DECOUVERTE : Daniela CARDILLO ….. « so exquisite… »

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Daniela CARDILLO (IRL),Irlande (IRL),organics,SHOP — bijoucontemporain @ 18:37

« ….this is beautiful stuff. It’s shockingly well crafted ….. Secondly, there’s the concept : this is jewellery formed out of electroformed components of dead animals. Skulls, bones, claws – who’d have thought this stuff could be so exquisite? » Says Ails McGee of Daniela Cardillo (store.accordingtomcgee)

 Daniela Cardillo has been shortlisted for this year’s European Prize for Applied Arts – Young Talent, and her work will go on display from 14 July to 9 September in Belgium. She will find out next week if she has won an award.
« Speaking to TheJournal.ie, Daniella explained that her work isn’t about shock value; instead, it is about creating something beautiful.
“It’s great – I’ve been really busy lately,” said Cardillo of her nomination. She has recently returned from London, where she met with retailers to discuss the possibility of selling her work in stores.
Since graduating last year, she has met with an enterprise board and taken a ‘start your own business’ course, while working on getting funding together to set up her own studio.
She hopes to have her online store up and running next week and is working on creating pieces that are less labour-intensive and more affordable than her previous work. » (thejournal.ie)

DECOUVERTE : Daniela CARDILLO .....
Untimely – Electro-formed and gold plated mice jaw bone, and woven horsehair neckpiece. (detail & sketches)

« I am concerned with finding beauty in and making use of death and discard.I’m intrigued by the components that make up a creature. When an animal dies, these parts loose their sense of function, and can then be studied and appreciated for their true aesthetics.
Taxidermy, hunting trophies and the concept of the animal as a status and power symbol, is also at the root of my work. If bones, skulls, claws, and hair are considered memento-mori, the pieces are not a simple reminder of death, but an alteration of it, vitalizing past life fragments.
Each piece is individually hand crafted, using traditional Victorian hair weaving techniques. The bones are electroformed and then goldplated, encasing individual relics of past lives. » Daniela Cardillo (National College of Art and Design Craft Design (Ceramics, Glass & Metals) BDes (artsthread)

« When was the last time a necklace provoked a debate? » Says Daniela Cardillo , « I am concerned with finding beauty in and making use of death and discard.

Each piece of jewellery is individually hand crafted, using traditional Victorian hair weaving techniques. The bones are electroformed and then goldplated, encasing individual relics of past lives. The collection is entirely made from rodent bones and horsehair, creating beauty and revitalizing death tokens that often hold an unappealing stigma.«
