COUP de COEUR ! Anna Wales : felted and forged

Classé dans : Anna WALES (UK),COUP DE COEUR,feutre / felt,www dailyartmuse — bijoucontemporain @ 0:59

« My work is designed to create a powerful visual impact along with an enticing tactility.  It features a combination of felt and silver, or of oxidized silver with polished precious metals which are arranged to form stark contrasts or subtle transformations throughout a singular piece……. Having initially studied textiles during my art foundation I found it natural to continue using these materials when I went on to study Jewellery at Middlesex University.  I was particularly attracted to this course due to the diverse nature of the work that it produced and whilst I was there we were encouraged to explore and experiment along with learning about materials more traditionally associated with jewellery »

COUP de COEUR ! Karen-Ann DICKEN des bijoux qui ont du piquant !

«  My work  is based upon the two linked themes of structure and growth.  I have a background in interior design, and come from a family of architects which has influenced my work greatly.  I aim to create very strong jewellery and objects using the same principles being used in large scale structures such as pylons, bridges and buildings (in particular geodesic domes).  These are all structures which use triangulation within its frames to ensure strength.  Through scaling down these theories to jewellery scale I am able to create fine and delicate looking structures that are very difficult to break through everyday wear. »

COUP de COEUR ! Pawel KACZYNSKI where textile meets metal

« pawel kaczynski : metal pleats, crinkles and wrinkles »

« Textile meets jewelry in an explosion of color and texture in this body of work.  The closures on Kaczynski’s cuffs and collars are a striking example of how an artist’s work can sing when the functional elements of a piece are incorporated into the design. I want to touch them and memorize the way they feel under my fingers.  Wrinkles have never been so sexy.«  (

EXPO ‘TRANSMUTATIONS/MATERIAL REBORN’ – Gallery Loupe (USA) – 22 Juin-16 Juil. 2010

This exhibition represents the extraordinary work being produced today by artists who use plastics as a foundational element in their pieces.  These are pieces that span the realms of the sublime and the humorous.  Whether meant for everyday adornment or making a specific statement, for telling a story or giving straightforward aesthetic pleasure, this exhibition demonstrates the vast range of possibilities that plastic affords.

Contemporary Art Jewelry by

TRANSMUTATIONS/MATERIAL REBORN is curated by Susan Kasson Sloan who recently jurored Lark Book’s « 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs – A Groundbreaking Survey of a Modern Material. »  Kasson Sloan teaches at the 92nd Street Y in NYC.
