Susan Cohn pushes the limits of the definition of jewelry yet preserves its core role of adornment by making objects that can be worn on the body. Her work, with its stark functionalist aesthetic and fastidious detailing, is strongly motivated by pleasure in the play of form, material, and color. Materials are juxtaposed unexpectedly and ideas collide to release humor and irony.Essays include an examination of Susan Cohn's work and workshop practice, and an appreciation by a long-time admirer. These are set alongside full-color images of her jewelry that invariably surprise.
