 Twelve New Graduates
Delectable jewellery, metalwork and silversmithing! Our annual pick of the most delicious new talents selected from all across the UK and Ireland!

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, which this year celebrates twenty years at Salts Mill, Saltaire, 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. For the exhibition New Tastes Kath serves up twelve sumptuous collections cooked up by new graduates from all over the UK and Ireland:  ‘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 and metalsmiths at this formative stage in their careers.’

Wanshu Li, Edinburgh College of Art‘Go with the Glow’ is a taste explosion – sensual, soft to the touch jewels, in a riot of fluorescent UV reactive nylon wire, inspired by raves, laser light shows, and jellyfish!
« My jewellery is focused on exploring the multisensory experience and making tactile wearable pieces, which involve different sensory experiences such as vision, sound, and touch. The inspiration for the jewellery series “Go with the Glow” stems from capturing the moving moments in the natural world. I was deeply attracted by free-swimming marine animal. For example jellyfish, which is soft, light, and glowing with the characteristics of amazing colours. I was also fascinated by dancing, rave party and laser light show.
I developed my work by experimenting with acrylic, moving beads, UV reactive nylon wire, UV light and fluorescent paints resulting in light-weighted tactile, colourful and playful pieces. The nylon wires under UV light creates an amazing fluorescent effect and provide a pleasant visual enjoyment for the wearers and viewers. Moreover, the pieces create subtle sounds, following freely with the movements of the body. »

Amanda Denison, Winchester School of Art
« I am inspired and intrigued by the traces left behind through dilapidation and decay and by the marks stamped on the urban environment.  And I am drawn to repeated elements that distort and change. 
I have a fine art background and this influences my approach to jewellery making. I live and work in West London and take numerous photographs of the details I discover as I walk the streets. These are incorporated into my work through mark making and drawings on my enameled surfaces.
I enjoy the challenge of working with industrial materials and traditional processes to create distinctive hand made art Jewellery. I like to work with steel and to add silver accents. I incorporate enamels and patinas to add colour but my palette is subtle and restrained. After kiln firing my enamels are deconstructed and the shiny finish is abraded. This creates richly degraded surfaces with subtle areas of hue and tone and a smooth matt finish. Where patches of bare steel are revealed they are encouraged to rust.  Each piece is unique for although I can repeat the processes there is always an element of chance and no two pieces are ever exactly the same. »

Michaela Murrain, De Montfort University, Leicester
« My work is all about colour, shape and repetition. The idea of taking plain white, flat pieces of fabric and manipulating them to create wearable sculpture is what excites me as a maker. I am inspired by the bold characteristics of neck adornment within African culture and from this I created my ‘Chunk and Loop’ jewellery collection where I have translated subtle elements, such as the placement of colour and scale, to create tactile, vibrant yet sophisticated, contemporary wearables. »

Stephanie O Leary, Middlesex University, London
« Drawn to the simplicity and elegance of clean lines in architectural design, Stephanie O’Leary is influenced by geometric structures which jut-out, protrude or extend from the existing ‘frame’ of their environment. Specifically scaffolding, cranes and power lines.
Scaffolding: “a temporary structure used to support the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings”.
What some may perceive as a temporary ugliness protruding out of the natural urban environment; she is drawn to its linear design, the contrast between permanence and degradation, and the transient nature of its construction.
Formed from various different components, scaffolding can be assembled in various different ways to integrate with and support a building; the structure can be assembled, disassembled, relocated and assembled again. In this sense, over time, the structure is in a constant state of flux, moving around the city.
By focussing on this dynamic, O’Leary uses universal hinges and industrial materials to create kinetic urban structures, which mimic the minimalist and fragmented aesthetic of London.
In combination with found objects, industrial and precious materials, O’Leary forms connections and links between discarded objects, material connotations and their environment in relation to urban cityscapes. »

