New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
June 15, 2010
The Cleveland Museum of Art presents its first retrospective of the work of John Paul Miller, Cleveland jeweler and 1940 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art.
On June 16 the Cleveland Museum of Art presents its first retrospective of the work of the octogenarian Cleveland jeweler and CIA alumnus John Paul Miller ’40.
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.
Also skilled in industrial design and photography, Miller taught here at his alma mater from 1944 to 2000.
The exhibition of his work will be on view in CMA’s Betty and Max Ratner Gallery from June 16 until January 2, 2011.
