« Alchimiajewellery school presents ‘Tastes just like chicken….’ the Quaternitas exhibition 2011, curated by Ruudt Peters.
Michelle Kraemer and Maru Lopez present the final results after a yearlong development under the guidance of their tutor and curator. The work of both started with an exploration of gender, identity, sex, skin, touch, within the borders generated around those concepts by the individual and society.
The artists have worked in a close dialogue and with corresponding materials like fabric, latex, nylon and foam, but the resulting jewellery pieces show clearly their difference in cultural identity and personal interest.
Set up in the beautiful entrance hall of Alchimia, the exhibition is articulated in two installations referring to the display of ‘organic material’ , one related to commerce (the butcher) the other to curiosity and science (the natural history museum).«

Metalsmith and jeweler Sung-Yeoul Lee , “Intimacy” exhibition, August 8-19 and lecture, Friday, August 19, 3:00 pm in the Mark A. Chapman Gallery, Willard Hall, Kansas State University

EXPO 'Intimacy' - Chapman Gallery, Kansas State University (USA) - 8-19 Aout 2011 dans Exposition/Exhibition 174886_259108687439281_913003_n

MANHATTAN —Kansas State University Department of Art will present a lecture by internationally recognized metalsmith and jeweler Sung-Yeoul Lee, August 19, 3:00pm in the Mark A. Chapman Gallery, Willard Hall on Kansas State University campus. In addition to his lecture, Mr. Lee will present his collection of works in the exhibition “Intimacy” in the Mark A. Chapman Gallery from August 8-19.

Sung-Yeoul Lee is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in Jewelry and Metals at Oklahoma State University. He holds a MFA in Metals from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a BFA from Kookmin University in Korea. After graduation, he served as an artist in residence at Appalachian Center for Craft for two years.

Lee’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, and he has received numerous awards, most notably the Grand Prize at the Cheongju International Craft Biennale in 2003. His works are in permanent collections in the Cheongju Craft Museum in Korea and Sparta Teapot Museum in North Carolina, and have been published in several books.

Sung-Yeoul Lee, as Professor Robert Coogan writes, “explores a range of work from hollowware to more personal jewelry. His intention for his work is that the wearer/owner has a personal relationship with the jewelry. Sung’s current work evolved from having foreign objects pass through the body and his newer work seems to show the jewelry emerging from the body as a growth or an emergence into the light of those precious elements that make us all individuals. He seeks to form an intimate bond between the wearer and the jewelry but it goes on to have a much greater impact. The work creates an intimate relationship between the wearer and an observer. Almost like the bearing of one’s soul.”

Sung-Yeoul Lee

« My goal is associating the idea of intimacy in jewelry object to the body. Intimacy is intrinsic to the jewelry/wearer relationship. Historically, individuals have worn jewelry not only to adorn their body but to express their physical or mental condition. As conceptual approaches to jewelry making today became popular, jewelry artists keep trying to consciously communicate their thoughts through the jewelry works. Jewelry are no longer simply body adornment; some widen our senses and challenge our perceptions. For these reasons, the idea of intimacy became a significant source of inspiration.
In my current body of works, I am trying to visualize intimate relationship between jewelry form and our body. I cast single or group of precious stone shapes which symbolize ‘Jewelry’ and they are embedded, inserted or growing in the organic form and it represented extension of human body. To do so, my works indicate a deep affinity and ties with wearer. I feel that it expresses the physical and conceptual connection between piece and wearer. It is important to me that the wearers can be able to feel themselves connected with the jewelry while wearing my works.  »

Theresa Hauser
Theresa Hauser - « gold chain » necklace – crocheted yarn, sterling silver
FIRST MERIT AWARD
« the gold chain necklace is an iconic style of necklace that i found to be suited for reproduction in this manner. yarn and thread are used in place of the original precious metal. this alteration inherently conveys a sense of playfulness and fun, but attempts to have as much appeal as the original inspiration. after all, the point is for them to be enjoyed »

Nicole Jacquard
Nicole Jacquard – ‘Wallpaper ‘ -  Silver, fine silver, gypsum powder, silk thread- 2009
« Within my work I am interested in exploring the themes of; the souvenir, ornamentation, memory, longing, and nostalgia associated with the collection of personal objects. I am interested in how ordinary everyday objects transcend the mundane through the association of memory thus becoming personal and precious. Overall my work draws reference to objects that I’ve collected, objects that were hand made or mass produced but due to their limited use for special occasions, they became precious and personal with meaning. By employing the use of new technologies and their materials, my work also explores the ideas of what it means to be made by hand in contrast to mass production and the future of mass customization. »

« I love creating worlds in which a piece to wear can be found…. metal … as a faithfull friend…. allows me to implement wireline architectures and large « self-carried » objects. »

