Mary DONALD  exhibits at the Smithsonian Craft Show 2011

« My connection to the natural world has not only inspired my visual vocabulary with it’s beautiful forms, textures, patterns and colors, but has also stimulated me conceptually. I began experimenting with organic, discarded and surplus materials several years ago for a project and continue to be motivated by my discoveries. The unconventional materials and processes keep it fresh and interesting for me. I mix it up with a little gold, silver and other metals to make unique, wearable sculpture.  »

BLACK is BEAUTIFUL – Kathleen NOWAK TUCCI rubber jewelry

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Kathleen NOWAK TUCCI (US),plastiques,recup' / recycled,SHOP,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 16:41

Kathleen NOWAK TUCCI  (discovered at The Smithsonian Craft Show 2011) :
« I have always made my work in components- smaller parts of a whole work. With my rubber jewelry, it may be long triangular pieces, that I call shreds, that eventually are assembled to create to become a necklace. Strips of inner tubes wait to be connected together along with other shapes, circles triangles or flowers . I like to have many parts pre-cut out ready for whatever combination strikes my fancy.
I have always liked C and S curves juxtaposed against geometric shapes such as squares, circles and triangles. I feel a strongly influenced by art-deco furniture, architecture and fashion.
Working with the raw material of recycled rubber allows me to make dramatic pieces with very little weight. »

EXPO ‘Barbara Uderzo: Blob Rings’ – Macef Milano (Italy) – 27-30 Janv. 2011

Classé dans : Barbara UDERZO (IT),Exposition/Exhibition,Italie (IT),plastiques,rings,www Klimt02 — bijoucontemporain @ 18:11

Blob rings are made in silver and coloured plastics and incorporate symbolic micro-objects from contemporary life. Barbara works the magmatic and coloured plastics in an experimental way, recreating casual shapes around a silver ring. During the years Barbara Uderzo has created small “families” of Blob rings on specific themes, such as Blob rings food, with food material and kitchen tools; jewels with slices of cakes, small cups or teapots, small coffeepots or sweets, all dipped in cream or in a translucent glass. 
*The collection’s name comes from the title of a science fiction cult movie of the Fifties, “The Blob”, whose main character is a strawberry-like jelly which invades the Earth and swallows everything and everyone it finds on its way.

EXPO Barbara Uderzo Blob Rings

I Blob rings sono realizzati in plastica e inglobano micro-oggetti simbolici della contemporaneità. La plastica, magma e colore, è lavorata in modo sperimentale, rielaborando forme casuali attorno ad un cerchio in argento. Nel corso degli anni Barbara Uderzo ha creato piccole “famiglie” di anelli Blob su argomenti specifici, come ad esempio i Blob rings food, relativi al cibo ed agli oggetti di cucina, quelli con fette di torte, tazzine o teiere, caffettiere o bonbon, immersi nella panna o in traslucide glasse.
*Il titolo della collezione, viene da quel film degli anni ’50 divenuto un culto per gli amanti della fantascienza: “Blob, il fluido che uccide”; protagonista del film è infatti una gelatina color fragola che invade la Terra e inghiotte qualsiasi cosa o persona capiti sulla sua strada.

COUP de COEUR ! Sayumi YOKOUCHI et ses « petits mondes »

Sayumi Yokouchi was born in Tokyo, Japan and now lives in Brooklyn, New York where she maintains her studio. Sayumi began her studies in jewelry at Cabrillo college in Santa Cruz, California. She received her MFA with honors from SUNY New Paltz, and BFA from California College of The Arts. She has participated in many galleries and museum exhibitions nationally and internationally. She has taught and lectured as visiting artists at many places, currently teaches at the 92nd street Y in New York city. (Sienna gallery)

« My jewelry is a place of discovery; a reflection of the world in which I inhabit and my material of choices are response to my daily experiences and common belongings in the community. I’m curious about the way we adapt common objects in the domestic environment and how the objects become precious and memorable in our life experiences. I am fascinated by inherent transformative qualities of seemingly banal and common place objects, and isolating the moment when materials progress from their original form into something more beautiful and precious.«

