(Attai Chen on left – Carina Chitsaz-Shoshtary on right)
Not Too Precious explores inspirational work by 25 international jewellers using materials for their expressive potential rather than for their intrinsic value. Radical artist jewellers of the late 1960s and 70s vigorously rejected the idea that jewellery should be considered ‘precious’ simply because of the materials of which it was made. Today, the use of a huge variety of materials in jewellery is far more accepted, but economic pressures are putting that freedom of artistic expression at potential risk as people revert to traditionally ‘valuable’ materials for ‘safety’. Not Too Precious challenges preconceptions about ‘non-precious’ materials by encouraging us to consider ‘accrued value’: what talented makers bring to their work through their ideas and skill.
The selected artists, who currently work in the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, create innovative, skilfully-made jewellery that is insightful and culturally resonant. Sometimes poignant, sometimes witty, their work communicates at many levels. It is above all honest and – for want of a better term – not too precious.

Decouverte : Mariko Sumioka, architectured Japan

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Japon (JP),Mariko SUMIOKA (JP) — bijoucontemporain @ 11:24

Mariko Sumioka is a jeweller based in Edinburgh.  Inspired by Japanese traditional architecture and the spirit of Zen, her unique drawings and enamel techniques enable her to explore the inspiration into the wearable jewellery.

and on Facebook

Pray for Japan, Mariko Sumioka http://www.artsthread.com/p/mariko-sumioka
Mariko Sumioka « Pray for Japan » brooch
« I feel awe and respect for natural and man-made objects which have been there and lived since ancient times.
This idea is deeply rooted in my origin: Japanese culture and environments. The Japanese respect, understand and accept nature as one of their members. I am fascinated by Japanese traditional architecture, which is an essential part of human lives as a central part of a culture and a place where people have basic connections with natural surroundings.
I am inspired by Japanese unique architectural characteristics: natural materials and colours, dark and bright contrasts, linear forms, geometric shapes and spaces.
Since human beings live in architecture, there are some reasons in each element. I have researched theoretically and visually into those handed down traditions and tried to bring them into my pieces of jewellery.
My work explores a connection with human bodies and how the wearer and viewer interact with each other, themselves and the objects. Also, studying the principle of Zen and the essence of the Japanese love of nature helps me to understand people’s attitude behind their culture.
Drawing is an essential part of my creation, especially collaging. By adding elements onto others, I always find many different ways of assembling these elements in both drawing and creating jewellery. This technique also helps me to break down my original thoughts into different ideas, and to find new ideas and designs by abstracting elements.
Enamelling with simple colours enables me to explore my images of natural materials and textures which can be found in Japanese architecture. 
I have also challenged and investigated contemporary ideas of jewellery as sculptural objects or body pieces. I do not force people to wear a piece in a certain way, but want people to play with my pieces and find their own ways of wearing them.  » (dazzle-exhibitions)

EXPO ‘OUT THE BLUE’ – Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, Bradford (UK) – 15 Nov. 2012 – 27 Janv 2013

OUT THE BLUE
Nine Electric New Talents

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, which in 2012 celebrates sixteen years at Salts Mill, has selected and exhibited the work of new graduates since its inception. In numerous cases these emerging talents have gone on to gain wide acclaim for their work, and many continue to be represented by the gallery.

" Out The Blue" -  NINE ELECTRIC NEW TALENTS -  IN THIS OLYPMIC YEAR WE ARE PROUD TO INTRODUCE NINE RECENT UK GRADUATES THAT WE 'TIP FOR GOLD'.......     This THURSDAY 15TH NOV 6PM - 9PM    15% OFF ALL WORK BOUGHT ON THE NIGHT.    We are delighted that many of the new graduates will be joining us at this opening event and will be happy to talk about their work with you!    FOR A FULL OUT THE BLUE CATALOGUE PLEASE SEE: www.kathlibbertjewellery.co.uk(‘Reflex’ brooch by Joanna Hemsley)

For Out The Blue Kath Libbert has chosen nine new BA and MA graduates from all over the UK:  ‘Spotting and then supporting the work of cutting edge new graduates has always been extremely central to the ethos of the gallery.  Forging a career straight out of college is really challenging. Now, more than ever, it is vital to exhibit and encourage these incredibly talented jewellers at this formative stage in their careers. In this Olympic year we think we can spot a winner….the gold medalists of the future!’

