MUMBAI.- Esther Brinkmann (b) 1953, the Swiss born celebrated jewellery designer will showcase her new works in the exhibition Renewable Pleasures: The India Chapter, at Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai, India, this July 28, 2014. The exhibition presenting unique handmade neckpieces, rings and brooches complimented in precious material, will run until August 23, 2014. 

Professionally trained in Geneva, Esther’s latest solo exhibitions include, East West - DONG XI, Feigallery, Guangzhou, 2010 Clouds and other dreams of Jewels, GOELIA 225 Space, Guangzhou, 2009, Not for your body only, Feigallery, Guangzhou, 2008. Her works have been presented in Entfesselt – Schmuck ohne Grenzen, Museum Bellerive, Zurich, CH, 2012, Décor, Design et Industrie, les arts appliqués à Genève, Musée d’Art et d’Histoire, Genève, CH, 2010/11, from hand to hand, mudac, Museum of contemporary design and art, Lausanne, CH, 2008. 

From 2005 to 2010 she lived in China and from 2010 to 2014 she has lived in India. These long “residencies” have occurred being the wife of a Swiss Diplomat. Both countries, China and India with strong cultural identities have in their own way fed new ideas into Brinkmann’s timeless yet contemporary forms. 

In India, Brinkmann worked with a master craftsman who is an expert in traditional inlay work found in traditional Indian Jewellery. Kamal meenakar and Brinkmann exchanged ideas of colour, which she incorporated into her existing forms. 

Renewable Pleasures: The India Chapter marks the end of her four years expedition in India at Chemould Prescott Road. Her upcoming participation will be at Multiple Exposures, Museum of Art and design, New York later this year.

Objet de lettré, influencé par l'art de l'orfèvrerie, ce pot à pinceau s'inspire des coupes en argent, à poucier et anse annulaire. C'est un des premiers exemple de ce type d'accessoire de lettré.
