Eleanor BOLTON blues collection at COLLECT 2011 – 6-9 Mai 2011

Eleanor Bolton
« At Collect 2011 I will be launching my new Blues Collection of coiled cotton rope neckpieces. Using the same coiling and stitching technique I developed during my MA at the RCA, I have created a new collection of large-scale neckpieces exploring colour. The collection comprises of five new pieces each made up of sections of unbleached rope and different tones and shades of blue to highlight and emphasise the forms and process of the making. The unbleached rope with its contrasting yarn allows engagement with how the pieces have been made, as the stitching is revealed in the movement of the coils. The boldly dyed rope allows the material and process to become more ambiguous and the forms to become the main focus. »

Eleanor will be showing with Electrum Gallery

Decouverte : Melissa SCHMIDT – glass bubbles

Classé dans : ETSY.com,Melissa SCHMIDT (US),SHOP,USA,verre / glass — bijoucontemporain @ 0:08

Melissa Schmidt – will exhibit at the Smithsonian Craft show 2011

« The use of glass bubbles as a repetitious element drives the conceptual content of my work. The jewelry I create challenges perceptions of what glass can and can’t do. It appears fragile, but is surprisingly strong. The bubbles have movement and take on a sculptural form. Lamp-worked and annealed borosilicate glass bubbles with powdered colored glass, frit glass, silver nitrate, slide film, paper images, glass-texturizing and molding techniques.«

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. »

COUP de … ROUGE avec Niamh Spain

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Irlande (IRL),Niamh SPAIN (IRL),SHOP,www KitandCaboodle — bijoucontemporain @ 3:27

Niamh Spain (Ireland)

« The jewellery and wall pieces I have designed are an interpretative response to contemporary architecture. I am interested in identifying a particular viewpoint of a building and subsequently produce graphic drawings illustrating its inner and outer structural lines.
These 2-dimensional diagrams provide templates from which I produce 3-dimensional forms.  I am interested in testing the spatial boundary between the 2D and 3D, manipulating sheet into planar objects whilst never becoming fully volumetric.
Each piece relies on another for its outer silhouette as one sheet of metal produces at least three structures.  Positive space informs negative and vice versa. »

COUP de COEUR ! ‘FRAGILE’ by Mey & Boaz KAHN

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,ETSY.com,Israel (IL),Mey & Boaz KAHN (IL) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:33

« Mey and Boaz Kahn were born in Israel and live in Jerusalem. They met during their studies at Bezalel, Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem and got married after the second year. “Fragile” was the first project they were working on together.
The hammer hanged above the K in our logo, represents the value of work and creation. It is one of the first working tools. It also symbolizes an active attitude of the designer that brings cultural issues into the daily talk, we manufacture most of our products in-house in our studio and we develop them through a process that begins with a practical research with the materials.
Design, for us, is a field that lay on the border of art. We don’t believe that all of the products should be designed in purpose to make our life easier or more comfortable. We want our design to surround its users with stories and emotions, hope and fantasies, questions and ferry tales. We believe that good design must reveal cultural issues and ask questions about our way of living. »

http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.182891831.jpg

« This ceramic pendant looks like a closed tiny box when you buy it (pic no.5). After you snap it in the middle, you will discover a golden chain is pulling out of it. You wear it on the neck by connecting the two halfes using the magnet closer.
The Magnetic Necklace is part of a series called FRAGILE. each one of the products in this series must be broken by the user to become usefull. The first product of this series, FRAGILE Salt & Pepper Shaker won the 1st price of Designboom international competition among 4843 designers: http://www.designboom.com/contest/winner.php?contest_pk=21
When was the last time you emphatically broke something? FRAGILE Magnetic Necklace offers you the opportunity to do so!
Designed and made as a single piece, the FRAGILE Necklace requires the user to break it in order for it to be able to fulfill its functionality.
Breaking is an experience of impulsive outburst, but this time is an act that builds rather than destroys.
In a world of products whose shape is completely dictated by the designer, the FRAGILE Necklace enables the user to complete the design themselves. The act of breaking leaves its mark on the design giving it its final, unique, one-of-a-kind appearance. «

Loukia RICHARDS Textile Jewelry from Greece

Loukia Richards, Greek designer, is inspired by the  shapes, colors & motifs of traditionnal Greek embroidery.

« My jewellery is a game of inventing something precious in form and meaning from an unexpected material. I work with textile a material of sacred character in my hellenic heritage — the sacred character is evident both in the uses of the material in the ancient world as well as in the religious ceremonies of the present.
I am inspired by the shapes, colors and motifs of embroidery tradition of Greece, my mother’s country of origin. My recent work is inspired by the neolithic figurines and the cuneiforms of the cycladic civilization: white, simple, very basic. »

EXPO ‘Homeworks’ – Mint, London (UK) – 18-30 Sept. 2010 – during London Design Festival (LDF)

For this year’s London Design Festival (LDF), mint present “HomeWorks”: a selection of over 80 upcoming and established designers specially chosen for their individual and experimental craft touch.

HomeWorks Pt 5: Jewelry

Marta Mattsson is a UK graduate who is also participating in HomeWorks for LDF. Mattsson says that she sees beauty in things that other people find strange or are even repulsed by. Mattsson’s jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion.
Mattsson takes seemingly inappropriate materials, making ordinary and familiar objects seem extraordinary 
and unfamiliar.

Märta Mattsson – brooch ‘Atlas beetle’ 2010 – Copper electroformed Atlas beetle, cubic zirconias, lacquer, silver

« Somebody once told me,”You make jewellery for children, not for adults”. And when I was a student in Tokyo the Japanese students in my class came up with a new word to describe my work. The word was KimoKawaii and it’s a combination of two words kawaii (cute) and kimoi (disgusting).
I make jewellery for adults but with a touch of inspiration from my childhood. When I was a child I played with stuffed animals, slugs and other living animals. I have always been drawn to both biology and art and in my work I am trying to combine my interests. Nature is a great source of inspiration but so is Pokemon…«

« Rachel Colley is a UK graduate who is currently exhibiting at Mint for LDF. The methods Colley utilized within this body of work reference traditions in baking and the basic rustic knowledge that is passed effortlessly down the generations. »

 dans Moo PIYASOMBATKUL (UK)

« Colley’s intent was to instil a preciousness in the banal via its material transformation, as well as to utilise jewellery’s role as social signifier in order to challenge the public’s preconceived ideas of both the practice of craft and its aims. »

 dans Rachel COLLEY (UK)

« The use of modified roast beef, biscuits, blood, jelly and pie was intended to correspond to cultural crossovers between the classes. This material displacement encourages a response in the viewer, initiating a visual dialogue.  »

 

« Moo Piyasombatkul is also exhibiting at Mint as part of HomeWorks. Piyasombatkul believes that jewellery is body adornment that creates an impact and changes the way the wearer look. »

 dans SHOP

« The collection was inspired by “new antique” concept by Marcel Wanders. His theory is to give an old-fashioned material (vintage frame) with a dramatic and contemporary twist (monochrome white porcelain Baroque frame). The  eyewear collection creates something unique and memorable with sophisticated sensibility. »

 dans www Klimt02

Piyasombatku chose to work with porcelain because of its purity of white and also porcelain is truly fragile, which is representing luxury, clean and delicacy.
