DECOUVERTE/COUP de COEUR ….. Rachel BLAIR from Glasgow School of Art

Rachel BLAIR

Rachel Blair – A Sense of Place
Rachel is a recent graduate from the Glasgow School of Art, 2015 (Degree Show 2015). She is a Jeweller, designer, maker from the Northern Isles of Orkney.  She is interested in creating pieces with contain balance in material and tension. Her work is an expression of her constant longing for a sense of belonging. She is interested in the phycology of attachment to place and the memories and thoughts alluded from the feeling of belonging. Her work this past year has been focussed on the idea of a ‘sense of place’, through this she has been investigating her own honesty. Her pieces are true to the original materials; she does not try to conceal construction. The sensitivity of the fragile papers held in by pressure and tension create uneasiness, however aesthetically beautiful.

« My pieces are mainly constructed from silver and gold wire frames with tension set wound papers. These papers are all hand dyed and wound individually to create intricate patterns incorporating the flaws and ripples. I uses papers to create pieces that have a sense of preciousness, papers that are usually worthless, but when manipulated and set in a precious setting have a much greater meaning. By using paper, my pieces have a limited lifetime. It is the wearing away of the precious papers within a materially precious band that is the interest. The piece is always under tension and stress, but aesthetically complete. » Rachel Blair

She has been working closely with drawing materials in her pieces. Drawing is an integral part of her design process. It is the love of the tangibility and immediacy of a sketchbook, and how private and controlled a sketchbook can be; that is the catalyst to transfer those qualities into her work conceptually and aesthetically. Her pieces are constructed from silver and gold wire frames with tension set papers. These are hand dyed and wound individually to create intricate patterns within the layers. She uses papers to create pieces that have a duality of preciousness, papers that are usually worthless, but when manipulated and set in a precious setting have a much greater meaning. By using paper, her pieces have a limited lifetime. It is the wearing away of the precious papers within a materially precious band that is the interest. The piece is always under tension and stress, but aesthetically complete.

« I have been teaching Rachel Blair at Glasgow for the past four years and have watched how her work has grown in confidence and skill.
Her degree body of work focuses on her love of her home, Orkney. The work explores ways of capturing a sense of place and communicating visually her connections to the island. From this exploration of emotions and memories colour and material exploration has become a key component of her work. Through a thorough research investigation into paper and the use of colour Rachel has created complex yet simple pieces using ink and paper. Gradients of colour, washes of blues and browns create warmth and detail in tightly bound paper structures. This is an unconventional choice of materials within a jewellery degree and showcases Rachel’s efforts to challenge convention.

DECOUVERTE ….. Monica Cecchi, recup’ in red

Monica Cecchi

  »My studio is like a child’s playroom where everything is permitted but under the rule of my game. I almost always start with very free sketches trying to keep the lightness and spontaneity of the gesture on paper. During the planning and the execution I do not exclude any possibilities of changing my plan that the randomness or other events can suggest to me. I try to consider what is happening and choose what interests me at the that moment. I think it is a game played on the unconscious memory because my intention is to loose a certain kind of control in my creative phase losing the intent of reason to arrive at something that I have known but, at the same time, surprises me.
I try to reach a result that amazes me while I can recognize as something familiar, like when, during the day you notice something that reminds us of a dream the night before that you were not able to recall with an effort of will. I work both in field of jewelry and in sculpture probably because both of these two disciplines have a base of technical progress that is able to keep my ego and my opinion busy, until the end of the job.
One of the materials that I love are the old thin cans; I like their graphics because represent a certain type of history of society of the last century where the packaging was non junk it was reusable. These containers remind me of my childhood, of grandmother who preserved these boxes of cookies where they kept wires and button or other tools that they consider valuable. I am a passionate collector and, at the same time, a destroyer of these objects that have had a particular symbolism for me ranging from the protection and coercion, but at the same time, can be used as a palette for a painter and still possess a charm which doesn’t seek an explanation.
I really like using the old material, which has the signs of aging or has cracks that suggest their story without revealing it completely. Generally I join these objects, unique for and valuable for their history, with the material prized for its commercial value because it seems to me that this contrast is interesting and that between these two types of material a relationship and tension is born because their difference. »

IL FAUT SAUVER LE ….. LA …. “uncommon jewelry for independent women”

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,metal,recup' / recycled,Roxy LENTZ (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 23:21

Non non non, vous n’y êtes pas ! on n’est pas « au cinéma ce soir » avec « Il faut sauver le soldat Ryan »,  MAIS plutôt il faut « sauver » la créatrice de bijoux Roxy Lentz ! ;-)

Effectivement elle vient de m’écrire « Where I live none of the jewelry we both love would sell, none. So, when I try to go for that, I never know if I am going on the right path. …… I am ready to stop making jewelry to please the midwest taste …. »
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!

