Eugenie Keefer Bell
(born San Diego, CA 1951)
Eugenie Keefer Bell is interested in the way that ideas are transmitted and changed across cultures. She draws inspiration from nature and her frequent trips to Japan, where she is awed by the glimpses of the distant past that unexpectedly emerge in modern life. Bell works primarily in silver and makes simple designs that involve a delicate balance of form, line, and surface. She left the United States in 1981 and currently lives and works in Australia.
