« La vie est comme un échange entre donner et prendre, entre le développement et le changement. L’objet trouvé est un déchet du monde de consommation qui traîne un peu partout en attendant sa destruction, son renouvellement ou sa métamorphose. L’objet trouvé est le souvenir d’une personne absente, un témoin du temps passé.
Les objets trouvés dérangent ma routine quotidienne. Ils attirent mon attention, ils stimulent ma curiosité et nourrissent mon imagination.
Souvent ces objets trouvés et cette routine quotidienne sont des points de départ pour mes travaux. Le processus alternant expérience et réflexion me mène jusqu’au travail final.
Je réponds intuitivement aux objets quotidiens usés et à leurs fragments. Je les laisse perturber ma routine journalière, les habitudes et rituels de ma vie.
Des points de vue et des valeurs communs sont remis en question.
Je crée des bijoux et des récipients innovateurs et délicats. Mes objets évoquent des souvenirs et jouent avec l’imagination.
Le sujet de naturel-artificiel persiste dans mes différents projets.
En général, je suis fascinée par la thématique du naturel et de l’artificiel. Où sont leurs limites de nos jours ? Est-ce qu’il y en a ? Le but de cette exposition est de mettre en relation des travaux qui traitent le sujet du naturel et de l’artificiel en rapport avec nos corps naturels ou plus si naturels. » Luzia Vogt, 2012
« The collection ‘plastic flowers don’t wilt’ bears a very personal reference and origins in the loss of a beloved one. The jewellery deals with the memories, the desires of this person, her preferences and death per se. But not like a wilted flower, the epitome to illustrate dying, plastic flowers are one of the basic materials and approaches.
Their half- value period is considerably longer and stands for the remembrance of a per…son that still exists after the death.
For me it’s not mourning jewellery in a classical way, it grows out of the altercation with the loss and the shock of your own foundation.
The pieces of jewellery communicate a certain sense of lightness , which is essential for living and the being itself .
The initial points for this collection are single personal facets of this deceased person and several compounds with her, such as a certain longing for glamour, the plastic flowers, which surrounded her and the edelweiß – for me as well a sign for continuance.
Yet the challenge of turning a per se cheap material into a piece of jewellery which is displaced from this inferiority, which develops it’s own value and leaves it’s original context is most thrilling for me. «

SIERAAD Art Fair
« People wear jewellery for very different reasons – from habit or from a form of self- respect, when one has to dress for a certain occasion, but also in memory of a beautiful moment or a certain person. Jewellery is also worn simply because one is happy to be alive, from the need for something new and in anticipation of things to come. Just as people wear jewellery for different reasons, they also differ in taste and physical appearance. Some people can spend more money on jewellery than others. But where is a contemporary selection to be found that, as far as diversity is concerned, surpasses all other forms of presentations in the way of ideas, materials and price range?
SIERAAD was set up in 2001 as a platform for people who have chosen a fantastic profession in which they can realize all their ideas but who, being self- employed, have only limited possibilities to put their work on the market. The need for such a platform is apparent from the growing number of participants from many different countries who would like to present themselves. This year the work of independent jewellery designers from more than ten countries will be on show. The direct confrontation with the public does not only serve a necessary, economic purpose – it may also result in some feedback regarding the content of their work, which in turn may lead to new developments.
Realizing this edition of SIERAAD Art Fair means that the ideal form of the fair has been realized at the same time. With its characteristic outline and beautiful open space the former gasholder on the premises of the Amsterdam WesterGasfabriek is the right spot with the right atmosphere. The location is spacious enough to create an individual place for each designer while still maintaining the coherence. The fair displays jewellery in all its manifestations and furthermore, presents a small number of goldsmiths that design silver plate.
