CONTEMPORARY SWEDISH ART JEWELLERY
Upcoming Title on A+O in October

Modern Swedish jewellery art is often a far cry from what is perceived as typically Swedish. Many new jewellery artists engage in and reflect over problems in today's society. Many have left precious metals behind. This book provides insight on how jewellery art has become part of the art world.

Inger Wästberg has produced a volume that serves as a reference source for curators, collectors, and other artists.

The book consists of a presentation of 31 Swedish jewellery artists from 1990s to today with an introduction by Inger Wästberg and a foreword by David Revere Mc Fadden.

 

From the Publisher:

To be launched 2013

Swedish jewelry – represented by names as Wiwen Nilsson and Torun Bülow-Hübe – had its high days during the 1950s and ’60s. The anti-commercial and anti-decorative political trends in the period after 1968 prevented a new generation. What has happened after modernism? A new generation has emerged, representing the “art jewelry”; jewelry in close connection with, and reflecting other trends in, the artistic field. The new Swedish jewelry artists have often had difficulties being accepted as artists. They stand for a new language of jewelry, using new materials and often reflecting changes in society and environment. Here Inger Wästberg, art historian and collector of contemporary Swedish jewelry, presents 25 of the best contemporary artists illustrated with several examples of their work. A much needed overview of an exiting and challenging art form.

In a state of jazz

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis  (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world. I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
