June Schwarcz: Invention and Variation

(Friday) (Sunday)

June Schwarz (1918–2015) established herself as the foremost enamelist in the country, known for her unorthodox approach to create innovative sculptural forms in glass and metal. She quickly mastered the craft from her first forays in the 1950s and began to push the envelope of what was thought possible in this ancient medium. Schwarcz was remarkably productive throughout her career, working up until her death at ninety-seven. Her vessels defy categorization, each one different from the last but all maintaining her distinctive combinations of texture and color. Her work is influenced by a multitude of sources from Japanese ceramics and textiles, Scandinavian design, and the California arts and crafts movement.June Schwarz (1918–2015) established herself as the foremost enamelist in the country, known for her unorthodox approach to create innovative sculptural forms in glass and metal.
