We miss Lisa Defner –
a hommage to her 90 birthday
This year, on May 17 th, Elisabeth Jesus Gu. Defner would have turned 90 years old. One of our first exhibitions featured her works. She at the time was one of Austria’s most important and best-known jewelry artists.
Defner had a strong formative influence on developments in art jewelry, especially in the 1970s, and was active right up until she died. She always was full of creativity and activity. We miss this warm hearted, creative, various talented and sensitive woman a lot. She lives on in her unforgettable art work.