Just like this year’s graduates, renowned goldsmith Jacqueline Mina, who has won the Jerwood prize for Applied Arts and this year received an OBE for services to Art, started out on her jewellery career over 40 years ago after graduating from the Royal College of Art. She is now exhibited and collected worldwide with pieces in the Victoria & Albert Museum and in the Museum of Art and Design in New York. Currently represented by Libbert she says:

‘Galleries such as Kath Libbert Jewellery play a very important role in the career of the new graduate because they educate and encourage their clients and can also advise budding jewellers to go in a certain direction. With her background in psychology, I think that Kath is particularly good at tuning in to new designers who are prepared to take risks in their own careers, people who will stick it out. Knowing this, collectors have confidence in who Kath selects to be in the gallery’s exhibitions. A new graduate exhibition such as Out The Blue allows collectors to spot someone right at the start and then follow them throughout their career.’

The Nine New Graduates that Libbert Tips for Gold are:

Francesca Flynn, Glasgow School of Art, whose sparkling crystalline collection epitomizes the title of the exhibition, Out The Blue, explores the facets of natural and constructed crystals creating vibrant jewellery. Edinburgh College of Art graduate Mariko Sumioka is inspired by the natural materials used in Japanese architecture and creates elegant pieces that interact sculpturally with the human body.

Joanna Hemsley, RCA, London, makes playful, mobile pieces that surprise and delight by revealing hidden elements, while Cristina Zani, Edinburgh College of Art, creates striking, erudite work inspired by her travels in Seoul and the writings of Italo Calvino.

Amy Logan, Sheffield Hallam University, creates pieces which play with concepts of space, containing and encircling it with elegant swirls of finely curved coloured metal. Heather Woof, Edinburgh College of Art, forms windswept looking pieces from the hardest of metals – titanium and steel, not normally used to express movement as they are so very difficult to work with. Very much inspired by the wild Scottish weather she experienced whilst studying in Scotland!

Also an Edinburgh graduate, Nabla Pall’s work is joyfully colourful, each piece like a miniature modernist painting, inspired by circuses, exotic birds and her early exposure to a multitude of cultures. In contrast, from Central St Martins, London, Yannan Song’s work is meditatively simple – elegant neckpieces in fine stainless steel curves and lines mimic the way that strands of hair rest on the body. Finally Marek Svana, De Montfort University, Banbury, constructs superbly engineered geometric copper bangles, darkly oxidized on their exterior, with contrasting flashes of enamel inside in brilliant primary colours.

ECA 2011 Degree Show – Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh (UK) – 11-19 Juin 2011

 The philosophy of the Jewellery and Silversmithing department is balancing innovation with old and new approaches to traditional craft techniques. Our objective is to design and create personal and individual work that integrates ‘thought’ and ‘practice’ sharing a common sensitivity to the complex relationships that humans form for objects.
Studio work can be made with a wide range of materials, from precious or semi-precious metals and gemstones, to plastics, wood, paper, stone and textile. These materials are bound together through thoughtful and intense periods of studio-based practice underpinned by an ethos of experimentation, innovation and passion.
We support a reflective understanding of the subject within the contexts of contemporary society and its wider industry – to this end the department embraces working with new technology alongside traditional time-honoured techniques and processes.
Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art is managed by a dedicated team of staff, both full- and part-time, who are active in their own professional practice and all of whom have a high profile both nationally and internationally.

 Highlights of the Edinburgh College of Art Degree Show 2011 include:
Jewellery Japanese designer Mariko Sumioka takes her inspiration from elements of traditional Japanese architecture such as linear forms, geometric shapes and natural materials’ colours and texture. Her materials are solid, but the structure of her jewellery is very flexible in order to follow a body line naturally. Mariko has also collaborated with Costume graduate Ilona Russell.
