Jewels for a new world Studio 20/17

Jewellery can transcend its physical reality and be a signifier of memory, or represent markers of the highlights of our lives. Jewellery encompasses our desires, the life cycles of loss and renewal or it can be a talisman, protecting us and bringing good fortune. With the horizon of 2014 in our sights, invited artists have created a body of work for our end of year exhibition ‘Jewels for a new world’, where they celebrate the past year, anticipate the new year and reflect on what contemporary jewellery means to them.

EXPO ‘Twice loved’ – Studio 20/17, Waterloo (Australia) – 19 Nov.– 7 Dec. 2013

‘Twice loved’ Julie Blyfield

‘Twice loved’ is a new collection of work by award winning contemporary jeweller, Julie Blyfield, based on interpretations of the historical patterns inscribed on discarded nineteenth-century ceramic shards and early twentieth-century kimono garments.

« Twice loved is a new collection of jewellery pieces based on interpretations of the historical patterns inscribed on discarded nineteenth-century ceramic shards and early twentieth-century kimono garments, which I photographed at the History Museum in Tokyo on a recent trip to Japan. Having merged, reworked and translated elements from the Japanese fabrics and the textures and patterns of the ceramic shards, the resulting rich layers of pattern were incorporated into precious items of jewellery. With sterling silver as my preferred choice of material, I use the traditional technique of metal chasing, which is a method of hand texturing the metal surface. Colour has been added, not only to provide contrast, but also a link to the original fabrics and ceramic fragments.

For years I have accumulated old pottery shards retrieved from diggings around the township of Silverton, north of Broken Hill in New South Wales; an area which from the mid to late 1800s was rich in silver mines. Decorated with remnants of landscape scenes, botanical motifs and scrolls of repetitive patterns, the random shards of old English ceramic plates and cups are representative of the everyday ware and domestic life of colonial Australia. The Japanese kimono designs similarly reflect the rich layering of history through the depiction of floral motifs as dynamic figurative and stylised patterns.

As a contemporary jeweller I intend my work to be worn, loved and used and consider this aspect an important step in the design process. I hope that my pieces are valued as they pass from the hand of the creator to the owner, adding new layers of meaning and interpretation.”  - Julie Blyfield

EXPO ‘Jess Dare: The Nature of Memory’ – Studio 20/17, Waterloo (Australia) – 2-20 Avril 2013

Jess Dare: The Nature of Memory – Jewellery & Objects

 Jess Dare detail  http://studio2017.com.au/(Lampwork glass detail)

Jess Dare’s exhibition, ‘The Nature of Memory’ explores the fragility of memory through a series of delicate glass plant specimens. Her interest in our innate human desire to preserve the natural world is realized throughought this series of miniatures and wearable objects. “In this exhibition I aim to express the ephemeral nature of memory through the fragility of glass and nature itself.”
Dare’s work references the idea that life, like memory is fleeting and fragile. She laments that the beauty and detail is often compromised when trying to replicate the intricacies of natural forms, with the exception of the Blaschka’s hyper-realistic glass models in The Natural History Museum at Harvard University. These exceptional pieces of glasswork have strongly influenced Jess Dare’s practice to date and she feels a connection within this current series to the documentary detail of these botanical models.
The series itself is composed of objects and wearable items, miniature glass succulent forms that are silicon moulded and cast in silver; transforming the delicate, fragile glass with its lustrous colour into sturdy, cold and almost lifeless silver replicas. Jess Dare explores the botany of the mind, accentuating the transience of memory through her intricate and fantastical miniatures.

Melinda Young: The World Is a Pearl  – Studio 20/17 (Waterloo, Australia)

the world is a pearl continues Melinda Young’s fascination with the quirks of her immediate surroundings; the things and people that inhabit them. For this exhibition she has sifted through collections of domestic items and the materials in her studio – old ideas are revived, new jewellery has been born from the detritus of old work and discarded objects. The results are an intimate collection of works that are a meditation on the rhythms, repetitions and colours of daily life in the midst of Sydney’s urban sprawl.

EXPO ‘Forever Plastic’ – Studio 20/17, Waterloo (AU) – 16 Oct.-3 Nov. 2012

Leanne Marshall and Hannah Carlyle : Forever Plastic

In a culture awash with disposable objects, is it possible for contemporary jewellery made from resin, a material often associated with mass-produced junk, to be considered ‘precious’ and be handed down through the generations?
Leanne Marshall and Hannah Carlyle explore these notions though their jewellery and showcase these ideas in their collaborative exhibition ‘Forever Plastic’. These artists are driven by challenging audience’s ideas about plastic jewellery, what it stands for and what it should look like. By combining resin forms with other materials and Sterling Silver; Hannah with semi-precious stones and Leanne with enamel, gem stones and cast organic silver forms, they elevate plastic jewellery into the realm of the artistic and precious.
Common to both artists is their love of colour and the processes of making resin – the pouring, layering of colour, and working the cured material to carve, sculpt and finish. Through experimentation these artists have developed different and specialised approaches to the material.
‘Forever Plastic’ will showcase new and original pieces of jewellery (earrings, neckpieces, rings and bracelets) from both Leanne Marshall and Hannah Carlyle.

EXPO ‘for the love of coffee’ – Studio2017, Waterloo (AU) – 2-13 Oct. 2012

« for the love of coffee »  – studio2017 – AU – 2-13oct

These contemporary jewellers love their coffee. We aren’t going to tell you that it’s the ‘be all and end all’ to their existence, but we reckon it would come in a pretty close second. Perhaps you might find that this show is not so much about the work rather the stories and anecdotes that can be shared over a good strong cup of Joe.

I assume one could parallel the making of coffee with the making of art or jewellery, but we won’t go that far. Really, all you need to know is that these Jewellers love their coffee. Without it, they might not have met up with an old friend and discussed their ideas, they might not have pulled apart their machine to see how it works, conversely they might not have built a machine to share the love, and they certainly might not have made the interesting, humorous and thought provoking work that you will see on display.
