During SCHMUCK 2016 : EXPO ‘SHELF LIFE’ – Vitsoe, Munich (DE) – 20 Fevr.–1er Mars 2016

 SHELF LIFE -

Work by 33 makers, staff and students of Central Saint Martins

Shelf Life shows work by 33 makers, staff and students of Central Saint Martins, BA Jewellery Design course, showing for the first time at Vitsœ in Munich, this is the second project where staff and students display work as equals in a celebration of the diverse and lively approach to contemporary jewellery and objects. Within the breadth of possibilities, the common thread of the course is using materials and objects imaginatively and expressively in response to observations, emotions and situations.

with :   Elena Bonanomi — Caroline Broadhead — Season Cheng — Lin Cheung — Olivia Cosh Hall — Lucie Davies — Naomi FilmerMelanie Georgacopoulos — Rosie Greener — Emily Grimble — Katy Hackney — Lily Harte — Stacey Huang — Jieun Kim — Giles Last — Fan Sze Li — Holly Matthewson — Marlene McKibbin – Maria Militsi Akiko Shinzato — Ella Stern — Esna Su — Yuxi Sun — Florance Tebbutt — Anna Tuhus — Juliette van de Kerchove — Misha Venter — Max Warren — Silvia Weidenbach — Scott Wilson — Jennifer Wong — Scarlett Zhang — Hau-Wen Chien — Juliette van der Kerchove

The concept of Shelf Life is apt for this exhibition, in that it is located within the shelves of the Vitsœ showroom, using the relationship between the shelf space and the works placed on them to reflect on issues of temporality and endurance.
To shelve means to put something aside, to discard, to remove from everyday use. In contrast, we use shelves to display, as a way to draw attention to and highlight things of importance. What do we keep on our shelves? How long do we keep them there? How does the shelf life affect the thing produced? What is life like to live on the shelf? What is life beyond the shelf? Are just some of the questions we can ask.
Some of the work displayed has been made in response to projects, some self-motivated, and some in response to the idea of shelves.

The basis we work to is that jewellery is a microcosm through which to explore and express responses to the world. The course values an open-minded approach, experimentation and risk-taking, along with the more traditional skills. And we encourage jewellery design to be explored, questioned and tested out in a number of guises and contexts, with skill and imagination.
Having the chance to show work from novice and veteran practitioners, from either end of a career path, is a valuable one. It demonstrates a continuity of the subject; how ideas are taken up, reworked, tussled with and how new ideas take hold. Shelf Life gives us the opportunity to celebrate the work of staff and students and which reflects some of our diversity and achievements. / Caroline Broadhead, Course Leader of BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins

We are often amazed and charmed by the many different ways individuals and organisations wish to use Vitsœ’s shelves. But then this versatility is not surprising, as the 606 Universal Shelving System was designed to be discreet and to allow the content to speak.
The vibrancy of thinking and experimentation explored by the staff and students of Central Saint Martins, BA Jewellery Design course is both energising and brave. It feels natural for Vitsœ to support, both in the physical and literal sense, as this body of work challenges our thinking of how we use our shelves./ Jennie Moncur, Creative Director at Vitsœ

EXPO ‘FINDING – Central St Martins BA Jewellery design’ – The Foundling Museum, London (UK) – 14 Nov. 2014 – 30 Janv. 2015

FINDING
CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS BA JEWELLERY DESIGN
a project at THE FOUNDLING MUSEUM
  FINDING CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS BA JEWELLERY DESIGN Finding is a project by eight students and three members of staff of the BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins with the aim of explore the archives and the museum’s collections of the Foundling Hospital. With this starting point each artist developed a piece that represents the opposite feelings that the collection awoke
 
with : Caroline Broadhead, Lin Cheung, Fiona Chong, Gabriella Garnham, Rosie Greener, Haya Luttfullah, Maria Militsi, Wizal Xinyn Wang, Harriet Williams, Pnyuan Yang, Scarlett Zhang
 
