The specific combination of qualities within a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds of the same pitch and volume is its ‘timbre’. While Simon Cottrell‘s works are tangible and far less transient than any sound can ever be, this term which defines the inherent small differences within similarities seems more than apt to apply. The ongoing and slowly shifting use of certain preset parameters with only a singular material, monel, and an achromatic palette, has become his formal language. Working within this sameness has lead him to focus more closely on the possible variances within those systems of working, and heightens the sensitivity to relationships between tiny details within one piece or acrosspast works.

“I have no need to hurry or progress in leaps and bounds. Each piece is conceived primarily for an existence in collaborating with a wearer towards their communication of self. From a wearer’s perspective, prior relationships between other earlier works of mine are insignificant. As ever my work retains a decisive avoidance of direct allusions or clearly resolved representation. This is not so much by thorough pre-­‐planning, rather by only allowing coy suggestions of subjects to repeatedly rise in a responsive and intuitive process of making, and then continuing countering those subjects. The result usually evokes something between anything and nothing.”

Devils and Their Friends by Helen Britton

09 Jun -  24 Jul 2015 at Sienna Patti – Lenox, USA

The newest collection of rings by Helen Britton, « Devils and Their Friends », are now in exhibition at Sienna Patti. The pieces have roots in her long time fascination with popular culture and its everyday remains and are exclusive to the gallery.

Devils and Their Friends by Helen Britton Exhibition  /  09 Jun 2015  -  24 Jul 2015 at Sienna Patti - Lenox, USAHelen Britton - Ring: Dough Devil, 2015 – Gold, diamonds

« Devils and Their Friends
If I think about when this work started, then of course I quickly land in the forests of Thüringen and the first of the Devil ring series in 2007. But then that work really stared with visits to that region in 2001. Recently I unearthed a stack of drawings from my late teen and early twenties: wild pigs, black dogs, old cars and headless horsemen. Clearly the things that attracted me to the Forest were not something new.
There was always a dark side, an interest in spooky things, and the obsession with Ghost trains is now common knowledge. But they were also comical, harmless and popular things, things that made their appearances not only at fairgrounds, but also in cartoons on TV or in the jewellery that rolled out of the trinket automat at the supermarket. Popular culture and the everyday remains the baseline in much of my work.
The characters in this series inhabit an imaginary world that has its roots in the Forest [1] work, Unheimlich[2] and these early drawings. Smooth Devil, Stone Devil, Wood Devil, Dough Devil, Fire Devil, Eel, Water Sprite, Millipede, Swine and Old Tree. These characters have broken through to the surface of this deep old river of preoccupation, crept out of their dank and mossy worlds and I have captured their likeness before they slip back under the surface and head on their merry way. » - Helen Britton, 2015.

Life in Southern California, with it’s unreal-real sunsets, the faded colors of light-bleached buildings, and the vestiges of seventies SoCal lifestyle in all it’s cliched glory, brought my foggy memory to a saturation point, forming crystals of an experience known and unknown to me. This California “dream” condensed into symbols of deeper meaning —tacky images of palm trees and sunsets, mid-century modern architectural screens, men’s striped velour sweaters, and phallic vessels. These symbols coalesced into objects with varying physical relationships to the body —some at the scale of architecture, some at the scale of jewelry, some in between. These degrees of magnification describe levels of intimacy and highlight the similarities between how architecture and jewelry operate. Both contain more than just the body.”

artist reception June 28 5-7 pm

Biba schutz3(Puckered UpOne of a kind Necklace Rosé glass sterling silver9″x9″x1.5″)


HALF FULL is the evolution of the artist’s personal relationship with materials, process, and emotion. This new body of work is a dialogue on the challenge and seduction of glass and metal, the movement and communication between liquid and crystal. The visceral quality of glass speaks to Schutz’s intuitive process and fluidity of her language as an artist, a journey continually considering the body and wearability. Schutz’s pieces offer space for contemplation and places to hide—a dance between what’s revealed and obscured, porous and dense, light reflected and absorbed. Light itself becomes a material, saturated within the glass and reflected outward. An inward journey given form, the work connects fantasy and memory through the structure of jewelry and adornment.
Trained as a graphic designer and printmaker, Biba Schutz has been a practicing, self-taught metal smith and jeweler for more than 20 years. She is well known for combining unexpected materials with metal in her wearable art. In 2012, she began incorporating glass into her jewelry designs and was the recipient of an Artist Residency at The Corning Museum of Glass in the spring of 2014.
Schutz’s works can be found in public and private collections around the world including the Racine Art Museum, Racine, WI; Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; and Rotasa Foundation, Mill Valley, CA. She has received the Award of Excellence from the American Craft Council and the Award of Excellence in Jewelry at the Smithsonian Craft Exhibition. She currently lives and works in New York City.

