EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Linda EZERMAN – How I fell in love with shrimps ….

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Hollande (NL),Linda EZERMAN (NL),www Klimt02 — bijoucontemporain @ 23:19

Linda EZERMAN

Contemporary jeweller Linda Ezerman lives and works in Wormerveer, The Netherlands.  Ezerman has a diverse educational background embrassing areas such as Sculpting, Cultural Management and Communication. Her jewellery plays with the paradoxical feelings her surroudings (the woods and the sea) can invoke, as well as the menaning of their history. 

« « In my jewellery I combine non-precious and precious materials. The creation process of my work is lengthy; it takes me many days, if not weeks, to complete a piece of jewellery. I work in an organic manner and combine unusual and unique materials. The result is tactile and wearable light-weight jewellery. Recognise the original materials in my jewellery may require a second or even a third close look.
My jewellery echoes the sea, contemporary and striking. Each piece is handmade and unique. »

 I admired her beach serie, sea seeds, corals & algea jewels ….. This year we got SHRIMPS ! ALL very wearable, VERY desirable shrimps !

« In my jewellery I express how I experience the outside world. I am fascinated by the surroundings I find myself in and what these surroundings invokes in me: paradoxical feelings of freedom, security and imminent danger.
A walk in the woods, for example, invokes a feeling of freedom, yet the woods also make me feel slightly ill at ease: there always seems to be lurking something in the shadows.
With the sea I also maintain a paradoxical relationship. There is space and unfamiliar life, which I find both fascinating and frightening because of its incomprehensible infinity.
Moreover, the history of my surroundings create meaning. Century-old remnants of industrial life have made this landscape into what it is today and shaped the people who live here into who and what they are.
The materials I work with originate from my surroundings: felt, wood, silver and copper, mixed with polymer clay, silicone and paint. My work is wearable, which allows it to offer security or protection from that which is so intangible and yet so impressive: the surroundings in which you find yourself. »  Linda Ezerman

Rosa Nogués: (R)evolution
In 1859 the English naturalist Charles Darwin published the book “On the Origin of Species”. He introduced the scientific theory that “it is not the strongest of the species, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change”.
Following his theory, my work becomes an unlimited process in constant progress and adaptation as a result of a desire of change.  A “Butterfly effect” that will not stop because all in life is intrinsically related. Butterflies show that beauty cannot only be found in their morphology or colours but even in the attitude that they adopt in every transformation.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Julia Obermaier – coup de coeur « lapidaire »

Julia Obermaier

C’est drôle comme « le hasard fait bien les choses » …. Ou, il n’y a pas de hasard ….Un de mes problèmes majeurs dans ma vie actuelle est ma « distance aux gens » … trop près, trop loin, je ne sais jamais où, comment me situer …. trop au bord, spectateur, voyeur, ou trop « dedans », trop impliqué … J’avais coutume de dire à mes enfants « la liberté de chacun, c’est comme une bulle : tu as ta bulle, qui te protège et t’entoure, mais elle est fragile et se « brise » facilement. Et chacun a la sienne. Il faut réussir à t’approcher des gens de manière à ce que ni ta bulle ni la leur n’éclate. C’est ça la liberté de chacun, c’est ça « ta liberté commence là où fini la mienne ». C’est un délicat jeu d’équilibre » …. Je me rappelle, ils m’écoutaient bouche bée ….. Eh bien c’est exactement de ça que parlent les bijoux de Julia Obermaier ! « The distance between people« , the « Private space » ….. Cette découverte m’apporte une immense émotion, et ce d’autant plus que …. comment dire ? ses bijoux me touchaient, je ne savais pas pourquoi, parce qu’à priori ce n’était pas « mon genre » de bijoux mais plus un « genre », un style de bijoux, très prisé actuellement parmi ce qui vient d’Idar-Oberstein ……

Julia Obermaier – (Sur)face the space.
« Private space. Working area. The distance between people. The distance between the world and me. Space is a really important subject for me. If someone is crossing the borders of my spaces without permission, it causes a bad feeling within me. That is why I try to protect them as much as possible. But in daily life, one cannot always keep direct surroundings and personal space in their preferred way. This is because our outside world is always in relation with other people and circumstances.
To build my own spaces I cut slices out of agate or rock crystal.  They represent rooms, spaces, containers, boxes or little caves. Some of my works have empty spaces with corners or nooks, while others have an inner life through engravings I cut within the pieces. I am generating space which can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer.
In contrast to the large space around us filled with other people, I see these pieces as a part of ourselves. They are little copies of the viewer or the wearer. The space inside is reserved for what people find within themselves. The outside surrounding, which is not always controllable for us, becomes the protector of what lies within the piece.  The wearer can then decide if and who is allowed to approach the work, take a look or even touch it. The pieces embody ideas of a second skin and soul protector from the outside world.  They are meant to induce a comforting feeling of inner silence for the wearer, that they can use to confront a busy world. »

