wire jewelry by Ines Schwotzer

Classé dans : Allemagne (DE),COUP DE COEUR,Ines SCHWOTZER (DE),metal,techniques textiles — bijoucontemporain @ 7:34

Ines Schwotzer is a jewelry and accessory designer who lives and works in the small town of Feilitzsch, Ggermany. She has worked as a freelance designer since 1995, creating her own pieces and working for the likes of fashion house chanel. Many of her works are done in stainless steel using non-tradition technique she learned through textile background. Using thin wire, Schwotzer weaves and braids the metal to create delicate works that contrast the coldness of the material.

Ines Schwotzer wire jewelry

German artisan, Ines Schwotzer’s wire frame jewelry is like no other seen before. Her 3D jewelry stands apart from the typical wire work we see. That’s because Ines uses her own unique weaving and braiding frame style technique gleaned from her background as a textile designer. She has an interest in bobbin lace making and that is reflected in her finely wrought work.

She uses mostly fine stainless steel wire although some of her work is with gold plated silver. Stainless steel is difficult to work with so her skill with this material is astounding.

Les bijoux en métal de la designer allemande Ines Schwotzer sont assez étonnants. Elle utilise des techniques habituellement associées aux textiles, comme le tissage et le tressage. Résultat: les bijoux en métal de cette créatrice dégagent une impression de légèreté et de fragilité… des effets que l’on associe rarement à l’acier!

Un fil rouge

La Commission Culturelle dans sa délicate mission de sélection privilégie, au delà d’une qualité irréprochable des oeuvres, l’originalité de ses prétendants que ce soit par la maîtrise de techniques innovantes, le défi de repousser les limites de la matière pour atteindre des formes inattendues.

Une édition haute en couleur

Vous pourrez ainsi apprécier lors de cette 5ème édition des bijoux créés selon des approches novatrices : écologique par l’utilisation de matériaux de récupération, onirique par l’élaboration d’un univers féerique autour du bijou, esthétique par la vision du bijou en tant que « sculpture de mode » … De quoi une fois de plus s’étonner, rêver et repartir paré d’une oeuvre unique…

EXPO ‘Giampaolo Babetto – L’Italianità dei Gioelli’ Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (DE) – 6 mars-30 mai 2010

Classé dans : Allemagne (DE),Exposition/Exhibition,Giampaolo BABETTO (IT),Italie (IT),VIDEO — bijoucontemporain @ 16:53

« Babetto’s works mirror a refined aesthetic concept based on dialogue, interrelationships and a blurring of boundaries between art genres. » (Florian Hufnagl)

Giampaolo BABETTO – 1992- bracelet or, pigments –  Série limitée Bracelet ‘Triangles’ 1983 Or jaune« 

 

Giampaolo Babetto (b. 1947 in Padua) has had a marked influence on the avant-garde goldsmiths’ scene since the late 1960s and is one of the protagonists of the so-called Padua School. Babetto’s work reflects contemporary art movements such as concrete art, minimal art, kinetic or op art in a unique, purist and plastic manner. Made up of different abstract elements, broken down into modular units, or rendered moveable through the use of ingenious links, Babetto’s works have a strong architectural character – like mini architectural pieces or mini sculptures.
As a jewellery artist who has received a number of awards, he prefers working in gold due to its stable malleability and its warm sheen which he combines with unconventional materials such as plastic or glass, dusting the surface a with velvet-like pigment in luminous reds or blues or using enamel and age-old niello-based techniques.
He has already been called a mixed media artist, working not only on jewellery but also on silver objects, furniture design and architectural projects. His oeuvre reveals the uncompromising demands he himself places on each of the various artistic disciplines, combined with a systematic approach and love of experimentation. With his expressive but nevertheless very wearable pieces, Babetto has advanced to become one of the most influential international jewellery artists.
A publication with photographs by Ulrike Myrzik und Manfred Jarisch will accompany the exhibition »

Alla Pinakothek der Moderne di Monaco in Germania si parla italiano. Inaugurata il 6 marzo, sarà aperta fino al 30 maggio la mostra dell’artista esponente della Scuola di Padova che ha avuto grande influenza nell’arte orafa italiana e straniera.

Le opere in mostra sono esemplari di mini architettura o piccole sculture composte da elementi astratti movimentati da ingegni e legami. L’artista, che vanta numerosi premi e riconoscimenti, mostra di preferire nelle sue creazioni l’oro per la sua malleabilità e lucentezza combinato a materie non convenzionali come plastica o vetro, talvolta rivestiti di luminosi rossi e blu così lucidi e morbidi da sembrare velluto. Il suo amore per la sperimentazione lo ha portato a creare pezzi non facili da indossare ma d’indiscusso valore artistico.Dalla collaborazione fra Babetto e la galleria Die Neue Sammlung è stata concepita un’esibizione che come un racconto procede lungo la galleria del secondo piano della Pinakothek der Moderne, le cui qualità plastiche vengono rinterpretate ogni anno da un artista diverso del campo orafo internazionale.

EXPO ‘Jewelry Circus’ Felieke van der Leest – West Norway Museum of Decorative Art, Bergen (Norway/Norvege) – 29 Mai 2010- 9 Janv. 2011

 ’Jewelry Circus’ – Felieke van der Leest

EXPO 'Jewelry Circus' Felieke van der Leest - West Norway Museum of Decorative Art, Bergen (Norway/Norvege) - 29 Mai 2010- 9 Janv. 2011 dans Exposition/Exhibition Circus

Felieke van der Leest uses toys, yarn and precious metals to create colourful and humorous jewellery and objects.

This Dutch artist who lives in Hardanger combines the traditional art of the goldsmith with well-known textile techniques in a way that leaves us unsure of what we are actually seeing. In this way she creates a magical world of stories and playful art objects for us to look at, fabulate over – or just to decorate ourselves with ?
