Myung URSObrooch ‘Korea‘ – silk, thread, oriental ink, lacquer, chrysoprase, sterling silver – 2008

« My artistic imagination transforms itself from life and nature. Painterly and sculptural jewelry forms convey personal stories and memories from life. The forms rendered through collaboration between metal and fiber reflects my interest for abstracting from nature. I challenge myself to emphasize the special characteristics and beauty of materials while expanding the boundaries in creating an original identity for my jewelry art form.« (Myung URSO , South Korea)

« Calligraphy and sewing serve as my fundamental techniques, which I have practiced throughout my lifetime.  I also found that my elderly mother’s traditional way for the preparation of food, such as the shaping of rice cake and arranging vegetables for winter storage, combined with my previous work experience as a reporter and curator for art and craft have shaped my own interpretation of contemporary jewelry. » (Myung Urso)

Classé dans : Anat SAPIR (IL),Israel (IL),verre / glass — bijoucontemporain @ 0:02

Anat Sapir (Israel) Anat Sapir was born in 1961. In 1988 she graduated from the Bezalel Art and Design Academy (Israel).

In 2005 she specialized in glass bead making at the Wertzberger Art College.

Anat Sapir Glass Jewellery Design

« When I first came upon glass bead jewelry, the connection was immediate and total. I was particularly attracted by the richness of colors and the translucency, and the great beauty achieved by combining them. I participated in a short workshop (of several hours) on Technique and also perfectioned my skill from books, from the Internet. And especially during what I call “A lot of lamp hours”. In the course of my work I allow myself the freedom of trial and error, which always leads me to new discoveries. For me, glass is both my raw material and inspiration. The process of creation becomes an exploration into the thrilling qualities of the material and into its amazing possibilities. My jewelry is testimony to or Perpetuation of a magical discovery in technique, form and color. The excitement is great, each time anew. I melt the glass in a high-temperature flame and by turning and modelling the liquid material on a mandrel I create the bead, and then carefully and gradually cool it. I mainly create hollow beads. I love the fact that they are big and light, which provides me with room for expression and creativity. » (Anat Sapir )
