DESCRIPTION: Wow! Another fabulous find from my recent trip to Northern California. This pin is the stunning creation of Hanna & Jacek Zdanowscy of Poland.
Hanna and Jacek Zdanowski have been designing since 1976. They have participated in both individual and collective exhibitions as well as a number of competitions e.g. review shows and exhibitions in Legnical. They have been awarded several prizes and displayed their work in Germany, the United States, Japan, Scandinavia, Kuwait, Italy...
The Artists' items are designed and exquisitely crafted have found their way to the museums in Legnica and Kazimierz as well as numerous private collections.
What makes their works particularly interesting and appealing is how the artists achieve the modern form of their work by the old masters' techniques combining the precious metal with stone, leather, black coral, amber, black oak, glass, hemp cord...
Hanna and Jacek Zdanowski produce exquisite, unique pieces and also signed series.
The amber cabochon measures approximately 100 carats. It is rare to find such a huge specimen.