The history of the Foundling Hospital is rich and engaging. It is of especial interest to those eager to explore the power of objects to denote an emotional connection. The main aim of this project was to use the collection to initiate creative responses and through this exhibition to contribute to a growing awareness of the Museum’s significance. Eight students and three members of staff of the BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins have explored the archives and the museum’s collections to develop ideas for a piece of jewellery. Another aim of this extra curricula project was to have a chance for students and staff to work together as equals. In addition, the project included two ‘Tokens of Identity’ workshops, conceived by the jewellery students and delivered to schoolchildren from Maria Fidelis School and Haverstock School, which allowed them the opportunity to impart their findings and enthusiasms to younger learners.
There are many narratives about the Foundling Hospital’s history that are compelling, strong themes of abandonment, regimented living, the lack of intimacy and affection, loss of identity and systems of renaming. The central part of the museum’s collection are the tokens that were left as a lasting, but largely undisclosed, connection of a parent to a child and these are eloquent mementos of their separation. These range from buttons, coins, keys, snippets of ribbon and textiles and even bits of jewellery, all of which could have served to unite a parent and a child long after babyhood. With such a wealth of stories it is impossible not to compare present day attitudes and circumstances to these histories and our discussions have included changes in attitude towards children then and now and how different countries take care of their abandoned children.
Jewellers have a strong awareness of the ability of small, closely held objects to convey the value of a relationship, a locket containing a portrait or lock of hair, a piece that has been gifted or handed down are classic examples. Each participant has produced a piece that expresses both the positive and the negative feelings the collection elicits – of abandonment and belonging, uniformity and individuality, the loss of identity and the chance for a new life.

Inspired by the foundling tokens, I focused on the way marks can express loss and act as distinctive identifiers. I embossed scrap pieces of metal, collected from our school’s jewellery workshop, with quotes from the Foundling Voices interviews with former pupils and made each into an individual piece of jewellery.

As technology has developed, I imagined how this might change in the future; a child might receive their DNA markers at birth, represented by a unique sequence of Emojicons, which would then be traceable.

 Puyuan Yang Piece: X, 2014 Found rubber ball Puyuan Yang Piece: X, 2014 Found rubber ball I thought the cross that substituted a signature on one of the registry documents summed up the lack of clear identity of a foundling and marked the estrangement from their past. I found objects in the street and reworked them into crosses, this one from a rubber ball.

These were the start of a new life, which may have been difficult without the emotional strength to manage this. To reference this, the suitcase and its handle are separate on my necklace.

Decouverte : Anes KIM – jade & leather

Classé dans : Anes KIM (KR),Central Saint Martins (UK),COUP DE COEUR,Korea (KR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:11

Anes Kim is an artist and designer with background in Metal Art & Design.
She graduated from the Hong-ik university in Korea, in 2009 with a BA.
Due to her great fascination for art,craft,design and fashion, Anes chose to move to London, a city of mixed culture, for her MA in jewellery design at Central Saint Martins.

Anes Kim

« An Emerging Creature is a project that is interested in invigorating jade through the use of leather in a contemporary way and with a wild combination of materials. although formerly popularly used in Asia, jade no longer appeals to Kim’s younger generation. Responding to the many prejudices of jade- such as reminding Westerners of China and the stereotype of jade as an old-fashioned gemstone for the Asian younger generation-is an absorbing challenge as a designer. The project uses the relationship between the wearer’s skin and leather ‘skin’ to create a unique jade jewellery collection. The shape was started from a fern,as an organic iconographic form used in chinese jade craft during Ming and Quing dynasties, then evolved into an emerging creature in spirals,undulations,curves,volumes,flows,rhythm and dynamism. » Anes Kim

EXPO ‘OUT THE BLUE’ – Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, Bradford (UK) – 15 Nov. 2012 – 27 Janv 2013

OUT THE BLUE
Nine Electric New Talents

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, which in 2012 celebrates sixteen years at Salts Mill, has selected and exhibited the work of new graduates since its inception. In numerous cases these emerging talents have gone on to gain wide acclaim for their work, and many continue to be represented by the gallery.

" Out The Blue" -  NINE ELECTRIC NEW TALENTS -  IN THIS OLYPMIC YEAR WE ARE PROUD TO INTRODUCE NINE RECENT UK GRADUATES THAT WE 'TIP FOR GOLD'.......     This THURSDAY 15TH NOV 6PM - 9PM    15% OFF ALL WORK BOUGHT ON THE NIGHT.    We are delighted that many of the new graduates will be joining us at this opening event and will be happy to talk about their work with you!    FOR A FULL OUT THE BLUE CATALOGUE PLEASE SEE: www.kathlibbertjewellery.co.uk(‘Reflex’ brooch by Joanna Hemsley)

For Out The Blue Kath Libbert has chosen nine new BA and MA graduates from all over the UK:  ‘Spotting and then supporting the work of cutting edge new graduates has always been extremely central to the ethos of the gallery.  Forging a career straight out of college is really challenging. Now, more than ever, it is vital to exhibit and encourage these incredibly talented jewellers at this formative stage in their careers. In this Olympic year we think we can spot a winner….the gold medalists of the future!’

