HANDMADE BIRDCAGES

Hello, I am Joe Diemer. I make birdcages of stainless steel, copper, and other beautiful materials, with the goal of reviving ornament for the modern home.

Lecture and Giveaways April 17th

"The Painless Appeal of Stainless Steel" is the extremely erudite title of a lecture to be held at Portland's Curiosity Club on Tuesday April 17th at 6 PM.

I'll be speaking about how I've made stainless work for my birdcages and wire goods, and I'll show lesser-known tips and ways to work with stainless steel for those who, like me, don't own a TIG welder. There will be a demo on electropolishing (the polishing of stainless with electrical current and acid), and trivia giveaways of schnazzy wire goods. 

Come say hello, ask questions, and hopefully win something:

The Curiosity Club meets in the back of Hand-Eye Supply: 23 NW 4th Ave in Portland, which is just past the Chinatown gate.

mysterium: curiosities of wonder and delight

Visit RiverSea Gallery in Astoria Oregon to experience a compendium of oddities from the far reaches of the imagination that connect us to our dreams, return us to a childlike sense of discovery and encourage us to open our minds to unexplained misteries.

This invitational exhibition will include the work of six artists who all work in sculpture. Each artist takes inspiration from the past and merges that history into fantastical and original art pieces. I'll show my architectural wirework sculpture as well as 3 fantasy birdcages. Kristy Charroin will include her altered photographs and illuminated sculpture. Tabor Porter and Gregory Carrigan will both be exhibiting uniquely whimsical sculpture. Also included in the show will be figurative sculpture created from organic materials by Lisa Kaser as well as steampunk metal sculpture from Christopher Truax.

I feel honored to be included among these artists at such a wonderful gallery. The RiverSea Gallery is at 1160 Commercial Street in Astoria Oregon 97103.
