Overview

For 75 years, the Penland School has attracted the greatest minds in crafting, and now its artists have created a real jewel of a collection.

From the premier academy for fine crafting comes a third showstopper: a splendidly photographed guide that offers a combination of how-to manual, gorgeous coffee table book, and reflective essays. On breathtaking display are the skills and works of 10 contemporary jewelers who have taught at the school; each artist possesses a special expertise that makes him or her a leader in the field. From John Cogswell's handsome forged metal to Heather White's innovative casting, from Marilyn daSilva's unique use of color to Doug Harling's meticulous granulation of fine gold, the material here is eye-opening and inspirational. Their combined knowledge, thoughtful writing, and stunning pieces make for a one-of-a-kind volume that will aid both jewelers and collectors, and astonish anyone who loves jewelry.

    Wonderfully recommended

    If you like feeling like you have been in a personal 'technique' interview with each artist, you will love this book. I found it very interesting learning about how each artist and how they arrived at where they were. They had struggles and learning experiences just as I do. Each artist also has an individual project to share. I look forward to trying some of these projects. This book was great for me because it verified they creating is a journey and they you only improve with application.
