John Paul Miller '40, a master jeweler also skilled in industrial design and photography, taught here at his alma mater from 1944 to 2000.

Plain Dealer Raves about John Paul Miller Show at CMA

A retrospective of the work of the octogenarian jeweler and Cleveland Institute of Art alumnus John Paul Miller ’40 has been on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) since June. In tribute, an article in Sunday’s issue of the Plain Dealer profiled this master artist and his “sublime” work.

Miller's stunning creations, many in gold and enamel, range from crustacean shapes to abstractions inspired by natural forms and patterns. He is well known for his rediscovery of the forgotten ancient metalsmithing technique of granulation, which ancient Egyptians and Asians used to attach beads of gold to a gold surface without the use of solder.

See John Paul Miller’s work in CMA's Betty and Max Ratner gallery until January 2, 2011. Read more about the artist and see images of his work at cleveland.com.
