Artist's Insights Series January 2018
Insight 1: Risk & Reward
"There is no fear at the moment of impact."
From 2011-2016 Richard Orbach discreetly documented the cutting and transformation of many of recent history's great gemstones of color in the workshop of legendary gem cutters Reginald C. Miller Lapidary. This video short is the first in a series of brief insights to include both the art of the lapidary, the artists who practice the ancient art of gem cutting and the unique partnership of man and nature in bringing beauty, light and value into being.