Chen Cheng, Birmingham School of Jewellery – inspired by ballet, Chen’s delightfully playful series of rings and brooches seem alive, dancing on the body – every element of her finely manipulated metal wire mini sculptures move as the wearer moves.
« Chen Cheng believes that contemporary jewellery is interactive because it demands a response, which can either be physical or emotional. Through kinetic movement and visual interaction, her work is designed to be explored.
“My pieces invoke play. Every element is movable, and this quality enhances the physical movement of the wearer”.
Combining her own aesthetic and working style, Chen has taken inspiration from shapes and moving modes found in the human body, which are also expressed through modern and traditional ballet dancing. Applying this motion to express the mystique and magical forms of the human body was the key determining process in her jewellery design.
Using fine wire and simple metal shapes to create the minimal forms allows the audiences to pay close attention to the movement of the work. Akin to dancing, each piece’s “performance” holds its own surprise in style and character.
Chen hopes that her work will encourage the wearers to touch, feel and discover the meaning behind her work. She hopes that through a deeper appreciation of such interaction, jewellery can be better understood and more people would be able to appreciate the different expressions and styles of contemporary jewellery. »

Francesca Lobb, Manchester School of Art
« Through the exploration of body adornment and personal possessions my practice primarily focusses around how an object evokes personal comfort for its owner. Through interrogation of pre-owned objects and our interaction with our personal belongings, my works emphasis is on the user’s experience. By observing these interactions I question how the design of an object can entice an individual to explore the piece and how this can provoke the wearer to form a personal attachment to the item.
Producing small scale objects with close attention to detail, I question how the user will interact with each piece. Creating intricate designs that evoke engagement, generates an individual narrative upon each item through the user’s choice of how it is worn.
Exploration of traditional techniques within jewellery and metal work is integral within my practice to produce individual handmade items, which also allows myself as a maker to form a personal connection to each piece throughout its creation. »

Darcey Skelly, National College of Art and Design, Dublin‘Voyages of the Starship Stetson’ – a collision of two iconic fictional genres, Sci-Fi and the Western, paired in a crazy creation of her own imagining. Her concept, if the Cowboys of the Old West found a way to propel themselves into Space to colonise a planet. Darcey describes herself as ‘an illustrative maker’, a storyteller who aims to show there is more to a piece than meets the eye!

Sheng Zhang, Birmingham School of Jewellery – winner of the New Designers Goldsmiths’ Company Silversmithing Award 2016  is influenced by minimalist art and contemporary architecture. Shafts of light slice through finely crafted incisions in his series of supremely elegant geometric brooches and vessels – all darkly oxidised with glinting gold edges.
« Sheng Zhang is influenced by minimalist art and inspired by contemporary architecture. His passion concentrates on the exploration and expression of the relationship between internal and external spaces with significant contrasting elements such as forms, textures and colours.
The collection involves the utilisation of highlighted incisions and openings to imply and emphasise the link of internal and external space, as well as introducing light as an indicator of different spaces to allow the viewer to look through and explore the entire piece. This also strengthens the visual response, captures attention and produces curiosity for the viewer.
By employing simple geometric forms and contrasting colours, Sheng demonstrates a minimal style and visual language, which reflects his personality, philosophy and personal aesthetic.
Each piece is unique as a result of a carefully controlled and purposely structured making process. All the pieces are hand made in metal with appropriate techniques including plating and oxidising. The collection consists of functional and non-functional items. »

Freya Alder, Glasgow School of Art
« I am a designer, maker and jeweller based in Glasgow. My work tends to be informal, relatively un-precious and playful. I recently graduated from the design school at Glasgow School of art specialising in silversmithing and jewellery.
This work originally sprang from my love of illustrating the female form. I enjoy the long linear lines that so quickly represent a woman. With something like five strokes of a pen one can conjure a form, and a character within that form.
The subject of the nude woman is fraught with conflicts. The female form is often reductively objectified and generally devalued. I want my work to have a humour and an informality that isn’t often afforded to the subject of the naked women or indeed the discipline of jewellery »

