Dr. Kevin Coates is considered by many to be Britain's leading artist-goldsmith who creates virtuoso jewels in gold, precious stones, shells, and other exotic materials. This beautiful publication has been produced especially for Kevin Coates' ambitious new project, 'A Bestiary of Jewels' - pairing a creature with its significant human, with the jewel mounted in a bestiary 'page', in a poetic elaboration on the theme of the medieval encyclopaedias known as Bestiaries. "The jewels of Kevin Coates seem to belong to the world of Hermetic mystery... pregnant with some message of a new enlightenment, some latter-day revelation within the cosmic order of things which can only be transmitted by means of myth and legend, and the abstractions of mathematics and geometry." Sir Roy Strong Coates's work appears in major private and public collections worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum; the National Museums of Scotland; the British Museum; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Spencer Museum, Kansas University; Cooper-Hewitt (National Design Museum) The Smithsonian Institution, New York; The Silver Trust for No. 10 Downing Street; and the Goldsmiths' Company, London. Essays by Elizabeth Goring and Kevin Coates. 104 pages Softback Full colour 240x320mm
