A Bit Of Clay On The Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry

Thu May 16 to Aug 11, 2013, All Day

Focus Gallery

A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry explores the appeal of ceramics, especially porcelain, in jewelry. Organized by the Fondation d’Entreprise Bernardaud and curated by the renowned German-born goldsmith and jewelry artist, Monika Brugger, the exhibition showcases the versatility and allure of the medium, which can be modeled or cast, used alone or with metal, wood, and stone, and vary in color and texture.

The exhibition presents 140 works and features the work of twenty cutting-edge jewelry artists, including creations by such notables as Peter Hoogeboom (The Netherlands), Ted Noten (The Netherlands), Gésine Hackenberg (Germany), Marie Pendariès (Spain), and Shu-Lin Wu (Taiwan). While some make reference to traditional jewelry in materials and symbolism, others altogether redefine it in substance, form, and matter.
