Amber in Contemporary Art Jewellery -  Putti Art Gallery (Rīga, Latvia) 23-May-2014 -
Nikolai Balabin (brooch ?)

The core idea of the exhibition is to demonstrate the possible range of application of amber in the contemporary art jewellery created by professional jewellers.  This area of interest is largely based on the specific materiality of amber – and its historical significance. The choice of exhibition organizers to choose „Amber Road” as the thematic background is not accidental; it played a significant role between 1st and 5th centuries AD as an exchange route of goods between the Baltic Sea region and Roman Empire. The route started in the eastern coastal area of the Baltic Sea, which at that time was inhabited by the Prussians and Curonians. It continued down the Visla up to the city of Karnunta (currently in Hungary) and further to the coast of the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine peninsula, providing Rome with the precious and exclusive material. Many Roman coins and antiquities found in the graveyards in the Baltic countries is perceived as the evidence of this trade route together with testimonies in the writings of Roman Empire era. Thus not only will Latvian and Italian jewellers participate in the exhibition but also artists from countries that Amber Road passed through (Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Austria, Slovenia, and Hungary). This exhibition will not only link the Amber Road geographically, but also historically by connecting the ancient times with the present, the past with the future and demonstrating the spectacular miracle of amber jewellery creation.

The stage of the exhibition is set by an internationally renowned fashion designer brand “MAREUNROL’S”. The fashion designers – Mārīte Mastiņa and Rolands Pēterkops created their first joint collection in 2002 while still being students at Riga Applied Art College. Since then, they have participated and received awards in various international fashion and arts festivals, including the International Fashion and Photography Festival in Hyeres (France). ( and )

Exhibition catalogue is designed by Kirils Kirasirovs and the text authors are Una Meistere and Daiga Rudzāte. The catalogue is issued by the arts and culture portal “Arterritory” (

The catalogue publishing is supported by “Rīga 2014″.

COUP de COEUR ! Pawel KACZYNSKI where textile meets metal

« pawel kaczynski : metal pleats, crinkles and wrinkles »

« Textile meets jewelry in an explosion of color and texture in this body of work.  The closures on Kaczynski’s cuffs and collars are a striking example of how an artist’s work can sing when the functional elements of a piece are incorporated into the design. I want to touch them and memorize the way they feel under my fingers.  Wrinkles have never been so sexy.«  (

EXPO ‘STFZ.EKO’ – Legnica (Pologne) – 3rd weekend May 2010 (15-16 mai 2010)

Goldsmithing Artists’ Association Exhibition

« An idea that has been in preparation for two years, and finally is ready : an exhibition called « STFZ. EKO. » Premiere during the Silver Fair in Legnica, on the third weekend in May 2010.
The reason such a theme of the competition was an observation that « in the projects and works presented by goldsmith artists at galleries and museums it is easy to notice that the natural world, animals, plants and humans has been an inspiration for a lot of us. » Indeed, the submitted works are a kind of mine of ideas taken from nature, associated with nature, or providing an idea for successful recycling. The last group includes such objects as a scourer, fish tin, or a necklace made of both primary recycled elements. In other categories there was a really wide variety: spelt, cinnamon, felt, honeycomb, walnut, wood, stones found on a beach, leaves, insects, birds, dried fruits, organic partridge eggs, flowers, coffee, tea, and of course, amber. The products were combined, in surprising ways, with silver, steel, copper, glass, plexi or acrylic. Altogether 57 works were submitted by 31 contestants – the Goldsmithing Artists’ Association members.
Wojciech Rygało, an exhibition curator said: « We were surprised with high attendance, which means the topic is interesting and catchy. We were also very impressed with the variety of the work submitted – although all the works were kept around the « ecological » theme, yet the technical solutions and combinations of materials were really impressive. I am convinced that a really interesting exhibition will be created of these works, and it will be shown in different places in Poland: first off, in Legnica, and then in a few other interesting places. » » (Anna

«  Exhibition STFZ.ECO presents works of members of the Goldsmithing Artists’ Association, which took part in the discussion about status and condition of world of nature. They show by the forms of jewellery its beauty and excellent composition, but also destructive human activity. It is the constructive, sometimes critical or even aggressive, sometimes gentle and subtle, but above all very authentic voice.«

COUP de COEUR ! bracelets …. Polonais !

J’avoue que je n’y comprends pas grand’chose, à part que j’en ai déduit que « bransoleta » voulait dire « bracelet » (puisque, c’est logique, « naszyjnik » voulait dire collier …. ;-) ), et que …. il y avait sur cette page qui parle de … je ne sais quoi… de « fichtre » beaux bracelets !!! :-) donc les voici, brut de « déchiffrage », tant il est vrai que ce qui est beau parle de lui-même …..

Contemporary Polish Jewellery

To mark the anniversary of Poland’s entry to the European Union (in 2004) , Flow gallery is linking up with Gallery Bielak, Krakow.
Director of Flow gallery, Yvonna Demczynska, has selected a group of British jewellers with the intention of representing a diverse hand of the most innovative makers on the contemporary scene. Running parallel to her endeavours, Andrzej Bielak, together with the Polish Association of Jewellery Artists, has picked out a body of work that effectively highlights the excellence in current Polish jewellery.
Andrzej Bielak is at the fore of promoting Poland’s fine art jewellery, having co-founded the Association of Jewellery Artists. We will not be let down by his knowledge, passion or commitment. We particularly look forward to seeing his award winning work.
In drawing attention to some of the jewellers selected, let us look at Bohdan Jan Suchodolski. He has shown in solo and group shows internationally, where his precious materials combine with the more unorthodox. Also taking a mixed media approach are Antek Zaremski and Arkadiusz Wolski. Interestingly, Arkadiusz studied oceanography but set up his own jewellery workshop on graduation. He favours amber, but also employs metal to explore his ideas.

Also changing tack in career post-university is Jacek Byczewski. Having studied sculpture at the Acadamy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Jacek became a jeweller. From this turning point in 1973 Jacek has gone on to berepresented at over 90 international exhibitions, with work in both public and private collections.
Agnieszka Bruzda‘s executes her simple forms exclusively in metal, as does Mariusz Pajaczkowski. Mariusz lives and works in Warsaw, having co-founded the university gallery ‘Brama’. He uses a variety of precious metals.
Jacek A. Rochacki descends from the well known artist/jeweller family. His distinguished career having seen him win multiple awards at the SILVER competitions in Legnica.

The list of work coming to Flow Gallery is completed by that of Pawel Kaczynski, Bogumil Bytomski, Marcin Tyminski, Krzysztof Roszkiewicz, Krzysztof Piotrowski, Jan Wiszniewski, Maryla Maria Dubiel and Aleksandra i Jakub Wyganowscy.

Jewellery travelling to Poland from Yoko Izawa, Alison Macleod, Katy Hackney, Kaz Robertson, Katie Murphy, Kayo Saito, Jane Adam, Hannah Lamb, Carla Edwards, Tanja Ufer, Katie Clarke, Angela O’Kelly and Laura Baxter.

The trade between Flow Gallery and Gallery Bielak looks to be stimulating and thoughtful. It’s scope maybe necessarily defined, but it is hoped that the transfer of ideas will extend beyond that solely between Britain and Poland.
