While a young man studying ad design, I fell hopelessly in love. Her name was Modernism and I coveted her paintings, architecture and jazz album covers. But I especially loved her fashion sense.
Years later, unable to think of anything but Modernism, I left advertising to create jewelry for her. Easier said than done: If I chose to melt and cast precious metals, their high cost would limit me to the simple, basic shapes of Minimalism. For the more complex geometries honoring Art Deco, Bauhaus and Constructivism, I'd need another metal and process. The metal I found was surgical stainless steel. The process was etching.
Now is the time for a lighter, more affordable modern. Now is the time for a clever, more sophisticated modern.
Now is the time for dis rupt mod ern.
