( Jorge Manilla - Necklace: The damages never forgotten, 2017 Leather, steel. 52 x 20 x 7 cm)

« Trying to find the answers about why the last time I am often overcome with waves of different emotions.
I decided to make work as a kind of personal emotional archive to read and understand this feeling in a different way.
These moments are very unpredictable and very often take me along very unexpected paths that can go from the desperation to the calmness, from the nostalgia to the happiness I have more and more the feeling I need to express something and using materials, shapes, textures, colours, emotions, feelings as tools try to make individual small stories and even when this confrontation is not easy I don’t want to lose the ability to be comprehensible to any sensitive people.

I often worry that people is indifferent to this kind of expressions in art and refuse to experience purely emotional response to purely visual, static artistically expressions in this case my jewellery pieces. Doing this personal archive, I want to create images that I think will trigger the people with their feelings, images of personal experiences, memories of pleasure of maybe memories of pain. And I enjoy of my work adding visual elements that confirm messages of create confrontations. I like to do and show the process of the work and the making, some pieces looks like not finished, the Intime moments in the studio that can show that making this kind of work can be very hard and mentally draining.
Realizing this made me feel a little more relaxed about wasting my life creating jewellery pieces. Like so many things in life, it is more about the journey than the destination and, it seems that people can find and appreciate these struggles and emotions in the finished pieces. I want to abrupt the general feeling and discover new messages on it, I want to abrupt the materials and create my personal way of communicate, I want to abrupt my emotions and let me go to a new dimension of feelings.« Jorge Manilla

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Ute van der PLAATS at LOOT spring 2017

Ute van der PLAATS

have been selected to participate in the 2017 spring edition of LOOT: Mad About Jewelry at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. From April 4 through 8, 2017

‘LOOT: Mad About Jewelry’ Returns this Spring with 54 Artists from 21 Countries

LOOT spring 2017

From April 4 through 8, 2017, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) presents LOOT: MAD About Jewelry, the annual exhibition and sale of contemporary art jewelry. Now in its 17th edition, LOOT presents a cross-section of the most exciting cutting-edge art jewelry designs, while offering the public a rare opportunity to meet and acquire pieces directly from some of the most skilled creators in the field. A striking example of the evolving possibilities of jewelry as an art form, LOOT: MAD About Jewelry champions the vision and craftsmanship of outstanding art jewelers—most of whom have never before shown work in the United States.

This year’s edition welcomes 54 artists from 21 countries, the majority of whom have never been shown in New York. All were selected by Bryna Pomp following a full year of travel and research. For the first time, LOOT will feature three artists from Iceland and one from Romania. There will also be artists from Argentina (1), Austria (2), Belgium (1), Canada (1), Denmark (3), Finland (2), France (5), Germany (4), Greece (2), Holland (1), Israel (1), Italy (5), Korea (2), Norway (1), Portugal (1), Spain (2), United Kingdom (10), and United States (6). [.....]

The 2017 presentation includes driftwood, neoprene, marble, sheer plywood, textiles, ceramic, aluminum, beading, and acrylic. A significant trend this year is the use of recycled materials, including china tableware, plastic bottles and shopping bags, and even skateboards.”
This year, over two dozen artists have designed jewelry using natural forms as their subjects. Artists showcasing their nature-inspired designs include Hebe Argentieri (Argentina); Katharina Eder (Austria); Ute van der Plaats (Belgium); Aino Favén (Finland); Silke Lazarević (Germany); Guðbjörg Ingvarsdóttir (Iceland); Mario Salvucci (Italy); Sowon Joo (Korea); Sunyoung Kim (Korea); Åse-Marit Thorbjørnsrud (Norway); Raluca Buzura (Romania); Ana Hagopian (Spain); Jane Adam (UK); Jacqueline Clarke (UK); Olivia Creber (UK); and Iradj Moini (USA). Visitors will meet Finnish artist Inni Pärnänen, who makes floral designs using sheer plywood, and English artist Rie Taniguchi, whose jewelry depicts animals and birds. Fellow English jewelry artist Olivia Creber uses molten metal with minerals, while French artist Delphine Nardin uses sea glass, gold, and silver to design jewelry inspired by the ocean. And Icelandic artist Helga Mogensen uses driftwood and visible threads to create unique statement necklaces. »

