Description

For more than sixty years, June Schwarcz (1918–2015) advanced the art of enameling—fusing glass to metal through a high-temperature firing process—while creating works that combine rich textures and luminous color. Her technical experiments earned her national awards and generations of followers.

June Schwarcz: Invention & Variation celebrates this pioneering artist with fifty-nine full-color plates representing a wide selection of her work, from traditional vessels and boxes to wall-mounted panels and modernist sculpture. An essay by Bernard N. Jazzar and Harold B. Nelson explores her groundbreaking methods and varied sources—including Japanese calligraphy, ancient Peruvian textiles, European painting and sculpture, Islamic architecture, and high fashion.
