Paul Derrez is a jeweller and the owner of the internationally renowned Galerie Ra in Amsterdam. Besides running the gallery he has created an oeuvre in jewellery design, which over the past decade also includes silver work. His Wisselring from 1975 has become a classic. Derrez often links his designs to particular social statements like his Pill-roulette brooches and Condom Monstrance. Self-taught in the art of silversmithing, he remains close to its basic techniques and the function of a design. His fine silver beakers, bowls and boxes are given a touch of colour by the addition of plastic lids or handles.
Paul will be talking about his own work in the context of contemporary European jewellery and his vast experience of contemporary jewellery through the eyes of a gallery owner.
