b. Austria, 1927; maintains a studio in England

There is a variety and richness to the elegant jewelery of Gerda Flöckinger. Using high carat gold, unusual stones, pearls and colored diamonds, she creates beautiful jewels that are both sculptural and majestic. A pioneer in every right, Flöckinger has reinvented – and continues to invent – fusion techniques on an elaborate and sophisticated level from the early 1960’s. Her meticulous control and intense emotional involvement with her work enable an impossibly fine balance between line, texture, metal and stone, yet the results appear stunningly effortless. Sensual, fluid, tactile, her jewellery gives immense pleasure to both wearer and viewer – instinctive artist, consummate creator, she is passionatey individual in all aspects of her creativity. She was the first living female designer to have an exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1971 and had another exhibition at the V & A in 1986. In 1991, she was recognized by Queen Elizabeth for her contribution to the arts and was awarded the title of CBE. Her work – with its beautiful colours and rich and subtle textures – is now at its most integrated and refined. Always marked by its expressive freedom, her jewellery also has an extraordinary physical presence. It is her instinct and vision, her belief in visual enrichment of the highest order, which makes her such a remarkable artist.

Statement

My first real journey to Italy in 1951 was a revelation and had a profound effect on me. The following year I saw the Biennale and Ravenna, and it was there that I knew I wanted to learn to make jewellery in a modern way.
