ESTHER KNOBEL - SAFETY PIN
Esther Knobel's jewellery is at once cruel and fragile - qualities that she handles like no other designer. Here she uses random electroforming to create growths on everyday safety pins. The result is an industrial product that can be serially produced, even though no two items are identical.
Esther Knobel was born in Poland in 1949 and emigrated to Israel in 1951. She lives and works in Jerusalem. She studied at that city's Bezalel Academy of Art and Design from 1970 to 1974 and at London's Royal College of Art from 1975 to 1979, when she received her MA in Jewellery Design. She taught at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in 1985-91 and at the Shenkar College of Textile Technology and Fashion in Ramat Gan in 1993-95. Her awards include the Bezalel Prize of Excellence, 1974 and the Françoise van den Bosch Prize, 1994. Her jewellery can be found in the collections of numerous international museums, including the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Vienna, the Craft Board of the Australia Council, Sydney, and the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
