Otto Jakob

Contemporary Jewelry

Otto Jakob (*1951) is a self-taught artist-goldsmith. At 17 years old Otto Jakob began to teach himself to make jewelry. Inspired by the magic and artistic power of Etruscan, Celtic and Hellenic masterpieces, he learned their complex techniques using treatises by Pliny and Cellini. Between 1977 and 1980 he studied painting with Georg Baselitz. Since 1980 he has devoted himself to the creation of jewelry. Early collectors of Otto Jakob’s works were renowned contemporary German artists including Georg Baselitz, Jörg Immendorff, Markus Lüpertz, Günther Förg, and Sigmar Polke. Otto Jakob lives and works in Karlsruhe, Germany. His works are available exclusively at his atelier, at TEFAF Maastricht, and TEFAF New York Fall.
