After rescuing the machines, tools and artwork headed for the scrapyard in Providence, Hugo Kohl built a workshop in America's great tradition of the "work-master" hierarchy. In his Harrisonburg, Virginia, workshop, Hugo plays the role of orchestra conductor, and his fellow workers—each an expert in some form of making—his orchestra. In this way, Hugo's team of highly skilled craftspeople combine traditional methods with today's technological advances to create an exquisite collection of truly timeless pieces. Some designs are timeless: classic, flowing lines in the running scroll, feminine forms in the "Three Graces" and mythological symbols that help define our humanity. As a medium, jewelry design was profoundly meaningful to people hundreds of years ago, and it remains a significant form of ornamentation. Forever we will seek to express ourselves through personal adornment.