Sayumi Yokouchi- Kyohanabi Brooch

« I find beauty in industrial materials, and posses a fascination for using them when making a piece of jewelry. Being born and raised in the big city of Tokyo Japan, and now living in New York City, I’ve come to see urban life as a kind of landscape resembling an enormous field of flowers where the natural and unnatural grow and live together. New buildings appear in the place of old ones and people continually come and go, much like new flowers coming into bloom season after season.
New life becomes old quickly in the urban environment. Old to new, new to old — echoed everywhere from computer systems, to houses, mone ìy, fashion trends and even personal relationships; all of which perpetuate the continuous and vast urban cycle.
In this respect, I see my jewelry as an empty field, wherein I plant my own kind of flowers and create my own form of urban nature within the field. My flowers are blooming one by one, always metaphorically contrasting the synthetic (urban) and precious (country). My material choices are my responses to the world I inhabit, and ornamentation is a result of my purest desire.
My approach to work is an endless experimentation with materials and process. I search for a boundary-free territory within the field of jewelry making, and thus, I find a great deal of pleasure when I find myself deeply connected to my chosen materials.«

EXPO ‘Daniel Von Weinberger : Plastique c’est chic’ – Site du Grand-Hornu , Belgique – 28 mai-29 Oct. 2010

PROLONGATION jusqu’au 29 octobre 2010

Enfant, Daniel Von Weinberger s’extasiait déjà devant les vitrines des bijouteries du « Meir » à Anvers, ville dont il est originaire. De là provient sa passion pour la création de bijoux, passion qui s’ajoute à un intérêt pour bien d’autres disciplines : le théâtre (décors et costumes), la mode, la sculpture, le design, … « L’art, l’art appliqué, la mode, le bijou de mode, le design, tout se rejoint » selon lui.
Daniel Von Weinberger peut paraître une personnalité paradoxale : juif religieux, père de dix enfants et en même temps artiste extravagant. Et pourtant, il concilie ces apparentes contradictions avec brio ; pour lui, tout est cohérent.

EXPO 'Daniel Von Weinberger : Plastique c'est chic' - Site du Grand-Hornu , Belgique - 28 mai-29 Oct. 2010  dans Belgique (BE) noiretrouge

Né en 1950, il étudie l’orfèvrerie, le décor et costume de théâtre à l’Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts d’Anvers. Il apprend les techniques d’émaillage à la Bazalel Académie de Jérusalem et revient ensuite étudier la sculpture à Anvers. Ayant vécu une jeunesse assez contestataire et provocatrice, il choisit, vers l’âge de trente ans, de se tourner vers le judaïsme religieux. Il porte la barbe et les attributs des hassidim et se rend chaque jour à la synagogue. Mais être religieux ne l’empêche pas d’être ouvert sur le monde et d’être excentrique voire subversif dans ses créations. Il réalise des assemblages surprenants alliant des matériaux très hétérogènes, tout en contrastes : or et déchet, ivoire et plastique, etc. Le créateur collectionne les objets les plus divers (petites jouets en plastique – son matériau de prédilection –, photographies de personnages célèbres, …) qu’il recycle et utilise avec une fantaisie sans bornes pour former des bijoux qui peuvent fonctionner comme des sculptures portables.

En récupérant des objets trouvés, il se positionne ainsi face à une société de consommation en surproduction. Ces matériaux pauvres, il souhaite les « élever » vers le spirituel. C’est en cela que sa pratique n’est pas si contradictoire qu’elle n’y paraît au premier abord.
 
Aujourd’hui, il est un créateur de bijoux reconnu internationalement. Il enseigne à l’Académie de Berchem en art du bijou et tente de transmettre à ses élèves sa passion pour l’art mais aussi pour la vie. Son credo étant : « L’art c’est la vie et la vie est un art ».
 