 

THE LOOT ACQUISITION PRIZE
Awarded by a jury, the LOOT Acquisition Prize seeks to recognize a LOOT jewelry artist whose work reflects a maturity in artistry and concept; exhibits both a superior and experimental understanding of materials and form; and demonstrates expertise in technique and execution. The 2017 jury is chaired by William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator Shannon R. Stratton, Assistant Curator Barbara Paris Gifford, and LOOT Curator Bryna Pomp. The 2017 LOOT Acquisition Prize will be awarded on April 3 at the Opening Benefit dinner.

 Ute van der PlaatsUte van der Plaats

« Born in Germany and based in Brussels, Belgium, Ute van der Plaats has worked as a jewelry designer since 2009. In addition to contemporary jewelry, she has a passion for graphic design and ceramics, and her latest collection combines these three disciplines. A few years ago, she discovered porcelain—the white gold—and fell in love with it. Since then, this pure material has become the starting point in the creation process of her jewelry collections. She is attracted by its translucent white color, the fragile appearance that belies a surprisingly solid character, and the almost sensual texture of unglazed porcelain. By integrating different materials, such as 3D-printed ornaments and digitally designed images, into handcrafted porcelain creations, she translates traditional jewelry concepts into contemporary pieces. «

ARTIST HIGHLIGHTS :

  • Ferràn Iglesias Barón (Spain) has over 20 years of experience in goldsmithing, encompassing academic studies and written publications, teaching, and exhibitions. He is the recipient of numerous awards. Essence and meaning are two driving forces of his growth and creative process. Barón uses the interaction of different mediums and chromas to express emotion, transcending aesthetics to create a new form of beauty and appeal.
  • Ute van der Plaats (Belgium) integrates different materials, such as 3D-printed ornaments and digitally designed images, into handcrafted porcelain creations, thus translating traditional jewelry concepts into contemporary pieces.
  • Michelle Cangiano (Australia) produces limited-edition handmade contemporary jewelry and one-off pieces for private commissions. For her “Paper Cuts” collection, Cangiano draws on her painting background and employs the simple yet time-consuming technique of threading and knotting paper discs to create pieces that seem to shift and change color as they move with the wearer.
  • Julie Decubber (France) specializes in antique porcelain and earthenware plates, turning ordinary objects into unique jewels that explore the theme of memory. Decubber cuts and reassembles pieces in order to highlight what is precious in the ordinary, applying techniques of the jeweler, stonecutter, and potter to generate elegant and unexpected combinations.
  • Aino Favén (Finland) moves between art and design to explore the achievements of nature and man. Her pieces made of translucent plastic bags are subtle comments on the large trash islands floating in oceans and endangering nature and wildlife. They also serve as memorial garlands for birds and other animals who have died from eating plastic waste.
  • Aurélie Guillaume (Canada) is reviving the idea of narrative in enameling through a contemporary context fueled by street art, comics, pop art, and counterculture. A jeweler, enamelist, and illustrator, she begins her designs with illustrations, which through the process of enameling are given new life in the physical world as wearable objects.
  • Guðbjörg Ingvarsdóttir (Iceland) takes inspiration from the Icelandic wilderness. She allows her collections to continually evolve, underlining the organic process of translating concept into finished article.
  • Sunyoung Kim (Korea) finds inspiration in the world of plants, which though frail have a strong hold on life. She focuses on representing this strength with thin metal plates, which she processes through hammering and injection using various chasing tools.
  • Konrad Laimer (Italy) has defined his works through themed workshops ranging from jewelry to objects and graphics. Through installations, international workshops, and multimedia works, he transfers his concepts to various artistic mediums and locations. The Alps have become Laimer’s main source of inspiration in regard to both themes and materials.
  • Silke Lazarević (Germany) focuses on natural materials, with the aim of expressing their inherent qualities and various potentialities. She finds inspiration in the coincidence involved in the process of working with parchment, which as a natural product follows its own logic.
  • Helga Mogensen (Iceland) creates neckpieces of all sorts, as well as smaller-scale works such as earrings, using driftwood in combination with thread and sterling silver. Mogensen considers the thread to represent human connection.
  • Iradj Moini (United States), a jewelry designer with a background in architecture, specializes in the usage of bold stones. In 2006, his jewelry was on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of Iris Apfel’s collection, in addition to being featured at the Louvre, where he has three pieces in the permanent collection.
  • Delphine Nardin (France) designs jewelry around pieces of found sea glass, rough stones formed billions of years ago, and other collected relics. She combines these found eroded treasures with 18-karat gold or silver to create completely unique, delicate, and understated pieces of wearable history, which forge new links between archaeology and modernity.
  • Hélène Prime (France) creates unique pieces made of horn and of leather, each adorned with semiprecious stones. All of her creations are handmade with the greatest care in Paris and produced in limited series, using metal gilded with fine gold and natural stones.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Juan HARNIE – Aesthetical Injection

