The exhibition Selected Stories at OHMYBLUE focuses on the relationship between bodies of work created in the last years by some of the most relevant Italian contemporary jewelry artists.
This exhibition invites the viewer to experience the different languages that these authors speak, having the chance to witness to a web of interlocking formal decisions and identities.
Every piece of jewelry is an image, a tangible object that one can pick up, put down, look from a distance, caress. Even read. Because these objects and their beauty, their shapes, their strangeness, they tell a story that accompanies us and which we want to possess, participating in the construction of significance by appropriating whatever fragment it feels dear to us.
These pieces of jewelry are lonely architectures, spaces that become ourselves and where we can feel at home, strangely.

Barbara Paganin - Rami blu,  brooch –
“Da sempre i vegetali mi affascinano così come l’unicità dell’essere umano. Siamo tutti simili, ma nessuno è uguale all’altro [...] In particolare mi affascinano i cavolfiori nella loro varietà: cavolo rosso, cavolo verza, cavolo rapa, broccoli, cavolfiori, il cavolo romano [...] In forma di foglia, i rilievi e le venature rimandano immediatamente al nostro sistema venoso e linfatico. In forma di fiore, c’è un diretto riferimento all’albero. Del calco mi interessa l’impronta, l’impronta che identifica, segno quindi unico e identificabile”.

Caterina Zanca - detail of a broochCaterina Zanca – detail of a brooch
« Tutto nasce dal disegno, dal dare senso ad un colore, ad un segno per creare forme che diventano oggetti indossabili, gioielli espressioni della mia emozione: questa è la mia ricerca. Amo le forme pulite, le architetture contemporanee, ricerco pulizia formale, l’armonia fra gli spazi, la luce, i volumi, mentre creo strutture che dialogano con il corpo, perché un gioiello deve essere prima di tutto un oggetto indossabile. Cerco il colore nei suoi contrasti, ma specialmente nella sua matericità che diviene elemento fondamentale di dettaglio. La preziosità del gioiello non sta più nel materiale, ma nell’idea e nel messaggio che questo trasmette. »

Gigi Mariani, Find#2, brooch
« Negli anni ho coltivato la passione per la pittura, informale segnica, materica, dove il colore o un segno rappresentano un’emozione o particolare stato d’animo. Ecco, cercavo qualcosa di analogo anche in oreficeria e l’ho trovato utilizzando le tecniche del Niello, la Granulazione o le ossidazioni in modo pittorico, informale. Un utilizzo che cambia l’aspetto dei gioielli e li rende unici. »

Corrado de Meo - broochCorrado de Meo - brooch
  »Nei miei gioielli voglio proiettare anche la mia consapevolezza del loro processo di attuazione, cristallizzando le fasi della trasformazione della materia di cui sono fatti per evidenziare uno dei passaggi del loro divenire e scoprire l’armonia e l’equilibrio presenti in ogni fase in cui la materia, misteriosamente, prende forma seguendo quelle leggi che ne regolano la sua struttura, partecipe della realtà di tutte le cose del mondo che sono in costante e continua trasformazione. Osservando poi, una forma colorata, non provo solamente una emozione visiva perché il colore appartiene prima al dominio dell’inconscio e successivamente a quello della ragione e, nel prendere forma esprimendo le sue sonorità, diventa una percezione globale capace di comunicare alla nostra intera essenza. »
Corrado De Meo, A red shows its relations, brooch: Corrado De Meo, A red shows its relations, brooch
« Credo che un gioiello debba essere innanzitutto un qualcosa che ti porta altrove, un po’ come un viaggio improvviso, qualcosa che ti alleggerisce e ti sbalordisce allo stesso tempo. Con una forma che ti porta felicemente da un’altra parte rispetto a dove eri sicuro di andare o che ti allieta con un’ironia inaspettata.
Amo i vuoti che danno spazio al pensiero, che ti accolgono, i contrasti cromatici e delle forme, le superfici materiche, le ombre che si creano e che cambiano a seconda dei punti di vista e della luce.«

