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.

 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.

EXPO ‘IRREVERSIBLE’ – Popeye loves Olive gallery, Athens (GR) – 2-16 Dec. 2016

Raluca Buzura Solo Exhibition

IRREVERSIBLE
*impossible to return to a previous condition

 Opening: 02 December at 19.00
 Raluca Buzura Solo Exhibition
Popeye Loves Olive – Art Space presents, for the first time in Greece the Romanian jewelry artist Raluca Buzura. Using porcelain as a medium, the artist is creating three-dimensional jewelry, combining the organic forms with the elements of nature. 

   Raluca Buzura Solo Exhibition « IRREVERSIBLE

*impossible to return to a previous condition
Each human being lives for himself and takes his own actions, but as soon as he does it, this action, committed at a certain moment in time becomes irreversible and makes itself a part of the history. Therefore, my whole work defines the irreversibility of the actions I chose to take and of the material itself: once acquired a certain shape, at the end of the process, it cannot go backward, it becomes permanent. »
Nothing we do is inevitable, but everything we do is irreversible” -Joy Williams

About the artist:
———————————–
I attended the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, department ceramic-glass-metal, and then, from 2007,
I followed master in the same section.
During the studies, my works were in the installation area, participating in various projects and exhibitions. Since 2009, main focus becomes contemporary jewelry design.
My interest in jewelry may also come from the fact that this area has not been given much attention. Frequently, people use to see it only as an over plus brought to the human body, that has a value depending on the material used. Therefore, it was also a challenge to change viewer’s angle and to reveal an alternative, and more precisely that jewelry can be considered a work of art in its own right, having an artistic understanding, concept and message that can cover a wide range of fields. I continued to work by maintaining a preference for ceramic materials, due to the transformation of the material from one state to another: once acquired a certain shape, it can’t return to what it was before.
I like to combine seemingly fragile ceramic material with metal hardness or the warmth of a fabric, then to submit the form to compositional experiments that create the most expressive side of my creations. My work is a translation in porcelain of my personal experiences, trying to obliterate these traces during the process by simplifying the boundaries between real and abstract, in a swirl of colors and lines waterfalls from which are foreseen flashes of gold. The result of these experiences I like to think that is a legacy, a proof of my existence that reflects on the society, making it if not better, at least more beautiful and trying to rekindle the gap between public and art, by presenting a variety of aesthetic shapes and ideas that could remove it from the serial area.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Dora HARALAMBAKI – « coup de coeur » forever !

Ceramic jewellery Dora Haralambaki

She is part of « Pilino soma » , Ceramic Jewelers Association -Greece. Pilinosoma is a group, a community made up of people involved in the ceramic jewelry. We think, we feel, we gesture always driven from our material which is none other than the earth, clay and porcelain. We seek the composition that contributes the harmony of the fragility of the clay component, made ornament as resting on the body. We are fighting for its place in the world of contemporary art jewelry.

I could say I love ALL what Dora Haralambaki makes …. since I know her …. I could show you here latest works, presented at last JOYA 2015, her « EGGS NOT FED » serie, but when I « rhink Dora Haralambaki », my first « vision » id a red & white vision ……. so let’s have a « first vision » here  :-) ……

« Refugees; away from their country, away from their home. Fear, persecution, uprooting.
And then an attempt of integration in a society hostile towards the foreign body. An attempt to maintain individuality and a distinct culture through habits, tastes, aromas, mannerisms which are getting attached to the different circumstances of the new land.
Attachments that are being carried as luggage to serve the need of memory; attachments that contribute to the continuation of flow, as well as to the assimilation within this new life. »

 « LACUNA is a space between elementsA quiet elongation between one musical note to the next – A gap in the text that leaves room for imagination  –          I’d like to invite you into a world of intrigue and imagination. In this world, I see my jewels as unique 3D objects, each containing the shell of an element that once existed … and now in its place, the lacuna – just a memory of what once was.   The unique shapes of my designs were formed as if I removed a “frozen moment” froma step in the design process. Space remains between the material that originally was and the shape that came to be. With your imagination, this space allows a glimpse into the elements that were whisked away and hidden during this intriguing “frozen moment”.  In each collection I use a variety of techniques and technologies, which give expression to the concept of my designs.  I meticulously add textures, colors and finishes to the 3d prints and casted jewelry, so that the surface and interior spaces are decorated by the small details.   My name is Yafit Ben Meshulam. I’m a jewelry designer, maker and metal smith working and living in  Tel Aviv, Israel. I earned a B.DES degree in jewelry design from the distinguished Shenkar College of engineering and design in Tel Aviv.  Thanks for letting me share my passion with you «

