About this artwork
Trained in the Arts and Crafts tradition of metalworking, Margaret Craver was nonetheless influenced by instructors at Michigan’s Cranbrook Academy of Art, mid-20th-century America’s premier design center. As a result, she created handcrafted hollowware and jewelry out of traditional materials such as sterling silver and enamel, yet she imbued her dynamic pieces with colorful, energetic patterns. In this work, Craver married the smooth surfaces, decorative flourishes, and exquisite workmanship of Scandinavian design with the unified geometry of Art Deco decoration.
