Quiet Elegance: The Jewelry of Eleanor Moty—Signed Book

Quiet Elegance: The Jewelry of Eleanor Moty—Signed Book

Eleanor Moty is a seminal figure in the field of contemporary international studio jewelry. In a career that has spanned more than 50 years, she has been both a dedicated practitioner and a devoted teacher who has inspired succeeding generations of artists, collectors, and fellow professionals. She began to attract national attention in the late 1960s and early 1970s for her experiments with photoetching and electroforming metal. Later, mid-career, Moty made what seems like an abrupt shift in style and focus, with more abstract works whose designs were inspired by the natural inclusions within the non-precious gems used in their fabrication. While her works have been published in prominent books, catalogs, and journals internationally, this monograph is the first comprehensive in-depth examination of her career from its inception in 1967 through the present day.

This handsome, fully illustrated volume features thoughtful essays by Helen W. Drutt English, Matthew Drutt, and Bruce W. Pepich, and has even been signed by the artist herself!
