Item: James Parker Enamel Panel – “Profiles”
Designer/Maker: James A. Parker Jr. taught photography, art and English for the Grossmont Union High School District. He was an early member of the Allied Craftsmen of San Diego and showed his fine silver work in numerous national exhibitions. An accomplished silversmith, James Parker designed rings, pins, tie bars, pendants and cuff links in a “robust and forthright style.”
Parker became increasingly involved with enameling in the 1960s. He joined a growing group of San Diegans, including Margaret Price and later Phyllis Wallen, upon whom the work of The Woolleys and Barney Reid had much influence. Parker was later a member of the Enamel Guild in Spanish Village.
