Curator Jo Bloxham

Fritsch is a German-born, New Zealand-based jewellery designer whose highly sought-after work features in public and private collections around the world. Fritsch’s hand-crafted jewellery is uniquely unconventional and according to exhibition curator Jo Bloxham ‘exudes an energy and fascination unlike that of any other living jeweller today.’ His playful approach combines precious and non-precious materials from gems to rusty screws alike, forging surreal yet perfect creations which push the boundaries of design to its limits.