Sergio e Stefano Spivach, Untitled, opal ring 2016 - at OH MY BLUE:
Sergio e Stefano Spivach 2016 – opal ring
« Il segreto della lavorazione dell’opale si basa sulla profonda conoscenza del grezzo, che permette di riconoscerne le qualità e l’impiego più adatto.�Essa è esclusivamente manuale e non potrebbe essere altrimenti, perché ogni grezzo d’opale viene scelto per la propria unicità.�Nelle diverse fasi della lavorazione, ad ogni gesto, ad ogni passaggio viene dedicato il tempo necessario, senza forzature. La cura con cui viene seguito ogni dettaglio è assoluta, così come l’attenzione e la capacità di adattarsi ad ogni grezzo sono un distillato di esperienza e passione. »
OHMYBLUE•••••SELECTEDSTORIES YOKO TAKIRAI & PIETRO PELLITTER DECEMBER10th  takiraidesign silver gold minimalism: YOKO TAKIRAI & PIETRO PELLITTER - minimalism ….. – brooches
« I gioielli di Yoko Takirai e Pietro Pellitteri sono espressione di nuovi concetti di spazio. Una pluralità di percorsi animano i suoi gioielli e celano per questo spesso qualcosa d’inaspettato. Le collane, glie anelli, gli orecchini sia nelle forme tridimensionali che in quelle lineari, esprimono un movimento e un’emozione inattesa finche` non li si indossa. Talvolta enigmatici nelle loro forme, i suoi gioielli si svelano nel momento dell’incontro con il corpo, rivelando una leggerezza, un’eleganza e una sinuosità estremamente femminile. E questo a dispetto anche delle linee geometriche utilizzate in alcune collezioni. La sua ricerca, riesce ad arrivare a delle forme pure e ad armonizzare eleganza e confort. Oggetti finemente elaborati perseguiti grazie ad una dedizione alla ricerca di laboratorio determinata di cui possiede la padronanza tecnica che consente di trasferire una emozione filtrata dai movimenti e le cui forme semplici e pulite rimangono senza nessuna cosa di troppo. Finemente lavorati certamente, questi gioielli, in un sereno tentativo – riuscito – raggiungono uno stato di purezza, si elevano in qualità. »

SCHMUCK 2014 – 66th International Trade Fair, Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Schmuck ‘2014
55th Special Jewellery Show
66th International Trade Fair, Munich
de 12 Mar a 18 Mar 2014

 

This special exhibition is the eldest exhibition of contemporary jewellery work in the world. It takes place since 1959 every year during the International Trade Fair in March. Except the transport cost until Munich the participation in the special show is free of charge for you. Three contributions of Schmuck 2013 will be awarded with the Herbert Hofmann Prize. The prize commemorates Dr. Herbert Hofmann, the founder of the special show in 1959. In addition the jury of the Bavarian States Prize will look at the works in the special show. The Bavarian States Prize is awarded to 10 contri-bution of applied art within all contribution of the International Trade Fair. This prize is awarded with 5.000€.

More than 552 goldsmiths from 43 countries around the globe applied to participate in the special “Schmuck” (Jewellery) show at the International Crafts Fair in Munich next year. This great interest once again confirms the importance of this event in the context of contemporary jewellery-making and the significance attached to it worldwide. An above-average number of applications were received this year from Australia, Japan and Taiwan, but also from New Zealand and Argentina, the latter having been among the applicants for only a few years now. The selection for 2014 was made especially interesting thanks to the many new exhibitors nominated by the curator Jorunn Veiteberg of Copenhagen. Unusually, “Jewellery 2014” features over 25 new exhibitors, who will be represented in this renowned exhibition for the first time.

For the year 2014, a total of 66 participants from 25 nations were invited to exhibit. Numerically most strongly represented are goldsmiths from Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Denmark and Sweden. The applicants grow younger by the year, an indicator that even before or immediately after finishing their training goldsmiths seek to compete in our special show, present their work to an interested public, experts, gallery owners and museum curators, and rapidly find their way into the jewellery avant-garde. “Jewellery” is an important venue for making a name for oneself in international goldsmiths’ circles, establishing contacts, and not least, witnessing the award of the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize on Saturday.

The special “Jewellery” show is characterized by the choice of certain themes which, in the eyes of curator Jorunn Veiteberg, represent salient traits of current jewellery design. As signs of our times and selection criteria, she sees found objects of metal or wood, things that bear definite marks of use, materials that speak an expressive, earthy language, forms and structures reminiscent of architecture, as well as masks, a tendency to mysticism, and forceful color schemes.

Honored as next year’s Modern Classic will be Dorothea Prühl, a goldsmith who lives in Halle. A teacher at Burg Giebichenstein Art College, she not only helped shape an entire generation of young goldsmiths but, over and above her teaching activity, has created an admirable, original oeuvre that holds a very special place within contemporary jewellery design.

