EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Julia Obermaier – coup de coeur « lapidaire »

Julia Obermaier

C’est drôle comme « le hasard fait bien les choses » …. Ou, il n’y a pas de hasard ….Un de mes problèmes majeurs dans ma vie actuelle est ma « distance aux gens » … trop près, trop loin, je ne sais jamais où, comment me situer …. trop au bord, spectateur, voyeur, ou trop « dedans », trop impliqué … J’avais coutume de dire à mes enfants « la liberté de chacun, c’est comme une bulle : tu as ta bulle, qui te protège et t’entoure, mais elle est fragile et se « brise » facilement. Et chacun a la sienne. Il faut réussir à t’approcher des gens de manière à ce que ni ta bulle ni la leur n’éclate. C’est ça la liberté de chacun, c’est ça « ta liberté commence là où fini la mienne ». C’est un délicat jeu d’équilibre » …. Je me rappelle, ils m’écoutaient bouche bée ….. Eh bien c’est exactement de ça que parlent les bijoux de Julia Obermaier ! « The distance between people« , the « Private space » ….. Cette découverte m’apporte une immense émotion, et ce d’autant plus que …. comment dire ? ses bijoux me touchaient, je ne savais pas pourquoi, parce qu’à priori ce n’était pas « mon genre » de bijoux mais plus un « genre », un style de bijoux, très prisé actuellement parmi ce qui vient d’Idar-Oberstein ……

Julia Obermaier – (Sur)face the space.
« Private space. Working area. The distance between people. The distance between the world and me. Space is a really important subject for me. If someone is crossing the borders of my spaces without permission, it causes a bad feeling within me. That is why I try to protect them as much as possible. But in daily life, one cannot always keep direct surroundings and personal space in their preferred way. This is because our outside world is always in relation with other people and circumstances.
To build my own spaces I cut slices out of agate or rock crystal.  They represent rooms, spaces, containers, boxes or little caves. Some of my works have empty spaces with corners or nooks, while others have an inner life through engravings I cut within the pieces. I am generating space which can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer.
In contrast to the large space around us filled with other people, I see these pieces as a part of ourselves. They are little copies of the viewer or the wearer. The space inside is reserved for what people find within themselves. The outside surrounding, which is not always controllable for us, becomes the protector of what lies within the piece.  The wearer can then decide if and who is allowed to approach the work, take a look or even touch it. The pieces embody ideas of a second skin and soul protector from the outside world.  They are meant to induce a comforting feeling of inner silence for the wearer, that they can use to confront a busy world. »

« With her bachelor thesis Julia Obermaier delivers a statement of monumental grandeur. To do so, working mainly in agate and rock crystal, is a matter of concentration and patience as well as of spatial transition. Acquiring an extended awareness of space and volume, in the sense of an architectonic perspective,  paired with an empathical sensibility for the wearers and observers body and mind, and at the same time bordering the restrictions of jewellery is a remarkable feature of Obermaiers process of work. The result is a collection of wearables in gemstone with a high quality of sensitivity. As an object, Obermaiers pieces are intriguing and inviting, as soon as they are worn and in unity with the body, they show an until than almost hidden sensuality. » / Theo Smeets

« Agate is one of my most favorite materials. The huge secrecy and variety of agate as a stone and its use over centuries is attracting me in my work. Studying the layers and druses of agate amazes me and makes me curious. What is happening? What is in there? I want to arise these feelings as well in the wearers and viewers of my pieces. You can find sensitivity, strength and multifaceted sides not just in agates, as well in every other living creature. »

Autor 2016.  Jonathan Hens. Alliages Choice.: Jonathan Hens works presented at Autor 2016  

« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to launch his fetishism line.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. He heightens the geometry and black textures by using suture thread to bind the various elements.
His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference betweens the sexes.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. » / Jorge ManillaJonathan Hens -   THE CITY IS MY CHURCH - 2014 - #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ LatexTHE CITY IS MY CHURCH – 2014 – #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ Latex

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 … Annie HUANG

Annie HUANG

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

Annie Huang.Annie Huang  – « Sense of Belonging » 2015 – stacked neckpieces.

Annie Huang - collection 2015 "sense of belonging"Annie Huang – collection 2015 « sense of belonging »

« Annie Huang is a South African-Taiwanese jewellery designer. Having lived in multiple countries, she is intrigued by cultures especially in arts and languages. Gaining her education in contemporary jewellery at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham, UK, has allowed her to step into the niche world of art jewellery. 

15/06/2015- 18/06/2015: Graduate Show at The School of Jewellery, Birmingham, B1 3PA. (Annie Huang)

 For her current collection, she uses jewellery as a creative medium to explore the personal sense of belonging of individuals. She invites both jewellery and non-jewellery wearers to share their stories over a hot drink. As she listens and writes, the words written are then transformed onto metal to be formed into multiple layers representing the designer’s aesthetics. The burnished edges and lines of the layered metal, exploits the depth of human emotions and aims to provoke thought on where one truly belongs.

 Annie Huang - Sense of Belonging 2015 -   neckpieces detailAnnie Huang - Sense of Belonging 2015 -   neckpieces detail & textures

The jewellery is organic and imperfect to resemble a branch on a tree. There are certain bark like textures that seem to almost peel off, to resemble a partial unveiling of the self. The colours range from autumn leaves, to subtle grey tones, intended to allow viewers to contemplate their thoughts without distraction. On closer inspection, some pieces have visible words that the audience can choose to interpret or they can ask the designer to share the full story. The aim is to communicate, share and relate through art jewellery »

 Annie Huang -Sense of Belonging 2015 - metal, silver plated, oxidised, small broochAnnie Huang – « Sense of Belonging » 2015 – metal, silver plated, oxidised, small brooch

« Jewellery holds the sentiments of our attitudes towards life. The raw emotions of the maker, the expressions of the purchaser and the touch of the wearer, this is what has caught me into the contemporary jewellery world. It’s not just the creating but also the stories. »

« The inspiration for the ‘Sense of Belonging’ collection, came from looking at bird nests to the branches that they hang off of. Whilst playing around with the metal, the intricate layers formed caught my eye. The metal although malleable, has a will of its own. With limited control, the organic nature is allowed to form, this is evident in the burnished lines, colour and space between the layers. »

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 !
