Artist list

Georg Dobler, Margit Jäschke
When considering the jewelry of Georg Dobler and Margit Jäschke, partners in life as in art, the sheer beauty of each object can obscure the subtle strength of layered meaning. Both utilize structure, surface, texture, and color to create brooches and necklaces of perfect proportion and gestural grace. They each assemble their chosen materials, but where Dobler's 3-D mélanges rely additionally upon negative space or geometric planes of saturated hue, Jäschke opts for visual disparity within dense pictorial imagery. Dobler combines silver and gold with huge faceted gemstones or sleek glass shards to create powerful compositions, while Jäschke juxtaposes metal and minerals with common substances like cardboard, epoxy, lead, and rubber, rendered elegant by her hand. They both derive inspiration from nature - Dobler sometimes combining twigs, buds, or beetles, cast from actual flora and fauna; Jäschke, compositions of organic mother-of-pearl or coral with paper or plastic. Reveling in the joy of life and growth, they each also find poetry in distress and decay.

The couple lives in Halle, Germany. Dobler, an artist of international stature, is a multiple winner of the coveted Herbert Hofmann Prize and is represented in numerous museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Arts and Design, and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Schmuckmuseum, Pforzheim, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and Musée de Beaux-Arts, Montreal, Canada. Jäschke's work is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Grassi Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Leipzig.
