18 Stances on Contemporary Jewelry and Device Design

Of the over 400 members of the Association for Goldsmiths’ Art (Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst e.V.), the goldsmiths, silversmiths, jewelry designers, metal designers, and artists of the avant-garde scene from around the world are especially important. New members from the past two years exhibit a small selection of the wide, creative spectrum the society entails: Rinaldo Alvarez of Spain uses an old pocket watch in his pendant, Childhood Tears, which he complements with wood, gold leaf, crystal, coral, pearls, and zircon. The Ground plan brooches from Johannes Borst of Nürnberg separate out concrete architectural situations. Isolde Baumhackl-Oswald from Austria explores the many possibilities of alteration in her brooches, Theme with Variations. The brooches of Iris Bodemer, Pforzheim, have a close correspondence between sketched drawings, focusing on the material contrasts between the unusual stones and base materials such as wool, leather, and resin. The forefront aspect of some of the brooches by Britta Rejek, Düsseldorf, is computer-controlled CNC-milling. The small sculptures of Italy native, Fabrizio Tridenti, are implemented with silver or iron in their constructive approach. Martin Spreng of Paris combines uncommon stones and pearls with white gold. Rings, pendants, and necklaces by Mieko Suzuki-Wanner are animated with selected pearls from Akoya, the South Sea, and Tahiti. Walter Wittek's Tension Ring makes it possible to abandon the standard setting for diamonds. In the silver category are bowls with the theme Childs-Play Barbara Amstutz and "folded" bowls and a Tea-Caddy-Spoon LUCK by Maike Dahl. In addition, works by Eva Bauer, Thomas Dierks, Martina Lang, Anna Moll, Isabell Schaupp, Violetta Elisa Seliger and the Albert Wörner Company are represented in the exhibition.