Just like this year’s graduates, renowned goldsmith Jacqueline Mina, who has won the Jerwood prize for Applied Arts and this year received an OBE for services to Art, started out on her jewellery career over 40 years ago after graduating from the Royal College of Art. She is now exhibited and collected worldwide with pieces in the Victoria & Albert Museum and in the Museum of Art and Design in New York. Currently represented by Libbert she says:

‘Galleries such as Kath Libbert Jewellery play a very important role in the career of the new graduate because they educate and encourage their clients and can also advise budding jewellers to go in a certain direction. With her background in psychology, I think that Kath is particularly good at tuning in to new designers who are prepared to take risks in their own careers, people who will stick it out. Knowing this, collectors have confidence in who Kath selects to be in the gallery’s exhibitions. A new graduate exhibition such as Out The Blue allows collectors to spot someone right at the start and then follow them throughout their career.’

The Nine New Graduates that Libbert Tips for Gold are:

Francesca Flynn, Glasgow School of Art, whose sparkling crystalline collection epitomizes the title of the exhibition, Out The Blue, explores the facets of natural and constructed crystals creating vibrant jewellery. Edinburgh College of Art graduate Mariko Sumioka is inspired by the natural materials used in Japanese architecture and creates elegant pieces that interact sculpturally with the human body.

Joanna Hemsley, RCA, London, makes playful, mobile pieces that surprise and delight by revealing hidden elements, while Cristina Zani, Edinburgh College of Art, creates striking, erudite work inspired by her travels in Seoul and the writings of Italo Calvino.

Amy Logan, Sheffield Hallam University, creates pieces which play with concepts of space, containing and encircling it with elegant swirls of finely curved coloured metal. Heather Woof, Edinburgh College of Art, forms windswept looking pieces from the hardest of metals – titanium and steel, not normally used to express movement as they are so very difficult to work with. Very much inspired by the wild Scottish weather she experienced whilst studying in Scotland!

Also an Edinburgh graduate, Nabla Pall’s work is joyfully colourful, each piece like a miniature modernist painting, inspired by circuses, exotic birds and her early exposure to a multitude of cultures. In contrast, from Central St Martins, London, Yannan Song’s work is meditatively simple – elegant neckpieces in fine stainless steel curves and lines mimic the way that strands of hair rest on the body. Finally Marek Svana, De Montfort University, Banbury, constructs superbly engineered geometric copper bangles, darkly oxidized on their exterior, with contrasting flashes of enamel inside in brilliant primary colours.

Wenhui LI

Originally a fine arts student, Wenhui Li studied for three years at the Affiliated Art school of the Guangzhou Institute of Fine Arts in China and then went on to do a further degree in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins College Art & Design graduating this summer. Her professional interest in Chinese traditional line drawing has influenced her and led to the development of her jewellery style. She is deeply attracted by curved lines and forms such as the musical instrument the lute, the architecture designed by Zaha Hadid, and all kinds of organic forms. Li believes that “Curves signify liveliness and activity. They are full of rhythm and diversity and also give people a sense of pleasure.” (Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery)

Wenhui LI describes her process :

« The way I create jewellery for this project is just like a child playing with toys. The process is full of wonder, discovery, combining and unexpectation. I don’t make pieces based on design; I make them based on passion and curiosity. I try to invent processes I cannot control (such as making salts grow on rings), I try to make things happen, I´m spontaneous and attentive, and I follow my instinct most of the time. This process of not knowing and not wanting, just playing, remaining free, being without intention, casual…and suddenly getting excited…and then recognising the point when one has to take control again, is a balancing act. I like accidents to occur during the creation process; sometimes they lead to a happy end result, and sometimes not. However, regardless of what happens, the results always bring inspiration for my creations. I enjoy such uncontrollability, as it is the key element that makes my pieces individual and unique. During the process of creating them, I focus particularly on the texture, colour and details. I want people to also wonder about the materials, feel the texture, pay attention to detail, and most importantly, feel my passion. » (august 2011) (on Sub-Studio design blog)

Olga Noronha is currently finalizing her Major in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins, London, and will be with us in our first Tea Fashion Point

Olga started with beads and pliers, moving forward to sapphires, rubies, diamonds, steal, plastic, rubber, glass, olive branches, etc. “The word jewellery has always been linked to the idea of noble materials such as gold, silver and gemstones. Gemstones are now replaces by crystals, metals by rubbers, plastics, glass and a huge spectrum of materials that achieve an equal or even greater aesthetic value.” – Olga Noronha, 2008.

