Manon van Kouswijk Pearl Grey necklace, 2008 / Pearl Grey Revisited necklace, 2015 Glass elements (saucer, hand formed cup handle with attached glass beads), diverse glass and plastic beads, polyester thread, glue.  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Manon van Kouswijk Pearl Grey necklace, 2008 / Pearl Grey Revisited necklace, 2015 Glass elements (saucer, hand formed cup handle with attached glass beads), diverse glass and plastic beads, polyester thread, glue.  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

The original « Pearl Grey » of 2009 was an assemblage work consisting of found and made elements of porcelain, glass, wood, plastic and pearl. It referenced a traditional cup and saucer of which the cup had been magically replaced by a bead necklace. For this new work I have translated that idea to the typology of a glass ‘saucer and cup’. It is again a combination of found and made elements but this time the work is completely transparent; almost like an x-ray of it’s predecessor

Gésine Hackenberg Still Life, 2009 / Pink Balancing Glass brooch, 2015 Glass by Theresienthal, silver  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Gésine Hackenberg Still Life, 2009 / Pink Balancing Glass brooch, 2015 Glass by Theresienthal, silver  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

The ‘Still Life’ Brooches that I have made between 2009 and 2012 can be seen as a contemporary interpretation of 17th and 18th century Dutch Still Life paintings. This subject was preferable used to portray items of daily life that were emotionally and economically significant for people of that time.  Within my ‘Still Lifes’, I sliced existing glasswork and rearranged them into new compositions. They represented a perfect translation of the three dimensional to the two dimensional, the realistic vista of the glasses to the medium of jewellery. The body is taking on the role of the canvas as it were…  Within the new work I explored another way of looking at tableware than in a static composition: I wanted to express a certain precarious dynamic that is inherent to drinking glasses during a sociable meal. I tried to catch this moment of a glass tumbling, undecided yet if it is going to fall or stay upright.

 Sari Liimatta But I love Him object, 2005 / But they don´t love him pendant, 2015 Glass beads, metal link, thread (polyamide), a plastic toy  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Sari Liimatta But I love Him object, 2005 / But they don´t love him pendant, 2015 Glass beads, metal link, thread (polyamide), a plastic toy  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

Just as men are not just men, and women just women, meat is never just meat. It has it´s past and origin, a story which is so often simply forgotten. Living creatures which are very much alive until they are nothing more than materials, for those who still choose to use them. Even the life before their death is so often more than problematic, as we all know. As we all know.

 Annelies Planteijdt Beautiful City - Pink Stairs necklace, 2001 / Beautiful City-Pink Stairs Black Crystal necklace, 2015 Gold, Tantalum, pigment  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Annelies Planteijdt Beautiful City – Pink Stairs necklace, 2001 / Beautiful City-Pink Stairs Black Crystal necklace, 2015 Gold, Tantalum, pigment  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015 

 I started to re-consider a piece from 2001, that never has been sold, although I liked it very much, ‘Beautiful City – Pink Stairs’.  This piece is really symmetrical, so I decided to look for a way to separate it in two parts and finish both parts in a different way, in order to get two different pieces. I have re-collected parts of other (unsold) pieces from about the same time (1999 and 2000) and have been re-approaching and re-thinking them: I made ‘Crystals’ with them, like I did in my most recent work. So I have been mixing time and thinking. And size: the sizes I used earlier were different from the sizes I used in the later ‘Beautiful City’ series, they wouldn’t have fit. But because the ‘Crystals’ are liquid (they adapt to the square) the size of the elements was not importantanymore. So I could re-take these old pieces into the new time now, I have re-used them, re-connected them.
This ‘expansion’ offered me more possibilities: I re-used the material I already had without loss of material or time. The possibility to re-make the old pieces still exists. And it gave me two new pieces. So I multiplied my possibilities. A new life.

 Noon Passama Formal Research - A necklace, 2015 / Formal Research - H rings, 2015 Rigid clay, silver, gold  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Noon Passama Formal Research – A necklace, 2015 / Formal Research – H rings, 2015 Rigid clay, silver, gold  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

 Formal Research – A necklace (2015) composing of six chain units is the starting point of the group of six rings. A closed-end loop of each ring was divided in sections, one / two / three /… / six, by the difference between the fat and thin parts. The works were made under the following keywords: dividing / sequencing / sizing.
Formal Research initially focused on one classical type of jewellery: the chain. The project is mainly about the form of each connecting chain unit and how the unit connects to its neighbours.
During the sculpting process, the shapes were transformed because of them being in the hand and through time. I did not edit the outcomes and will present the rings as they are. The try-outs are the finals and vice versa.

