Arline Fisch: Retrospective

Arline Fisch is a pioneer in pursuing new avenues of textile techniques in metal with her sculptural objects and jewelry. Fisch's dedication, inventiveness and instruction have influenced a generation of artists. Fisch founded the programs in Jewelry and  Metalsmithing at San Diego State University in 1961, where she taught until 2000. Fisch is renowned for her book "Textile Techniques In Metal", which is considered the ”bible" for anyone wanting to learn about textile techniques in jewelry.
In 1985 Fisch was declared a National Living Treasure by the Resolution of the California State Assembly. Other awards spanning her illustrious career include: two Fulbright grants; Doctor of Humane Letters, Skidmore College; Lifetime Achievement in the Crafts, presented by the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; Gold Medal presented by the American Craft Council; and Distinguished Craft Educator Award presented by the James Renwick Alliance.

Fisch's work is held in numerous museum collections throughout the world, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Arline Fisch's work was recently featured in 'One of a Kind' at the
Mingei International Museum, San Diego, CA (on view June 17, 2017 - January 7, 2018)

Hanne Behrens: Bubbles

Hanne Behrens is a master of textile techniques in metal. She is known for the pure, clean lines of her designs. Using gold and silver wires, she deftly weaves, braids, knits and crochets her exquisitely crafted jewelry. She studied under Arline Fisch and Mary Lee Hu and is a master of textile techniques such as weaving, knitting and plaiting, with gold and silver wire. In 2000 she was commissioned to make a brooch as a gift to Queen Margrethe of Denmark on her 60th birthday. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including Bronze and Silver medals from the Best in Danish Craft and Design exhibition, and has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout Europe and the USA.

Rachelle Thiewes: Duet

My jewelry of recent years explores intense iridescent and color-shifting paints used for eye-catching custom jobs on cars.  A necklace or earrings come alive when the body is in motion.  Tangible movement is implied by the deceptive appearance of collapsing forms, swift color-shifts and the consequences of light.

Miki Asai: Fragments

Miki Asai explores the translucent beauty of seashells, including mother of pearl and eggshells, with glimmering wisps of gold or silver leaf and layered surfaces of Japanese lacquer.
Miki Asai’s jewellery is inspired by intangible and those fleeting and changeable phenomenon, and how this portrays the nature of everything in the world. Her aesthetics and concept are strongly based on her Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in impermanence, imperfection, transience and ephemerality.
She creates jewellery that captures and preserves momentary beauty to own the fragments of a fleeting world, life and everything.