Curator of “Jewellery 2014” is Jorunn Veiteberg, a Norwegian art historian who lives in Copenhagen. An arts journalist and exhibition curator, Veiteberg has taught since 2002 at the National Academy in Bergen, Norway. Since 2013 she has been guest professor at the University of Göteborg, Sweden, and chairwoman of the Norwegian Crafts Association. She has published in the fields of contemporary jewellery and ceramics. Veiteberg says it was a great honor for her to make the selection for “Jewellery 2014.” She was especially impressed by the quality of the submissions and their international range. For her as a Scandinavian, it was an enriching experience to see so many submissions from South Korea, Japan, Argentina, the U.S., and many other countries from around the world.

The Handwerkskammer organizes the special shows Exempla, Talente, Modern Masters and Schmuck at the International Handwerksmesse München with the Herbert-Hofmann-Award 2014 ceremony on Saturday 15th March at 4 p.m. We will show in our Galerie Handwerk the exhibition WUNDERRUMA – Jewellery from New Zealand.

For the year 2014, a total of 66 participants from 25 nations were invited to exhibit. Numerically most strongly represented are goldsmiths from Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Denmark and Sweden. The applicants grow younger by the year, an indicator that even before or immediately after finishing their training goldsmiths seek to compete in our special show, present their work to an interested public, experts, gallery owners and museum curators, and rapidly find their way into the jewellery avant-garde. “Jewellery” is an important venue for making a name for oneself in international goldsmiths’ circles, establishing contacts, and not least, witnessing the award of the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize on Saturday.

Retrospektive bei Schmuck 2014: Dorothea Prühl, Deutschland
Honored as next year’s Modern Classic will be Dorothea Prühl, a goldsmith who lives in Halle. A teacher at Burg Giebichenstein Art College, she not only helped shape an entire generation of young goldsmiths but, over and above her teaching activity, has created an admirable, original oeuvre that holds a very special place within contemporary jewellery design.
 
The special “Jewellery” show is characterized by the choice of certain themes which, in the eyes of curator Jorunn Veiteberg, represent salient traits of current jewellery design. As signs of our times and selection criteria, she sees found objects of metal or wood, things that bear definite marks of use, materials that speak an expressive, earthy language, forms and structures reminiscent of architecture, as well as masks, a tendency to mysticism, and forceful color schemes.

Joya Barcelona 2011 – Galleries/schools – ALCHIMIA

Alchimia Gallery has no specific address, and no fixed base, to promote contemporary jewellery projects in different and sometimes unconventional spaces by producing, organizing and supporting cultural events, exhibitions and fairs. This use of transient locations reflects the spirit of adventure, mobility, innovation and energy, inherent in the philosophy of Alchimia Jewellery School.

The gallery’s activity is directed mainly to the motivation and support of artists, part of the Alchimia “family” with the aim to provide opportunities for visibility and growth through the creation of a valuable international network.

At JOYA 2011 the gallery is presenting a selection of work from teachers as well as students graduated in 2011: Lucia Massei (Italy), Doris Maninger (Italy-Austria), Marzia Rossi (Italy), Daniela Boieri (Italy), Yoko Shimizu (Japan), Aline Battegay (Switzerland), Anja Eichler (Germany), Wen-Hsien Carissa Hsu (Taiwan), Gabi Veit (Italy), Lea-Maria Becker (Denmark), Jade Drakes (Trinidad), Nadege Roscoe-Rumjahn (Canada) and Satita Rajpojjanarat (Thailand)

EXPO ‘ARTornamento 2011′ – Alternatives Gallery, Rome (IT) – 23 Juin-15 Juill. 2011

(Anja Eichler brooch)

Now in its sixth year, the exhibition ArtOrnamento at Alternatives Gallery in Rome will present 8 ex-students from the contemporary jewellery School Alchimia in Florence, one of the leading Schools on an international level in the field. Alchimia is a starting point for innovation as well as a preserver of traditional goldsmithing techniques.
The 8 participants in this year’s exhibition studied under the most important contemporary jewellery artists on an international level. The jewellery in this exhibition aims to explore the relationship between the body and the finished piece, each artist interpreting a personal idea of what jewellery is today.
This exhibition aims to show the latest research carried out in the experimental jewellery field, pieces that will show an innovative and diverse approach to the more traditional concept of what jewellery is or may be considered.
This year, one of the pieces shown in the exhibition will be purchased by the gallery and will go to form part of the ArtOrnamento Collection.
