Intro
Manfred Bischoff was one of the most important and innovative jewellery artists of the present day. He died in Italy, his second home, in March 2015. Bischoff was born in 1947 in Schömberg in the Black Forest. After an apprenticeship, he studied jewellery design with Reinhold Reiling at the Fachhochschule für Gestaltung (College of Design) in Pforzheim, and goldsmithing with Hermann Jünger at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich. His work is considered unique and stylistically inimitable. Bischoff was highly respected among his fellow goldsmiths.
