Sur le FIL du bijou, avec Henriette Schuster (Germany)

Congrats to all the artists who made the SCHMUCK 2016 list, on show at the Handwerksmesse  during #munichjewelleryweek  24/02–1/03/2016

Working with silver and thread, Henriette’s jewellery is arrestingly simple and direct: small elements, often in pairs, sit in delicate balance with one another, a subtle dance of interdependence and connection.

Henriette Schuster http://www.henrietteschuster.com/c.php: Henriette Schuster

« Almost Invisible » : « Henriette Schuster is a quiet jeweler, and the title of her show at Gallery Funaki Almost Invisible is perfect. She makes simple pieces with delicate domestic references or pure abstractions. There is nothing big or boisterous about her or her work. It is just humble, quiet poetry.
Susan Cummins: Henriette, what is your story? What compelled you to become a jeweler, and what was your path to learning how to do it?
Henriette Schuster: I have known I wanted to be jeweler since the age of six or seven. My grandfather built pianos, and I used to watch him at work when he handmade the keys using ivory, ebony, felt, bone, glue, and shellac. He didn’t say much, but one day he handed me a pair of his working pliers and a piece of wire. It was here that I began making jewelry.
I went against my parents’ wishes by dropping out of my studies in architecture and following the recommendation of Hermann Jünger to take up training in gold- and silversmithing at the renowned Neugablonz Fachschule für Glas und Schmuck (Neugablonz College for Glass and Jewelry). After completing my degree, I was accepted into the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich as one of Otto Künzli’s first students in 1991. I graduated in 2000. Simultaneously, I have worked in my own studio in Munich since 1988.
Can you talk about what you took away from your studies at the Academy in Munich? Are you still connected to a strong community of jewelers  who studied there? Do you work on jewelry projects together? What is a recent example?
Henriette Schuster: My training in Neugablonz had provided me with the skills to be a gold- and silversmith. That training is not a requirement but a good basis for further studies at the Academy. Entering the Academy meant leaving behind the safe terrain of the trade, even the jewelry, and facing the adventure of becoming an artist.
Artists are often envied for their freedom to do what they please, to think and work freely, but dealing with this kind of freedom is quite a challenge, and I realized this very quickly. To me, it means: paying attention to every detail; taking work and looking at it from another perspective or from upside down; always starting again, and not giving up but knowing when to give up; and taking time to find your own dialogue with your work, believing in it, and always double-checking. Find and hide. See and be seen. Fear and be brave.
For the past 13 years, I have worked in my small studio where I also have a gallery space. Here, I exhibit the works of other artists, not always jewelry artists. It is here, during the Schmuck fair in Munich, that I am able to reach an international public and to invite colleagues such as Lisa Walker, Karl Fritsch, Helen Britton, David Bielander, Volker Atrops, and most recently Doris Betz.
What leads you to pick the objects you include in your jewelry, such as balloons, cups, and mittens? Have you begun doing more abstracted shapes recently? Why? Does jewelry reflect the nature of the person who made it? Does yours? How?
Henriette Schuster: My work has always had a personal reference. I find metaphors for my memories, experiences, observations, difficulties, hopes, and dreams. I’m interested in the relationship (co-existence) of two elements and the balance they strike, how they move and fit together. I also apply these considerations to abstract geometrical forms. The abstract form allows a more spontaneous and playful way of working. These two themes have been the basis of my work ever since my studies.
Your jewelry is almost invisible. These days, the big and ambitious seems to steal the limelight, so why do you persist in doing things that don’t draw attention?
Henriette Schuster: When I hear this question, I remember that as a child I used to play the piano in the basement, hoping that someone would hear me….
Almost Invisible is what I called my drawings, and Katie Scott suggested that this should be the title of my exhibition at Gallery Funaki. I look upon the large stage from a distance, and at times I’m jealous, but it drives me crazy and exhausts me to take part in a big performance. And I can wait. I love working on my own. This is probably not a wise career choice, and some people even think I’m arrogant. But I feel nervous when people from all over the world who know my work come to visit. Last year, a visitor commented, “I love your work. It’s so humble.” This really touched me. » (THANKS to AJF)

STEFFI GÖTZE

Well … I knew yet Steffi Götze jewelry, loved it yet (her 2014 « In Between » collection), but I think this year was the « coup de coeur’ year » ! ;-) all these whites & light blue-whites ……. hold in these black prongs, structures for the « anima », open windows on imagination, on dreams ….. « la page blanche » ….. the white sheet where ALL can be written ….
Welcome to the « Inside outside » collection.

