ZERO KARAT – Jewelry in Non-Precious Materials

BOOK : « Zero Karat » – The Donna Schneier Gift to the American Craft Museum – by Ursula Ilse-Neuman

Zero Karat : Jewelry in Non-Precious Materials

Verena Sieber-Fuchs - Firecracker Necklace
Verena Sieber-Fuchs, Firecracker Necklace (1986), firecrackers, wire thread 

The Tacoma Art Museum (USA) featured an exciting exhibition (in 2005) of alternative jewellery that emerged from the studio art jewellery movement in the late 1960s. The show focuses on the work of artists who pushed the boundaries between jewellery design and the sculpture, assemblages and performance art of the time.

Using nontraditional materials such as paper, foil and rubber tubing, these jewellery designs were political, social and personal artistic statements. For example, Verena Sieber-Fuchs’ Firecracker Necklace, made of wire and actual firecrackers stitched together to form a fuzzy collar, is quietly subversive with the explosive material disguised as texture. Like wearable art, the unusual jewellery objects are given deeper emotional intention by whomever the wearer.

Zero Karat was organized by the Museum of Arts & Design, New York. In conjunction with the « Zero Karat » exhibition at the Tacoma Art Museum, a complementary exhibit, « Beyond the Body » : Northwest Jewelers at Play showcases local talent that demonstrates a similar conceptual basis and use of materials. Works of functional jewellery, as well as, large-scale sculptural pieces are on view. Artists in both exhibitions have given non-precious materials a new aesthetic status, one endowed with subtle metaphors and executed with remarkable craftsmanship.

« Pour Susanne Klemm, la nature reste une intarissable source d’inspiration. Aussi l’artiste se propose-t-elle d’intervenir dans le rythme sans fin de la croissance et du déclin pour ajouter une touche d’immortalité à certains événements.
Véritable démiurge, elle saisit ces moments en utilisant un bain de plastique pour enrober finement divers objets tels que des fruits, des brindilles ou des fleurs. Dès lors, elle les fige dans le temps, tout en permettant paradoxalement à la nature d’accéder à son plein épanouissement.
Susanne Klemm prête une forme visible à l’évanescence …
Où se termine la nature, où l’art commence-t-il?
Ou bien conviendrait-il d’inverser la formule?

EXPO ‘Da Materia a Gioiello’ – 70m2 , Livorno (IT) – 19 Fevr-13 mars 2010

EXPO - da materia a gioiello

« Materiali che si arrendono a forme impensabili, rendono vita o la cambiano, che si trasformano, si inventano un nuovo uso, che scherzano con il lusso e ammiccano al prezioso : tutto questo è possibile
grazie alla fantasia e al sapiente lavoro dei 15 artisti presenti con le loro creazioni. In questo percorso ci lasceremo sorprendere da carta, legno, ceramica, silicone, ritagli di pvc, molle che diventano collane, anelli, pendenti, bracciali, ma saremo anche affascinati da oro, argento, vetro, che flirtano con ebano, pietre, resina per unirsi e dar vita ad accessori originali, giocosi e raffinati al tempo stesso. Filo conduttore della mostra – oltre al tema: “da materia a gioiello” – è la sperimentazione e la ricerca che gli artisti hanno seguito per le creazioni esposte, reinterpretando materiali e antiche lavorazioni. Lo studio di volumi, la varietà di forme, le sovrapposizioni di colori, le superfici, le trasparenze, le incrinature della materia, i riflessi, gli intrecci stupiscono e incantano in tutte queste realizzazioni, vere e proprie piccole opere d’arte da indossare.

EXPO/MOSTRA ‘Natura e Artificio’ -Museo di Storia Naturale del Mediterraneo, Livorno (IT) – 27 avril- 3 mai 2010

L’idea di questa mostra nasce dall’ interesse che gli artisti orafi hanno mostrato già nel passato, per il mondo della natura, in particolare per quello floreale; questo interesse ha segnato la nascita a cavallo di due secoli, di uno stile forte e deciso che in Europa è stato comunemente conosciuto come  “Art Nouveau”. E’ a quello spirito di innovazione e discussione che ci ispiriamo, non a caso nato poco dopo la rivoluzione industriale ed in contemporanea ai nuovi materiali, alle nuove tecnologie… ai nuovi pensieri.

