Ebbe Weiss-Weingart: 70 Years of Jewellery
Ebbe Weiss-Weingart is one of the pioneers of international studio jewelry. For over seventy years she has enriched the contemporary jewelry scene with her diverse works. Her inception in the 1950s and 1960s with structured surfaces and galvanised sculptured pieces will never be forgotten. Alongside figurative motifs - in particular, her portrayals of humans and animals - she also created pieces with an ironic and quirky touch. In her last phase of creativity, which began in the 1990s, she had a penchant for working with jewelry made from Chinese jade reliefs. Around 200 illustrations of these jewelry objects documents her award-winning work, and along with previously unpublished photographic material, expands on her hitherto unknown accomplishments.
