Desert Necklace, 1995

This is a Necklace. It was designed by Peter Hoogeboom. It is dated 1995 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is slip cast and glazed ceramic, silver, cork. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Hoogeboom is influenced by clays that he finds abroad. His work can also be tied to his Dutch heritage, including Delftware. His jewelry can be defined by three elements: simplicity of design, repetition of similar or same forms, and surface texture/treatment. Hoogeboom's necklace with its simple elegance of repeated gourd-shaped forms, demonstrates his dedication to his medium and design aesthetic.
