"Studio jewelry dissolves the modern distinction between decorative and fine arts. The 60 pieces in this lively volume, collected by Donna Schneier and donated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, were created primarily from the early 1960s to the present day and show a fluid engagement with various traditions in jewelry-making--from old masterworks to contemporary pieces--as well as various 20th-century art movements such as Conceptual art, Arte Povera, and Surrealism. Unique by Design draws attention to these dazzling small works of art, most of which have never before been published. Although these pieces incorporate a variety of materials, ranging from the precious to the ordinary, they share some common traits that reflect the collector's tastes: wit, elegance, fantasy, imagination, social observation, and technical virtuosity. Above all, these works were made to be worn and to create a dynamic engagement with a body." -- Publisher's website.

The history of contemporary American metalsmithing is inextricably linked with the academy. Since the 1950s, nearly every significant artist working in metals has trained at a university or art school—fertile ground for innovation and exploration in metalsmithing and jewelry making. The University of Wisconsin-Madison's metals program is among the best in the nation, founded on the teaching legacy of Fred Fenster and Eleanor Moty, who instilled in their students a profound respect for craftsmanship, technical innovation, formal integrity, and thoughtful design. The work in this catalogue encompasses hollowware and jewelry, wearable sculpture, poetic and narrative objects, and conceptual installations. The show at the Chazen Museum of Art was produced by guest curator Jody Clowes

"The Art of jewellery-making has taken many forms, and today the most adventurous and innovative is one in which the values of art and the individual are set above the concerns of fashion, commerce and industry. Emerging as an international movement in the early 1970s, contemporary jewellery is now a well-established category in the art world." "This reappraisal of the nature and role of jewellery is, with gathering momentum, regenerating the ancient art, so that the meaning and purpose of jewellery is being redefined for the present-day world. Contemporary jewellery, as described by these criteria, has become one of the most intensive and absorbing sectors in the international arts." "The Best in Contemporary Jewellery is a snapshot survey of recent work by 64 outstanding artists, craftsmen and designers from 14 countries. Three sections - Idea, Object and Image - offer a unique perspective on their individual attitudes and achievements. Idea is a short portfolio of sketch designs and inspirations from some of the contributors, while Object, the main core of the book, is a gallery show of several works from each artist. The last section, Image, shows a selection of objects against the body." "Beautifully illustrated throughout, The Best in Contemporary Jewellery is a celebration of some of the most outstanding craftsmanship and imagination displayed in recent jewellery-making."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
