my work has been lauded for is being humorous without being funny, without being a caricature. I have found that is a rather rough road to travel, but I'm able to facilitate it somehow. Anyway, I have these pieces I made, piece number one and piece number two. I still want to play around with making, let's say, a different kind of cloisonné enamel that had been used in pieces one and two. At that point, after I have made things that could become three different pieces, I take what I like and finish piece number one. As often as not, I think of the title first, which I know is a rather strange way to go about it. But in thinking of a title, it helps me guide the quality of the personage I'm dealing with. So, I finished piece number one. I don't take anything away from it at that point. When I get to piece number two, I'd better start making things for piece number four. There's this manipulation where all the pieces start moving around on my desk. When I start seeing there is a conclusion in making each one successfully, I know I can stop. Often in that process, I paint myself into a corner. I don't know where I'm going, but actually that's the best part in terms of the quality of the piece, because it gives me the opportunity to really think about what I'm after. After I've contemplated that, I'm able to get out of the corner, and I do piece number two and piece number three. This is a process I've used my entire career. I've done a series dedicated to Jasper Johns which is very intellectual, because he's a very intellectual artist. I did a series on Fabergé. I don't really like Fabergé. I admire him, but I don't like him particularly. In my series, each brooch had an egg-shaped enamel part as a part of the physicality of the piece. One of the things I don't like about Fabergé is that his work was very dry. It's beautiful, but it's dry. It doesn't have any kind of emotion attached to it at all. It was perfect for the Russian nobility because they were decadent. They were inbred. They proceeded far too long in this sociological process. So, I changed it by having in each piece a little zip that went from the outside peripheral into the center, which was like a sperm getting to the egg and fertilizing it. That's how I dealt with that matter. I've also done a series on Cy Twombly, who is my favorite painter. I know people wonder how I can be influenced by his work, which I admire for its messiness. I wish I could do it. People either get Twombly or they don't. When I look at a group of Twombly pieces, I'll have an idea of how to start meshing these into the same process I mentioned before, with the Dubus. I think I did the Twomblys 25 years ago and they still look fresh. That's how my process works. Sharon: How do you know if you've hit a wall? If you say, “This isn't going to work. I'm going to put it in the junk pile”? William: I don't put things in junk piles. It's too expensive and the enamel is too precious. I just put the elements aside. I know if I'm doing a series of 10 pieces, or if I decide I want it to be 12 pieces—it's never more than 12 in a series—by the time I get to 10 or 12, I had better have come to a conclusion with all those pieces and not have left off too many elements. I just put those aside. I might use them again in four years, five years. My work is rather slow because I think a lot about it, and I don't have drawings to follow. I don't think of myself as a designer; I think of myself as an artist who makes jewelry. There's a difference. Sharon: Do you know before you start how many pieces will be in a collection? Do you say, “I'm going to make 10 pieces. They're going to be in the collection, and I have no idea what it is”? William: Yeah, I generally set a goal for myself. There are other pieces I do that I call knee play pieces. Knee plays come from music. Robert Wilson collaborated on a piece that is now an iconic gem called Einstein on the Beach. It was in five acts, which, if you think my work is unintelligible, this work was almost totally unintelligible. But it appealed to a certain kind of mind as being exquisite. Between each act, without scenery or costumes or anything like that, there were groups of instrumentalists and vocalists who would improvise. With the knee play pieces, it's not determined what the music and the vocalization is going to be. The vocalization is not consisting of words; it's consisting of almost primal sounds that are put together with a cadence of Phillip Glass music. The reason they call it knee play is that they connect the acts. As soon as this group of pieces, the knee play music, is over from act one, they will usually suggest some kind of music or situation you're going to see in act two. That's sort of a meandering, intellectual approach, but I really like the idea. In my career, I haven't just made series. I've often done isolated pieces, and I would do those in order to open up thought processes I could use to get to the next series. Does that make sense? Sharon: Yes. Is that how you got to the collection you did during lockdown quarantine?