 Stefano Marchetti Untitled brooch, 2007 / Untitled Revisited brooch, 2015 Silver, silver and titan powder, epoxy resin  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Stefano Marchetti Untitled brooch, 2007 / Untitled Revisited brooch, 2015 Silver, silver and titan powder, epoxy resin  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.:

 In the Nineties, in the making of the older brooch, my goal was to control the metal, to have the metal do whatever I wanted. In this latest brooch, made a few days ago, I let instead the metal take control over myself, and let it take me wherever its will would go.

The reason why I chosen my self-portrait, is that it is probably one of my most well known pieces of jewellery. It is made in steel and etched.  The material and techniques I mostly work with. For the Re-version I saw out the silhouette in 2 mm veneer, divided the image in 3 parts and painted them in similar but for each piece different colours, before I glued them together. The fact that they are divided in three parts, with the dark sawing-line between, gives them a comic-like impression.
This impression is even emphasised by the bigger size, which is possible by the lightness of the material, and is completely different from the original steel-one. While the surface of the steel-portrait and other previous work was the key technology for building the image, the colour for some years been a part of my jewellery.


To revisit, remake, salvage, reinterpret, adapt, convert, converse, rethink…
  Why have we asked some of the artists we work with as gallery owners to reinterpret one of their works? We could say it’s because we’re interested in talking about time. And by “revisiting” we mean discussing the notion of time. But in what way? That’s the question.
Time passes, it is made, interpreted, felt and suffered, it escapes, drifts away, becomes trapped or stretched, sometimes it is intelligently ignored and, why not, it is exercised. Reinterpreting a work, a fiction or precis is a way of addressing time, a way of exploring a landscape in order to try and understand it. And we thought this exercise would provide an interesting opportunity to discuss time.
Revisiting in order to reflect… an exercise for the artist.
  Are there any changes in these artists’ works? Should there be? Is time involved? Without a shadow of a doubt, the answer is yes. But that barely scrapes the surface of what we want to know.
We’re more likely to find out what we want to know if the work enables us to answer questions such as: What kind of time is involved? Is there any usefulness? Is there any spirituality? Are there any aesthetics? Is there any abstraction? Is there any progress?
The exhibition is also designed to be understood through an analysis of the different types of answers provided by the works as a whole. As you will see, there are answers that simplify, offering minor changes, non-answers, coherent answers (if you have prior knowledge of the artist’s trajectory), inspired answers, uninventive answers… As we have said, evaluating the “revisits” as a whole provides additional knowledge.
When it comes down to it, what we most value is the sensation we observe and feel when the artist takes some distance and moves away from the centre stage in an attempt to provide an answer. As observers, we believe this circumstance helps to achieve universality and thus provide an intellectual satisfaction, that of communicating and objectifying the creation to the full in order to express and play with a more authentic reality.
Revisiting in order to look afresh… the viewer’s exercise.
We switch from observation to understanding, and vice versa. We observe in order to find differences between similar things and we understand when we find similarities between different things. Accustomed as we are today to viewing several pieces in a highly random fashion, pausing to stop in order to take a fresh look at a work “inaugurated” some time ago is another exercise we wish to propose. This exercise may help us assimilate better in this era of accumulation and, on occasions, superficiality. There can be no doubt that the way in which a work attracts and engages us is based on the knowledge we may have of it.
Knowledge without criticism is an indication of the end of everything. Yet, on the other hand, what can be said of criticism without knowledge? Are we capable of enjoying what these workers of art offer us? Will we be capable of evaluating what they show us? Can we offer knowledge-based criticism? Frankly, we find there is a lack of humility on the part of the viewer. And we’re all viewers.
Let’s enjoy this opportunity.

EXPO ‘ SIMON COTTRELL – timbre’ – Sienna Patti, Lenox (USA) – 27 Juin-19 Juill. 2015

The specific combination of qualities within a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds of the same pitch and volume is its ‘timbre’. While Simon Cottrell‘s works are tangible and far less transient than any sound can ever be, this term which defines the inherent small differences within similarities seems more than apt to apply. The ongoing and slowly shifting use of certain preset parameters with only a singular material, monel, and an achromatic palette, has become his formal language. Working within this sameness has lead him to focus more closely on the possible variances within those systems of working, and heightens the sensitivity to relationships between tiny details within one piece or acrosspast works.

