EXPO 'HERE, NOW & TOMORROW' - Goldfingers, Copenhagen (DK)- 19 Mai-4 Juin 2011 dans Danemark (DK) 230826_193490527363919_100001089208634_529035_8254586_n

Jewellery. Gold and glitter. All that glitters is gold. Even if it is made out of plastic and yarn or wood and phone books. What glitters is what you see glitter.
INSTITUTE FOR PRECIOUS METALS educates jewellery designers: Those that come up with the ideas for the jewellery you would want to wear tomorrow. Gallery GOLDFINGERS shows a varied choise of the student’s works.
Not a lot of wedding bands or floral brooches here. None, as a matter of fact. But loads of fun and serious jewellery, possible and impossible jewellery, crazy and sensible jewellery in almost every material ready for a finger, a head, a neck and a collar. Come and have a peek directly into here and now.

 Paolo Scura

« The City is my home.
Every city I visit, every pavement I walk upon and every wall I come across tells me a story. They are unique stories about their inhabitants: their values, emotions, needs, dreams and desires… all are reflected on the surfaces of these urban environments. It is their constant evolutions which provide a boundless collection of juxtapositions: between the new and the old, between chaos and order, between the accidental and the calculated. Streets, buildings, walls, surfaces of various materials and colours become a mixing ground where boundaries clash, blur and dissolve. 
There is a symbiosis in all of that  we change our environment and then we change in response to our environment. The city wears us and in return we begin to wear the city. I find all this beautiful, and it is by collecting those impressions and combining them, but at the same time contrasting them, with the fine aesthetics of jewellery that I create my work. Stitched, pierced, punched, melted, fused, cast, constructed, invented…. Small collisions, paradoxical jewellery sculptures from the everyday. »

Classé dans : Australie (AU),COUP DE COEUR,Mel MILLER (AU),SHOP — bijoucontemporain @ 1:26

Mel MILLER, contemporary jeweller based in Melbourne

« I completed a Master of Arts in Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia in 2009, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Metalsmithing) at Arizona State University, USA in 2004. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at the renowned international exhibition of emerging artists ‘Talente’ in Munich, 2011, and in ‘Jewellery Topos’ touring to Galerie Marzee, the Netherlands and Gallery Loupe, USA during 2009-11.

I’m interested in the luminosity, colour and texture of materials usually regarded as mundane, and the transformation of materials and the stories they tell. My work explores transformations of landscapes into jewellery with an Impressionist concern for colour and light, as well as the transformative effects of memory and the tradition of storytelling. Background becomes foreground; the recollected story becomes history; the mundane becomes magical!

You can also find my work at Arbor Jewels in Melbourne and Studio 20/17 in Sydney. »*TfetoNH/IMG_7413_1.jpg?width=737&height=491

« Une réunion, un événement, un moment qui est passé, tout cela sont des mots. Les mots sont souvent les pensées et les réflexions sur notre existence. Préoccupations qui forment souvent la base de mon travail.  Il s’agit de savoir qui je suis, d’où je viens, où je vais, ce que je fais, à voir et à faire preuve de vigilance. Je suis à la recherche d’un équilibre entre le matériel et le mental, le poétique et le fonctionnel. Mes bijoux sont conçus pour le corps et le porteur. Cela parle de la répétition, des roulements et des dimensions qui composent l’ensemble.  »
quels matériaux utilisez-vous ?

Kaylee RUSSOTTI-Jointed Squannel  Brooch – Sterling silver, string, copper tubing, vinyl


« Funnels, Squannels, Bells
My body of work investigates the development and transformation of the funnel form through the use of varying materials and exploratory processes. In addition to historically valued materials such as sterling silver, I utilize string, which is abundant, cheap and typically overlooked. The repetitive process of manipulating string is both therapeutic and meditative. Normally used to bind and tie objects, by reconfiguring the string into three-dimensional shapes, I give it a new presence and purpose.
With slight alterations to each form my possessions form a unit. This personal repertoire of forms serves as a map of my process. As they evolve, each object builds upon the previous and fuels the creation of the next. They exist individually while others gather in swarms.
Multiple articulated elements such as tube and rod allow the pieces to conform to the body and move fluidly. Repetition of structure and form also aid in the movement of the work and enhance its relation to the body. This investigation of forms and reworking of materials allows me to experiment and fully appreciate the angles and curves of a particular shape. »   Kaylee RUSSOTTI

COUP de COEUR : Sunghee PARK – exploration of constructed space and form

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Craft Victoria (AU),Korea (KR),metal,Sunghee PARK (KR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:05

Sunghee PARK  Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia

Sunghee Park is a new talent in contemporary metal, who recently exhibited in the Inside Out Exhibition of the Jewellery and Metalsmiths Conference, 2008 and was featured in issue No. 84, Monument Magazine, 2008.
Originally from Seoul, South Korea, Park has been studying at Monash University in Melbourne.  In 2004 Park completed a Diploma of Art and Design at Monash College and during 2005-2007 completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in metal and jewellery.
In her work Park explores the concept of space and presents geometric forms in new ways.  Using the cube as her starting point, Park creates 3-D forms in flat sheets from a number of perspectives. During 2008, Park has developed her ideas further, by introducing colour and movement into her work as well as using new materials to produce larger pieces. (ART WITH AL)

This exhibition (Contemporary jewellery – Illusion series by Sunghee Park – 2009) is an exploration of constructed space and form.  The pieces, produced over a two year period, begin with flat sheets of steel and the concept of a cube. Park then experiments with form, using flatness and layering to examine simplicity, movement. light and shadow.
Moving from constructed space and form, Park then explores the natural environment, in particular mountain scapes, which inspire different techniques and approaches to examine simplicity, movement, light and shadow.
As an emerging contemporary jeweller, Park’s work is a series of experiments, based on geometric forms to evoke movement and the play of shadows.  2009 will be an exciting year for Park as she has successfully completed her training and begins a new chapter in her career.
