Jiro KAMATA

« Jewellery is an object of value. This is the single most important notion in my work as an artist-jeweller.

I make jewellery from old camera lenses. The lenses I use have already retired from active duty, covered in a light layer of dust, sitting in some obscure corner in a camera shop. But Imagine if we were able to talk with these lenses what great stories they might tell us! They have witnessed so many memorable and precious moments from people’s lives.

An investigation of the meaning of ‘value’ is integral in the work of goldsmiths such as myself. What is the real meaning of value for human beings?
This question, always present in my mind, is what drives me to keep
creating jewellery.«   Jiro Kamata 2012

Selected 4 SCHMUCK 2016 : Ritsuko Ogura

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Japon (JP),No-Gram,Ritsuko OGURA (JP),SCHMUCK (DE) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:09

Ritsuko Ogura

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

Ritsuko Ogura (Born in Osaka in 1951) uses cardboard to make jewellery, giving new life to a material that is normally used for packaging and then discarded after use. She is attracted to the idea that cardboard does not catch people’s attention as a material in itself, as opposed to Japanese paper that is inherently beautiful, so she is able to give this poor material dignity by transforming it into wearable sculptures. She exploits the difficulty encountered in cutting cardboard to her advantage, using this drawback to create new modes of expression. The finished pieces resemble delicate lace-like structures, with the inclusion of colour in some parts, or simply left the natural brown of the original cardboard used. Ogura has in time mastered this humble material and skilfully creates voluminous pieces to be worn or simply admired. (No-gram)

born in Japan in 1951. After graduation at Tezukayama Women’s College she study jewelry under the leadership of Minato Nakamura. Her work has taken part in exhibitions internationally, and received major awards. Ritsuko’s works are made with cardboard, poor material and intended to discard. With her ability and extraordinary sensitivity in the processing of the surface and the use of color, she creates pieces of high design, to wear or even just to admire.

Selection 4 SCHMUCK 2016 : Kazumi Nagano

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Japon (JP),Kazumi NAGANO (JP),SCHMUCK (DE) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:06

Kazumi Nagano   delicacy, « delikatessen » …..

 

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

« Kazumi Nagano is an artist reaching back to ancient traditions and reinterpreting these in a contemporary form. Her work is still very much influenced by Nihonga, a technique that she studied during her university years. This is a traditional Japanese painting technique involving the use of rock pigments deriving from natural minerals. She makes use of colour as she would in painting, although the techniques to achieve the effect are different. She employs the weaving together of strands of metal such as silver and gold, silk, nylon and Japanese paper thread, to create different colour and texture patterns. The skilful use of this technique gives a refined quality to the pieces. Nagano conveys delicacy to her works by means of creating soft shapes. Interesting and unexpected effects can be produced by making woven material into three-dimensional shapes and by the sequence of colour combination, light and shade. The suppleness of the pieces facilitates interrelation with the human body and makes them all the more appealing to touch. Her pieces are very intuitive and are the result, at times, of a mere feeling. » (Alternatives Gal.)

Kimiaki Kageyama is Professor and Head of the Department of Metal at Hiko Mizuno Jewelry College in Tokyo, Japan

« The work of Kimiaki Kageyama, represented by gallery Deux Poissons, is a case in point. His iron rose brooch seems impossibly detailed and is a unique use of a base metal and resin to create a slightly decayed appearance. » (JapanTimes)

Kimiaki Kageyama is one of the most important Japanese Master Goldsmiths. He did a workshop at Alchimia school about « Japanese traditional copper alloys and coloring‘ (2013). In Japan, coloring metals has been experimented since 4th~5th century.  Direct coloring began around the end of the Heian period (794-1185) but it is during the Muromachi period (1330-1568) that the development of various kinds of copper alloys suitable for coloring flourished.

Yuki Sumiya (selected for Schmuck) with her “GARDEN ” series

Yuki Sumiya was student at Alchimia. Experimenting with the ideal relationship between man and nature.

« The ordinary and the extraordinary, existence and disappearance, permanence and transience, inside and outside, stillness and flow, visible and invisible…
My central theme is duality: focusing on the co-existence of two concepts, and then looking at the relationship between the two. Through my jewellery, I tyr to make the invisible visible. »

« I see this, in the synthesis of the natural and man-made in a beautiful garden,
where the gardeners have thinned out the cedar trees,
erected fences incorporating the original trees,
and also sown lawns interspersed with concrete surfaces,
the perfect balance that can be achieved between nature and human intervention moves me.
I want to ask, “How can we, man and nature, co-exist?””

In the ‘Garden’ series, I’m principally experimenting with the ideal relationship between man and nature. When I see this, for example in the synthesis of the natural and man-made in a beautiful garden, where the gardeners have thinned out the cedar trees, erected fences incorporating the original trees, and also sown lawns interspersed with concrete surfaces, the perfect balance that can be achieved between nature and human intervention moves me. I want to ask, “How can we, man and nature, co-exist?”
In the ‘Garden’ series, both the materials, silver and synthetic sponge, come originally from under the earth, since synthetic sponge is made from oil. When I use green sponge in my work, I use it to symbolize nature, but actually it is a man-made copy of nature.
This complex aspect of the combination of natural metal with synthetic sponge also raises the question of where the value lies in the piece.Yuki Sumiya - “GARDEN ” seriesYuki Sumiya – “GARDEN ” Brooch -oxidized silver, sponge

Kaori Juzu

«  »Jewellery » is a word that can give anyone a concrete image in a moment, though it is associated with so many different sorts of work.
The word itself is so common that no one seems to pay attention anymore.
And there could be a gap between my work and what people usually recognize as jewellery…
One day I found one precious name in danish which better describes,
what I experience in the process of making
« klenodie »
treasure, gem, jewel …just a small thing,
but it always makes me feel warm. »

« Handmade Enamel Treasures by Kaori Juzu
I love it when craft can pull through and show its face in a number of different realms. Often you see this in galleries, where an artist creates using handiwork that might be considered craft. But they don’t use the material for functional purposes, mainly for expression and to build on a concept or idea. If there’s someone who sits in this murky area it would be artist Kaori Juzu. Born in Fukuoka, Japan she moved to Bornholm in Denmark to study art, where she then founded a small line of jewellery. After training with well-known Danish jewellery designer Per Suntum, Kaori set up her own studio producing experimental brooches.
Kaori crafts by hand what she now calls ‘klenodie’. This title is a Danish word for artefact, gem, jewel, or treasure, encapsulating her pieces under this wide spectrum. She uses a mixture of copper, silver, and gold depending on the idea at hand. The metal is carefully hammered and sculpted in to shape, after a mixture of enamels (powdered glass) are applied to the metal which react in the kiln at high temperature creating a unique colour pattern and surface texture. Her forms and compositions are quite exquisite, they remind me of abstract objects carefully arranged on a canvas, the only twist is that they’re actually made of metal and are at a smaller scale. It’s fantastic to see such experimentation.
The more I explore as a creative the less I’m worried about the particular medium used. It’s more impressive to see a creative use a multitude of materials to bring an idea in to fruition, overstepping the boundaries as it were. I’m intrigued by Kaori’s work and can’t wait to see more from her in the near future, if you have time I’d recommend watching this video piece (see above) on how she produces these objects and what inspires her. » (An introduction by Mark Robinson at OEN – the189.com)
