EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Iro KASKANI « en vedette » at Klimt02 !

Iro Kaskani interviewed by Klimt02

« Recently I realized that my curiosity is the most powerful motivating factor behind my work. I’m curious to see things that I visualize becoming facts, to elaborate an idea, to experiment on a certain technique, to see how this or that material is treated, to investigate on however a vision can be a wearable object and yet to see how others perceive my work. »

& Iro Kaskani on Klimt02

Where the LINE is all the story ……….. (aaaah !! « of course » ! she were an architect !!!!)

« Architecture is built environments, planned and designed to function as shelter or vessels of activities and thus it is fostering a physical relationship with the user, inhabitant or viewer. Jewelry takes this physical relationship further into intimacy by the change of scale and placement on the body… »

« Some years ago I used to believe: “my education and experience in architecture is guiding my creativity and my work is mostly determined by the interest to compose fine metals with alternative material and define new forms.”
Later on I concretised my thoughts stating: “Architecture is built environments, planned and designed to function as shelter or vessels of activities and thus it is fostering a physical relationship with the user, inhabitant or viewer. Jewelry takes this physical relationship further into intimacy by the change of scale and placement on the body. Through my work, I find it intriguing to explore ideas of space, scale and absence of symmetry, enabling me to combine precious metals with non-precious elements. Designing jewelry feels like investigating form, structure, and balance to derive a piece of art which will have an intimate physical relationship with the human body and will be completed only when it becomes part of the wearer’s experience and expression. A piece of jewelry is a powerful vehicle for communicating our identity.”
Recently I realized that my curiosity is the most powerful motivating factor behind my work. I’m curious to see things that I visualize becoming facts, to elaborate an idea, to experiment on a certain technique, to see how this or that material is treated, to investigate on however a vision can be a wearable object and yet to see how others perceive my work. »

Iro Kaskani - "Live in harmony " bracelet - sterling silver, monofilament cord 90X75X15mm (small to medium wrist): Iro Kaskani - « Live in harmony  » bracelet – sterling silver, monofilament cord – 90X75X15mm (small to medium wrist) – belongs to the « the space in between » collection
With the « the space in between » collection I elaborate the idea of creating a void, an empty space. I worked with silver to form cavities and gaps and spaced elements in order to create a void and then, in there, I presented a detailed work of threads

WHITES …… spring light ……..

  « Working on the « when I grow up » collection, my aim is to build « flesh » around a metal frame. I would like to create forms that highlight their components: an inner support, a core or a system of axis out of silver or copper, a body or a mass developed around it out of jesmonite and finally an outer surface, the skin.
Jesmonite is a composite material used in fine arts, crafts, and construction. It consists of gypsum based raw material in an acrylic resin. »

«The space in between»

Got the blues to begin 2017 with hope (for me, blue is a color of hope and it’s fine here because the collection, presented at JOYA 2016, is named « when I grow up…….« ) – Jewels made with  jesmonite & foam :

«  I aim to build « flesh » around a metal frame with an original surface of « skin ». I would like to create forms that give evidence of their structural elements: an internal support, core or axis, a body growing around it and finally an external surface, the skin  »

« Iro Kaskani studied architecture and jewelry design in Florence, Italy.
Her education and experience in architecture guides her creativity. Her work is mostly determined by the interest to compose fine metals with alternative materials and define new forms. She does not consider a piece of jewelry to be destined just for decorative purposes. If it was so, it would be so limiting. Jewelry becomes one with the person wearing it and unites with his/her unique personality. This is the true essence that influences and provides meaning to her work. »
