Playing with fire
FABRICE SCHAEFER | Playing with Fire
A collection of titanium jewellery, a metal that is malleable when heated and exhibits color variations in the presence of flames. Titanium, simultaneously noble, hard, and crystalline, harmoniously blends with the contrasting brilliance of diamonds. These two demanding materials allow me to explore infinite possibilities, including the ability to play with fire.
Fabrice Schaefer graduated from the Geneva School of Applied Arts in 1996 with a diploma in jewelry and has exhibited internationally since then. His work has won several awards, including the Concours fédéral des arts appliqués (the Federal Prize for Applied Arts) in Basel (1998) and has been published widely in publications on jewellery.
Fabrice Schaefer’s work can be found in the collections of the V&A Museum, London, The International Design Museum / Die Neue Sammlung in Munich and MUDAC in Lausanne, among others.
