Julie Cohn Design uses old-world casting techniques to create modern artifacts. Made in America, each piece has been carved in wax by the designer, and finished by hand in Dallas. The collection is primitive, yet modern in style, juxtaposing refined elements with rough organic shapes. The collection is cast in Ancient Bronze and sterling silver, and combined with semi-precious stones. Designs cast in Ancient Bronze are sealed to maintain their luster. All earring posts, backs, and wires are gold-filled.
Julie Cohn has lived and worked as an artist and designer in Dallas, Texas for 30 years. Educated as a painter and printmaker and influenced by 20th century sculptors Noguchi, Calder, and Brancusi who drew their inspiration from primitive ethnic form and crafts. Her pieces are about possibilities for layering and stacking to create one-of-a-kind collages or small sculptures that uniquely juxtapose disparate elements with simple elegance.