What goes for vases or paintings goes for jewellery as well – enough is never really enough. Obligations and restrictions are self-imposed values. What really matters is the joy that can be experienced from a work of art. Apart from the wealth of forms and colours, what is especially important are the associations one may have with it and the way one can live with it. That is why the fair is just as interesting for people who seldom buy jewellery as for collectors of these items of cultural significance. Unique objects in a variety of price ranges are to be found here as well as jewellery made in small numbers.
By means of a few centrally located presentations the range of the concept ’jewellery’ is shown. This year it will be an exhibition in which jewellery designers write history, entitled “Medieval Mystery solved”. Jewellery can also symbolize loss and sorrow, which becomes clear from the impact of “Bomb Wreck Jewellery”. As organisers of this fair, Astrid Berens and Maarten Bodt are aware that an increase in new talent is crucial for the profession of jewellery design. Therefore, this year they offer space to students of the section Jewellery & Product Design of the College of Arts in Maastricht. Using new computer technology jewellery designers associated with the Formativ from Düsseldorf make unexpected possibilities and jewellery tailored to the individual visible and tangible. For those who want to increase their knowledge about jewellery there will also be a stand with books on this subject.
In short, everybody can find something to his liking on this edition of SIERAAD Art Fair, if only, for starters, a personal remembrance of this confrontation with the many-sidedness of contemporary jewellery. » (Marjan Unger, art historian and publicist)

NEW TRADITIONAL JEWELLERY GROWS INTO A BIENNIAL EVENT
THEME INTERNATIONAL DESIGN CONTEST AND EXHIBITION IN 2010: TRUE COLOURS
Starting with the fourth edition, New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) will become a biennial event. The three preceding editions of this international design contest and the ensuing travelling exhibitions have been proof of the success of this project and its right to exist. The quality requirements as to the nature and scope of and entries for the event are becoming increasingly strict. In order to meet these requirements in a professional manner NTJ will become a biennial design contest.
The next edition will be in 2010. For the design contest and exhibition 2010 the technical jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) has chosen the theme ‘True Colours’ because literally as well as figuratively this theme offers considerable scope for inspiration.
The 2010 theme: ‘True Colours’
Showing your true colours means that you show what your real attitudes and qualities are. You can approach True Colours from a social perspective; society is full of topical colour coding. Other examples may be found in heraldry, folklore and science.
True Colours refers to colours and pigments. Over the centuries the palette of art history has been determined by precious mineralogical and biological pigments that were obtained from ground semi-precious stones, processed metals, and earth, seeds and plants – materials that did not always bear the test of time; in the course of time white lead e.g. turned black.
The link between the theme ‘True Colours’ and contemporary jewellery design is obvious. From time immemorial the significance and appreciation of jewellery have pre-eminently been determined by colour.
From the use of gold or silver to enamels and mineralogical and biological stones: colour is a language. In the seventies and eighties it became manifest how rich this language is. The application of textiles and Perspex in jewellery led to a new form language and use of colour – an important stage in the emancipation of contemporary jewellery design.
True Colours is about the history, meaning, value, magic and power of the language of colour.
The importance of NTJ
For every edition of New Traditional Jewellery an inspiring theme is chosen. Participants are challenged to reshape historical or traditional jewellery. They do not submit just their design – they must also submit pictures and information about the historical or traditional ornament on which their concept is based.
This is the characteristic added value of NTJ: past and present are bridged by artists in a very personal way. A technical jury selects fifty to seventy designs which are on show in an exhibition during the SIERAAD fair, where the winners of NTJ are also officially announced.
When taking part in this contest, jewellery designers from all over the world make use of a new platform where they give shape to their vision of a tradition and a theme. This design contest and the ensuing travelling, international exhibition have become a showcase for developments in contemporary jewellery in the new millennium.
Foundation Art in Business is the initiator of New Traditional Jewellery. Its objective is the promotion of knowledge and appreciation of the art of jewellery in the business world, among private individuals and civil authorities. In this ways FAB wants to bridge the gap between artists and buyers and between tradition and today’s world.
