COUP de …. BLUES ! Sharon Lindsay Ferguson (IRL)

« My approach to working with textiles is eclectic in that I am essentially a collector and my work is a consequence of this infatuation. I collect memories, thoughts, images, snatches of conversation, colours and objects. These fragments combine to form the ideas that in turn shape my work.
During the past year I have worked in varying media to develop my applied art ranging from digital and screen printing to hand and computerised embroidery and 3D constructed textiles.
The pieces shown here are part of a series of work related to childhood stories and dreams, and how they relate to our lives and shape our imagination by influencing our subconscious with their illogical nature and meaning. »

COUP de COEUR ! Rachel McKnight

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Craft Northern Ireland,plastiques,Rachel McKNIGHT (IRL),SHOP — bijoucontemporain @ 0:07

« Rachel McKnightgraduated from the University of Ulster in 2003. Rachel’s quirky and innovative creations in plastics and rubber have won her much acclaim including 1st prize in the jewellery (alternative materials) section of the RDS National Craft Awards in 2005.
« The excitement of sourcing new materials and the experimentation with them inspires me to produce original and innovative jewellery. Plastics interest me because of their many manufacturing possibilities and multitude of colours. The idea of transparency and opaque colour influences my designs, and plastics allow me to explore this.”
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is available in UK and US retail outlets. »

Claire McAllister, Irlande, ou la géométrie reine

Classé dans : Claire McALISTER (Irl),Craft Northern Ireland,Irlande (IRL) — bijoucontemporain @ 23:11

« Claire McAlister graduated from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2008. She has developed a very distinctive design language in silver and dramatically-coloured wood veneers. Working with the shapes that the veneers inform, McAlister makes geometric units which are assembled in repeat patterns into contemporary jewellery pieces. The combination of these geometric elements and dramatic colours are what make McAlister’s work so original and inspiring.
“My starting point came from a response to these specific materials. The inherent qualities of wood veneer produce inspiring and dynamic forms when manipulated form their flat state.”
Claire produces both commercial and gallery-orientated works. Her unique and inspired collections have featured in exhibitions across Ireland, the UK and America. » (CraftNI)