Juan Harnie 'Aesthetical Injection' - Brooch Juan Harnie ‘Aesthetical Injection’ – Brooch

Designing this collection Juan Harnie used medical materials to create attractive, floral looking jewellery. Juan has always seen beauty in materials that have little to no aesthetical value to others. These materials in particular are usually linked to unpleasant situations like hospitals and doctor visits, but now they are taken out of this context and made into uncanny pieces of jewellery.
Juan got his inspiration from flowers and plants, which always seem to please the eye of the beholder. Even when a plant or flower turns out to be hazardous, poisonous or possibly deadly, at first people will always attribute positive feelings towards seeing them. Contradictory, syringes that are designed to administer medicine and in fact heal people are met with fear, disgust and a general feeling of unease. Using these syringes in colourful, floral pieces of jewellery, mimicking the shape and colour of the ever-so-loved flower, might just make people reconsider their initial feelings towards syringes and see the beauty the designer saw in them.
In addition to the syringes, sterile medical gauze is used to imprint the silver backs of the pieces. This medical gauze once again fulfils its original purpose: being worn on the body and thus soothing an inner ache.

Marion Lebouteiller   new works

« I have been experimenting a lot with wax over the past two months. I heat it up in a pan until it reaches the perfect temperature then I twist and stretch it in order to get stunning textures. I love the unpredictable nature of the warm wax as well as the spontaneity of my gesture and movement. The wax cools down so fast that I have to work very fast! This process definitely allows the material to express itself to its full potential! The wax pieces have then been cast in silver, and these earrings have  just been uploaded onto my online shop!« 

// J’ai passé une bonne partie des deux derniers mois à faire des expériences avec de la cire : je la chauffe jusqu’à la température idéale, puis je l’étire et la torsade jusqu’à obtenir de superbes textures… Les pièces en cire sont ensuite fondues en argent. J’aime le côté imprévisible de cette technique qui m’insite à travailler de manière très spontanée et aussi très rapide car la cire refroidit extrêmement vite ! Les boucles d’oreilles ci-dessus viennent juste d’être finies et elles sont maintenant disponibles dans ma boutique !

Some new work that will be at « Wild Women Wearable Art » and « One of a Kind« .  (One of a Kind, The Mart, Chicago, IllinoisThe 2nd annual Spring Show returns April 28-30!)

« I make my jewelry from metal I find at the thrift store, silver plate trays, brass and sometimes bits and pieces I find while on walks. There is always a bit of rusty bolts and stuff in the bottom of my purse! I love to transform something others thought had no value into wearable art jewelry, you should see what I do with PVC I find from the street. »

Roxy Lentz earrings - processRoxy Lentz earrings – process – The finished earrings. I filed the edges, fused the ends with small bits of silver, and used a wire brush to put a sheen on the surface, and to remove the grime that happened when using the torch. Since I put the torch on the back side, I did preserve some of the beautiful « orange peel » on the front. Now, I could leave these like this, or take a chance and put them in a pickle pot to make them silvery. I like the patina, and I think my customers do too. That beautiful gold sheen on the right side of the right earring, it did it all on its own, that is why these are one of a kind, and uncommon jewelry for independent women.

