about FineCraftNetwork.com

 The 5 W's… well, 4 of them…

WHAT

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.

Unlike Yahoo!, 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 your input.

WHY

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!

WHEN

FineCraftNetwork.com 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.

However, artists 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?

WHERE

While FineCraftNetwork.com 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!
