Kee Ho YuenKee Ho Yuen
Kee-ho Yuen received a B.A. from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1983 and an M.F.A. in Metalsmithing and Jewelry from The University of Iowa (UI), US in 1989. He is currently a Professor and the Head of the UI Jewelry and Metal Arts program.
Kee-ho looks at his work as an evolving collage of both the philosophy and the sensibility of the East and West. His work is an aesthetic investigation as well as a quest to whimsically comment on human emotions and interactions. Kee-ho employs an eclectic use of contemporary and traditional technologies and materials, ranging from advanced 3-D computer modeling to traditional fabrications and enameling.

Tricia TangTricia Tang
While born and bred in Hong Kong, Tricia Tang Tsz Chong has spent 5 years in Australia. Her jewellery practice reflects the intimate relationship, individual identities and cultural permutations that have resulted from her experience of different culture. The objects she makes blend past (her occurrence) with present (contemporary materials) to produce distinctive narrations. Without a limitation on materials, Tang enjoys testing and finding the most appropriate materials for each of her concept and work. Tang believes a piece of jewellery can be no difference than a contemporary art piece, jewellery is an object without limitation and with a strong notion of statement within.

Mary Lee HuMary Lee Hu
Mary Lee Hu (born 1943 in Lakewood, Ohio) is an American artist, goldsmith, and college level educator known for using textile techniques to create intricate woven wire jewelry.
Hu first became fascinated with metalwork during high school introductory courses. She later explored more work with metals during a summer camp. She went on to attend the University of Miami, Ohio for two years and then went to Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan to complete her undergraduate degree. During her undergraduate education Hu developed her skills and continued to work with small scale metalwork and jewelry. In 1966 while earning her graduate degree in Metalsmithing from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois, Hu studied under renowned metalsmith L. Brent Kington. It was during this time that Hu started to work with fiber inspired techniques after taking a fiber arts course. This led to the development of her signature style of wire wrapped jewelry. Since the late 1960s Hu has developed new techniques in coiling, wrapping, weaving, knitting, and twining wire. Her work consists mostly woven wire earrings, rings, bracelets, brooches, and neckpieces that emulate natural forms, movements and symmetry.
After completing her MFA, Hu traveled to various places and took up different teaching positions until she joined the metal arts program in the University of Washington School of Art in 1980. She retired from the University as professor emeritus in 2006.
Hu is a member and past-president of the Society of North American Goldsmiths. In 1996 Hu was inducted into the American Craft Council College of Fellows. Hu has received three National Endowment of the Arts Craftsman Fellowships. Her work is in major collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Renwick Gallery, the American Crafts Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. Hu is the winner of the 2008 Irving and Yvonne Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.

EXPO ‘Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined’ – Bellevue Arts Museum, Bellevue, WA (USA) – 7 Fevr.-17 Juin 2012

Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined: The Jewelry of Mary Lee Hu

February 7 – June 17, 2012

« You’ve heard it said, « All that glitters is not gold. » Well, in this exquisite exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum, the glitter certainly is gold. Gold and silver jewelry worked so dramatically and precisely that the sparkle astounds, delights and amazes. » — Nancy Worssam, The Seattle Times

Over the past 40 years, Mary Lee Hu has affirmed her distinctive voice in the world of jewelry with her elegant, voluptuous creations. Using wire the way hand weavers use thread, Hu has blazed a trail as both artist and innovator, exploring the nexus between metalsmithing and textile techniques. Keen to metal’s ability to bend and manipulate light within a textured surface, Hu’s work is a testament to her sophisticated eye for weightless and rhythmic lines, translated into body adornment. Featuring more than 90 exquisite earrings, rings, brooches and neckpieces drawn from public and private collections internationally, this retrospective traces Hu’s evolution from her experimental designs of the 1960s to today’s creations full of light and movement.

Join the artist for a rare, two-day, wire working workshop on May 12 & 13.

Mary Lee Hu … Using metal the way clothiers use thread – de l’OR, pour une fois …..

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Mary Lee HU (US),techniques textiles,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 1:05

Mary Lee Hu uses twined structures in 18- and 22-karat gold to create extraordinary pieces of jewelry which are impeccably crafted. She has developed a double twining technique for her exquisite earrings, rings, brooches and neckpieces. Her elegant work explores intricate patterns and surface texture. She weaves with 18k and 22k gold wires, using multiple warps and wefts. » (Arline Fisch, Textile Techniques in Metal)

Habituellement, l’or et moi ça fait deux ….  mais là ! c’est au-delà du matériau ! devant cette technique époustouflante et qui pourtant à l’air … de couler de source, chapeau bas !

Et, encore une fois, j’aimerais TOUCHER ! est-ce que c’est souple ? doux ? mouvant ? rigide ?….

Hu was introduced to jewelry and metalsmithing in high school. She was also exposed to small scale metalworking during a summer camp program. She was immediately attracted to the scale of the work, the processes and the image of herself wearing what she made. She went to University of Miami, Ohio for two years and then went to Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield, Michigan to complete her undergraduate degree. Hu learned various metals techniques. What was so unique about this experience is that at that time the student body was composed of mostly graduate students. Hu went on to graduate school at University of Southern Illinois at Carbondale. Her work consisted mostly of jewelry and small scale objects. Hu’s designs were based on natural forms, movements and symmetry. During her graduate education, Brent Kington (her professor) encouraged her to seek for and develop her style. Kington’s commitment to metalworking was inspiring to Hu. He became a very strong role model for her and her classmates. Kington, at the time, did not have his own separate studio and worked in the main studio with his students. Hu worked directly across from her professor. During her second year of graduate school Hu started to investigate weaving and knotting techniques with wire. She wanted to emulate the lines in her sketches in her metalwork. Hu quickly noticed that the twined wire recreated this effect.
One advantage to working in this manner is ease of portability of tools and supplies. This aspect suited Hu’s lifestyle during that period of her life, since she was frequently traveling. Upon her return to the United States, Hu entered numerous competitions to build up an exhibition record.
Hu also became involved with the Society of North American Goldsmiths. She served as president and was also a contributing member to the development of the organization. Hu is also involved with the American Craft Council and the World Crafts Council. She currently is a professor at University of Washington, Seattle. Hu has exhibited extensively nationall and internationally.
