Ted Muehling, by Don Freeman

In their organic simplicity, Ted Muehling’s exquisite jewelry and objects evoke nature’s purity, poetry, and sensuality. Muehling has described his work as an on-going effort to experience the familiar anew, “to see an egg, a leaf, or a shell as if for the first time.” Noted photographer Don Freeman has been capturing Muehling’s work since the beginning of each of their careers. These photos first appeared in Ted Muehling:  A Portrait by Don Freeman (Rizzoli, 2008).
