5 W's… well, 4 of them…
It is our intent
to build FineCraftNetwork.com into the finest and most comprehensive
portal dedicated to the world of decorative arts and fine craft
online. Until now, there hasn't been one single, unified place where
artists, collectors, galleries, and other fans of the decorative
arts and fine craft could congregate to discover, learn, communicate
and enjoy their common interests.
FineCraftNetwork.com is devoted specifically to what matters to
us: the functional and decorative arts and fine craft markets. No
more irrelevant search results. More in-depth coverage. The best
calendar listings, news and resources. In short... a useful community
- built upon YOUR participation! As a result of this abundant, rich
community, FCN will offer visitors access to an unparalleled archive
and library of stories, reviews, anecdotes, interviews… and of course,
artworks… all rich in history, inspiration and creativity. We welcome
Because we at
FCN, like so many others, (artists and public alike) have been frustrated
by the lack of proper attention to, and -improper classifications
of, our field.We were tired of getting search results for children's
craft projects when we searched "Fine Craft".
Because we think
that this is some of the coolest stuff on the planet, and more people
should know about it!
Because we believe
in the incredible potential of the Internet… the trends, the growth,
it's continual integration into our lives. We want to be a part
of that… and make everyone's life easier doing it!
is currently active (you're here aren't you!?), and operating as
a test and development vehicle for the full portal version, which
we expect to launch in mid to late this year.
needn't wait on the Portal to take advantage of our Hosting Services
or Directory Listings! We are signing non-commerce, Directory, and
Advertiser accounts now, and are expecting to go "live"
with commerce websites later this year. Will you be one of them?
currently occupies its own slice of cyberspace, its people are currently
headquartered in Chicago, IL. As we continue to grow, there will
be local Field Representatives who will help keep our offerings
the very best and most extensive possible…on the cutting edge… including
services like Virtual Studio Tours, chat, and more!
