Jan Baum, Structure, 1996, gold, silver, bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 1996, Jan Patrice Baum, Gift of Richard L. Ford, Jr. in honor of Jan Baum, 1999.95
Jan Baum often uses the theme of containment in her work, making multilayered objects that can be opened or disassembled to reveal their interior. In this piece, a heavy gold pendant rests inside a silver cage. The wire structure protects the pendant while at the same time complementing its simple design.
