Lisa and Scott Cylinder first met while they were students in jewellery and goldsmithing at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Since 1988, they have been successfully co-directing their art jewellery studio while pursuing a teaching career. Their work is regularly featured in publications such as METALSMITH magazine, the Lapidary Journal, American Craft, the Lark Jewelry Books (500 Brooches, 500 Necklaces, 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs, 500 Gemstone Jewels). They live and work in Oley, Pennsylvania.
REENCHANTING THE REALITY
The artistic approach of Lisa and Scott Cylinder is guided by their unconditional respect of materials, by the work of the hand but also by their fascination for objects of all kinds (found objects, tools, musical instruments) that they deconstruct and take out of their original context to reinterpret them in post-modern compositions.
SEE THEIR WORKS ?
Their works are in numerous museums and private collections: the Racine Art Museum, Racine (WI), the Museum of Contemporary Arts & Design (NY), The Gregg Museum at North Caroline State University, (NC), and the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) “Bird in Hand” Miniature Collection (MD).
The gallery will show a selection of their original works at the occasion of Paris Design Week and of Parcours Bijoux 2017, as part of the exhibition entitled "Triptych: Life, Love, Death".
