EXPO ‘for the love of coffee’ – Studio2017, Waterloo (AU) – 2-13 Oct. 2012

« for the love of coffee »  – studio2017 – AU – 2-13oct

These contemporary jewellers love their coffee. We aren’t going to tell you that it’s the ‘be all and end all’ to their existence, but we reckon it would come in a pretty close second. Perhaps you might find that this show is not so much about the work rather the stories and anecdotes that can be shared over a good strong cup of Joe.

I assume one could parallel the making of coffee with the making of art or jewellery, but we won’t go that far. Really, all you need to know is that these Jewellers love their coffee. Without it, they might not have met up with an old friend and discussed their ideas, they might not have pulled apart their machine to see how it works, conversely they might not have built a machine to share the love, and they certainly might not have made the interesting, humorous and thought provoking work that you will see on display.

Graduating in Jewellery and Object Design from Enmore Design Centre (SIT), Erin Keys established her practice at her studio in the Blue Mountains exhibiting nationally and working as a production assistant for Sydney based contemporary jewellers. In 2006 Erin left Australia to travel to Eastern Europe and lived in Bosnia Herzegovina until joining the Metal Design Studio JamFactory in 2008. She has exhibited nationally and most recently was selected to exhibit at Talente, International Trade Fair Munich and Preziosa Young in Florence Italy and Galeria Sztuki, Poland.
Drawing from ideas that are based in mark making, the cursive style of calligraphy Keys uses explores concepts of communication and language. The calligraphic pen strokes that begin on paper, transform into graphic metal objects, and in reclaiming ownership of the body, can be best understood as the repurposing of an idea into space. Using traditional jewellery making techniques her work captures a gestural energy that is suggestive of street ‘tags’. Abstracted from their origin these calligraphic forms become aesthetic artefacts of Keys’ urban landscape.

Tassia Joannides received her Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours from Monash University in Melbourne before moving to Adelaide to work in the Metal Studio at JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design. After four years living and working interstate Tassia returned to Melbourne to continue her practice. She regularly exhibits her jewellery and sculptures both nationally and overseas, recently travelling with her work to exhibitions in Japan, Germany and the USA.
Tassia sees her practice as an investigation of form and how it can interact sensitively with the body, sometimes even as an extension of it. Typically she works with flexible materials which aid this special interaction and inspire her to push the boundaries of three dimensional soft structures.

Kath Inglis jewelled bangle

 Raised in Darwin, Kath Inglis moved to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Inglis continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop and, as a Design Associate, at JamFactory Metal Design Studio.
In 2005, Inglis partnered with Naomi Schwartz, to establish soda and rhyme│jewellery design studio. A combination workshop, retail and gallery space, soda and rhyme features exhibitions of small scale objects and contemporary jewellery.
Inglis’ signature works are wearable pieces constructed from coloured and hand carved PVC. Inspired and intuitive patterns are cut into the surface of the plastic, transforming this seemingly ordinary material into something precious.
Inglis’ practice is multi-faceted and includes frequent exhibitions in national and international galleries, large scale collaborative public art projects and lecturing in jewellery at the University of South Australia.