Program Notes Being a woman of European decent, I always look forward to and value the opportunity to speak with women who are leaders in DE&I for the chance to discover more of my own unconscious bias that was trained from birth. The privilege of having Dr. Sacha Joseph-Mathews as a guest was a powerful experience in this direction. Her wisdom about how common it is to overlook the oppressions of those around us served to heighted my own awareness of oppressive nuances I might have previously overlooked. Combining this with her clear reminder to be mindful of the oppressions that are not external, but rather radiate from within is a call to each of us to listen internally with as much attention as we pay to the outer environment. I am still contemplating her invitation to learn what being our authentic self is, and to notice how some relationships are not healthy for maintaining authenticity. I invite you to tune in to discover how the powerful illuminations of this powerful and generous woman can enhance your own life and perceptions.   BIO: Dr. Sacha Joseph-Mathews is the Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and a Marketing Professor in the Eberhardt School of Business at the University of the Pacific.

Dr. Joseph-Mathews has taught classes in the United States, the Caribbean Asia and Africa in international marketing, international business, marketing management, services marketing, advertising and promotions, hospitality and services management, entrepreneurial marketing, customer service, diversity management and event planning. She has presented and published articles in tourism, marketing, advertising, ethical consumption, diversity and inclusion, green consumerism, supply chain management and international trade. As a professor Dr. Mathews has been actively involved in community outreach which has led her to work with social entrepreneurs across the world teaching them marketing fundamentals. She is particularly passionate about working with female social entrepreneurs.

He then realized that he was meant for so much more, so he pursued a real estate career and now owns more than 60 doors in several states.   This episode was really a good one because he talked about his fantastic story of being undocumented, how he moved from Peru over to the US, his DACA program experience, his MLS deal (which is owner financed btw), his partnership deals, all the trials and tribulations he has been through coming here to the US, and how he turned it all around in order to be where he is now.

Bio for Mr. Jack Bushong Jr. Jack Bushong received his degree in Meteorology at Florida State University in 1988. He trained for Television weathercasting the following year but was recruited by the National Weather Service (NWS) which is a Federal Agency and a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). His first NWS office was near his hometown of Muskegon, MI, in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he had extensive training in Surface Weather Observations, Weather Forecasting and the issuance of Severe Weather Warnings to the public. Mr. Bushong, also, received training in Pilot Weather Briefings. In 1991, Mr. Bushong transferred to his hometown at the NWS Office in Muskegon. NWS Muskegon was a weather radar site where he received extensive weather radar training in order to be on shift alone. The NWS was undergoing the most ambitious modernization and restructuring program through the early 1990s where the new NWS Doppler Radar would become a major part of all NWS offices across the country. In 1994, Mr. Bushong was transferred with promotion to the NWS Southeast River Forecast Center (SERFC) in Atlanta, GA. The SERFC has responsibility for all river forecasting and river flooding forecasts across the Southeastern US and Puerto Rico. Mr. Bushong worked alongside hydrologists as a meteorologist where he produced rainfall forecasts for river forecasting models. He also was trained in river forecasting and Hydrology as well. One important duty for the SERFC by Mr. Bushong was to calibrate radar precipitation estimates based on ground-based rain gauges. Under his large area of responsibility, Mr. Bushong needed to have an enormous amount of training and knowledge of how weather radars work. Across the Southeast USA, 35 NWS radars are used in a mosaic and calibrated with over 2000 rain gauges. Mr. Bushong has a great interest in computer programming and web page development. From the beginning of the Internet age, Mr. Bushong produced the first web page for the SERFC and remained webmaster until his retirement. Mr. Bushong also used his programming skills to produce graphics from the text products the NWS produced at the time by mapping river conditions and forecasts. Mr. Bushong was the first webmaster across the NWS to create graphs (Hydrographs), in real-time, depicting river and flood forecasts to make radar forecasts easier to read for customers such as FEMA. In fact, Mr. Bushong received the Regional Director's Award along with a cash bonus for not only a near perfect rain forecast for Hurricane Floyd in 1999, but also rushed to complete the programming to display hydrographs as requested by FEMA. Hurricane Floyd resulted in the worst flooding in North Carolina history. NWS Headquarters decided to use Mr. Bushong's examples of new web products for their creation of the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction System (AHPS). Mr. Bushong was also on the NWS team which brough real time NWS radar images to the web. After retirement from the NWS in 2016, Mr. Bushong kept his interest in computers and programming. Other interests include Photography, Drone Photography and 3D Printing, and playing Flight Simulator in his spare time. Mr. Bushong has been a big fan of Microsoft Flight Simulator since 1993, fulfilling his strong interest in aircraft.