« With her bachelor thesis Julia Obermaier delivers a statement of monumental grandeur. To do so, working mainly in agate and rock crystal, is a matter of concentration and patience as well as of spatial transition. Acquiring an extended awareness of space and volume, in the sense of an architectonic perspective,  paired with an empathical sensibility for the wearers and observers body and mind, and at the same time bordering the restrictions of jewellery is a remarkable feature of Obermaiers process of work. The result is a collection of wearables in gemstone with a high quality of sensitivity. As an object, Obermaiers pieces are intriguing and inviting, as soon as they are worn and in unity with the body, they show an until than almost hidden sensuality. » / Theo Smeets

« Agate is one of my most favorite materials. The huge secrecy and variety of agate as a stone and its use over centuries is attracting me in my work. Studying the layers and druses of agate amazes me and makes me curious. What is happening? What is in there? I want to arise these feelings as well in the wearers and viewers of my pieces. You can find sensitivity, strength and multifaceted sides not just in agates, as well in every other living creature. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Viktoria Münzker – granules forever !

Classé dans : Autriche (AT),COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Viktoria MUNZKER (SK/AT) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:32

Viktoria Münzker

« In the beginning, all is empty and dark. It looks like a never-ending sphere. The darkness is strong and heavy. Only a small grain from the destroyed world remains. It is floating and collecting positive energy from the space. At the right moment, in the proper place, it explodes at the speed of light. From one moment to another, the universe is full. Blending, full of light, waiting for you. Make a wish. Create the new world of light, gravid with possibilities. To give birth to something new, something old must die. By focusing on the essentials, we reach the blurred lines between natural and artificial. These relationships are the jewel in the composition of freedom and individual expression. »

Usually, I love the BLUE(s), so I should show you the new Viktoria Munzker blues, the ones we saw at last JOYA Barcelona 2016, the Crystal Odyssey serie, done with some skeleton fish (see the incredible back of this neckpiece !) …….

2016 – Crystal Odyssey

Imagine your boat drifting in the winds
towards the stars
nothing is real
everything is fantasy
kaleidoscope skies with your head in the clouds
there\\\’s a place of diamond fields
lonely hearts standing there
where are they coming from
words are sea of green, gold and blue
follow the man next door
the sun will know
all you need is everyone
across the lane we live a life of ease
return to the galaxy of souls
where the crystal odyssey was written
and colored with memories

BUT ……. I’m in a REDDISH mood (Halloween ?????) so HERE we are !!!!

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Marion Fillancq « brut et chic »

Marion Fillancq 
    Marion Fillancq - collier "Fragments & marionites" - Ligne "Archéo", 2015 métal doré à l'or fin fontes cire perdue, techniques de bijouterie Marion Fillancq – collier « Fragments & marionites » – Ligne « Archéo », 2015 métal doré à l’or fin fontes cire perdue, techniques de bijouterie

