Art Gallery Opening-FeRROUS

January 22, 2014 - March 08, 2014 at Art Gallery

Velvet da Vinci and online design blog crafthaus are proud to present FERROUS, an exhibition of jewelry using iron, steel, and steel alloys. This show will travel to the IU Kokomo Art Gallery in Jan 2014. Although the use of iron dates back more than two thousand years, this humble material is more commonly used for agriculture and industrial purposes than adornment. A significant exception is the Berlin Iron Jewelry of the early 19th century. The Prussian Royal family funded the uprising against Napoleon by encouraging wealthy citizens to exchange their precious gold and silver for intricately fabricated iron jewelry.
