Elegant fantasy: the jewelry of Arline Fisch
Arnoldsche, Mar 1, 2000 - Crafts & Hobbies - 143 pages
This is the first monograph of Arline Fisch, the leading American creator of jewellery as art. It introduces the most important aspects of her work: full-body jewellery which covers the wearer's body like armour; recurrent motifs like fans, feathers and animals and, finally, something that is has employed in making jewellery. Since the early 1970s she has been processing metals, mainly gold and silver, like fabric. This technique, hitherto unknown in the field of jewellery making, has now become part of the standard repertoire of contemporary jewellery designers. More than 100 brilliant colour photographs i illustrate the spectacular work of this innovative artist, reveling the impact jewellery and clothing metal and fabric have on each other in her work.