   » Verrier de formation, j’ai commencé mes recherches autour des techniques de taille préhistorique en 2009 au Centre Européen de Recherche et de Formation aux Arts Verriers (CERFAV) en Lorraine. Cette étude personnelle m’a permis de réaliser une première série d’objets utilitaires (coupes papier) mélangeant taille archéologique et taille moderne. Cette approche fut novatrice car les techniques de percussion et de pression habituellement utilisées en archéologie expérimentale sur les roches dures (silex, jaspe, obsidienne…) ne sont pas explorées dans le milieu du verre. Entre technicité et volonté artistique, j’ai développé ma démarche sur le concept de leur réutilisation contemporaine, partant d’un constat : Si les hommes préhistoriques taillaient la pierre pour leurs besoins fondamentaux, nous la taillons toujours, pour des besoins nouveaux, ceux du luxe.
     La taille n’est pas une technique anecdotique. Je la veux porteuse de sens : enlever, arracher des éclats, par pression de surcroit, sur des matières modernes, parfois nobles…
     Au fil de mon parcours, mes expériences professionnelles en passementerie, joaillerie, ou bijoux de mode nourrissent ma démarche, aiguisant ma pensée, et enveniment les questions qui me hantent. La faille, l’éclat, deviennent alors le fil conducteur de mes travaux, déjà amorcés avec Le Verre Voyageur en 2008, colis en verre postés sans protection.
     Ma rencontre avec Jean-Baptiste Sibertin Blanc, Designer, en 2009 me permet de créer Crognongnon, sculpture en bronze et obsidienne d’Arménie, éditée par Cub-ar (Michel der Agobian) dans le cadre de l’exposition collective «Un regard d’obsidienne» à la galerie Pierre Alain Challier, à Paris. J’ai ainsi rencontré Vincent Lascour, archéologue et spécialiste de la taille des roches dures (Crearchéo), qui prit en charge la taille de la pierre de grande dimension. Il deviendra un allié précieux pour la suite de mon travail.
    Désireuse de «psychanalyser» mon attirance vers les métiers du luxe alors que je combats le superflu et prône l’authenticité, je dessine mes «névroses de l’éclat», me découvrant d’autres obsessions… dans les Intrigues et Divagations Graphiques. Fascinée par la mise en oeuvre et l’implication physique que la taille archéologique demande, je contrebalance le geste en prenant le temps de dessiner mes outils de taille, ou en reproduisant des schémas techniques empreints d’ouvrages spécialisés.
     En parallèle, j’axe ma recherche sur l’objet autour de la problématique de la préciosité. Si la préhistoire apparaît souvent comme une période archaïque, il me semble que ces techniques cachent une préciosité humaine qui mérite qu’on lui rende hommage : celle de la naissance de l’intelligence de l’Homme.
     Enrichie d’une formation en bijouterie joaillerie à l’école Boulle de Paris, je poursuis mes recherches en miniaturisant le geste de taille de manière à réaliser des simulacres de diamants avec des matériaux pauvres comme le miroir. Inexplorées en bijouterie fantaisie comme en joaillerie, je suis convaincue du potentiel esthétique de ces techniques. Autant d’éléments en miroir que j’utilise aussi dans la sculpture et que je baptise «marionites». Le collier «Rivière de marionites» en comporte 52, travail de taille de longue haleine, ironisant sur le luxe de la parure traditionnelle. » (Démarche // Pensée « Taille », entre métiers d’art et design contemporain)

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Isabelle MOLENAT – un lien qui se crée …

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,France (FR),Isabelle MOLENAT (FR),textile — bijoucontemporain @ 23:56
Isabelle Molénat

« A piece of jewellery is a messenger passing emotions.
An object both unique and universal.
Once worn, it continues the maker’s narrative.
Through jewellery the body extends itself, revealing the  wearer’s appropriation
to the viewer and the rest of the world.
My work deals with this triangulation. My narratives are based on those intimate exchanges.
My jewellery work is just a story about links,
those links which my mind relies on,
links between people,
links to the world. »

Après moult liés et déliés, est arrivée la collection « KNOTs« , noeuds, et c’est là que j’ai découvert l’univers textile d’Isabelle Molénat, je crois à point nommé …. C’est ce qu’on nomme un coup de coeur …. ;-) …… comme cet objet-coeur ….

« Le bijou est un messager, un passeur d’émotions.
Un objet à la fois singulier et universel.
Porté, il fait suite au récit de son créateur.
Et le corps s’étend à travers le bijou dans une appropriation qui s’offre au regard
du spectateur.
Dans cette triangulation je glisse mon travail, récits que je construis autour de
ces échanges intimes.
Mes bijoux sont juste une histoire de liens,
liens entre tout ce qui fondent mon esprit,
liens entre les êtres,
liens avec le monde. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan Hens – the HIGHWAY of success !

Jonathan Hens

I discovered his works at fall 2013 during PARIS – CIRCUITS BIJOUX , at the exhibition ‘Precieux Passages’ at Bibliothèque Forney. A first « face to face » with a (very) STRONG creation !

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……
This is not the « Route of Success », it’s an HIGHWAY !!!

« After having researched different kinds of sub-and material-cultures, Jonathan Hens constructs with his own culture of tin while exploring the different qualities of the metal, making himself a master of his practice. By engraving, pouncing and printing, he develops a new dimension to the material. This results in graphic surfaces combined with archaic shapes and volumes. Hen’s pieces, beautiful as they are, are not indented as mere objects, but as points of recognition in a world of Tribal Ravers. They cross time and cultures.