You can see that the base metal of this bowl was brass, because of the soft gleam on the edge of the flowers. After soldering on the post I put the brass base in pickle to clean the post, then I put it in a rinse of hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar to clean the fire scale off the brass. Some more buffing with a brass wire brush on the flex shaft. The earrings are about 2 1/2 inch long, and 1 1/2 wide. There are some similar at In Tandem Gallery and Gaia in Winston Salem NC.

Artist Statement
The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become. 
My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence. It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions.

Museo José Hernandez en Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Inauguracion Viernes 10 de febrero 2017 18:30 hs
Rafael Luis Alvarez -  KOSMOS, UNA COLECCION DE PINTURA, DIBUJOS, FOTOGRAFIAY JOYERIA:
El viernes 10 de febrero de 2017 a las 18.30 horas el Museo de Arte Popular José Hernández inaugura la exposición KOSMOS. Joyería, fotografía, dibujo y pintura.
Reconocido como uno de los más destacados orfebres contemporáneos de Argentina, Rafael Álvarez reflexiona acerca de lo sutil y contenedor, lo liviano y etéreo, la intuición, lo fantástico y la imaginación. El cosmos, un gran hueco que se crea a cada instante, nuestro espacio cercano que a cada minuto aparece y desaparece interpelado por sus límites.
Las obras surgen de una búsqueda artística subjetiva, conceptual y material con la intención de querer expresar en la joyería cualidades relacionadas a lo femenino. El metal entonces se presenta como demasiado rígido. La investigación lo lleva por los caminos de la pintura, el dibujo,  la fotografía y el video, y encuentra en el caucho las cualidades deseadas.
Kosmos es un  universo femenino. Gea, Ceres, Maya, Venus, Diana, Metis, Io y Hera son las mujeres que habitan este espacio. Representantes de una estirpe mitológica que al mirar el infinito no se nombran aunque están presentes.

Isabel TRISTAN

… et les voiles laisser partir … vogue à l’âme …. quitté l’année 2016 en douceur pour mieux voguer vers la nouvelle année 2017 ……

Pour Isabel Tristan l’inspiration est allée de l’évier au voilier, ou du voilier, passant par les formes dans l’évier, est arrivées à des « voiles » bijou …. elle cite Picasso pour expliquer son inspiration : “La inspiración existe, pero tiene que encontrarte trabajando” . L’inspiration doit te trouver travaillant …. De « corvée vaisselle », il y a dû y avoir un entrechoc d’images, de souvenirs, de formes …… « Et voilà » !

Inspirations et sources pour la série de pièces « Platos » présentées à l’exposition « Página en Blanco » au dernier « Melting point » 2016 a Valencia …..

bateau réalisé par le père d’Isabel, Antonio Tristan, lequel lui enseigna la technique pour courber le bois, technique qu’elle utilise actuellement pour ses bijoux

Maintenant que les images se sont rencontrées, passé/présent, au travail, le processus de création est enclenché ! « depuis la navigation chaotique d’un plat entre les 4 parois d’un évier jusqu’à la navigation fluide, librement et sans obstacles, traçant ses traversées d’un port à l’autre«

Este proyecto auna 2 aspectos: la evolución de su anterior proyecto Mesas y la necesidad de rendir 1 tributo a su padre, con el que ha compartido hobbies y apredizajes, así como el uso de recursos pictóricos, disciplina que desde siempre ha prácticado
De la navegación caótica y enmarañada de un plato entre las cuatro paredes del fregadero…. al navegar libremente sin obstáculos al fluir en el océano de las naves, trazando travesías de un puerto a otro”Isabel Tristan - PLATOS - proceso II -  Isabel Tristan – PLATOS - Processus II

et le bijou nait ….. il a l’air si simple, si évident …. mais il a fallu tout ce cheminement et que ce fassent ces entrecroisements ….