Vincent Pontillo
Vincent Pontillo -  ‘For Saraswati’ – Sterling Silver, 23 Karat Gold Leaf. Forged, Fabricated
« « I will never look like that. » Usually a phrase which is heard, but most commonly said responding to a billboard.
I am attracted to the role this « billboard » plays in my life. Utilizing metalsmithing techniques and traditional jewelry form, I socially and conventionally reinterpret commercialism through adornment. Rendering each piece non-functional, I seek to express a personal commentary of the marketeers’ opportunistic approach to unattainable idealism through ornament. »

Lorena Lazard
Lorena Lazard- ‘Wrap Me Up ‘ -  Crochet Piece Pure Silver, Sterling Silver

David Choi
David Choi – brooch – fabricated steel
« The physicality of steel is cold and rigid. It is fascinating to turn this man-made material into something warm and beautiful. My focus is in this transition from constraint to plasticity. I construct complex forms from multiple elements. My work represents the seamless relationship between order and chaos. To me, perfection is an illusion. The more I deform it, the more it can represent my definition/sense of reality. Jewelry is a large subject in a small object; what animates me is the sentiment of the beautiful. »

Sung-Yeoul Lee
Sung-Yeoul LEE – ‘Connection II’ -  Sterling silver, Cable wire / Fabricated
« My goal is associating the idea of intimacy in jewelry objects to the body while the cord functions as a vehicle which conveys metaphorical meaning of connection. When the piece is on the body, the cord seems to penetrate or bind the wearer. I feel that it expresses the physical and conceptual connection between piece and wearer. It is also very meaningful in promoting the intimacy between wearer and the work itself. »

Along the pathway, you can find some diamonds which imply the treasures during the journey. Hand fabricated, soldered and stone setting. 18k gold, diamonds

Chao-Hsien KuoChao-Hsien Kuo
CHAO-HSIEN KUO (Lahti, Finland) – ‘Lilac’ bouquet ring – silver – All parts move, so ring sits comfortably on hand.
‘Lumipallo’ ring – silver – All parts move

« I have been building a garden of my own for many years. A garden of imagination. I collect the seeds of inspiration by taking close-up photographs of flowers and plants, which I encounter in my daily surroundings or during traveling. I like to observe how a bloom is set on the stem, how the petals unwrap to reveal an enclosed surprise and how leaves sprout from branches, from which I can almost hear the popping sounds. I want to capture the gesture of a flower and to depict the energy and liveliness of a plant. » (CHAO-HSIEN KUO (Finland))

Allyson BoneAllyson Bone
ALLYSON BONE (USA) – Pierced Brooch #2 – hand pierced, fabricated oxidized sterling silver
Pierced Ring #5  - oxidized sterling silver

« The work I create is a balance of my desire to create something that is simple and also complex. I want my designs to appeal to a large audience, but I also want to reward those who are curious and investigate further. To accomplish this I include hidden details. Piercing the surface of the metal, I can create intricate surface patterns which often disguise the silhouettes of whimsical creatures. I have found that the process of hiding the iconic outline of a rabbit or a horse in a complicated pattern is very gratifying for me, like telling a secret. » (ALLYSON BONE (USA))

Tura Sugden
TURA SUGDEN (AU/USA) – ‘black Swallowtail’, 2008 – copper, fine silver, imitation rhodium plated, anticlastic raised – (photo Bob Toy)

« Communication between the fields of art and science plays an important role in the advance of both disciplines. A relationship between the two is inevitable. I question both the fear and the acceptance of insectual images, and I have found that working with entomological images and patterns has inspired dialogue and exposed the beauty that insects can inspire and reflect. » (TURA SUGDEN (USA))

Vina Rust Second Place
VINA RUST (USA) – Equisetum Bracelet – Stained Cell Series – sterling silver, 14K gold, liver of sulfur patina, hand-fabricated

« This body of work is concerned with revelation of the interior, with slicing past the surface. Inspired by botanical illustrations and photomicrographs, it has allowed me to both explore the idea of exposing intricate internal structures with devices such as the cross-section or selective staining of cells, and pay tribute to imagery that has cultivated a sense of wonder in me. My influences vary from Rackham illustrations to « ethnic » jewelry, but tend to share a common thread: acute awareness of natural forms, and of the tension between beauty and menace so often found in nature’s defenses. » (VINA RUST (USA))

Diane Falkenhagen
Diane FALKENHAGEN (USA) – Rococo Landscape -Oxidized Sterling Silver, 23 Kt Gold Leaf, 14 Kt Gold, Mixed Media Image on Sterling Silver

« In my mixed media jewelry I combine two-dimensional pictorial space and three-dimensional jewelry forms. Instead of gemstones, pictures form the central elements of my fabricated brooches, lockets and neckpieces. My diminutive pictorial expressions are either invented or borrowed from historical sources. I use a variety of art materials and techniques to create the images which are chosen for their emotional and intellectual impact as well as their aesthetic value. The jewelry forms that support the images are contemporary yet suggestive of historical styles of ornament. They are primarily fabricated from metal, but often incorporate more eclectic materials. » (DIANE FALKENHAGEN (US))

