An engaging survey of the work and ideas of a leading New Zealand jeweller who has been critical to the development of studio craft in Aotearoa. Born in Switzerland, Kobi Bosshard came to New Zealand in 1961. His expertise as a traditionally trained goldsmith is centre stage in this beautifully illustrated book, which is published as part of Objectspace's Masters of Craft series. Written by art historian Damian Skinner, it provides a perceptive and informative discussion of Bosshard's life and work, describing over five decades of contemporary jewellery that explores the possibilities of the craftsperson's role in creating sophisticated and unique objects for people to wear and own. Bosshard's jewellery is represented in museum and gallery collections throughout the country. Although now officially retired from jewellery-making, he continues to create in his Middlemarch workshop.--Inside front cover.
