Kobi Bosshard Goldsmith
Kobi Bosshard: Goldsmith is a survey of the work and ideas of a leading New Zealand jeweller who has been critical to the development of studio craft in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Kobi Bosshard was born in Switzerland and came to New Zealand in 1961. His expertise as a traditionally trained goldsmith is centre stage in this beautifully illustrated book, published as part of Objectspace’s Masters of Craft Series.
Written by art historian Damian Skinner, Kobi Bosshard: Goldsmith provides a perceptive and informative discussion of Bosshard’s life and work, describing over five decades of contemporary jewellery that explores the possibilities of the craftsperson’s role in creating sophisticated and unique objects for people to wear and own.
