Robert W. Ebendorf; The Work in Depth

by Caroline Gore (Author), Lena Vigna (Author), Bruce W. Pepich (Author)

Robert W. Ebendorf (1938- ) has been a critical figure in contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing for over five decades - as skilled at creating a vibrant and powerful community of makers and supporters as he is at making innovative and provocative work. With two essays and an interview with the artist as well as over 35 images, this book explores Ebendorf's work and philosophy in depth, as seen through the collection of the Racine Art Museum (RAM).

Ebendorf, who is represented at RAM by over 40 pieces, has also donated works by other artists - reflecting a generous nature that has helped the museum build its contemporary art jewelry collection. This spirit of sharing and networking characterizes Ebendorf's approach to life, the field of contemporary craft, and his own work. Both the museum and the field-at-large are better, stronger places thanks to Ebendorf's willingness to invest his time, energy and heart.

Get the book at your favorite book store, by calling the RAM Museum Store at 262.638.8200 and via  Amazon.

For those in the Asheville, NC area, the wonderful Mora Gallery under Marthe LeVan's leadership hosts Robert Ebendorf for an artist reception, pop-up exhibition, and book signing on October 11 from 2-5PM. The event is free, open to the public, and all are welcome!

This is wonderful !!! Robert Ebendorf is just the best!

Yay! Fantastic. I'm actually a bit surprised that this book didn't exist before now and I will be buying it for sure. 

Thanks for posting this.

When will it be in the uk?
That's a great question, Rebecca. I have ordered a book to see who the publisher is, distribution would be something for them to respond to. As soon as I have the book, I will let you all know.

You could request it via Amazon UK but that could take ages. Maybe there's a bookseller specializing in art books close by ? Or somebody returning from the US taking a stack with them?
I will find out what it takes to ship 1 book for starters. Will let you all know ASAP.

I received the book yesterday and went to the post office this morning. First Class Mail will take 1-2 weeks and is the cheapest way to go. This package is not trackable, so you will just have to wait until it shows up. Here we go:

Book Cost: $35.00

Shipping to me: $3.99

First Class Mail to the UK: $22.30

Total $61.29

If anyone is interested in this book, I ask that you pay me $65 flat (the difference will take care of any paypal or cc charges I incur on my end and leaves me with the actual amount I am paying to buy and ship), provide me with your address and I will get this on the way for you asap.

Contact me directly via email crafthauseditor@live.com. I'd be happy to help!