livorno EXPO

Chiediamo quindi agli artefici (che vorranno contribuire con la loro partecipazione al nostro progetto) di confrontarsi con il tema della natura, interrogandosi sul naturale (o innaturale) significato di artificio. Sarà poi interessante vedere quale è oggi, nel gioiello contemporaneo, il nuovo punto di vista : quali le forme dell’artificio più consone a rappresentare la natura, quale il punto di contatto (o rottura) tra il naturale e l’ artificiale.
Il locale espositivo è prestigioso e si presta molto bene per una manifestazione del genere, è un’ampia struttura in acciaio e vetro molto moderna e super attrezzata dotata di vetrine illuminate (di varie misure), posta in un bellissimo giardino.
Nell’ organizzazione dell’evento, che ha il patrocinio e il sostegno della Provincia di Livorno, siamo stati coadiuvati dal Garden Club di Livorno che parteciperà presentando, per l’ inaugurazione, composizioni floreali di impostazione contemporanea.
I partecipanti potranno inviare un massimo di tre opere (di cui almeno una obbligatoriamente sul mondo dei fiori o delle piante, mentre le altre due potranno avere come soggetto la natura in senso lato) . Ogni autore presenterà un breve testo critico (verrà esposto nelle vetrine e stampato nel catalogo insieme alla foto dell’opera) che possa aiutare a mettere in evidenza la relazione esistente per l’autore tra natura e artificio. Ci auguriamo che ciò serva a chi parteciperà per crescere nel confronto, e ai visitatori per abituarsi ad osservare le opere esposte con un occhio più contemporaneo, più consapevole dei cambiamenti e delle spinte che oggi indirizzano la ricerca in tutti i campi.
A tale proposito il pubblico voterà le tre opere più meritevoli, parallelamente ad una giuria di addetti ai lavori. Le opere selezionate verranno segnalate in catalogo, e sarà interessante interrogarsi poi sulle eventuali discordanze di giudizio. Firmatari del progetto: Corrado De Meo, Federico Vianello, Walter Romani, Carlotta Gambineri, Stefano Pedonesi, Fabio Corsini

Corrado De Meo, “Peonia Aurea”  -
first price public selection

« The exhibition “Natura e Artificio” organized by the Tuscan section of AGC (Contemporary Jewelry Association, Italy) and the Garden Club Livorno opened on Tuesday 27th of April in the delicious location of Villa Henderson in Livorno.
It is the first exhibition of contemporary jewelry in Livorno and the affluence was amazing.
The idea of this exhibition comes from the interest that goldsmiths always showed for the natural world, especially for flowers, and we wanted to show to the public contemporary interpretations. We asked the authors to confront themselves with the theme of nature, questioning the natural or unnatural meaning of artifice.

The exhibition had no selection, all authors who wanted to join the project could do it. The reason for this as Corrado Demeo – Pluto, chairman of the Tuscan AGC explains, is that we do not intend to create events and exhibitions for experts, rather we want to present open spaces where it is possible to bring the audience in contact with a variety of expressions, in order to grow a sensibility for contemporary confrontation.
The quality revealed by this exhibition is simply determined by the energies devoted to the organization and the self-responsability of the participants.

Three works were selected by a jury, that did not have to agree but each juror chose the piece he considered most valuable according to the theme of the event and his own criteria. Also the public of the Vernissage was asked to choose their preferred piece and the visitors took this task extremely seriously by taking notes and examining all the pieces on exhibit with great attention.
The only false note was the bad weather, but at the end also this brought people to closer relations being forced to cramp under the few roofs in the wonderful garden.

EXPO ‘Exploring Colour’ by Lina Peterson – online exhibitions at the Crafts Council (UK) 18 dec 2009 – 18 jun 2010

Exploring Colour by Lina Peterson : PINK !!

The first thing that strikes you about Lina Peterson’s work is her bold use of colour, from tangy primaries through to fresh fluorescents. The bright and brilliant ‘Dipped’ plastic collection of brooches, part of Peterson’s graduation showcase at the RCA in 2006, was a huge success and yet the colours emerged more by accident than design.

At this point, Peterson was more interested in ‘material qualities and combinations’ than anything else, but as she begins to use colour in a ‘more deliberate way,’ starting with a range of brooches produced for Collect in May 2009, the invitation to explore the theme seems particularly apt. ‘My colour choices have always been pretty arbitrary up until now,’ explains Peterson. ‘They’ve been quite intuitive as I really just went with what I felt worked, but I thought it would be interesting to look at colour in more detail.’