Hayley Brooks, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee - the peaceful expansive landscapes of the Scottish wilds are captured in her sensitive collection of chokers and bangles – microscopic details of lichen covered rocks appear in richly textured soft silicone contrasting with sleek silver – ‘a personal souvenir – enabling the wearer to carry with them something of the peace and solace found in the Scottish landscape.’
« The Scottish landscape provides peacefulness, an opportunity to free your mind, and access to silence. A stark contrast to the every day hustle and bustle of city life. Through photography I capture things that interest me ranging from the textures and details in the rocks found at my feet to the wider expansive landscapes that give us a sense of place. I am interested in the natural reflection of the landscape in the details of the rocks – the macroscopic in the microscopic!
Through this innovative collection of contemporary jewellery I aim to raise awareness of the beauty of the Scottish landscape, as I want other people see what I can see in the rocks and stones. These immensely wearable pieces, combine alternative materials such as silicone and precious metal, and also act as a personal souvenir – enabling the wearer to carry something of the peace and solace found in the Scottish landscape. »

EXPO ‘Nomen Nescio’ – Piazza del carmine 29, Firenze (IT) – 2-3 Dec. 2016

Nomen Nescio

MFA GRADUATION SHOW - by  Carla Movia

Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School Florence

Opening 2 december 18:00-21:00

& 3 December 17:00-20:00

Nomen Nescio – Carla Movia

Nomen Nescio, from latin nomen-name and nescio-I don’t know, is an installation of 300 brooches, all made out of the same material – discarded tin cans.
It is the nameless and forgotten crowd that the jewellery artist Carla Movia addresses with her work, a reflection on stereotypes and prejudice.
100 trashed tin cans transformed into jewellery state that redemption is a possibility.
They are meant as a symbol of hope, the invisible and the rejected placed on the body and worn with pride to be noticed.
In this spirit, one series of brooches supports Oxfam Italia’s campaign Stand as One.
A percentage of the sales will be donated to give help and protection to the millions of people forced to flee conflict, disaster and poverty.

EXPO ‘WYSIWYG – Chumeng Weng’ – Spazio Culturale MENTANA, Firenze (IT) – 26 Nov. 2016

WYSIWYG – Chumeng Weng

MFA GRADUATION SHOW

Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School Florence

26 November 2016 -  Opening: 18:00

 

WYSIWYG - Chumeng Weng

Alchimia presents WYSIWYG, solo exhibition of graduate student Chumeng Weng.
The exhibition consists of a series of 19 jewellery pieces, a humorous reflection on what determines our psychological discomforts. On Nov 26th 2016, you are invited to the representation of her fears based on a two-year self discovery journey.
WYSIWYG will take you behind the dark scenes of Chumeng Weng’s imagination, where everything is tied together through one specific shape to have her worst nightmares come true.
Weng’s work incorporates traditional metal forming techniques with elements that are not usually associated with jewellery, thus creating a sense of disturbance, much like how our inner struggle works against common perception. As she sharpens, scores, snaps the pieces on to the edge of a shirt with an aggressive gesture, they turn into a theatrical symbol rather than a physical threat. Weng becomes powerful through the process of creation, taking control of her growth once again.

« Chumeng Weng in her new collection moved from a more personal and biographical representation of fear to a broader and rather humoristic reflection on what determines our psychological discomforts.  Motion and sarcasm are paramount tools for her, and the question she seems to pose here might be how to neutralize fear’s paralyzing power. » (Alchimia blog)

Chumeng Weng 2016Chumeng Weng

 

Chumeng Weng lived and studied in Shenyang, China for 18 years before studying fine art in Canada. Still looking for a better self, she spent one year focusing on technical jewellery making. This led her to Alchimia, where not only her perception of jewellery has been altered greatly, but also her philosophy towards ways of living has been reinterpreted.

Lilian Mattuschka‎ Weapons of Perfection

« The unconscious is sitting on my shoulders, whispering, calling for revolution. The giant grandpa wants to teach me how to move, how to smile, how to behave. I shave my hair.

