Sneak Peek at “LOOT: MAD About Jewelry” Annual Week-Long Exhibition

By Alexis Thrower

September 25, 2015

The Museum of Arts and Design will be hosting its annual weeklong event, “LOOT: MAD About Jewelry,” showcasing 55 international contemporary jewelry designers next week. The six-day show has become a top destination for jewelry collectors and enthusiasts alike, as patrons can expect to not only shop but also learn about the designers, materials used, and how it was made.

“This year’s featured artists represent a remarkably diverse assortment of backgrounds, materials and nationalities. Together, they provide a sense of the field’s wide-ranging possibilities and continued advancement,” says LOOT Curator Bryna Pomp. Some of the designers chosen by Pomp to be featured in this year’s event are Canadian jeweler Lauren Klassen, known for turning ordinary objects like paperclips and keys into 14 karat gold pieces; New Zealand-based designer Debbie Adamson, whose jewelry is unexpectedly, yet brilliantly created out of rubber; Japanese designer Yu Hiraishi’s movement-inspired small, metal pieces, some of which are a part of the museums permanent collection; and two recent alumnae from the Pratt Institute’s acclaimed studio jewelry program, Fangding “Andie” Xu and Casey Sobel.
