Un petit CAILLOU, deux petits CAILLOUX, moult moult CAILLOUX ……

….. bref, HISTOIRE de CAILLOUX !

Et NON, ce n’est pas du Petit Poucet dont je veux vous parler !

Mais de Katharina Dettar (MA 2016 at RCA, London, UK) qui vient de recevoir, avec quelques autres, le MARZEE GRADUATE PRIZE  2016

Et de son Installation « 2,1 grams »« Awakening Awareness« 

Katharina Dettar explains : « 2,1 grams- Gold has been man’s most sought-after quest for hundreds of years & the price of gold continues to rise. But gold deposits are ever thinner, & this precious metal is being extracted from the earth at enormous environmental & human cost, often in some of the poorest corners of the world. This gold ring weighs 2,1 grams.
Based on the data & information provided by the Dolaucothi Gold Mines in Wales the average quantity of ore to get 2,1 grams of 24ct gold is of a is of about 140 kg of quartzite. This quartzite has an high amount of iron in it where the gold dust finds itself located. In order to get the ore you need to extract 1400 kg of shale rock, therefore being the final numbers 1540 kg of spoil for a 2,1 grams ring of gold.
To obtain a small amount of gold tons of rock are dug up & sprinkled with diluted cyanide, which separates the gold from the rock. Some of the largest mines move up to half million tons of earth a day, leaching the poison into rivers & lakes.
2,1 grams is a visual metaphor that illustrates the huge disparity between a gold ring & the amount of material needed to create it.

Merci à elle d’avoir pris le temps d’éclairer ma lanterne !

Decouverte / COUP de COEUR : Mirka Janeckova – WHITE is WHITE

Mirka Janeckova

« I see my jewellery as a container for wearer’s emotions, memories and hopes. For creating my recent work I was inspired by surrealism and indigenous cultures.
My pieces refer to the body in an abstract way, exploring the relationship between people and their subconscious mind.
I am concentrating on using only ‘white’ materials as porcelain, silver, aluminium and textile to create playful, poetic pieces. White light contains all the others colour of the spectrum so for me it is a symbol of the unity.
I am experimenting with hybrid metal-porcelain jewellery and developing an innovative ways of applying traditional metalsmith techniques onto porcelain such as casting porcelain in place and cloisonné enamel on porcelain » (to shop at Neuner schmuck)

« La White Collection si mostra in apparenza fragile, con le sue linee evanescenti, ma in realtà -come spiega Mirka, i suoi gioielli sono tutt’altro che delicati, perché la porcellana è un materiale molto resistente che sulla scala della durezza corrisponde a 7, maggiore delle pietre dure (come i quarzi), una caratteristica che assume dopo una cottura in forno a 1200-1400 gradi. La tecnica di “cottura bianca” utilizzata dalla designer permette poi di mantenere inalterata la brillantezza dell’argento di contro al bianco opaco della porcellana, presentando così il gioiello come oggetti dal valore anche tattile, oltre che bello ed originale da indossare. » (PreziosaMagazine)

COUP de COEUR … Carrie Dickens

Carrie Dickens

Discovered thanks to MARZEE graduation show 2015 where her jewels are presented ….

And on her page on RCA (Royal College of Art) work 2015, it begins PERFECTLY for me : « It all begins with touch. »
and on her website, the same : « jewellery that touches back »

« I believe the physical ‘touch’ of jewellery has powerful potential to change the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us. My work investigates tactile potential, especially for soothing comfort: I aim for sense-full surfaces, nuzzling and strokeable textures, enveloping experience. I aim for jewellery that touches back. »

OOOOH YES !!! sooo important notion for me !

« This exploration follows directly from the research I undertook for my MA dissertation and my experimental installation which invited people to ‘wear’ pebbles suspended from the ceiling.  With this series I’m aiming for a nurturing, nestling, comforting nuzzle. »