The harmony of movement and the synchronicity and dependence of all the body parts make the expression of the body the most beautiful human act. The jewel becomes a vital detail and Olga does it best. Her immense creativity and restless search for knowledge make her collections a delight pleasure to our eyes and hands.  “My aim, within the jewellery matter is to relentlessly examine the relationship between bodies, attitudes and surroundings, both in the wearer’s and the audience’s points of view and to create art pieces that celebrate the marriage of sturdy mechanics and delicate anatomies, constantly challenging and exploring the relationship of interactivity, and illustrating the connection between ‘to see’ and ‘to be seen’. My wish is for people not to be apathetic towards my work, whatever the reaction – good or bad, welcoming doubts for they may lead to surprise.” – Olga Noronha, 2011.


Having developed a piece called “Avant-Garde” for Swarovski and exhibited at London Swarovski’s headquarters(2008), with a collection entitled “Dirty Tissues”, featuring since 2009 at the Central Saint Martin’s Museum, Olga is currently developing her final year collection,  that could be described as “Surgical Jewels”. This project is focused on the analysis of physicality and intellectuality, and their manipulation, by exploring the merger of anatomy and medicine with the creation of “objects-jewels” intimately related to the human body. For this, Olga is using actual surgery tools and turning them into jewellery pieces by moving them from a scientific context to an artistic point of view, and creating pieces that can be seen as “new- orthosis”. “May the objects be as if in dialogue with its own ambience, meaning the body where it is placed, social or intellectual phenomena and the ambiguity shown in the relationship between the viewer and the object, allowing the first to see the body as its own garment and also to help overcoming eventual traumas and fears related to surgical gadgets” – Olga Noronha, 2011.

‘Conflict’ (18 juin 2011, Central St Martins) is an exploration of a merger between anatomy, medicine and jewel-like objects. The combined use of actual surgery tools and their replicas are transformed into jewellery pieces without being dissociated from their original function. My intention is to turn the distasteful into the desirable, to switch the response from rejection to attraction.’

CONFLICT : REJECTION / ATTRACTION

THE EXPLORATION OF A MERGER OF ANATOMY AND MEDICINE WITH THE CREATION OF OBJECTS-JEWELS INTIMATELY RELATED TO THE HUMAN BODY; THE COMBINATION OF ACTUAL SURGERY TOOLS AND THEIR REPLICAS TURNED INTO JEWELLERY PIECES, WITHOUT BEING DISSOCIATED FROM THEIR ORIGINAL FUNCTIONS; AND THE CREATION OF PIECES THAT ASSUME A NEW CONCEPT OF ORTHOSIS.
AN INTENTION TO TURN THE OBNOXIOUS INTO DESIRABLE.

« ‘Tomorrow’s Chip Papers’ was the name of Central St Martin’s Sustainable Catwalk jewellery show held on April Fool’s Day 2011. The creativity of the students blossomed under the challenge to create beautiful, earth-friendly body adornments.
Rubbish bags, twigs and discarded kebab sticks, the detritus of our indulgence, don’t exactly shout ‘glamour’ but in the hands of those inventive students at CSM they became striking, highly original jewels for the catwalk. The BA Jewellery Design 2012 graduates had been set the task of creating sustainable jewels and the result was an explosion of originality that twists our perceptions of what jewellery can be made from.
With a tongue in cheek nod the British throwaway culture, the catalogue was printed on ‘chip’ paper and guests were given origami-folded totes made from the daily London papers, more normally to be found swirling around our ankles.
The students’ work was divided into four themes: Nature, Glamour, Fantasy and Dark. Once the music started, guests were treated an extravaganza of fantastic creations to adorn the body made in a variety of un-loved materials.  Old tights and sponges were transformed into a bulging collar as chic as Parisian couture, woven black bin bags morphed into a glossy, oversized hood and drab old cardboard became an avant-garde face and body shield. Forgotten kebab sticks found glory bristling out from an all-white head piece and collar ensemble and a dead bird looked chirpy nestled amongst a tangle of twigs that enshrouded the model.  Enjoy the show, and remember, what you throw away might well become someone else’s treasure » (thanks to The Jewellery Editor‘s page)

Sammie-Jo COXON:
Here are a few photographs of my first couple of pieces for my final year degree show at Central Saint Martins. My work will be showcased at Southampton Row on the 17th of June (press invite only), and open to the public on the 18th till the 23rd of June (12-8pm, and until 6pm on the final day).
Artist statement
« For my final year collection I have drawn inspiration from the Surrealist movement. Inspired by the work of Claude Cahun, Joseph Cornell and Hans Bellmer, I am exploring the manipulation of the body through the use of glass, crystals and precious metals. By constructing bold, simplified and skeletal shapes, I aim to contain the body in an unusual and thought provoking way. I encourage the wearer to approach my pieces with a sense of discovery, playfully inviting them to engage with the structure and the negative space that surrounds it on a new and exciting level. The piece becomes a beautifully made puzzle, as apposed to ‘just another bracelet’. »