“I have no need to hurry or progress in leaps and bounds. Each piece is conceived primarily for an existence in collaborating with a wearer towards their communication of self. From a wearer’s perspective, prior relationships between other earlier works of mine are insignificant. As ever my work retains a decisive avoidance of direct allusions or clearly resolved representation. This is not so much by thorough pre-­‐planning, rather by only allowing coy suggestions of subjects to repeatedly rise in a responsive and intuitive process of making, and then continuing countering those subjects. The result usually evokes something between anything and nothing.”

The SCHMUCK is an international exhibition that has been taking place in Munich for more than 50 years. It combines works of established artists and promising newcomers in the area of contemporary jewellery design and is the meeting place for collectors, jewellery lovers and museum curators from Germany and abroad. Organized as a worldwide contest, the works are chosen by an internationally renowned curator each year, this time by Eva Eisler, professor at the Prague Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (AAAD). “Presenting works at the SCHMUCK is an honor for any jewellery designer“, says Dieter Dohr, Management Board Chairman of the GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH. That is also why this time, more than 600 gold smiths and jewellery designers from Germany and abroad applied for the special show. In spring 2015, contributions by 63 artists from 21 countries will finally be on display. This time, Karel Novak from the Czech Republic will be honored as the classic of modern art. Highlight of the SCHMUCK will be the awarding of the Herbert-Hofmann-prizes on Saturday, 14 March 2015 at 5 pm on stage in hall B1. On this day, a jury will select the three best works of the SCHMUCK. Each year, a number of accompanying events group around the special show at the Internationale Handwerksmesse in Munich galleries, museums and cultural institutes.

EXPO ‘Give Me A Spoon’ – ATTA Gallery, Bangkok (Thailand) – 2 Oct.-9 Nov. 2014

Give Me A Spoon - – ATTA Gallery (Bangkok, Thailand)

« Give Me A Spoon” is the result of a challenge proposed by the curator Vipoo Srivilasa, in his residence at Canada. Vipoo Srivilasa wanted to withdraw the artists from their comfort zone, translating their practice into a new kind of work. The result are very different pieces, with a mix of techniques and processes but they’re all spoons.

Give Me A Spoon - - ATTA Gallery

 » It all started in September 2013 with my residency in Canada, where I challenged all of the residents to a spoon competition. The spoons created during this competition travelled to an exhibition in Kansas City and are now off to Boston with my OBJECT: SPOON project.
As all this was happening, ATTA Gallery saw a potential of a spoon exhibition in Bangkok.
I am excited to work with ATTA Gallery to stage an exhibition that explores the notion of spoon as wearable art. The exhibition features artists who work in different media from around the world. The idea is to challenge artists to create something that they do not normally create and exercise their creativity by translating their practice into a new kind of work. Most importantly, it is for the artists to have fun! »  Vipoo Srivilasa, Curator

EXPO ‘Pensieri Preziosi 9 : Contemporary Australian Jewellery’ – Oratorio di San Rocco, Padova (Italy) – 30 Nov. 2013 – 23 Fevr. 2014

Pensieri Preziosi 9 : Contemporary Australian Jewellery 

Oratorio di San Rocco (Padova, Italy) 30-Nov-2013 – 23-Feb-2014

 This exhibition allows visitors to get to know, appreciate and examine highly original works created by eight specially chosen artists who have studied at the most important University of Design on the continent of Australia, under the guidance of Prof. Robert Baines”, notes Andrea Colasio, the Municipal Councillor for Culture. Robert Baines is Emeritus Professor at the RMIT University of Melbourne, and together with Nicholas Bastin, Simon Cottrell, Kirsten Haydon, Linda Hughes, Christopher Milbourne, Nicole Polentas and Katherine Wheeler, they have created an exhibition with about one hundred works that will give the Italian public the chance to get to know and appreciate the styles of Australian research goldsmithing.
The works selected for this exhibition use poor materials alongside precious gold, with original and unusual working techniques that combine tradition and innovation: they are conceptually complicated pieces which aim to express each individual artist’s thoughts, feelings and artistic reflection of both the past and the present.
According to Baines, the “poetry of making” needs a tòpos, a real and metaphorical “place” where you can create jewellery. In this search for the tòpos, the artist identifies and indicates four major areas for his students to focus on in order to design and create contemporary jewellery. The tòpos of the “found object”, namely remnants of industrial materials, discarded objects from everyday life, collected and reused by offering them a new dimension and new life; the tòpos of intimate space, personal and private, one’s own body, the home, individual and subjective memories; the tòpos of public space, streets, exteriors and architecture; and the tòpos of history and culture which is inevitably linked to history and personal thoughts.
Australian contemporary jewellery is mainly conceptual, displaying skilful technical experimentation in its use of materials, with a keen focus on personal and collective history, as well as elegant forms with echoes linked to the past but also to modern daily life. At times this produces abstract, fantastical and poetic results which often have a veil of nostalgic irony.
This conceptual process often leads to interpretations that unwind like true stories, real or surreal tales where the works of art are the main characters within a careful and well-thought-out procedure of research and planning.