By engraving, pouncing and printing, he develops a new dimension to the material. This results in graphic surfaces combined with archaic shapes and volumes. Hen's pieces, beautiful as they are, are not indented as mere objects, but as points of recognition in a world of Tribal Ravers. They cross time and cultures. They are an ode to the pleasures of the now. - Jonas Belde, Fashion DesignerJonathan Hens (MA) – at Marzee graduation show 2012 - Belgium, Antwerp, Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten – #8, 2012, necklace, pewter, sutures – 430 x 260 x 99 mm –

Autor 2016.  Jonathan Hens. Alliages Choice.: Jonathan Hens works presented at Autor 2016  

« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to launch his fetishism line.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. He heightens the geometry and black textures by using suture thread to bind the various elements.
His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference betweens the sexes.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. » / Jorge ManillaJonathan Hens -   THE CITY IS MY CHURCH - 2014 - #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ LatexTHE CITY IS MY CHURCH – 2014 – #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ Latex

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Yiota VOGLI – Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky …

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Grece (GR),SOFA Chicago (US),VIDEO,Yiota VOGLI (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:50

Yiota Vogli  is not new on my blog, you know her !
She is not a new « discovery », une « DECOUVERTE », but she is still, and always!, a « COUP de COEUR »  :-) , as you can see on my last post where we could discover her « SUMMER WHITES » she did for the Athens Jewellery week, during summer 2016, « COUP de COEUR : Yiota Vogli, layers of paper, layers of MEMORY ….«  , but she is a little like Lucky Luke, doing new jewels faster than her shadow !!! ;-)
So here are her last creations we had the pleasure to discover at last JOYA Barcelona 2016 : the SHADOWS collection

« SHADOWS , 
We are aware of a tiny fraction of the thinking process that goes on in our minds, and we can control only a tiny part of our conscious thoughts. The vast majority of our thinking efforts go on subconsciously. »

 Yiota Vogli -  Shadows collection at JOYA 2016Yiota Vogli Shadows collection at JOYA 2016 – birds ….

« Shadows’ 2016, this body of works is the embodiment of a fantasy world populated with shadows, exotic birds, grotesque demons and fairies, an exploration of the aesthetic and literary values of such creatures and the real and symbolic nature of the shadow as an image and a figure. Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky but it is our responsibility to prevent the ‘birds’ from landing in our minds. Those creatures become symbolic statements and represent obsessions, our ideas and fears or projections of our subconscious. Based on this approach, they are merely symbolic representations of human psychological states. »

«  I’m a jewellery designer born in Germany (1963), living and working in Brussels for the last 20 years. I have a Master of arts degree in History and a diploma of art jewellery design. Over the past years. I have been working as a teacher and as an independent jewellery designer. In 2015, I co – founded  “s t u d i o  F16 ”, a multidisciplinary art collective.
Designing and creating jewellery has been my passion since childhood, but life took me in other directions and it was only after having a child that I found my way back to jewellery design. Next to contemporary jewellery, it is graphic design and ceramics that make my heart beat faster. In my latest collection I have combined these three disciplines – a challenging but fascinating adventure. I like to experiment and to explore new materials and techniques.
A few years ago, I discovered porcelain – the white gold – and fell in love with it. Since then, this pure material has become the starting point in the creation process of my jewellery collections.

I am attracted by the translucent white colour, the fragile appearance with a surprisingly solid character and the almost sensual texture of unglazed porcelain. By integrating different materials such as 3D printed ornaments and digital designed images into handcrafted porcelain creations, I translate traditional jewellery concepts into contemporary pieces.
To me, every collection is a new journey and I love to get lost in a jungle of untrodden paths on the way to creating something new. »   Ute van der Plaats

Lidia Puica , un jour de « red envies« , comme on grapillerait une poignée de fruits rouges, de « red berries » …..

In 2009 Lidia Puica graduated from the Univestity of Decorative Arts and Design in Iasi (Romania) with specialization in Environmental Design, then she completed a Master at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), exploring the contemporary jewelry. After graduation in 2011, she was devoted to jewelry made of unconventional meterials, especially those crocheted.

« Les bijoux que vous créez sont des pièces magnifiques et parfois imposantes qui transforment en un clin d’oeil une robe neutre en tenue somptueuse. …. Est-ce que le volume est un élément clé pour vous ?
Oui, le volume est clé dans mes créations. Leur volume donne à mes pièces l’aspect de sculptures à porter. Leur taille n’est pas trop imposante, j’essaye de les rendre facile à porter. Le but n’est pas de choquer mais d’impressionner les gens dans la rue tout en étant confortable. » (interview sur tricotine.com)

« I find it a wonderful thing to use traditional techniques or ‘grandmother hobbies’ to materialize new ideas. It seems the trend for handmade products is global, and Romania is no exception. In Cluj, I have made many friends who are passionate about crafting and managed to make beautiful collaborations with some of them. I have noticed that in Transylvania, the focus is on traditional techniques and materials, and that people are quite open to crafting. »
