Edited by Barbara Vinken

Paperback / softback

Description

o A delightful journey through Norman Weber's world of fantastic, colorful and witty jewelry Perhaps Norman Weber - as a native of Schwabisch Gmund - was born with a love of jewelry.

Following a traditional training as a gold and silversmith in Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz, where he teaches today at the State Vocational College for Glass and Jewellery, he studied with professors Hermann Junger, Otto Kunzli and Horst Sauerbruch at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.

Norman Weber is the storyteller in the contemporary studio jewelry scene.

For example with the brooches from his series "Portraits", which investigates cliches such as Barbie dolls.

Focusing on a particular area of interest - popular images, comics and populist icons - the artist enmeshes the images in perfectly executed constructions .

But Norman Weber not only tells stories. Other pieces are shaped by underlying constructivist elements - convincing jewelry because their mechanical elements are infused with an exciting dynamic.

This monograph provides a first survey of the oeuvre of this talented jewelry master. Weber's designs are on exhibition in the Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus Hanau from 2nd September 2010 and further venues thereafter, in Munich and Schwabisch Gmund.