Weapons of Perfection is the result of a two-year research revolving around issues on social behavior and norms that define and direct human interactions.
This body of work is presented as an installation created to encourage a dialogue between body and objects, photography and video. The work is divided in chapters, each representing a specific type of instruction, intended to shape both our posture and our mind.
Weapons of Perfection explores the alphabet of forms we live every day. Here the apple is a weapon of knowledge; the pacifier is an artifice of compensation; the smile is a trick of expression; the handle is a temptation of contact; the posture is an imposition of openness; the chain is a distorted bond.
The thoroughly refined artifacts invite touch, but resist use when perceived as weapons.
Weapons of Perfection offers an insight into the invisible social constrictions and boundaries with which we can be confronted. »

EXPO ‘INVISIBLE’ – It’s yoga Firenze, Firenze (IT) – 11 Nov. 2016

Classé dans : ALCHIMIA (IT),Exposition/Exhibition,Graduation Show,Italie (IT) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:47

MFA GRADUATION SHOW
Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School Florence

11 November 2016
Opening: 17:00 – 21:00 at  « It’s yoga Firenze » (Light Lite)
Just as a reminder : The Treasure Hunt/Route will end at 7:30pm given that the shops close at that time. After that, we will meet at the gathering place It’ Yoga (Lightlite) until 9pm !! I hope to see you all at 5:00pm!

INVISIBLE

« INVISIBLE is a series of 213 jewelry pieces created to populate surfaces on the body and beyond.
INVISIBLE is jewelry meant to draw attention, to stop a distracted glance, and be an encounter with the unsuspected.
INVISIBLE talks about a process and a transformation from the ordinary to the extraordinary. It talks about the metamorphosis of organic substances, and focuses on the microorganisms that provoke this metamorphosis by transforming them into jewelry.
Creating “mold” to be worn as jewelry might be felt as a provocation, a provocation to feel and to see what is normally disdained. It is an invitation to accept a natural process of life in its inherent beauty, an invitation to break the boundaries of traditional jewelry, while exploring new possibilities of wearability and reinterpretation.
The exhibition itself is again an invitation to stroll around and explore particular spaces.
It has its starting and ending point in “It’s Yoga” (Light Lite), Via dei Serragli, 24r, 50124 at 5p.m with an installation explaining the project. The exhibition itself evolves as treasure hunt where the visitors will follow a map with a route to find jewelry pieces spread in the area of the city.
This was possible thanks to the collaboration of I Visionari, Coexist, Quelle tre, Wave Parrucchieri, Luca and Bjork. »

EXPO ‘DARK MATTER’ – Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery (UK) – 12 Nov. 2015–28 Janv. 2016

DARK MATTER


A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY WITH ELEVEN NEW GRADUATES
12th Nov – 28th Jan 2016

Dark Matter - Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery

We invite you to join us on an atmospheric journey to the far flung future frontiers of contemporary jewellery and metalsmithing….Be captivated by a cosmos where curious enamelled critters scuttle, inky black geodes split to reveal shimmering interiors and space ship shaped brooches lift off…
Based at Salts Mill since 1996, Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery is renowned for its annual exhibition of the most promising new graduate talents carefully chosen from across the UK and Ireland’s universities. In past years many of the graduates she has selected have gone on to gain national and international acclaim, becoming recognised, collectable art jewellers. 
Curator Kath Libbert who selected the eleven artists says ‘I always look for individuality and a fresh approach and the work of this year’s graduates is sure to surprise and stimulate! I’m delighted to provide a launch pad for these young artists who I believe have what it takes to develop successful careers.’

This year’s selection destined for meteoric success is:

Maliha Khan, Glasgow School of Art, explores the concept of visual escapism crafting mysterious blackened balsa wood brooches and pendants breaking open to reveal bursts of colour.

