Jasmin GILES : c’est la WAX …..

Jasmin Giles (UK) textile & wax jewelry

découverte au BIAD Birmingham Graduate show 2011, re-découverte récemment sur une vidéo, ses créations « giant & bold » m’enchantent toujours !

« I make large-scale jewellery pieces, combining knitted textiles and materials such as wax and glass. The pieces represent contemporary jewellery alternatives. »

« Jasmin graduated from Chelsea College of Art last year (2010) with a first class honours degree in Textiles… Her entire degree show sold out and she is now a recipient of the Crafts Council Hothouse programme as well as working freelance from her studio in Clapham.
Jasmin told me that each piece is unique and is a labour of love- she sees her work as wearable art. Not only does she create each put together the piece, but she also creates the constituent parts. She starts off by dying the woven threads that make up the foundation of her Spring/Summer collection (top) and works hot wax into delicate (and remarkably regular) droplets.
Her work is rich, dramatic, heavy. It is bold and intelligent. I imagine it being worn as a patterned statement against a pallete of greys and blacks. I wonder who would wear it- and where? Well I would. I would wear it somewhere spectacular, where it could be seen, admired and whispered about. She talks of being interested in how the wearer is transformed by jewellery- for the AW collection, the sea is an image that I can’t rid myself of when I look at her work- I see heavy seaweed, kelp, dark nights and deep depths- perhaps that is the thing about her work; it transforms the imagination of the wearer and the viewer. » (PatternLondon, sept.2011)

SHOP SHOWS : ‘RACHEL TIMMINS’ – Quirk Gallery, Richmond (USA) – 3-27 Juill. 2012

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Rachel TIMMINS (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:05


EXPO Quirk galleryMetamorphosis, mutation, otherness, comfort and building a place to belong are concepts that are prominently featured in my work and in how I choose to live my life. Modification has changed the way that I see myself and the way the rest of the world responds to my appearance. Many of my works include shiny surfaces, craft glitter and vibrant colors which are powerful ways of creating a spectacle and showing preciousness. Both the objects and the wearable pieces that I create allow both the viewer and the wearer to step into my place in this world. I use both humor and irony in order to create a push-pull feeling between the viewer and the pieces. In my current work, I try to show how our experiences can consume and change us into something that we never knew we could be.

at « New Designers », business design centre – (London, United Kingdom)

27-Jun-2012 – 30-Jun-2012

Welcome to the 2012 Degree ShowThis year’s event marks the end of the first academic year following the College’s merger with the University of Edinburgh.

Jewellery and Silversmithing are broad terms in contemporary craft encompassing materials and techniques beyond the traditional ones associated with these trades. Skills are still very much at the root of this department and when thoughtfully applied to explore the material, memory and meaning they enrich this special discipline.

Our objective is to design and create personal, individual pieces of work that push the boundaries of our subject creating heirlooms of design to enrich people’s lives. Our exhibitions typically include explore fine metalwork in precious and semi-precious metals alongside plastic, resin, textile, paper, stone and other natural materials.
