Sculptor and jewelry designer, Jill Platner, has been turning out lovely creations intended to adorn the body or accessorize a favorite space. Since '98, Platner has used her lovely, welcoming Crosby Street studio as her shop, zen-like workspace, and gallery to her impressive, voluminous sculptures. Upon meeting Platner there's no denying her disposition is as charming as her Soho space and inspired, comprehensive pieces.
There's a definite sense of fluidity and organic motion to Platner's jewelry collections and
larger art forms. The artist feels most connected to silhouettes that naturally flow with the lines of the body. What speaks to her most are modernly clean and supple edges, and nonconforming aesthetics. Platner's pieces suggest minimalism, but with a delicate force that hints at the slightest bit of underlying sexiness. The artist's jewelry collections are brilliantly androgynous, which without doubt is why that quiet confidence and sex appeal are so evident.