« My work is an experimental and personal dialogue with poetry, intuition, the conscious and the unconscious, culture, experiences, emotions… I communicate the basic human emotions and memories through color, textures and narrative objects. My work is like a souvenir one takes home from a trip abroad, allowing oneself to return to the moment of purchase and be flooded with all the memories.
My jewelries are wearable life stories. »

 » Perception is the interpretation of what we take through our senses. The way we perceive our environment is what makes us different from each other. I am interested in the connection of two concepts, the Inside and the Outside, and the undefined space in between of them. There are thousands of stimuli and experiences that come from the outside to touch our inside, like fragments of a puzzle. The way we put them together is what makes us unique »

From Idar-Oberstein ……. Anne Wiedau « Hybride »

Anne Wiedau I met Anne Wiedau at the first « Melting Point » in Valencia, in 2010, and had a « coup de coeur » (a 1st sight LOVE) for her ring I bought …… :-)

Anne Wiedau - Hochschule Trier - Semester (SS ´10) my ring !Anne Wiedau – Hochschule Trier – Semester (SS ´10)

She then had her diploma in 2011

« Hybride » « “Hybride” is the theme of my diploma work, witch closes the gap between modern computer technology and traditional jewelry crafting. Based of drawings I made in my childhood i created a unique jewellery piece and attached it with the help of modern “augmented reality” software. -> (LINK: http://www.anne.wiedau.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/MymoACTION.mov) During the development of the Hybrid-Project I draw together with children from a local Kindergarten. With the computer I abstracted the drawings and prepared them to be jewellery. With this material I started crafting individual jewellry pieces. The ready pieces are attached to the computer. The computer reads the jewellry like a marker and attaches the original drawing on the peace in augmented reality. » »

EXPO ‘Forgotten Stones / Vergessene Steine’ – Eva Maisch’s Gallery, Würzburg (DE) – 18 Avril-23 Mai 2015

Forgotten Stones – Art Jewelry Exhibition at Eva Maisch’s Gallery

neue Ausstellung « Vergessene Steine » wird am Samstag, den 18. April eröffnet.

 Eva Maisch gallery

Wir präsentieren Arbeiten von  Adam & Stoffel, Michael Becker, Rudolf Bott, Petr Dvorak, Annette Ehinger, Dominique Labordery, Deborah Rudolph, Nils Schmalenbach und Pia Sommerlad.

Lustrous and colorful, hard and imperishable: stones have piqued people’s interest since the early days of human history, when hunters and gatherers, our early ancestors, interpreted them as gifts from the gods and attributed healing and protective powers to them – and used them as jewelry. Over the course of cultural history, people have changed their notions and interpretations of them. Precious stones appeared in legends and fairy tales, and were incorporated in the crowns of aristocrats and the jewelry of wealthy citizens. They became status symbols, an economic factor and the subject of scientific research. In our day and age, precious stones continue to play an important role as jewelry elements or investments. In contrast to conventional gem-studded jewelry, which features gemstones in classical cuts and arranged in repetitive patterns, contemporary jewelry artists are using their own individual techniques to restore the magic of gemstones.

Some of the Forgotten Stones showcased at Eva Maisch’s gallery radiate an almost weightless aura, others display a heavy, solid quality, and others again surprise the beholder with unusually imaginative cuts or their natural crystal structure. They stimulate our senses with finely engraved textures or imposing cuboidal shapes. Combined with matte gold, blackened silver or stainless steel, or spotlighted without any setting at all, they provide impressive reifications of creative freedom and individuality. With her current exhibition, the Würzburg-based gallerist and goldsmith provides insights into the work of eminent designers. They developed their individual styles while studying at art academies and universities, and have been honored with many international awards. At 7:30 p.m. on April 28 and 29, 2015, there will also be a concert with the singer and songwriter Hubert Treml (ArtAurea)

  »Oscure Sacrifices II«  , Jorge Manilla  

Next Thursday is the opening of my exhibition Oscure Sacrifices II at the International Schmuck week in München, Germany
This year my guest artist are Dimitar Stankov and Jonathan Hens.
I see you there!!!

Oscure Sacrifice – Jorge Manilla,
Schmuck Week
The first part of this Exhibition has happen in Gothenburg City last January 2015.
Presenting the first part of a visual conversation I confronted works and meanings.
The emotional element which gives an obsessive value to communal existence is death.”  George Bataille
In 2010, I  began to work on my series “Only Memories”and “Dust of a Broken Love”, which were inspired by the deepest feelings and fears that we usually avoid, I tried to show with this work the moral and corporeal anatomy of the human soul. Since then, I’ve developed series in which I explore the darker side of human beings. With series like “Pain”, “Melancholia”, “Contemporary Savagery” and “Morbid Moves” .
I’ve researched  and reflected on  topics such as death, life, love, feelings, emotions in both the
psychological and physical aspects of people.
With “Oscure Sacrifice” ,  I seek  to confront  elements of  my previous work with a more positive human outlook. Preserving the mystery and abstractness of the dark side, I want to create new  forms that  originate  a feeling of hope. Shapes and material serve as translators of my thoughts, in my creative process through materials I strive to penetrate in the dark side of the society we live in and then represent an idealized – less  negative image of a society that in the last years has produced mass murders, not only physical but emotional and intellectual. My latest pieces are images born out of the dream of darkness, of hope or solely my instinct.
Jorge Manilla
Sacrifices II
Oscure Sacrifices II (statement by Jorge Manilla)
During the last four years I ve been researching and reflecting on topics as death life love feelings and emotion,in both the psychological and physical aspects of human beings.
Comunicating emotions is not easy people don’t Like to discuss them ans very often my works represents just that.
With my pieces I like to relate to the hidden the secretive, the unknown, and with this to create a mysterious air. My work keep things bottled up, hidden from the world.
I want to make pieces that make people think.
I dont like or want to make easy beautiful work, I want people to feel something when they re in in front of my work. Whether they like or deslike. It doesn’t matter as long as I , leave them thinking And feeling . I would like people to never forget that we are still alive And there is always something positive behind every Black cloud.

