Zbigniew Chojnacki, Untitled, ca. 1992, fabricated concrete, stainless steel, sterling silver, and gold, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Zack Peabody, 2000.62.5
Many of Zbigniew Chojnacki's jewelry designs are inspired by buildings or machines, and here he combined precious metals with concrete and stainless steel to create a decorative brooch. The fine gold posts create a guardrail around the top of the small slab of concrete, as if Chojnacki had sliced this piece from the roof of a tiny warehouse. The architectural design and industrial materials recall his childhood spent in the sprawling shipbuilding port of Gdansk.