EXPO ‘Dialogue’ – Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h, Montréal (Québec, Canada) – 5-28 April, 2013

Dialogue: International Exhibition Contemporary Jewellery by Emerging Artists

L’univers du bijou contemporain évolue de manière fulgurante depuis une trentaine d’années. Cependant toujours  peu connu du grand public, ce champ relativement nouveau progresse en marge de la joaillerie traditionnelle en rassemblant de créateurs de la relève dont les démarches novatrices contribuent à l’enrichissement de la pratique ainsi qu’à son rayonnement international.

Cette exposition exceptionnelle intitulée Dialogue, rassemble les œuvres de 22 jeunes créateurs d’Allemagne, d’Australie, du Danemark, des États-Unis, du Japon, des Pays-Bas, de Suède et du Canada. La diversité des propositions permet d’entrevoir les maintes possibilités créatives et expressives dans le domaine du bijou contemporain. La collection réunit l’art de façonner, valorise les matériaux utilisés, fait preuve d’originalité et d’expérimentation, reflète l’esprit du temps et une vision du monde, mais aussi questionne le métier et les valeurs inhérentes du bijou. Le titre de l’exposition exprime le dialogue de l’artiste avec la matière et le concept, l’œuvre et le spectateur.

Des œuvres  de cette nouvelle génération de créateurs se retrouvent déjà dans plusieurs collections muséales internationales en autres Andrea Wagner au Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, Despo Sophocleous de Halifax et Laura Deakin à la Pinakothek der Moderne Museum de Munich. Récemment, Les collections du Schmuck Museum de Pforzheim et du Röhsska Museum de Suède se sont enrichis de créations de Märta Mattsson. De nombreux prix ont également récompensé et salué leur travail d’exception.
Du 3 mai au 16 juin, le Harbourfront Centre de Toronto accueillera l’exposition dans le cadre des conférences de la Society of North American Goldsmiths.

EXPO ‘Once More, With Love’ – studio2017, Waterloo, Sydney (AU) – 31 Juill.–18 Aout 2012

Once More, With Love


Many people are unaware of the darker side of jewellery production – the ethical issues, including the exploitation of workers, damage to the environment, resource depletion, as well as health issues for jewellers themselves. As makers of jewellery we acknowledge that our field interacts with complex notions of ‘want’ versus ‘need’. Hence we are aware of the importance of taking responsibility for how our individual practices may affect the needs and livelihoods of communities and environments globally.


Once More, With Love is a not-for-profit travelling jewellery exhibition raising concepts of sustainability, recycling and ethical production. The project involves over 30kg of unwanted jewellery items donated by the Australian public which have been reworked ‘with love’ for this exhibition by a diverse selection of twenty one contemporary jewellers all with a proven interest in ethical making and recycled materials.  The works created for Once More, With Love propose a potential new life cycle for materials, while creating space for reflecting on their origins. The project is an opportunity for people to experience what creative minds can do with recycled materials in an everyday studio context.

The Once More, With Love project was started in 2010 by Suse Scholem, a contemporary jeweller from Melbourne who is passionate about sustainability and the power of art and community engagement. Suse was inspired by the activities of the American group Ethical Metalsmiths, who have significantly increased ethical/sustainability awareness in the American jewellery industry.  The Once More, With Love project grew from the success of a Melbourne-based jewellery recycling project organised by Suse.  As interest in the project grew, a significant number of jewellers became involved, and internationally respected jewellery artist Simon Cottrell, took on the role of co-curator. Along the way, the project has attracted significant patrons such as Dr Kevin Murray, Vice President of the World Craft Council, Asia Region, and Katie Scott Director of Gallery Funaki, Melbourne.

After Sydney, the exhibition will be heading to Canberra in October 2012 and then to Melbourne in early 2013.

