Full Description
The ring is a significant cultural reference in our society: it bears a coveted diamond or is a symbol of togetherness. This is not the case with Bernhard Schobinger! His objects created over the last 45 years reflect artistic and social developments. The ring as the witness of an era: concrete art, the aesthetics of punk, postmodernism and so on. Bernhard Schobinger is one of the most provocative, critical, and artistically inspiring contemporary jewellery artists, who has revolutionised his craft. He has turned away from conventional materials, in favour of those that have an emotional quality or a conceptual value. He interprets the piece of jewellery as a contemporary witness of our society. The book is based on an overview of nearly all the rings that Bernhard Schobinger has created over the last 45 years. It is conceived as a reference work and documents nearly half a century of the design and creative power of this Swiss artist.
