Inspired by Japanese Samurai swords, George was the first metalsmith to develop “Mokume” or “wood-grain metal” from colored gold alloys and precious metals. For over four decades, he has folded and forged precious metals into beautiful patterns that suggest wood-grain, swirling water or impressionistic “paintings”. With his palette of multicolored metals, George creates original jewelry ranging from simple wedding rings to complex art objects. He finds great pleasure in creating new metals that are an art in their own right, and jewelry that speaks to the heart and inspires the imagination.
A former president of the American Jewelry Design Council, member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths and the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group, George’s jewelry is featured in museums, galleries and fine jewelry stores in the United States, Canada and Europe.
The George Sawyer studio is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
