Item description for Gerd Rothman: Jewellery by Dorothea Baumer...
Since the early 1970s, gold- and silversmith Gerd Rothman has been reinterpreting traditional jewelry through a playful, intellectual approach. Working with body impressions taken from clients and from persons dear to them, he has crafted one-of-a-kind creations to be worn somewhere in the land between decorative ornament and conceptual art. His 'Family Necklace' contains the individual fingerprints of the members of one family; from another dangles pendants made of chewed gum cast in gold. This monograph of work from 1976 to the present gathers together a chorus of voices: wearers and aficionados of these remarkable objects who offer their reflections, anecdotes, intimate commentaries, and fantasies. Combined with texts by expert authors, they present an enlivened discourse on the jewelry art of Gerd Rothman.