In addition to the touring exhibition, the Once More, With Love project will involve events in each host city incorporating community discussions; as well as an ongoing website with information about issues relevant to the ethical sustainable implications of jewellery resources. The entire project was conceived with the aim of bringing the entire breadth of the jewellery community together to enter a dialogue around sustainable/ethical practice.  The project will be culminating in a weekend seminar in Melbourne Autumn 2013 which is still in planning

EXPO ‘The Year was 2006′ – Studio2017, Waterloo NSW (AU) – 19-30 Juin 2012


An exhibition of 100 jewellery pieces made in 2006

The Year Was 2006 Waterloo Australia exhibitions unique custom jewelry custom handmade jewellery exhibitions

2006. It was a common year that started on a Sunday. John Howard was PM and Pluto was no longer classified as a planet. It is often bandied about that art is a reflection of our society; intrigued, we set out to find what 2006 might have looked like in terms of contemporary jewellery. 100 jewellers from across the globe have been invited to present one piece of jewellery they made 6 years ago. Presented as a salon hang, this exhibition will showcase an incredibly diverse array of jewellery and will give an overall snapshot of what these jewellers were thinking, making and the materials they were using all those years ago in 2006.

Simon COTTRELL – are we looking at small machines, or … animals ?

Classé dans : Australie (AU),Gal. Funaki (AU),metal,Simon COTTRELL (AU),www KitandCaboodle — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

I create objects that address their nature or utility only by achieving an honesty towards it. I often use shapes that present various allusions while never overtly depicting any single subject. These pieces are drawn from an attempt to embody two subtle paradoxes… the possibilities of a tenuous calm or of complex simplicities. The edges of simple forms are broken so that the defining outline is unclear; simple allusions to nature are broken by an obvious man-made production.(Simon Cottrell at Gallery Funaki)

Simon Cottrell - brooch ‘Five dimples two whites and a tail’ 2007 – Monel, stainless steel, plastic coating

« In recent work I am aiming to trigger various quiet yet resonant contradictions that blur our abilty to make clear sense of the things we see. There is both simplicity and complexity, static and growth, volume and lightness, randomness and order, monotone and dynamic, tension and calm, in the forms and structural details. Initially appearing quite austere, the more time we engage with each piece the less definitive they become. If there is a possibility of a clear line between my work being perceived as one way or another, I will often try to sit on that line. Exactly where that line lies however all depends on the attentiveness of the viewer. When we are presented with forms that are evocative of something familiar yet ambiguous, our curiosity is triggered and our visual engagement is lengthened…  it is never clear, are we looking at small machines or floral bouquets?… monsters or clouds?… plants or animals ? » (Simon Cottrell on NoovoEditions)

« What we might see as being ‘simple’ always has an underlying ‘complexity’. What we sense as being ‘calm’ is in actual fact, only a balance of ‘tensions’ at a level beneath our immediate perception. Our perception of things as being one way or another depends on the level of our sensory attentiveness.
The visual ‘simplicity’ of a single leaf contains a complexity within its moisture laden cellular structure. It could also be said that each singular cell is ‘simple’ in relation to the complex structure it lies within. And of course further again that singular cell has a deeper atomic complexity in relation to the singularity of the cell in itself.
Complex or simple…Calm or tense…Serious or playful…Ordered or random… Blurred or clear… Singular or multiple… Static or growing…Flat or with volume…Man-made or natural…
If there is a clear line between my work being one way or another, I will often try to sit on that line.
Exactly where that line lies however, all depends on the attentiveness of the viewer.
The degree of our sensory attentiveness of course plays a fundamental role in the human creative process.
It is sensory attentiveness that enables us to understand the nature of cause and effect within the production of material artifact. It allows us to absorb the delicacies of the methods used and the intricate details of their specific outcomes.
Every new physical manipulation of material, or thought about compositional elements is informed by a bank of previous insights which allows a kind of prediction as to what will happen, and sets up further questions as to the potentials for future possibilities.
By simply gaining more insight into the nature and manner of our pre-thought perception it gives greater clarity into how and what has been done and also to what may be done next within the creative process.
While my work is of course a direct embodiment of my own mental/physical processes, it is also devised as a metaphor for the inherent nature of the processes themselves.
Neither my work nor I will ever scream a definitive manifesto of our aims and intentions. I am not really attempting to tell you anything. I am simply materialising my view of the ‘nature of things’, which in turn is just giving you something to look at, and hopefully bringing you in closer.
Getting used to looking closely at small things, will always leads us to look even closer at larger things.