EXPO ‘But if the Crime is Beautiful….’ – Sienna Gallery (US) – 8 Fevr.-23 Mars 2014

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Sienna Patti (US),Lauren KALMAN (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:15

Lauren Kalman : But if the Crime is Beautiful….  – Sienna Gallery

Sienna Patti and Sienna Gallery are pleased to present the newest works by artist Lauren Kalman
Lauren Kalman | February 8 – March 23, 2014 - Sienna Gallery

But if the Crime is Beautiful…. consists of fabricated and found objects combined with the body to produce sculptural compositions. These sculptures are documented and exist as photographs. The objects used to make the compositions are installed among the sculpture/photographs as residue of the action. The title of the project, But if the Crime is Beautiful…, and the series in this exhibition, Composition with Ornament and Object, are derived from Adolf Loos’ 1910 lecture Ornament and Crime. With “but if the ornament is beautiful” he is quoting the naive (in his view) population’s defense of ornament as long as it is beautiful. His proposition is that ornament is regressive and primitive, that in (his) contemporary society only degenerates and criminals are decorated (this includes women). The “crime” in my work points not only to the decorated but also to deviant sexuality and female sexuality, especially 19th and early 20th century constructions, of which our current understanding of sexuality is built upon. Loos’ writings on architecture and functional art helped to define the principals of the Modern Architecture movement and eventually the Bauhaus. The influence of these movements permeates the contemporary built environment and therefore impacts our psychological and bodily relationship to space and objects.

Lauren Kalman is a visual artist whose practice is invested in installation, video, photography and performance.

She has taught at institutions including Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. Currently she is an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. She exhibits and lectures internationally. Her work had been featured in exhibitions at venues including the Centro Cultural Recoleta, Museum of Contemporary Craft, Contemporary Art Museum Houston, and the deCordova Museum.

Sienna Gallery - August_22  RAISSA_BUMP selected_works
Raissa Bump is an artist born in the North East who is currently working in the San Francisco Bay area. She works in collaboration, joining materials and techniques of the clothing and jewelry she is making. Her inspiration often stems from the incredible history of all that is worn on the body–she is thrilled to contribute her own designs to the rich history of adornment! Raissa received her BFA with honors from Rhode Island School of Design and also studied in Florence, Italy at Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewelry with Giampaolo Babetto. Enriched by a curiosity in the parallel, yet sometimes blurry line between jewelry and apparel, Raissa’s work is fueled by a direct response to contrasting materials that when together create complementary relationships.

« My work is an investigation of clothing patterns, weave structures, architecture and bits of nature. I allude to these explorations without suggesting a literal reference. Front could be back, top could be bottom, what is visible, what is concealed; many layers are parts to a whole. My process allows for me to add and take way, to see, feel, respond, question and remember. I get clues from the inherent nature of different materials. Using them within the same piece, employing repetition and shifting of scales to highlight these intrinsic qualities. Surfaces reflect light or absorb it.shadows that distort or accentuate. Various patterns, colors, textures and surface treatments interact; their juxtaposition is key and often surprising. It is a way of organizing thoughts and guiding ones eye throughout a piece. What is seen depends on the light, the color the clothing that is being worn, or the mood ones in; there are multiple solutions to the same problem. It is about acknowledging a moment in time. Working with materials in hand, labor, an unfolding of ideas. The act of dressing and adorning. These expressions of nonverbal communication become a record, a reflection. They connect us individually and as a culture with our past and with our future.«

« …I recently began using pre enameled sheet steel, forming it, soldering it, and creating simple forms that reveal the life cycle of the resulting piece. They are intentionally raw, their surfaces containing hundreds, thousands of little cracks.  Solder is left on the surface, flux will come out over time, and because the steel is distressed (by forming), it will continue to shed bits of enamel.  They will age and evolve, gaining rust losing enamel while the diamonds and rubies on the surfaces will remain the same. I am considering my own evolution and what it means to transition into the next period of my life.  In a culture that values youth as the highest form of beauty in an industry (jewelry) motivated by beautification, these pieces reflect back the changes I see in my mirror every morning.  This jewelry will eventually disintegrate leaving some lonely diamonds and rubies behind. (In my imagination, they are the true loser in the story). Optimistically, I want this work to “die” making room for what will come next.  Part of my responsibility as an artist is to think of future generations and what they might need in order to make room for what jewelers sometime down the road will want to make… »