Maliha Khan - Glasgow School of Art Degree Show at New Designers 2015.  ©: Maliha Khan – ‘Hinged Azurite’ brooch in oxidized white metal, balsa wood, ink and oil paint

Rosie Clayden, University of Brighton, is fascinated by the intricacies of jewellery. Her exquisitely crafted series of modern day ‘Poison Rings’ with tiny hinges and hidden openings, some also containing an Antidote in case of a change of heart, are darkly, dangerously intriguing.

Genevieve Howard, National College of Art and Design, Dublin, a musician and a jeweller, has devised a way to translate her favourite music into tactile, three dimensional wearable neckpieces and bracelets. A graphic notation from scores of music is laser cut from Japanese paper and carefully assembled to mirror the sequence of each score.

Elisavet Messi, University for the Creative Arts, Rochester, starts with a single strand of wire and using her own specially invented tools and processes she distorts and compresses over thirty feet of silver or gold wire into each of her geometrically structured rings.

Elisavet Messi jewellery - The uncanny  collection: Elisavet Messi jewellery – The uncanny  collection « …creating sharp geometrical structures out of meters & meters of compressed wire. A method that demanded the development of my own tools »

Megan Falconer, Duncan of JordanstoneCollege of Art and Design, Dundee, investigates and interprets the natural decay and erosion of the landscape. Using rocks from areas of natural erosion, she crafts her own hammer heads which are in turn used to raise, planish and texture silver vessels, thus creating a unique connection between the found object, the tool it makes and each of her vessels.

Melissa Morgan, Hereford College of Art, makes wearable ‘sci-fi’ sculptures influenced by the aesthetics of the 70s and 80s. Working in metal and vitreous enamel, her etched brooches reflect spontaneity in design, coupled with a detailed figurative narrative.

Melissa Morgan -  '5 Tones' brooch in gilding metal and nickel: Melissa Morgan -  ’5 Tones’ brooch in gilding metal and nickel

Mark Newman, NationalCollege of Art and Design, Dublinhas created a series of dark and brooding brooches, ‘Harbouring Memory’, inspired by memory loss and the yearning to connect with the past. He uses the visual metaphors of distorted net patterns and weathered enamel to reference the fading and loss of memory.

 Mark Newman - ‘Harbouring Memory’ large square blue brooch in copper, vitreous enamel and steel: Mark Newman – ‘Harbouring Memory’ large square blue brooch in copper, vitreous enamel and steel

Ieva Mikutaite, Glasgow School of Art, loves exploring kinetics and incorporating elements of movement, transformation, repetition and multiplication into her playful and engaging jewellery collection. She aims to transport the wearer back to their childhood: a time when things seem strange and curious, a time when almost everything is a game.

Ieva Mikutaite Brooch: Expanding, 2015 Gold plated silver three views: Ieva Mikutaite,   Expanding bracelet, 2015 Gold plated silver – three views - Her most recent work is inspired by dandelion seeds

Jocelyn He, School of Jewellery, Birmingham is inspired by nature and plants and creates otherworldly three dimensional seed pod brooches. Fine filaments of steel encase hand water coloured paper petals in delicate pastel shades to create her exquisite feminine collection of jewellery.

JOCELYN HE   ‘Blooming’ brooches in hand painted paper and steel: Jocelyn HE   ‘Blooming’ brooches in hand painted paper and steel

Joanna Witcher, MiddlesexUniversity, London. Her collection ‘Urban Degeneration’ features aspects of growth or decay and sometimes the correlation between the two. Her dramatic deeply etched blackened brass and rubber neckpieces and bangles make a bold urban punk statement!

JOANNA WITCHER ‘Urban Degeneration’ neckpiece in etched brass and rubber: Joanna WITCHER ‘Urban Degeneration’ neckpiece in etched brass and rubber

Beatrice Wall, Hereford College of Art has crafted a collection of beetles that look like they could exist on Mars…. curious, cute critters with shiny enamelled carapaces and startling haircuts!!
