Biography

No other jeweler approaches making jewelry in the same manner as German Karl Fritsch.  Working with a childlike playfulness and a rebellious irreverence, Fritsch simultaneously embraces and disregards all the historical traditions of his craft. Fritsch boldly pushes the boundaries so far past the point of ridiculousness that they reach the point of profundity, and this wit has made Fritsch a favorite with fine art and jewelry collectors alike. 

Born in 1963, Fritsch began with traditonal Goldsmith's practical training in 1982, followed by studies at the renowned jewelry dept. at the Munich Academny of Fine Arts.  Frisch's works can be found in important private and public collections worldwide, including but not limted to the Stedelijk Museum (NL), the Museum of Arts & Design, (NY- USA), and the Metropolitan museum (NY- USA).
