Artist bio: E. Douglas Wunder gravitated toward metalsmithing and jewelry design as a student at the University of Iowa, developing a unique style focused on abstract imagery with the use of titanium and cold connections. He graduated in 1989 and started his career by wholesaling jewelry at galleries, museum gift shops, and special- interest stores. During the late 1990s he transitioned into selling jewelry directly to art patrons at arts and crafts events. He has shown his work at top-rated craft shows and art festivals across the country, including the Atlanta Contemporary Jewelry Show, Longs Park Art Festival, and the Ann Arbor Original Art Fair. His Orchid Neckpiece won a 2018 Saul Bell Design Award. He enjoys mentoring Kutztown University student interns and traveling to conduct workshops with colleges, art centers, and metalsmithing guilds.
