With the exhibition Form and Color—New Directions in Enamel Art, the Society for Goldsmiths’ Art has again turned to a subject that has always been one of its particular interests.

Fourteen participants, both domestic and foreign, accepted the invitation to present their latest pieces of jewelry on the theme of enamel. More than 100 works impressively demonstrate how diverse enamel jewelry can be when the conventional conceptions are thrown overboard. Rather than spotlighting plique-à-jour, cloisonné, champlevé, or glitter enamel, an entirely unencumbered, experimental utilization is exhibited by these pieces.

For many years already, Uta Feiler, Sylke Alma Klopsch, Ralph Bakker, Esther Knobel, Jacqueline Ryan, Jessica Turell, Silke Trekel, Vera Siemund, and Nilton Alves Cunha have placed a high value on experimenting with enamel in their jewelry and have repeatedly found new possibilities for escaping the classic utilization and for setting new accents.

Beate Eismann, Stephanie Fleck, Danni Schwaag, Isabell Schaupp und Tabea Reulecke demonstrate that enamel in jewelry can also be given an amusing or ironic interpretation.

The more classically defined works by Christian Wuytack, who died in 2010, are reminiscent of the prime of enamel art in the 1920’s.
