COUP de COEUR ! Gloria CARLOS – hand forged jewelry

« I have been making work for over 30 years as a sculptor, this has directly influened and translated into my jewellery. Working primarily with iron and gold, I am interested in the disparity between their values; one has a connection with opulence, the other with industry. Each piece of my work is hand forged and incorporates traditional and experimental metal smith techniques. I work intuitively exploring sculptural forms to create wearable ornaments. » Gloria Carlos (at the Scottish Gallery)

la ROUILLE en majesté …..

Alexandra Chaney - 'tetanophobia 'Alexandra Chaney - ‘tetanophobia ‘

voir article   « Ode à la ROUILLE …. Marianne Anselin« 

« La matière qu’elle affectionne aujourd’hui, vielles cartouches, ressorts rouillés, la sécurise, même s’ils sont des déchets. Elle y voit de la beauté, voire de la préciosité, quand d’ordinaire il y a rejet. Sa timidité est dans l’air, c’est pourtant l’ambiguïté qu’elle cultive.
Éloignée des valeurs mercantiles de la joaillerie traditionnelle, Marianne place la préciosité et la rareté là où on ne les attend pas : « je les cherche dans la fragilité de la nature, dans l’action du temps en arrêtant la dégradation du fer rouillé, en utilisant des objets rebuts de notre société qui ne sont pas vides de sens mais porteurs de mémoire ». Là où certains voient imperfections, aspérités, couleurs fanées, elle perçoit comment le souffle du vent, le cliquetis de la pluie viennent à bout de l’airain, comment de l’artificiel la nature se réapproprie et fait son oeuvre. La matière est déjà en migration car « tous les éléments sont fluides. C’est une question de temps. C’est la courte durée de notre existence qui fait que nous appelons «dur» ou «mou» tel ou tel matériau. Le temps met à mal ces critères ». En intervenant, elle arrête un processus qui menait le métal à sa fin, fige l’action du temps sous la violence de sa forge et offre à porter une impalpable et pourtant bien réelle effigie du devenir, un souvenir magnifié.  “ » (Marianne ANSELIN)

Edgar Mosa – ‘Di Indigetes’ – rusted steel

« Relationships with time, space and objects were the focus of my attention during my time in Detroit, Michigan, USA. In an attempt to belong – as a bird makes its nest – I gathered materials that surrounded me; and searched for forms that could convey the struggle within.
Saw blades and rusty steel populated my studio, as vanitas on a still life. From them I created brooches that hung on the body like uncomfortable companions, burdens of a neglected past, that engaged a bittersweet relationship with the wearer. The pieces found their visual strength in the contrast between the delicate organic surfaces versus the sharp industrial edges » (

COUP de COEUR ! Catherine Clark GILBERTSON – NATURE

Classé dans : Catherine Clark GILBERTSON (UK),COUP DE COEUR,Grande-Bretagne (UK),metal — bijoucontemporain @ 0:27

« I use ancient metalsmithing techniques of chasing and repoussé to create jewelry and sculptural forms in precious metals that examines the origin of ornament. Starting with the decoration of architecture, sculpture and painting, this series of wearable sculptures is inspired by botanical specimens significant in the history of ornamentation such as acanthus leaves and sunflowers. Expanding on ideas of the wearable, my work examines interactions between the body and ornamentation of the body. However, instead of using these symbolically rich botanicals in miniature, as the basis of ornamenting a traditional form of jewelry, I have developed a life size form for my pieces firstly, from the plant itself–the original source of the centuries-old ornamentation—and secondly, from the shape it necessarily must take as a piece worn on the human body. .. » (Catherine Clark Gilbertson)

Simon COTTRELL – are we looking at small machines, or … animals ?

Classé dans : Australie (AU),Gal. Funaki (AU),metal,Simon COTTRELL (AU),www KitandCaboodle — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

I create objects that address their nature or utility only by achieving an honesty towards it. I often use shapes that present various allusions while never overtly depicting any single subject. These pieces are drawn from an attempt to embody two subtle paradoxes… the possibilities of a tenuous calm or of complex simplicities. The edges of simple forms are broken so that the defining outline is unclear; simple allusions to nature are broken by an obvious man-made production.(Simon Cottrell at Gallery Funaki)

Simon Cottrell - brooch ‘Five dimples two whites and a tail’ 2007 – Monel, stainless steel, plastic coating

« In recent work I am aiming to trigger various quiet yet resonant contradictions that blur our abilty to make clear sense of the things we see. There is both simplicity and complexity, static and growth, volume and lightness, randomness and order, monotone and dynamic, tension and calm, in the forms and structural details. Initially appearing quite austere, the more time we engage with each piece the less definitive they become. If there is a possibility of a clear line between my work being perceived as one way or another, I will often try to sit on that line. Exactly where that line lies however all depends on the attentiveness of the viewer. When we are presented with forms that are evocative of something familiar yet ambiguous, our curiosity is triggered and our visual engagement is lengthened…  it is never clear, are we looking at small machines or floral bouquets?… monsters or clouds?… plants or animals ? » (Simon Cottrell on NoovoEditions)