Sun Kyoung Kim
SUN KYOUNG KIM (US) – ‘Pair ‘ – ring for two people – Sterling silver

« The artist creates jewelry that involves participation of public to produce lively experiences for individual participants. The artist’s interactive jewelry invites two or more people and lets them interact with it. The wearers of her work create a truly impromptu performance while interacting with her work. The artist’s work is refined, elegant, and feminine in aesthetic. She employs curved lines in the design and uses precious metal, sterling silver to accentuate the elegance. The artist’s work is more or less intimate and private in that it does not accommodate a large group of people. » (SUN KYOUNG KIM (US))

Sharon Massey
SHARON MASSEY (USA) – steel bracelet

« I am interested in defining preciousness in my work through sentimentality, intimacy, and emotion. I seek to pay homage to goldsmithing traditions through technique and format, while challenging conventional materials and their value. I borrow historical ornamental motifs and reinterpret them to suggest a feeling of familiarity, as well as the passage of time. The content of my work lies in its use of appropriation and material innovation. In my work, I hope to express the value of sentimentality through ornamentation. » (SHARON MASSEY (USA))

Jillian Moore Award of MeritJillian Moore
JILLIAN A. MOORE (US)- ‘Symbogillis’ – electroformed & fabricated copper, nickel-silver, paint and ink
‘Knobbles’ – electroformed & fabricated copper and brass, paint

« My work combines electroforming and fabrication to achieve incidental organic textures as well as smooth biological forms. The surfaces are then painted. Abrasives remove paint from high points in the organic surface, and areas of interest may be printed on. The resulting objects belie their processes and instead reference living creatures of my own invention. » (JILLIAN A. MOORE (US))

Renee Zettle-Sterling
Renee ZETTLE-STERLING (USA) – Object of Mourning #3 – silver, copper, doily dipped in latex paint, rubber casting, fabrication, mix media

 » Objects of Mourning  2007-Present Through this body of work, I am investigating how objects are a source of meaning beyond their physical properties. I am especially interested in how objects help us move through the difficult passage of mourning. During the process of mourning objects can links us to loved ones that have passed or moments in life that are fleeting, such as childhood. The objects that I am creating become an outlet for displacement, emptiness, loss, and sentimentality. » (Renee ZETTLE-STERLING (USA))

Mary Hallam Pearse
MARY HALLAM PEARSE (USA) – ‘That Little Something’ Brooch – Sterling Silver, Fine Metal Paper, Pearls, Glass 2008 Printed, Fabricated

« In my current body of work I seek to examine how jewelry functions as an image, a means to construct desire, and the consequence of transfer from image to object and back to image. Found images are appropriated from a variety of sources, including magazines and various publications then printed on thin sheet of metal paper resembling the historical tin-types. This game of skill requires that the player complete the image by putting the jewels in to the impressions. These pieces are similar to the games children once received as party favors and to the game bagatelle. » (MARY HALLAM PEARSE (USA))

Mary Hallam Pearse
MARY HALLAM PEARSE- ‘Feeding Desire’ – Brooch  2008 Sterling Silver, Fine Metal Paper, Pearls, Glass Fabricated 

Sunyeoul Lee
SUNG-YEOUL LEE (USA)  – ‘Penetration’ – Poly Rope, Resin, Copper, Tool Dip, Powder Coating (Resin Casting, Rubber Coating, Powder Coating, Forming) 2007

« My goal is associating the idea of intimacy in jewelry objects to the body while the rope functions as a vehicle which conveys metaphorical meaning of connection. When the piece is on the body, it seems to penetrate or bind the wearer. I feel that it expresses the physical and conceptual connection between piece and wearer. It is important to me that the wearer can be able to relate to the symbolic meaning of the rope and at the same time feel themselves tied and connected with the rope or knot while wearing my work. » (SUNG-YEOUL LEE (USA) )

Eun Yeong Jeong

« Natural forms, processes and movement inspire me to create jewellery. When a form emerges from different elements, it tends to follow no exact model in which it crystallizes. Materials like stones or life forms like plants all have a different shape and character which has its origin somewhere in a void not comprehendible for the human mind. We try to understand how and under which circumstances they receive a life but the creation of these forms remains invisible for the human eyes. » (EUN YEONG JEONG (USA))

Artiste Argentine, vivant à Buenos Aires,vous pouvez voir et acheter ses créations sur   http://www.etsy.com/profile.php?user_id=5198877

Le plus « joli » dans ces bijoux c’est qu’ils ont été faits à l’origine pour une jeune mariée qui voulait des bijoux juste pour le jour de son mariage! BRAVO à cette jeune femme dont « l’audace » me rempli d’admiration :-)

« I originally designed this necklace for a bride. She wanted a versatile piece which could be worn not only on her wedding day, but also as a casual piece … » says Cynthia del Giudice

Delightful jewelry !  it’s incredible how plastic grocery bags can be poetic & romantic ! ;-)
