About Josef Koppmann
Following his studies at the Arts and Crafts College in Vienna Josef completed an apprenticeship in Italy. He then moved to London where he set up his own studio, before moving into the OXO Tower on London’s Southbank, which is now both his showroom, open to the public, and his workshop.
A Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and of The City of London, Josef has exhibiting at Goldsmiths’ Fair regularly for many years. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
Josef’s sculptural and geometric forms are predominately made in sterling silver with 24 carat gold overlay, fused together by using traditional techniques.
The abstract texture that results reveals the intense colour of the 24ct gold, while contrasting with the gentle and cool shimmer of the silver. Vibrant gemstones, carefully chosen for their unique quality and cut, form the central aspect of every piece.
Each and every ring, pair of earrings or cufflinks is entirely handmade using time honoured goldsmith’s skills, resulting in minimalist, wearable jewels for both women and men.