« Does jewelry within a specific collection have to be similar to one another? Further, is it possible to create an eclectic collection b ased on the same fundamental principles, or in other words D.N.A., of the jewelry’s design elements?
In creating a collection, designers sometimes realize upon reviewing their work that his or her project has another connection that wasn’t consciously created. In this project I decided to make this unknown, secondary connection the leading topic of my collection.
Throughout my process, every item b egan as an intuitive idea which was formulated independently into its correct form b ased on the materials and technology used. The connection between the items is revealed in the end; when all the pieces appear together. In my case, the connection that was discovered was measurements. Each piece emphasizes measurement in different ways; and together they appear as eclectic collection.
However, the result of this semi-blind process brings to the forefront an age old question: What makes a collection cohesive; is it materials? technology? shape? or is it the hand of the designer which gives a collection unity? »

Through gestural movements, the artists of ceramic jewelry display the material as a mean of expression and show the compatibility of the clay with the human body.
Achieve to imprint primordial memories: fragments and traces of historical and personal memory of each artist which lead in geometric forms, as if stepped on the frame of an architectural project. Or on the frame of the human figure, allowing many interpretations of semantic terms.

They aim to unite their work and ideas and travel them showing and analyzing them through exhibitions and exchange of information. (Dora Haralambaki – Anastasia Gemeliari – Agapi Simpokou and, before, Iryna Voitenko)

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Pilar COTTER attachante

Pilar COTTER

One of her series’ work I loved so much was « Des-nudo« , some knots done in/with the ceramic, as if to remember something …..

Pilar Cotter  est si discrète dans son travail, difficile de trouver de l’information !
ces noeuds faits à ses broches, comme pour ne pas oublier …. je n’ai pas oublié ! « RE-CUERDA » : rappelle toi ! ou « à propos de corde », avec souvent une empreinte textile, faisant croire à un morceau de toile, ou de corde, faisant douter du matériau utilisé …. Elle fait visiblement beaucoup de workshops, d’ateliers, donne des conférences …..

 « Como otros creadores mis intenciones en la joyería a veces son sencillas, la búsqueda de la belleza en un sentido profundo. Hacer que el objeto dialogue con aspectos del valor, apoyado en otros factores que en la actualidad parecen volatilizarse. Piezas hechas con tiempo, un tiempo humano y cargadas de humanidad, que intentan hablar de la minuciosidad de este mundo de la joya, hablar de las cosas pensadas hasta encontrar ese punto donde todo se armoniza. » (Context Gal.)

 Pilar Cotter:

« Des-nudo »

  »Musings about transit in communication.
I understand transit as the distance allowed to an emitter between thought and verb, this fictitious hallway where thoughts are filtered, will always be affected by the emotional context enveloping the emitter.
I suppose there are no fixed formulas to activate or facilitate the sorting of this series of emotional complexities which will give rise to either contention or fluidity. Words such as baring or untying come to my head from the collective imaginarium. Words directly related to comunication. Baring implies an act of transparency, untying, the decision to overcome any conflict to transmit what one wishes.  This is how we tie and untie, show and hide, this is how we retain and let go.«

« The beginnings of her works are related to human nature: “I start from sensations or conversations, sometimes some event motivates me to begin with the innocence of not really knowing where I’m going and, little by little, I become aware of the process.”Pilar mainly uses porcelain.  “I know that at some moment I will have to dialogue with other materials, but I’m fascinated understanding porcelain, its appearance, its strength and fragility at the same time, and its extreme subtlety.”
Sometimes Pilar Cotter’s work moves away from jewelry, when she uses other resources such as photography or installation to express herself, for example in her latest work titled DES-NUDO, in which from the word itself she raises questions about communication. She is very interested in seeing things done with technological media and refers to the works of the Canadian artist and architect Philip Beesley. » (blog.mardecolorrosa 2012)

«  I’m a jewellery designer born in Germany (1963), living and working in Brussels for the last 20 years. I have a Master of arts degree in History and a diploma of art jewellery design. Over the past years. I have been working as a teacher and as an independent jewellery designer. In 2015, I co – founded  “s t u d i o  F16 ”, a multidisciplinary art collective.
Designing and creating jewellery has been my passion since childhood, but life took me in other directions and it was only after having a child that I found my way back to jewellery design. Next to contemporary jewellery, it is graphic design and ceramics that make my heart beat faster. In my latest collection I have combined these three disciplines – a challenging but fascinating adventure. I like to experiment and to explore new materials and techniques.
A few years ago, I 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 my jewellery collections.

I am attracted by the translucent white colour, the fragile appearance with a surprisingly solid character and the almost sensual texture of unglazed porcelain. By integrating different materials such as 3D printed ornaments and digital designed images into handcrafted porcelain creations, I translate traditional jewellery concepts into contemporary pieces.
To me, every collection is a new journey and I love to get lost in a jungle of untrodden paths on the way to creating something new. »   Ute van der Plaats
