The Jewelry Of Ken Cory

by Ben Mitchell, The Jewelry Of Ken Cory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Jewelry Of Ken Cory books, Ken Cory was an iconoclast, punster, collector, and extraordinary jewelrymaker and metalsmith. Participating in the California funk art scene of the 1960s, then teaching more than 20 years in Washington State, Cory (1943-1994) was one of the artistic forces who propelled the Pacific Northwest to the forefront of contemporary jewelry. Ken Cory: Jewelry from a Modern Alchemist is a comprehensive overview of Cory's work, which is considered in the context of trends in contemporary art as well as developments in the field of metal-smithing and jewelry. The book, which includes a glossary of metalworking terms, is a substantial contribution to a field of art and craft with few resources to date.

Unique By Design Contemporary Jewelry In The Donna Schneier Collection

by Ramljak, Suzanne, Unique By Design Contemporary Jewelry In The Donna Schneier Collection Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Unique By Design Contemporary Jewelry In The Donna Schneier Collection books, "Studio jewelry dissolves the modern distinction between decorative and fine arts. The 60 pieces in this lively volume, collected by Donna Schneier and donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, were created primarily from the early 1960s to the present day and show a fluid engagement with various traditions in jewelry-making--from old masterworks to contemporary pieces--as well as various 20th-century art movements such as Conceptual art, Arte Povera, and Surrealism. Unique by Design draws attention to these dazzling small works of art, most of which have never before been published. Although these pieces incorporate a variety of materials, ranging from the precious to the ordinary, they share some common traits that reflect the collector's tastes: wit, elegance, fantasy, imagination, social observation, and technical virtuosity. Above all, these works were made to be worn and to create a dynamic engagement with a body." -- Publisher's website.

The Jewelry Of Ideas

by Ursula-Ilse Neuman, The Jewelry Of Ideas Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Jewelry Of Ideas books, Radical developments in jewelry from across the world, from traditional metalsmithing to computer-aided design The Jewelry of Ideasis published in conjunction with Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum's exhibition celebrating gifts from the Susan Grant Lewin Collection of Contemporary Jewelry. This renowned collection, built by the New York-based Lewin over several decades and recently donated to Cooper Hewitt, captures the diversity and achievements of art, or studio, jewelry with nearly 150 significant works by designers from the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The brooches, necklaces and rings--the majority of which were made in the last 15 years--reveal how these contemporary jewelers have revolutionized the medium. Many take their cues from age-old jewelry conventions but transform them into expressions of our time. Others confront social, political or highly personal concerns using unconventional materials and techniques that range from traditional metalsmithing to computer-aided design. Among the more than 100 featured designers are Giampaolo Babetto, Gijs Bakker, Friedrich Becker, David Bielander, Iris Eichenberg, Eva Eisler, Sandra Enterline, Arline Fisch, Thomas Gentille, Herman Hermsen, John Iversen, Daniel Jocz, Herman Jünger, Jiro Kamata, Otto Künzli, Bruno Martinazzi, Bruce Metcalf, Dorothea Prühl, Wendy Ramshaw, Joyce Scott, Kiff Slemmons and Art Smith. Descriptions of specific works demonstrate that while the mastery of materials and techniques is critical to the creative process, it is not an end in itself, but only the means to accomplish an aesthetic vision. Process statements from each designer and a full gallery of the jewelry accompany the narrative sequence of extraordinary, stirring, uncommon pieces from this consummate collection.