« Oscure Sacrifices I -
By creating  jewellery Jorge Manilla investigates his environment - religion, emotions, relationships and the meaning of life. 
Manilla has a professional background as a boxer and butcher. He observes violence and cruelty pragmatic and objective and his jewellery often express a brutal rawness – The last years the artist  re discovered his love for the black color, wich has been a constant in his life.
And since 2010 Manilla translate the rawness of life in materials…
For Jorge black relates to the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, and as a result it creates an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world.
With his dark forms and shapes he creates a barrier between the meanings of the objects and the outside world.
Black implies self-control and discipline, independence and a strong will, and giving an impression of authority and power.
Manilla think that black is the end, but the end always implies a new beginning. 
When the light appears, black becomes white, the color of new beginnings
The work of Jorge are beautiful punches that hit the viewer in solar plexus. » By Karin Roy Anderson

TROPHIES // IN THE REIGN OF COYOTE
The hunt is a ritual; through gathering, searching, and collecting we create amulets, myths, and trophies. The works of these jewelers are rooted in these traditions; they look to nature and translate what they see.To hunt is to gather, to search, to collect. Through hunting, making, the weaving of stories, we are able to resist modernity’s denial of belief, and to keep our ties with the natural world. There is a primal, universal longing for myth, for an understanding of the immeasurable power of nature, and an allure in conquering, transforming, becoming. The hunt is a ritual, a way to insert ourselves into an ages-old cycle. In hunting we take on the role of maker, turning one thing into another. In making we are shamans, translating worlds, perspectives, identity.These jewelers distinguish themselves through their sensitive treatment of nature. Their work utilizes the material language of the trophy through the use of animal imagery and materials. The transformations they wrought, and the stories they weave, set them apart from other makers and unify them through aesthetic and conceptual application. In the Reign of Coyote references a collection of stories about the earth’s becoming, fables of animal and human relationships. The work of these artists looks back to a time when we, as humans, turned directly to nature for guidance, sustenance, and support.
 Jane Dodd (NZ) - Jane Dodd
Jane Dodd works in metal, wood, bone, shell and makes pieces that investigate storytelling and narrative. She is particularly interested in exploring a dialogue between nature and culture.
Marta MattssonSwooping work by Märta Mattsson  for TROPHIES
  Märta Mattsson « Märta Mattsson   sees beauty in things that other people find strange or are even repulsed by. She becomes fascinated when there is something you do not want to see and by the feeling you get when you do not want to look at something, yet you still do. Her jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion. »

 Tanel Veenre  Tanel Veenre ‘s jewels take one on a journey that starts from the depths of the sea, continues on through coral reefs, past dancing sea horses and then on to the cultivation of silkworms. The voyage ends in a cosmic cloud.
Dark work by Lore Langendries for TROPHIESDark work by Lore Langendries for TROPHIES
Her research interests include the interaction between craft and industry, between unique and serial with a particular focus on (re)production, digital technology, tactility, the behaviour of materials and the subjective role of the maker. In her recent series, Hunacturing, Langendries is questioning the nature of reproduction via a combination of natural materials, mechanical treatment and the human touch.
 Aliyah Gold -  Aliyah Gold 
Animal imagery and animal-based materials have been used in jewelry dating back to the first civilizations. Gold challenges herself to create jewelry that contains the essence of an animal rather than merely a representation.
 Mallory Weston (USA)  Mallory Weston 
She works with a variety of medium including metal, fiber, concrete, and spray-paint creating bold, compelling, and interactive wearable art. Currently, she is exploring snake imagery, symbolism, and serpent dichotomies within
her work.
Steven Gordon Holman  Steven Gordon Holman
 he grew up in the West Desert (USA) where he developed a close relationship to the natural world. His work is invested in material and myth, both cultural and personal. Through the building of these myth he creates artifacts and amulets of The Tribe
 Anna Talbot  Anna Talbot
Anna Talbot’s jewellery is inspired by fairy tales, nursery rhymes, songs and stories. Wolves, deer, trees, forests and Little Red Riding Hood are all central elements in her universe, and they don’t necessarily stick to their traditional roles.