« What we might see as being ‘simple’ always has an underlying ‘complexity’. What we sense as being ‘calm’ is in actual fact, only a balance of ‘tensions’ at a level beneath our immediate perception. Our perception of things as being one way or another depends on the level of our sensory attentiveness.
The visual ‘simplicity’ of a single leaf contains a complexity within its moisture laden cellular structure. It could also be said that each singular cell is ‘simple’ in relation to the complex structure it lies within. And of course further again that singular cell has a deeper atomic complexity in relation to the singularity of the cell in itself.
Complex or simple…Calm or tense…Serious or playful…Ordered or random… Blurred or clear… Singular or multiple… Static or growing…Flat or with volume…Man-made or natural…
If there is a clear line between my work being one way or another, I will often try to sit on that line.
Exactly where that line lies however, all depends on the attentiveness of the viewer.
The degree of our sensory attentiveness of course plays a fundamental role in the human creative process.
It is sensory attentiveness that enables us to understand the nature of cause and effect within the production of material artifact. It allows us to absorb the delicacies of the methods used and the intricate details of their specific outcomes.
Every new physical manipulation of material, or thought about compositional elements is informed by a bank of previous insights which allows a kind of prediction as to what will happen, and sets up further questions as to the potentials for future possibilities.
By simply gaining more insight into the nature and manner of our pre-thought perception it gives greater clarity into how and what has been done and also to what may be done next within the creative process.
While my work is of course a direct embodiment of my own mental/physical processes, it is also devised as a metaphor for the inherent nature of the processes themselves.
Neither my work nor I will ever scream a definitive manifesto of our aims and intentions. I am not really attempting to tell you anything. I am simply materialising my view of the ‘nature of things’, which in turn is just giving you something to look at, and hopefully bringing you in closer.
Getting used to looking closely at small things, will always leads us to look even closer at larger things.

COUP de COEUR ! Emanuela DUCA – superbes SCORIES

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Emanuela DUCA (IT),Italie (IT),metal,www JewelleryScape — bijoucontemporain @ 0:42

De superbes textures, granuleuses et rugueuses, « brutes de décoffrage » : elle évoque elle-même le magma, les cendres volcaniques, les antiquités romaines -et leur rouille, leur oxydation-, le granulé du sable ….. et moi ce qui m’impressionne le plus c’est le contraste entre ces bijoux « sauvages », je dirais presque « masculins », des « bijoux de ferronnier », et les photos d’Emanuela Duca, à l’air on ne peut plus « blonde et douce » ! SUPERBE travail !
« In my most recent work, “Sand” and “Terra,” I revisit ancient Italian forms and reinterpret them with a modern sensibility. Sculpted in wax, then forged and constructed in sterling silver and 18K gold, the individual forms are highly textured, their surfaces evocative of volcanic ash and the ancient ruins of my native Rome. Yet their shape and combination is clean, simple, and minimal. Just the kind of contrast I aim to achieve in all my work. » (Emanuela DUCA)

Hanna HEDMAN (SE) – Grief and fragility made visible

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Hanna HEDMAN (SE),metal,Suede (SE) — bijoucontemporain @ 14:49

Hanna Hedman  (Suède) : sombre univers ! d’ailleurs une de ses expositions s’intitulait « Escape the day » (Galerie Platina, Stockholm, mars 2010) …. mais pas un univers triste, ou macabre, non, sombre parce qu’onirique, sorti du tréfonds des limbes du cerveau, des profondeurs d’un rêve, d’un univers parallèle, d’une résurgence d’un autre monde, d’une autre vie, d’un passé qui ressurgit parfois … les matériaux utilisés participent de cette « noirceur » :  métaux oxydés, noircis, grisés ……… et pourtant les photos se veulent « fraiches », « saines » : enfants blonds, personnes habillées de blanc, de face, « simples », juste « là »…… étrange monde !

 

Hanna HEDMAN (SE) - Grief and fragility made visible dans COUP DE COEUR www?ShowFile&image=m1269369123www?ShowFile&image=m1269369122 dans Hanna HEDMAN (SE)

« Hanna Hedman uses beauty to seize the viewers attention, but behind the attractive facade her jewellery deals with difficult subjects such as human vulnerability and underlying defence mechanisms. Her sculptural pieces, composed by thin layered silver sheets, are both delicate and strong. Equally beautiful as solemn.
In the exhibition we show jewellery from three series. Finding dark matter- is about fear of the dark, deriving from the idea that the universe consist of 95% dark matter. What you tell is not always what you experienced- inspired by the boundaries between truth and fiction. An exploration of imagination, with escapism as a comfort and survival strategy. Enough tears to cry for two- refers to historical mourning jewellery. Grief and fragility made visible, and a comment to a personal tragedy. » (Hnoss Gallery)

COUP de COEUR ! Andrea Janosik, silver & leather jewelry

Classé dans : Andrea JANOSIK (SK),COUP DE COEUR,cuir / leather,metal,Slovaquie (SK) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:16

Andrea Janosik, Slovaquian, is a graduate from Parsons School of Design & Eugene Lange College, New York, with a BA/BFA in product design/metals and creative writing. After graduating, she continued her education at the New York Studio School of Painting and Sculpture and the Lern Ort Studio, and later at the School of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf, Germany. Ms. Janosik has exhibited at “SOFA” in both New York and Chicago, and many other galleries And museums in the US and Germany. In 2008 she exhibited in a juried craft show at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.

 » Andrea Janosik has become a specialist in working with leather. Using a variety of leathers, including cords and flat pieces, she created very sculptural pieces. Many pieces are made rolling the leather into shapes, such as the cones in the necklace above, or other techniques of folding or bunching the leather. Her work is very laborious as she spends hours precisely cutting and shaping the leather pieces. »
