Interstitial Arts charity jewelry auction

The Interstitial Arts Foundation (promoting "art made in the interstices between genres and categories...disciplines, mediums, and cultures") is celebrating the anniversary of the release of the Interfictions Anthology with a charity auction featuring jewelry made by Interfictioneers and inspired by the stories in Interfictions. This is a fascinating gang of science fiction/fantasy people who are really breaking new ground!

(Pictured: 'Willow Pattern' by Elise Matthesen, based on the story 'Willow Pattern' by Jon Singer.)

To celebrate the anniversary of Interfictions, we invited jewelers/beaders to create wearable art based on the 19 stories in our first original anthology. Come bid on some amazing pieces by many talented artists, including Elise Matthesen, JoSelle Vanderhooft – and Interfictions authors Leslie What, Rachel Pollack, and K. Tempest Bradford, who have created one-of-a-kind, collectible wearable interpretations of their own work!

New pieces go up every two days and auctions last for 4-7 days. Bid early and often–bids start as low as $10! All proceeds will go to supporting Interstitial Arts projects, including the second Interfictions volume, Interfictions 2, to be published in Fall 2009

  1. Jon Singer wrote a story? “Technocrat of the Breakfast Table” Jon Singer? Cool. I’ll have to look the book up.

  2. Voiceofreason, one person likes a Big Mac and one likes pizza with asparagus and goat cheese. Many of us think Elise does lovely work.

    If that particular piece isn’t too your taste, check out some of the other things she’s done. Like all good artists, her fans disagree about what’s her best work.

  3. The first Interfictions anthology is lovely. It’s not only got some great stories, but many of them are newer voices in fiction. I expect the net one to be just as good, if not better.

    Also, it’s a dang pretty necklace.
