Keith Lo Bue - FORK AND TIE BROOCH

























You are bidding on a brooch sure to stir the soul. From the bench of established and well travelled jeweller Keith Lo Bue, this piece is an amalgam of mysterious materials and stories.

Title: Untitled (fork & tie)
Materials: Victorian fork, upholstery tack, waxed linen thread, fused glass, steel wire, dichroic glass, paper, paint.
Dimensions: 75 x 45 x 17mm

Keith says:
"Untitled (fork & tie)' continues my exploration of found imagery, in this case a daguerreotype from 1853. The image has been kiln-fused on opaque glass and set into a Victorian fork. The use of waxed linen thread to tie and lash the work hearkens back to the pre-industrial-age penchant for repairing tools and implements in any way to extend their use."

Keith Lo Bue is a jeweller, sculptor, teacher and self-described 'stuffsmith' who has work in many major collections, including the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC and the Museum of Arts & Design in New York. For over two decades his work has been exhibited all around the US and in Germany, Australia, New Zealand, France, Ireland and England. Dozens of books feature Lo Bue's work, including One of a Kind: American Art Jewelry Today (US), 1000 Rings (Lark), The Art & Craft of Collage (UK), the Virtual Gallery of Contemporary Jewellery CD-ROM (UK) and The Compendium Finale Of Contemporary Jewellery Makers (Germany) as well as Metalsmith, American Craft, Ornament and Belle Armoire Jewelry magazines (US). His workshops have been presented to enthusiastic reviews at Haystack, Penland and scores of other art and craft institutions across the United States, Canada and Australia. Lo Bue lives and works in Sydney.
