Israeli artist Vered Kaminski delights in detail and often follows a mathematical approach to the process of jewelry-making. She employs the meditative aspects of repetition to create delicately intricate structures that feature meandering wire lines and/or the myriad forms found in nature, utilizing diverse materials – both precious and plain. The pieces often have architectural associations, such as fencing, or ornamental connections, for example, Islamic tracery. Kaminski holds a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, where she is a professor, along with graduate studies at the Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and a MFA from University of Paris. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Prize of Excellence from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem; The Alix de Rothschild Foundation Prize, Israel; and the Prize in Art and Design from the Israel Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport. She is the 2015 recipient of the Andy (Andrea M. Bronfman) Prize in Contemporary Craft from the state of Israel. Her work is represented in numerous public collections, among them the Israel Museum, Jerusalem; Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; Newark Museum, Newark, New Jersey; and Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
