Anthony Lent is an internationally recognized master jeweler and designer. His highly detailed, unconventional style reflects the distinctive merging of exquisite, Old World craftsmanship with a highly personal, idiosyncratic vision. A true artist, Lent's training, experience, and attention to detail are the foundations of his work and of his unique ability to combine sophistication with irreverence. Over the past four decades, Lent has found inspiration in sculptural figures, celestial bodies, human faces, and creatures both fabled and feared. From this variety of models and images, and with the touch of his own personality and intuition, he continues to develop the dominant motifs that appear throughout the collections. Indivisible from the detailed metalwork of the designs is their imaginative integration with diamonds and other precious gemstones. They adorn his pieces on all sides, bringing a sculptural dimension to his work with a virtuosity few designers are able to accomplish. His work is designed and handcrafted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The automata was born somewhere between the Age of Enlightenment and the Industrial Age, a child of the sculptural and mechanical muses. Now practiced only by the certifiably obsessed artistic descendants of Jacques de Vauconson and Friedrich von Knauss, automata invention/creation is still celebrated and collected by a fanatic worldwide cadre of enthusiasts who appreciate the extreme dedication that goes into these captivating environments.
All automata creations are a collaboration with Steven Parker.
Anthony Lent is an internationally-recognized master jeweler and designer trained as a goldsmith in Germany. During his time in Europe, the groundwork was laid for the sculptural figures, animals, celestial faces and interpretations of fabled creatures that are the motifs that dominate his work. Combined with diamonds and colored gemstones of all types, Lent’s unparalleled craftsmanship brings these pieces to life in timeless fashionable jewelry, which reflects the beauty of nature and the modern woman it adorns.
After working as a goldsmith and designer of private label goods for some of the world’s most prestigious jewelry houses, Lent developed his own exclusive line of unconventional jewelry. Anthony has also pursued the fascinating world of automata, creating magical and intricately built pieces that delight and beguile the eye and the mind. His award winning work has been shown in numerous venues across The United States and Europe.
Anthony creates his fantastic jewels in his Philadelphia based studio where he has amassed a working museum of both modern and antique technology to produce the challenging work his collectors cherish.
