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.

EXPO ‘Sex,Drugs & Rock’n'Roll’ – Werkschau, Kempten (DE) – 28 Sept.-12 Oct. 2012

Sex, Drugs & Rock´n´Roll  Vices or Lifestyle?
internationale Wanderausstellung zeitgenössischen Schmucks

Inaugurazione 28.09.2012 ore 19.00

sex drugs .... - werkschau - 28-09/12-10 2012

The perceptions of Dante Alighieri, who described the seven deadly sins and seven virtues in his Divine Comedy, are the starting point of the competition and exhibition project entitled Sex, Drugs & Rock ’n’ Roll…Vices or Lifestyle?
Dante Alighieri (1265—1321), the great Italian poet of the late Middle Ages, referred to lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride as deadly sins. We wanted to find out what jewelry artists think about vices and lifestyle in our day and age and asked them to illustrate, using their medium, the ideas associated in the past with sin and vice. Since the 1960s, the notion of sin, which was often associated with youth protests and women’s emancipation, has under gone major changes. Today, people in all modern societies are much less prone to regard sexuality in principle as a sin. Even the approach to drugs is much more differentiated, although we know that the use of and dealing with hard drugs are a worldwide problem. And it is also evident that even work, sports, TV and many other things can turn into “drugs” — not to mention alcohol, this socially acceptable drug which, as of late, is again being used excessively, especially by youths. In the light of the crises of the 21st century, the seven deadly sins and seven virtues described by Dante Alighieri have gained a new relevance. However, in addition to the “traditional” seven deadly sins, there are a number of entirely new vices and tres passes that play an important role in everyday life in the year 2012. Destruction of the environment, excessive arms build up in view of permanent hunger crises, or genetic engineering can be regarded as sins of our time and are topics that dominate both the media and the public discourse today.
On the one hand, the Sex, Drugs & Rock ’n’ Roll….. Vices or Lifestyle? competition puts contemporary jewelry in the lime light. All over the world, this highly traditional medium is being used by more or less academically trained designers in a largely liberal artistic fashion. Any material is allowed, and an almost unlimited spectrum of ideas can be expressed in these body related creations. What unites the protagonists of modern jewelry is the idea that their medium is neither supposed to serve merely as a fashionable accessory nor as a means of representation. Artistically designed jewelry is above all a carrier of ideas. On the other hand, the theme of the competition is particularly interesting for jewelry creators because jewelry has been regarded from a moral aspect since the time of the Enlightenment. Expensive jewels — which only the very rich can afford — still evoke envy and resentment, provoke crime and are associated with vice. Especially in this respect, contemporary jewelry is considered a counter-concept. It is intended for imaginative wearers who appreciate inventive creativity and individuality. We would like to thank all the participants for their contributions and our jurors, Barbara Schmidt and Giovanni Corvaja, for their expert selection.

Prix Européen des Arts Appliqués – WCC-BF, Mons (Belgium) – 14 Juill.-9 Sept. 2012

European Prize for Applied ArtsWCC-BF

L’Art appliqué ? Qu’est-ce que c’est ?

Quand la création fait irruption dans le quotidien, quand le bijou se fait manifeste, quand la céramique se fait poème, quand le design change la vie, quand les artistes posent un regard neuf sur tout ce qui fait l’ordinaire de chacun et par l’ « intelligence de la main » créent des pièces uniques, c’est là que sont les Arts appliqués.
Design d’objets et de mobilier, création textile, céramique contemporaine, bijou et orfèvrerie, verre, travail du métal,…  Venez découvrir le meilleur des Arts appliqués européens cet été aux Anciens Abattoirs de Mons.
Créateurs confirmés et jeunes talents, dont les créations seront présentées dans le superbe cadre de la Grande Halle, dialogueront dans une scénographie confiée à Evelyne Gilmont, designer bruxelloise qui enseigne à l’Ecole supérieure des Arts plastiques et visuels de Mons.
Un jury international d’experts décernera le Prix européen des Arts appliqués, ce dernier comptant deux catégories :
le Prix des Maîtres d’Art, doté de 3.500 €, décerné à un créateur  âgé de plus de 35 ans, auteur d’une pièce maîtresse.
le Prix Jeune Talent de 3.000 euros, décerné à un jeune créateur âgé d’au maximum 35 ans.

EXPO ‘Alchemists: New concepts in jewellery’ – New Brewery Arts, Cirencester (UK) – 14 Janv-27 Fevr. 2011

 Alchemists: New concepts in jewellery

Jewellers are not defined by traditional materials and today’s makers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what jewellery can be.
Be it big and bold or pale and subtle, the innovative world of studio jewellery will delight and challenge in equal measure often making us re examine our pre conceptions of what jewellery means.
ALCHEMISTS, the latest jewellery exhibition to be curated at New Brewery Arts, sets out to investigate and present the work of contemporary jewellers who take precious or unexpected materials and transform them into unusual and desirable jewellery.
The notion of using precious and non-precious materials within jewellery is hardly new, but this show seeks to highlight the breadth of approaches and range of materials used by today’s makers when exploring the adornment of the body.
New Brewery Arts is proud to present the work of over 25 artists. Internationally renowned and award winning contemporary jewellers will be exhibiting alongside the fresh talent of new makers just stepping out in their careers.

Zoe Robertson : Flocking Marvellous

New works by Zoe Robertson (UK) (avril 2010)

Zoe Robertson, Neckpiece, 2009

Zoe Robertson – Neckpiece ‘Get Flocked’ 2009 – Acrylic, Powder Coated Steel, Rubber, Flock Fibre

Zoe has a passion for unusual materials and enjoys the exploration of non-precious unconventional materials. The sensory and aesthetic inherent qualities of materials such as rubber and plastic are of particular interest.
The fascination with exploiting the sense of touch has led to the recent discovery of flock fibre as a new material and process to investigate. Immediately seduced and surprised by the diverse range of fibres experimentation led her to examine the relationship between wearable three dimensional forms and flocked surfaces.
Zoe is a full time lecturer at the world renowned School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University, UK ( There is an interesting lecture from Zoe Robertson (about flocking techniques) on the BIAD website and further info/podcasts on the Jewellery dept.). Prior to this she worked within the educational department at the Design Museum in London. Alongside lecturing she is an active designer maker who regularly exhibits her work throughout Europe. Recent exhibitions include Parures, Flockage: the flock phenomenon, and Twelve Glass Cabinets.

EXPO ‘PARADIGMA’ – Escola MASSANA, Barcelona (ES) jusqu’au 16 mars 2010

Exhibition « Paradigma » at Escola Massana in Barcelona.

Teachers from the jewelry departments at BIAD, Birmingham City University, and Escola Massana show their work that ranges from more conceptual projects to jewels of more typical use such as necklaces and pendants. The exhibition makes it evident that diversity of ideas and concepts does not owe as much to any certain culture ; communication and globalization are in control and iron out the similarities and differences.

Participants:
Birmingham : Jack Cunningham, Jivan Astfalck, Jo Pond, Zoe Robertson, Terry Hunt, Anna Lorenz, Karen Bartlett & Bridie Lander.
Barcelona : Ramon Puig Cuyàs, Silvia Walz, Judy McCaig, Carmen Amador, Ursula Viñolas, Carles Codina & Elisabet Puig.
