Masters of New Jewellery Design: Eclat
Masters of New Jewellery Design:
Masters of New Jewellery Design offers a bold and daring look at the intriguing and fascinating world of contemporary jewellery design through some of the field’s most prominent international artists and emerging new talents. They present their latest designs while reflecting upon the meaning of their work, their use of techniques and materials, their life experiences and their sources of inspiration. The result is as extensive and international as it is intimate and personal. The pages of this book show the beauty of everyday materials—paper, recycled wood or plastics, rubber, bone, charcoal—which can often be combined with other, more traditional ones but which also have their own aesthetic value. Jewellery freed itself some time ago from many of its technical constraints and it does not just use the jeweller's own methods. Rather, it has investigated the heritage of other crafts and other technologies to integrate them based on the artistic language that each creator wants to develop. The contributors include: Anastasia Young, Anthony Roussel, Beth Legg, Jacqueline Ryan (UK), Adam Grinovich (USA)
