||"Robert W. Ebendorf (1938- ) has been a critical figure in contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing for over five decades-- as skilled at creating a vibrant and powerful community of makers and supporters as he is at making innovative and provocative work. With two essays and an interview with the artist as well as over 35 images, this book explores Ebendorf's work and philosophy in depth, as seen through the collection of the Racine Art Museum (RAM). Ebendorf, who is represented at RAM by over 40 pieces, has also donated works by other artists - reflecting a generous nature that has helped the museum build its contemporary art jewelry collection. This spirit of sharing and networking characterizes Ebendorf's approach to life, the field of contemporary craft, and his own work. Both the museum and the field-at-large are better, stronger places thanks to Ebendorf's willingness to invest his time, energy and heart."--inside flap.
