Artist list

Pavel Opočenský
Pavel Opočensky belongs to the great avant-gardists of the Prague jewellery scene since the 1970’s. His versatile work stands for his very own style of jewellery design. In his numerous brooches, the material experiment is always in the foreground. The refined sanding techniques of jade and the special processing of wood and plastic are shown. It is not unusual for these materials to come from everyday products, which are given a completely new value by the artistic hand. Using extremely sophisticated techniques, Pavel Opočenský works with stainless steel or titanium. It is always fascinating to see what he elicits from titanium, a material that is extremely difficult to handle. His results are not only wearable pieces of jewellery, but go far beyond that as jewellery sculptures.

Thanks to the generous support of Die Neue Sammlung - The Design Museum Munich and the Museum of Applied Arts in Frankfurt as well as private lenders, a broad spectrum of over 40 years of artistic creation can be presented.
