Artist list

Daniel Kruger
South African born artist Daniel Kruger has been making jewelry for over forty years, and is considered one of the leading artists and innovators in the field. Balancing mathematical grids and organic forms, hard and soft surfaces, symmetry and chaos, Kruger focuses on sensual cognition to create pieces that have a distinct erotic quality. Kruger experiments with contrasting texture and bold color, and the passage of light through transparent materials and tessellating patterns, crafting pieces that speak to the history of jewels and treasure, and the tradition of adornment itself.

Daniel Kruger was born in South Africa and currently lives in Germany, where he is a professor at the University for Art and Design in Halle. Kruger’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, and his contribution to contemporary jewelry recognized with awards and distinctions worldwide. He has lectured on jewelry, his work in jewelry and ceramics, and taught workshops around the world. A recent recipient of the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize, his work can be seen in renowned public collections including the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Montreal; Pforzheim Schmuckmuseum im Reuchlinhaus, Germany; Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Montreal; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich Germany; The Hiko Mizuno College of Jewelry, Tokyo; and The Power House Museum, Sydney. Kruger is the subject of the recent monograph Daniel Kruger: Between Nature and Artifice, published by Arnoldsche.
