ANNE BULMER BREWER, a lifelong artist whose career also includes decades as a systems engineer, is a relative newcomer to the world of Art Jewelry.

Since 2007 she has been drawn to ancient metalsmithing techniques of Asia and the Mediterranean. Aesthetically and philosophically Anne’s art explores the world of nature and the precepts of “Wabi Sabi.”

Anne’s work is inspired by nature’s “perfect imperfection.” It embraces the spirit of nature and the transformation of precious metal in both and abstract -- and sometimes literal -- expressions of nature.

Anne’s work is characterized by several ancient techniques:
• Keum Boo (Korea),
• Hori and Zougan, in particular, Nanako-Hori (Japan)
• Granulation (Mesopotamia) and
• Etching (early Renaissance Europe).
Anne is passionate about employing ancient techniques while embracing the energy of today’s modern aesthetic to create timeless expressions of nature in jewelry and art.

Oh, Anne. Thank you for you comment. You already made my day even though it is only about 10:00 in the morning now in Japan :)

I am more than welcome to talk about Japanese culture with you with hoping it will help you to get to know more about what you like! So your mom was actually living in Japan ! I think now it is time for you to come to Japan ! I did not really recognize anything good about my own country until I left to the states. Now I love both countries. I mean, I view all countries in the world as a one big community where I want to share the happiness all together ! Thank you again for being my friend here !!

Hi Anne, your work is very inspirational, I like it.
 
 
 

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.

Rachel and Brigitte got started on their own cooperation. Follow along and comment.

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
