a short blurb bio from off craftcouncil org (A GREAT
SITE!!) one of the many sites that have bios on this
Born in 1918 in Denver. June Schwarcz studied and worked
in industrial design before a book on enamels inspired
her to change her artistic focus. She soon began
experimenting with different construction techniques and
surface treatments, such as etching, electroforming, and
engraving, to create forms which she then covered with
transparent enamels. Her inventive manipulation of
materials continues to be a hallmark of her work.
Schwarcz attended the University of Colorado (1938), the
University of Chicago (1939), and the Pratt Institute,
New York (1939-41). She was among the first enamel
artists featured in an exhibition at the Museum of
Contemporary Crafts in 1959 (now the Museum of Arts and
Design, New York), and has continued to push the
boundaries of her medium. Her work is in the collections
of the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, and the
Zurich Design Museum, among others worldwide. In 2010
she was recognized as a Living Treasure by the
California state legislature. June Schwarcz lives and
maintains a studio in California. She received the
American Craft Council’s Gold Medal in 1996.
