MAD about Loot 2019

From April 8-13, I’ll be presenting my designs at @madmuseum’s annual exhibition and sale of one-of-a-kind jewelry at ‘LOOT: MAD About Jewelry.’ This exciting event provides the rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces from some of the most innovative jewelry artists from around the world. Make sure you stop by if you’re in New York City! #LOOT2019

From April 8-13, 2019, the Museum of Arts and Design will present LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, its annual exhibition and sale featuring designs from more than 50 emerging and acclaimed international jewelry artists. Now in its 19th edition, LOOT has become known as the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary artist-made jewelry, where collectors and jewelry enthusiasts have the rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces from some of the most innovative creators in the field.

LOOT is in keeping with the long-standing commitment of the Museum of Arts and Design to present jewelry as an art form. MAD is the only American museum to possess a gallery dedicated to the display of both temporary jewelry exhibits and its own collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry. 

Proceeds from LOOT: MAD About Jewelry benefit the Museum’s exhibitions and education programs.

Two of my automata will be included in Alchemy 5: Transformation in Contemporary Enamel

“Alchemy” is a term that refers to a seemingly magical power of transmutation as well as the ancient chemical philosophy of turning base metal into gold or silver, can apply to enamel as it is magically transformed by heat.

Alchemy 5 is the 17th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition sponsored by The Enamelist Society. The Exhibition highlights the best in contemporary enamels produced in the last two years, showcasing the work of enamelists that demonstrate aesthetic and technical expertise. The Exhibition will be hosted at the University of Oregon in Eugene, from July 31 – August 7, 2019 and then will travel to other venues including the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA.


Several of my pieces are included in the gallery section of the upcoming enameling reference book, The Art of Fine Enameling by Karen Cohen

.The wonderful world of enameling—fusing glass to metal under high-temperature conditions-- is diverse! Practically anything made from enamel-friendly metal can be enameled, from vases to jewelry to buttons to metal mesh and solid forms. In the author’s first book, The Art of Fine Enameling, published in 2002, she explored this world as it was then, but so much knowledge has been gained in the last 17 years that it was definitely time for an update.

Every chapter and project has been completely reviewed, revised, and updated; it’s a whole new book, and one you will want in your reference library. The look and organization is updated, 15 years of experience has been added, about half the projects have changed, and two types of mini-projects to expand your learning experience are included. In addition, each project has a gallery of the work of other artists working in the same technique, to give a view of other ways a technique can look and be used. Classic techniques such as champlevé, cloisonné, and plique-à-jour each have projects, as do newer approaches such as the use of graphite pencil and enameling on steel—21 project lessons in all.
