Anthony Tammaro

Anthony Tammaro is a designer of couture and production jewelry who takes advantage of a number of technological advances and materials developed over the past decade. These include the digital design environment of 3D-modeling software, as well as a number of additive production processes that, in his work, allow for creativity in form and function unattainable with typical production means. Since standard metal jewelry production methods were limiting in terms of scale, he began to devise techniques to assemble large-scale, dramatic body ornament.

Tammaro holds a BFA as a Crafts major at The University of Arts in Philadelphia, is a graduate of the Masters Course of Industrial Design at Domus Academy in Milan, Italy, and an MFA graduate in the Metals-Jewelry-CAD/CAM program at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art.

In his newest body of work, Tammaro continues to collaborate with fashion photographers to reach beyond the typical scenario of presenting objects of personal adornment in isolation. His work has been exhibited nationally in galleries including Wexler Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), Velvet Da Vinci (San Francisco, CA), Gallery Loupe (Mont Clair, NJ), Sienna Gallery (Lenox, MA), and at The Philadelphia Museum of Art. Upcoming exhibits include a solo exhibition at Quirk Gallery (Richmond, VA), Design Philadelphia and in the national touring exhibition of “Lark’s 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs.”
