Full Description

Initiated by Hans Schullin and directed by Fritz Maierhofer – both of them driven by the same passion for artistic jewellery – the Design Workshop Schmuck took place in Graz between 1991 and 1998. Based on the idea of creating an additional alternative to the existing training in Austria, internationally renowned guest professors, such as David Watkins, Giampaolo Babetto and Gijs Bakker, were invited to develop projects with the jewellery artists and goldsmiths in attendance. More than sixty jewellery pieces by students and teachers can be found in this exceptional collection, which was exhibited for the first time in the Museum im Palais in Graz in 2012. The catalogue includes all details about the collection, interviews and artists’ CVs, as well as a text on contemporary jewellery from the 1990s.

Text in English and German.

About the Author

David Nelson Wren started his career as a newspaper reporter and features writer in his native Texas. A darling of the Dallas social scene, he moved to Philadelphia in the late 1980s and soon found himself at Ardrossan as a guest of Hope Montgomery Scott. In short order he was welcomed into the tight-knit world of Philadelphia society, becoming involved in local charities and community organisations. By the late 1990s the idea for a book about Ardrossan was conceived, and Wren, by then a trusted Montgomery friend, was given unfettered access to the family archive. Since 2013, Wren has lived in Trumansburg, New York. He writes a column for the Ithaca Journal and together with his partner of twenty-three years operates Halsey House, noted as one of the best inns in the Finger Lakes region. Ardrossan represents the culmination of almost two decades of research.
