The Jewelry and Metalsmithing Survey is an annual international survey highlighting the best new jewelry and metals work in contemporary art, architecture, crafts and design created in the previous year by emerging and established artists, as well as students, selected by a jury of experts including curators, artists, designers, gallery owners and historians. In showcasing approximately 200 juried objects, the publication features the wide range of current ideas and making practices in the field of jewelry and metals. The jurors for this Volume 1 were Vivian Beer, a furniture designer/maker based in New England, whose sleek, abstracted metal and concrete furniture is in the collections of many museums and cities; Cornelie Holzach, Director of the Pforzheim Jewellery Museum, Pforzheim, Germany; and Alan Revere, an award-winning jewelry designer and one of the most prominent jewelry educators in the US. Barbara M. Berk’s “Lace Four: No Loose Ends” is a hanging sculpture, created with phosphor bronze wire using Bobbin Lace, a fiber technique that dates to the Renaissance.