L’exposition rétrospective au Grand-Hornu, « Plastique c’est chic », surprendra avec les créations pleines d’humour de ce personnage si singulier, qui accueille également des pièces de créateurs amis, tels que Jean-Paul Knott, Ann Demeulemeester …

EXPO ‘The Plastic Show’, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco (US) – 1er-31 Oct. 2010

 ‘The Plastic Show’, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco

The Plastic Show  (click to see more about this show)
(Rebecca Hannon earrings- ‘Modular Multi-Color’ – Formica, sterling silver)

 

 ‘The Plastic Show’, an exhibition featuring work from the recently published Lark Jewelry Book 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs. The Plastic Show features 250 pieces by 75 artists employing a variety of plastic materials such as resin, latex, rubber, epoxy, and thermoplastics, many of which are reused or recycled. Having been embraced by artists and designers, these materials are now firmly woven into the language of contemporary jewelry making. Used alone or in combination with traditional elements, these substances can, with certainty, be classified as precious. Thanks to the use of plastics, conventional components like silver, gold, platinum, and gemstones are now only part of the jewelry-making equation. The jewelry in this collection represents the best work being produced today by artists who use plastics as a foundational element in their pieces.

En bonne « fille des années 60-70″ je voue un amour inconsidéré au plastique ! Il faut dire aussi qu’un événemant particulier de ma vie a grandement joué en ce sens : petite, vivant à Thessalonique (nord de la Grèce), on y subissait de nombreux tremblements de terre. L’un d’eux a déclenché un gigantesque incendie où ma famille a TOUT perdu. Mon ère a pleuré son Toulouse-Lautrec, moi mon nounours, et ma mère son argenterie qui a entièrement fondu …. MAIS …. les pompiers nous ont remis ce qui a vait été sauvé : la VAISSELLE en PLASTIQUE, rangée dans le placard au-dessus de l’évier, près du réservoir d’eau ……… c’était le premier signe ! ensuite, remeublement oblige, mes parents se sont entièrement remeublés en « design tout plastique » : sièges en ABS de Guy Paulin, tables plastique de Vico Magistretti chez Artemide, et toute « l’invasion » de plastique orange des années 68 (vous visualisez ? la balance terraillon en plastique orange ? le tourne-disque Phillips mallette-portable-ouvrable ? les miroirs à bords arrondis de chez Artemide ?  les tables de nuit de chez Kartell ??? ) ………et voilà ! j’AIME le plastique !! :-) ses infinies possibilités de formes, ses couleurs « décapantes », son humeur joyeuse  ……….. bon, d’accord, il n’est pas écologique DU TOUT et, parait-il, rend stérile ….. mais … ça me réjouit et me met en joie ! :-)

Sharon Vaizer is a 2009 Graduate of the Jewelry Design Department of Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
Sharon’s work is influenced by the marine environment, which is characterized by incessant motion, and amorphous shapes that emerge from a multitude of moving elements and coalesce into a single whole. I just love the way she used cheap and ready made materials and transformed those basic objects into precious ones

« My work is influenced by the marine environment, which is characterized by incessant motion, and amorphous shapes that emerge from a multitude of moving elements and coalesce into a single whole.
I made use of cheap, readily available and recyclable materials – such as the simple plastic bag which has become an icon for recycling issues in Israel -  manipulating and multiplying them to test their stylistic flexibility, trying to transform base objects into precious ones, the mundane into the unexpected, common into rare.
The project consists of: a collection of inflatable swimwear – each item of which is handmade and unique; a tank-top shirt and handbag, both made of plastic bags and set with Swarovski stones; a hat, a shoulder ornament and plastic bracelets, all inspired by sea creatures, made of plastic cable-ties, shrink tubing and clothing-tag ties, and set with Swarovski stones.  Materials: ready-made industrial plastic and rubber parts, plastic bags, shrink tubing, cable-ties, brass and Swarovski stones. »
