selected for SCHMUCK 2015 : Kazumi Nagano

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 gallery)

 She graduated at the Tama University of Art, Tokyo, obtaining both a BA and an MA in art. Her jewellery career began in 1996 after having studied under Minato Nakamura. In 2002, she was awarded fine works prize in the Japan Art Jewellery Competition, Tokyo. Her works are part of the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, UK and the Alice and Louis Koch Rings Collection, Switzerland. She has taken part in numerous exhibitions and craft shows internationally, among which SOFA in Chicago and New York

COUP de COEUR pour les « délices de bouche » de Kazumi NAGANO

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Japon (JP),Kazumi NAGANO (JP),papier / paper — bijoucontemporain @ 13:16

…. On dirait de petites meringues, délicates, poétiques, fragiles, des « délices de bouche » …. mais ce sont « juste » des délices de bijoux ….. dont on imagine le doux croquant, le moelleux ……….

« Kazumi Nagano is a Japanese artist informed by ancient tradition and drawn to contemporary form. Her pieces mark a beautiful reinterpretation. She uses a technique called “Nahanga” to paint her jewelry using rock pigments to achieve incredibly delicate coloration. She also weaves strands of gold, silver, silk, nylon and paper thread together creating 3 dimensional shapes with an incredible suppleness. I want to reach out and touch them » (Craft & Culture)

« As if capturing the beauty of Japanese Nihonga paintings into her woven jewellery, epitomised by the moon, flowers, and subtleties of snow, it can be said that Kazumi Nagano (1946- ) is one of the leading Japanese artists in her field. Contemporary jewellery is currently one of the hotly-collected mediums in applied arts by museums and collectors, and Nagano’s works, which embody conceptual, structural and creative elegance, have been collected by the Victoria & Albert Museum and a multitude of various important private collections in recent years. Striking is the fact that Nagano had only delved into the world of jewellery after reaching the age of 50. Instead, she was formally educated as a Nihonga painter. Yet, as if painting the aesthetics of traditional Japan into her three-dimensional pieces, her seductive silhouettes are emblematic of the romanticism inherently found in the two-dimensional world of Japanese painting, of subtle flowers blowing in the wind, with reverence to the warmth of not the sun but of moonlight. Serenity, not dynamism, are the hallmarks of Nagano’s luscious forms made from materials such as gold and silver threads, even ‘bamboo tape,’ combined with the elasticity of the contemporary material that is nylon. » (Yukufu Gallery)

Yoko Shimizu

« My approach to jewellery often begins with a focus on the relationship between the jewellery piece and the human body.  I look for simplicity and harmony in this relationship through the process of making: experimenting with materials and forms, constructing one part at a time, pausing to see the effect on the body. In the end I feel the need to leave an imperfection or add or eliminate an element, so that there is something a bit off or unexpected, at times in search of tension, rigor, sometimes for a touch of warmth. »

Transformation « The theme of the series of necklaces in colored resin is ‘Transformation’. It is a part of a study in the transformation of forms, materials and colors. Pieces of wood are transformed into resin and the surface of wood is transferred onto the surface of resin. Transformation from wood to resin, from natural to artificial, from opaque to transparent. The transformation continues with the movement of the wearer and reflection of light, losing something but gaining something at the same time. »

Decouverte : Mariko Sumioka, architectured Japan

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Japon (JP),Mariko SUMIOKA (JP) — bijoucontemporain @ 11:24

Mariko Sumioka is a jeweller based in Edinburgh.  Inspired by Japanese traditional architecture and the spirit of Zen, her unique drawings and enamel techniques enable her to explore the inspiration into the wearable jewellery.

Pray for Japan, Mariko Sumioka http://www.artsthread.com/p/mariko-sumioka
Mariko Sumioka « Pray for Japan » brooch
« I feel awe and respect for natural and man-made objects which have been there and lived since ancient times.
This idea is deeply rooted in my origin: Japanese culture and environments. The Japanese respect, understand and accept nature as one of their members. I am fascinated by Japanese traditional architecture, which is an essential part of human lives as a central part of a culture and a place where people have basic connections with natural surroundings.
I am inspired by Japanese unique architectural characteristics: natural materials and colours, dark and bright contrasts, linear forms, geometric shapes and spaces.
Since human beings live in architecture, there are some reasons in each element. I have researched theoretically and visually into those handed down traditions and tried to bring them into my pieces of jewellery.
My work explores a connection with human bodies and how the wearer and viewer interact with each other, themselves and the objects. Also, studying the principle of Zen and the essence of the Japanese love of nature helps me to understand people’s attitude behind their culture.
Drawing is an essential part of my creation, especially collaging. By adding elements onto others, I always find many different ways of assembling these elements in both drawing and creating jewellery. This technique also helps me to break down my original thoughts into different ideas, and to find new ideas and designs by abstracting elements.
Enamelling with simple colours enables me to explore my images of natural materials and textures which can be found in Japanese architecture. 
I have also challenged and investigated contemporary ideas of jewellery as sculptural objects or body pieces. I do not force people to wear a piece in a certain way, but want people to play with my pieces and find their own ways of wearing them.  » (dazzle-exhibitions)
