David Damkoehler

Year inducted: 2016

David Damkoehler is an emeritus art and design professor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he holds the Ben and Joyce Rosenberg Professorship. While Damkoehler has shown mixed media sculpture and installations, he is best known for his pioneering work in stainless steel jewelry, Judaica, flatware, teapots and other objects. His works are lathe-turned, cold forged, and TIG welded. His work is sculptural and references his research interest in early modernist designers and early twentieth century science technology. The Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, the Racine Art Museum, and the Kamm and the Celestial Seasonings collection hold his work.

Damkoehler has a long and extensive list of exhibitions and commissions including the stainless steel ceremonial mace for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and a stainless steel Ner Tamid, an eternal light and a stained-glass window celebrating the role of women in Judaism and the Torah for the Cneses Israel Congregation in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
