‘FOR EACH A BRACELET’

As a sequel to ‘Ring for the Lords’ (Walter Van Beirendonck and Marnick Smessaert), ‘Jewels for the Ladies’ (Marjan Unger and Anita Evenepoel), ‘Brooches para las Chicas’ (Chequita Nahar and Valeria Vallarta Siemelink), ‘Mary Ted Noten’  (Ted Noten and Clemence-Marie van Lieshout), this year ‘For Each a Bracelet’ was the 5th edition of an ongoing jewellery project by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. Students of the Bachelor course at the Jewellery Design & Silversmithing department were asked to design bracelets for Paul Derrez and Willem Hoogstede. (Gallery RA Amsterdam)

The consideration to give this assignment was mainly motivated by the minimal offer of contemporary styled bracelets. As an additional difficulty Paul & Willem operated as a condition that both bracelets had to differ from each other but still had to look like a ‘couple’.
After an exciting and instructive glimpse into their private collection our students had to get started with their different approaches as result.

AJF ANNOUNCES FINALISTS FOR 2016 ARTIST AWARD

From the Five Finalists Shortlisted for International Prize
(Lynn Batchelder –  Carina Shoshtary — Seth Papac — Aric Verrastro — and Timothy Veske-McMahon)
Finalists were chosen from the largest group of Artist Award applicants to date–151 artists representing 35 countries–and judged on originality, depth of concept, continuity of design, and quality of craftsmanship. This year’s jurors were Philip Clarke of New Zealand, inaugural director of Objectspace; 2014 Artist Award winner Seulgi Kwon, from South Korea; and AJF board member and collector Susan Kempin, who is from the United States.
  The unrestricted cash prize of $7500, generously funded by Susan Beech and Karen and Michael Rotenberg, will be awarded to one of the five finalists. AJF would like to thank Sofia Björkman and PLATINA for providing a showcase for the winner and finalist during Schmuck and donating the gallery’s profits to AJF. 
AJF 2016 award
Batchelder was chosen from a record number of applicants—151 entries from 35 countries. She will receive a US$7500 cash award, and her work, along with that of the four finalists, will be exhibited by Platina Gallery at Schmuck international art jewelry fair in Munich, February 24 through March 1. Batchelder will also receive the benefits of being a supporter of AJF and serve as a juror for the 2017 Artist Award competition.
Batchelder’s studio practice relies on a drawing process where forms and ideas develop intuitively through the initial exploration of a line on paper. Industrial steel becomes transparent and delicate as cuts made with the jeweler’s saw reflect the quality of a line drawn by hand. Batchelder strives to capture small moments of contrast where control and imperfection collide.
Impressed by Batchelder’s work, Philip Clarke described it as “[a]ppearing almost mechanically made at a distant glance … the character of the human hand and frailty is evident. I found that the maker was able to explore a range of ideas within the quite formal framework that they had created.” Seulgi Kwon reflected on the pieces having “exceptional structural and sculptural beauty. They are designed to deliver strong feeling and a simple message through the natural color of metal itself.” Susan Kempin added, “I love the clean lines, the simplicity and yet the complexity of the pieces … to me there is only perfection here.”
Batchelder earned a master’s of fine arts in metal from State University of New York at New Paltz, New York, USA, in 2013.