J’avais déjà remarqué, et donc aimé, certains de ses bijoux sur mon « board » Pinterest « ROUGH, RUDE & SAUVAGE … jewelry » mais en voici plus … rien qu’en son honneur !

She calls her jewelry  uncommon jewelry for independent women…..

« Re purposed metal with a new mission. My jewelry is fabricated from recycled metals I find at thrift shops; I occasionally will use purchased metal, but prefer the patina of metal that has a history. Silver plate trays once given as wedding gifts, stored and then abandoned are crafted into one of a kind pieces that will bring attention to the wearer every time they are worn.  In 2010 I received a grant from the Italian Cultural Institute of Louisville, KY to go to Florence, Italy and take a two week course of intensive study in the fabrication of studio art jewelry, at the world known Alchimia Contemporary Jewellry School. Jewelry resulting from this study is in the “Firenze Collection”.  I show my one-of-a-kind jewelry at selected art shows, and in several galleries across the US. (for example, « Ferrous », held at Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco CA. 2013)  » Roxy Lentz

The pexi-glass is from a fabric store sign that was blown down during a hurricane. Hurricane Ike took a side trip to the mid-west. NFS – More brooches may be made in this material and style.   about 3″ long.

« I found it on the ground«  The materials used for this jewelry have a past, and memories that go back to the beginning of time. Elements fused together and became metal, the metal was refined and fabricated into beautiful silver plated trays given as gifts for a new marriage, to someone who earned a bit of recognition, or just because. 
Then the memories change and are passed on to someone else, and the old memories are refashioned into new ones. 
A walk along a beach or river, will often find bits and pieces of burnt wood, things once recognizable and useful, now cast aside. Memories of a campfire, love, friendship, and good food. 
This collection is about the memories that fill our lives, we share, put away, then burn into our consciousness for safekeeping.

EXPO ‘ SIMON COTTRELL – timbre’ – Sienna Patti, Lenox (USA) – 27 Juin-19 Juill. 2015

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Sienna Patti (US),Simon COTTRELL (AU),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:12

 Sienna patti - Simon Cottrell TIMBRE - reception June 27 4-6pm (Simon Cottrell Paired Uneven Double Pendant, 2015 Monel, woven nylon cord )

The specific combination of qualities within a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds of the same pitch and volume is its ‘timbre’. While Simon Cottrell‘s works are tangible and far less transient than any sound can ever be, this term which defines the inherent small differences within similarities seems more than apt to apply. The ongoing and slowly shifting use of certain preset parameters with only a singular material, monel, and an achromatic palette, has become his formal language. Working within this sameness has lead him to focus more closely on the possible variances within those systems of working, and heightens the sensitivity to relationships between tiny details within one piece or acrosspast works.

“I have no need to hurry or progress in leaps and bounds. Each piece is conceived primarily for an existence in collaborating with a wearer towards their communication of self. From a wearer’s perspective, prior relationships between other earlier works of mine are insignificant. As ever my work retains a decisive avoidance of direct allusions or clearly resolved representation. This is not so much by thorough pre-­‐planning, rather by only allowing coy suggestions of subjects to repeatedly rise in a responsive and intuitive process of making, and then continuing countering those subjects. The result usually evokes something between anything and nothing.”

Devils and Their Friends by Helen Britton

09 Jun -  24 Jul 2015 at Sienna Patti – Lenox, USA

The newest collection of rings by Helen Britton, « Devils and Their Friends », are now in exhibition at Sienna Patti. The pieces have roots in her long time fascination with popular culture and its everyday remains and are exclusive to the gallery.

« Devils and Their Friends
If I think about when this work started, then of course I quickly land in the forests of Thüringen and the first of the Devil ring series in 2007. But then that work really stared with visits to that region in 2001. Recently I unearthed a stack of drawings from my late teen and early twenties: wild pigs, black dogs, old cars and headless horsemen. Clearly the things that attracted me to the Forest were not something new.
There was always a dark side, an interest in spooky things, and the obsession with Ghost trains is now common knowledge. But they were also comical, harmless and popular things, things that made their appearances not only at fairgrounds, but also in cartoons on TV or in the jewellery that rolled out of the trinket automat at the supermarket. Popular culture and the everyday remains the baseline in much of my work.
The characters in this series inhabit an imaginary world that has its roots in the Forest [1] work, Unheimlich[2] and these early drawings. Smooth Devil, Stone Devil, Wood Devil, Dough Devil, Fire Devil, Eel, Water Sprite, Millipede, Swine and Old Tree. These characters have broken through to the surface of this deep old river of preoccupation, crept out of their dank and mossy worlds and I have captured their likeness before they slip back under the surface and head on their merry way. » - Helen Britton, 2015.