The exploration begins with a closer look at Peterson’s pieces in the Crafts Council Collection: Orange Necklace, 2008, and three Dipped Brooches, acquired in 2009. It ends with two entirely new pieces based on research into the colour pink, which she hopes will lead to a whole new body of work.

from Lina’ s blog:
« I decided to work with the colour pink for two reasons, partly because it’s a colour that has popped up in my work recently and secondly because of its interesting history. Whilst reading up on symbolism related to pink I discovered that its associations are much more varied than expected. Interesting facts about pink include cultural associations – it was originally a colour associated with boys and not until the 1940s that it became a ‘girly’ colour. Also of interest are the psychological effects certain shades of pink can have as well as the colour’s political associations. I read an interesting piece of writing about the symbolism of pink here: Cabinet Magazine
The thing I became most interested in investigating was the idea of a monochromatic piece of jewellery made out of many different materials. I saw two ways of achieving this. Firstly I wanted to paint different materials with the same colour of paint. The individual pieces would look different because of their material properties. Secondly by bringing materials together that were ‘naturally’ pink, I could create an intrinsically pink piece of jewellery.

EXPO ‘Pavel Opocenský : Colocircol’ – Galerie Reverso, Lisbonne (PT) – 13 Mars-9 avril 2010

«  Pavel  Opocenský is not only a highly esteemed jewellery artist and a well known sculptor, but also a great carver – rather a rarity in jewellery. This approach requires the artist to investigate the material, to imagine the invisible and make it perceivable, and last but not least, it demands enormous craftsmanship. In doing so, Pavel pushes to the limits, makes light penetrate hardness, a spectacle that does not just try to impress. His brooches convey unexpected depth; also the play of shadows adds new dimensions to the pieces. The forms remain reduced, with limited colouring, according to the conditions of the material. The beholder finds nothing additional, no decoration in his work. On the contrary, reduction is taking place; he carves out, bores out, files off. Through the artistic treatment, a perfect dialogue between form and material turns out.  » (Olga Zobel Biró MA Galerie Biró, München)

« Message in a jewel ….. » (chanson bien connue) – « Dear JAMES », Munich (DE) 3-7 mars 2010

DEAR JAMES - The James exchange

 » « Dear JAMES » is based around the idea of six artists sending one another a series of letters over a six month period. The contents of the letter in unprescribed, the only stipulations being that that the letter is written intuitively on a given date and posted immediately to a given address. Each artist will use the letters they have received to stimulate the creation of a collection of pieces taking what they will from their fellow artists thoughts and observations. This will result in an exhibition of contemporary Jewellery and Metal work that has been inspired by written words. The complete set of 30 letters will form a snapshot of each of our individual thoughts over a six month period from across the world, only coming together at the first showing of Dear JAMES to form the complete picture alongside the work it has inspired. » (Klimt02 information)

EXPO ‘BI-CYCLE’ – Nikolay Sardamov – Galerie V&V, Vienne (AT) – 1 Mars-30 Avril 2010

Bi-Re-Cycle/jewellery by  Nikolay Sardamov (Sofia, Bulgarie)

« This body of work goes back to mobility in today’s world. In this line of thoughts the choice of material is logical : bicycle tyre. Pieces of the black tyre are slipped over a skeleton-like silver construction and create unisex neckpieces with a futuristic air. Recycling is the second component of the works. It plays an important role in the future intelligent society as well as in jewellery design. And last but not least there is the basic shape of the circle that has always represented important imagery in jewellery. »

Nikolay Sardamov – Bi-Re-Cycle – jewellery  -bicycle tire

The “Bi-Re-Cycle” formula:
1. Bicycle
Main importance idea in the collection is the mobility of today’s life. Direct connection is to find in the material of the jewellery: bicycle tyres. The futuristic uni-sex pieces are constructed with silver « skeletons »and « over-dressed » with black rubber.
2. Recycle
The future of « smart »society : recycling is the second stop in the collection. You can easily find it in the materials, used by the jewellery.
3. Cycle
A round or circle form, the symbol of the cycle is used in the jewellery as a main construct.Nikolay Sardamov- Blackened silver, rubber necklaceNikolay Sardamov- Blackened silver, rubber necklaceNikolay Sardamov- Blackened silver, rubber necklace4Nikolay Sardamov- Blackened silver, rubber necklace