A lot of times, we're told that the way to grow a business is by growing your revenue or cutting your expenses. And while those are both key components, there are ways to generate greater health for your business by increasing the amount on the bottom line - in ways we're not taught to think about.    My guest today is someone who thinks and focuses her practice on helping small law firms scale their businesses using sound financial policies. Her name is Danielle Hendon, and she is the founder and CEO of 4 Corners CFO, LLC. With more than a decade of experience working in corporate finance and accounting, and a passion for people that rivals her love of numbers, Danielle brings the benefit of big business financial analysis to entrepreneurs on a scale that fits both their company AND their budget.   In this episode, we discuss: Ways to generate greater health for your business by increasing the amount on the bottom line How to plan - and ultimately fund - your growth before you get there Your time is worth more for your growth than you'd like to pay a bookkeeper Looking at the bottom line is going to be the key indicator of the health of your business.     Contacts - Social Media Danielle Hendon Website: https://4cornerscfo.com/   Snip-Its 00:14:48 (36 Seconds)  So there's a couple of different types of profit margin, one being that net profit margin, which just like we talked about earlier, net income is going to drive your net profit margin. That is, after all the expenses, you want that number to be 10 to 15%. That's the ideal range for a business to run a net profit. And that gives you what you need to put back into the business to continue to grow and scale the way that you want to. The gross profit margin that I mentioned just a minute ago is going to be your revenue minus the costs that go into providing that Revenue service.   Allison Bio: Allison C.

Sue is the EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer at HVMG, a hospitality management company based in Atlanta. You could make a strong argument that the common thread through which many of today's challenges in hospitality are connected are through Human Resources. That's definitely not saying that HR is the cause, but rather HR being the bridge to many of the solutions. We've done some episodes in the past about how hotels are dealing with challenges around retention, recruiting, culture, benefits or development, but I wanted to have Sue on the show to share how a large hotel company is thinking about these at a more global level.  It's relatively easy to innovate on a one-off hotel basis, but it's another thing entirely to find and implement non-traditional solutions at scale, and that's what we're discussing on this episode. I really enjoyed hearing about some of the ideas that HVMG is bringing to life and my hope, as it is with every episode, is that you find something here that can help you and your business. About SueAs EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer, Sue oversees all Human Resources functions, including talent acquisition, talent development, associate retention and engagement strategies, human resources services, associate relations and benefits. Prior to joining HVMG, Sue worked as a management consultant supporting leading organizations to improve their enterprise performance management processes for clients including the The Coca-Cola Company, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Marriott International and the American Red Cross.  Prior to working as a management consultant, Sue worked in the hospitality industry for 18 years. She worked for Starwood Hotels and Resorts as Global Director, Six Sigma Training and Deployment and prior to that as Director of Organizational Development for St. Regis Hotels. From 1996 - 2000 Sue worked for Lodgian, Inc. (formerly Impac Hotel Group) as Director of Training and Development; from 1991 - 1996 she worked for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company as Corporate Quality Advisor and The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead in hotel operations and human resources. Her hospitality industry experience also includes a five-year adjunct faculty appointment at New York University's Robert Preston Tisch Center for Hospitality Travel and Tourism.  Sue serves on the Metro Atlanta Board of Directors for the American Red Cross, the Hospitality Board of Directors for Georgia State University and is a special advisor to the Castell Project, promoting diversity in the hospitality industry.
