About The Artist

 

An Oregon native who worked in Paris, San Francisco, and Venice, California, throughout her career Claire Falkenstein worked in various mediums including sculpture, painting, printmaking, wallpaper, and jewelry. Falkenstein, with her monumental metal sculptures and smaller jewelry pieces sculpted from gold, silver, platinum, bronze, copper, and steel, ignored popular trends at the time. While working in Italy in the 1950s, she devised a “Kiln Fusing” technique that joined Murano glass with copper, resulting in twisted and transparent forms she dubbed Fusions. This technique became synonymous with her creative process and influenced her experimental jewelry-making and sculpture production. Many of her works reside in the permanent collections of American and international museums, including San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
