Allan Adler the Jewelry Maker
This Allan Adler Bracelet Vase combines the jeweler’s bracelet with my wood vase. Allan Adler from Hollywood was known as the “Jeweler to the Stars” in the 1930’s. Whenever I come across his bracelets I try to purchase them. Then I integrate them into my Woodturning Art. I turn a wood vase with a recess to accept the silver bracelet as a feature to the vase. Here is a little history on this artist.
This Bracelet Vase features a silver rim around the top edge. This is a great jewelry keeper. Perfect on a nightstand for rings, cufflinks, earrings and most importantly the holder for this beautiful sterling silver braceleT.
I often wonder what Allan would think about our collaboration. His bracelet and my vase for the Allan Adler Bracelet Vase. We are not relatives, but I do appreciate his wonderful jewelry. I would have enjoyed the opportunity to have meet him.
Perhaps one day I will be famous for my wood bracelets. My color pencil bangles are certainly destined to be classics. Take a look and let me know what you think.
Sources of Inspiration
One of themes that often emerges from my art is the inspiration I get from other artists like Allan. Matisse is the master who intrigues me the most. His lines are so pure and simple and form the most beautiful images. When he became ill and could no longer paint he cut paper stencils. Images of leaves, dancers, flower and birds. I borrow these items to carve and paint onto wood. Here is a link to one of my favorite pieces.
Other artists who inspire me are Magritte, Stella and Picasso. Nature is also place I draw from and can be seen in my sea urchins and seed pod series.
I design and produce all my items in my studio in Montvale, New Jersey, USA.
