This groundbreaking exhibition places contemporary jewelry at the intersection of humanity and technology, arousing the spirit of(R)evolution.
Steve Jobs and the twentysomethings who followed him set out to change the world. They did. Now, in that spirit of innovation, 13 celebrated jewelry makers accept the challenge to upend their world’s established rules.
"Technology makes us more creative amplifies what the mind and hands can do together. I like the tension of opposites that (Jobs) exposed. Jewelers and artists do the same"
Ivy Ross, co-curator, accomplished jewelry maker and respected Silicon Valley executive.
Five of the 13 artists represented in Crafted Visions use new technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting.
The contrasts of simplicity and complexity, of art and technology inspire the makers. Those same creative impulses drove Jobs, the legendary founder of Apple, as he made his mark crafting a clear aesthetic, reaching beyond boundaries and breaking barriers.
