About This Book

For over twenty years, Ted Muehling’s exquisite jewelry designs have been cult favorites among fashionistas in America and Europe. Muehling’s preoccupations with forms in nature—his jewelry incorporates precious stones and natural pearls—evoke both the natural and the manmade, sensual and tactile in their simplicity. Muehling has expanded his unique vocabulary into porcelain objects, glass, and crystal tableware to critical acclaim. Ted Muehling also introduces Muehling’s ongoing creative partnership with the noted photographer Don Freeman, who has been capturing Muehling’s work and workspaces since the beginning of each of their careers. The result is a stunning presentation in keeping with the poetic vision of the work.
