COUP de COEUR : Reiko ISHIYAMA – évanescence, légéreté, délicatesse ……

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Japon (JP),metal,Reiko ISHIYAMA (JP) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:11

Reiko ISHIYAMA will exhibit at the Smithsonian Craft show 2011 -

« I work in sterling silver and gold. Each idea for my pieces begins with the pure forms of a circle or a square reshaped and combined to form spirals, cylindrical curls and other three dimensional shapes. Through techniques of hammering and heating, oxidation and heating patina these simple forms are transformed into small works of sculpture designed to be worn. « 

« My work has an almost fragile quality, stressing lightness and mobility. By shaping paper thin sheets of silver, I can house space itself. When people hold my work in their hands, they are often surprised by its delicacy and lightness. There is an evanescent, momentary quality that I hope people can truly savor when they wear my pieces.«
