EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Marion Lebouteiller – Beauté de l’éphémère, de l’incomplet, de l’imparfait

I « got the blues » with Marion Lebouteiller ……

« I am a French contemporary art jeweller who now lives and works in England. The pieces I make are born out of my fascination for materials and colours. My background as a chaser and patinateur on bronze sculptures influences deeply my approach to contemporary art jewellery.
Whilst combining silver and bronze I allude to the natural and the cultural worlds and highlight contrasts of colours, textures, concept of full and void… I am inspired by my surroundings and by the Japanese culture and the «Wabi-Sabi» philosophy: the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.
I like leaving space to the unexpected and tend to let the materials express by themselves, hoping to get the pure essence from them. Experimenting with lost wax casting and patinations processes allows me to materialise my sensitive perception of the world. » (ACJ Org.)

« Je suis une créatrice de bijoux française installée dans le sud de l’Angleterre. Mes créations sont impregnées de mon attrait pour la matière et les couleurs. Mon passé en tant que ciseleuse et patineur sur sculptures en bronze influence considérablement mon approche de la bijouterie contemporaine.
Je suggère les oppositions entre nature et culture, naturel et artificiel, sauvage et domestique et j’accentue les contrastes de couleurs, textures, matières…
Mon inspiration s’enrichit de mon environnement quotidien immédiat mais aussi de la culture japonaise et du “Wabi-Sabi”: soit la beauté de ce qui est éphémère, imparfait et incomplet.
Je laisse une place au hasard et aux imprévus, et je tends à laisser la matière s’exprimer par elle-même. J’utilise la technique de la fonte à la cire perdue mais aussi je cisèle, martèle, soude et patine le métal afin de concrétiser mes idées.

Toutes mes créations sont des pièces uniques ou des petites séries entièrement faites à la main et fabriquées en utilisant, autant que possible, des métaux recyclés ou Fairtrade, reflétant ainsi mes convictions de vivre sur cette planète en ayant un impact minimum sur l’environnement mais aussi sur la vie des mineurs.«

Selected 4 SCHMUCK 2016 : Josephine Winther

Congrats to all the artists who made the SCHMUCK 2016 list, on show at the Handwerksmesse  during #munichjewelleryweek  24/02–1/03/2016

Toujours des « petites choses », très légères, très aériennes, très poétiques, toujours accrochées, « pendant(e)s » …. avec toute une recherche « de sens » -basée sur les sens justement- qui leur donne néanmoins une présence certaine …….

Josephine Winther  Containment   Here the concept of containment means to enclose and to internalize, both in the physical sense but also as a conceptual idea of a space.: Josephine Winther – Containment – 2011 
« Here the concept of containment means to enclose and to internalize, both in the physical sense but also as a conceptual idea of a space.  The inspiration for the jewellery came from a girl I know. She was adopted from India at the age of seven and, in the first period after her arrival in Denmark, she would only wear clothes with pockets in them.  I found it thought-provoking that she should display her need for a personal space,a personal container,in this way and was intriqued by the fact that pockets could, to some extent, provide a solution for this need.  This led me to consider whether a need exists for a personal space which can be worn or carried on the body and whether this space can function as a mental refuge/sanctuary.
The jewellery contains a space* designed to be a “path” to (inner) calm and tranquillity – a space for meditation.

Josephine Winther, resonans  2011Josephine Winther, resonans  2011
  »Being touched by something is generating emotions, and these emotions are really a mixture of thoughts, bodily sensations and feelings. So the senses are part of emotions and sound is a very profound sensation as sound waves are felt different places in the body and they do generate sensations around the body if we pay attention to them.
I have tried to let a group of people listen carefully to the same sound an A from a tuning fork, and from that sound imagine, fell and construct a 3D figure in clay.  Each person was given the same amount of clay (2.4 gr)
Each 3D figure was then dipped in wax and cast in bronze, and the outcome was 51 sound objects/bells.
So the sound of a tuning fork was passed through the sense of hearing, through the imagination and onto the sense of touchingIn a way each person touched a sound while creating one, and later each person was happy to listen to their sound object/bell sound. I am not sure if they were touched by the sound, but I was touched by the experience of handing the sound back to each person.  And eventhough they all come from the same sound and process none of them sounds alike.«

Selection 4 SCHMUCK 2016 : Henriette Schuster

Classé dans : Allemagne (DE),COUP DE COEUR,Henriette SCHUSTER (DE),SCHMUCK / MJW (DE) — bijoucontemporain @ 18:51

Sur le FIL du bijou, avec Henriette Schuster (Germany)

Congrats to all the artists who made the SCHMUCK 2016 list, on show at the Handwerksmesse  during #munichjewelleryweek  24/02–1/03/2016

Working with silver and thread, Henriette’s jewellery is arrestingly simple and direct: small elements, often in pairs, sit in delicate balance with one another, a subtle dance of interdependence and connection.

Henriette Schuster http://www.henrietteschuster.com/c.php: Henriette Schuster

« Almost Invisible » : « Henriette Schuster is a quiet jeweler, and the title of her show at Gallery Funaki Almost Invisible is perfect. She makes simple pieces with delicate domestic references or pure abstractions. There is nothing big or boisterous about her or her work. It is just humble, quiet poetry.
Susan Cummins: Henriette, what is your story? What compelled you to become a jeweler, and what was your path to learning how to do it?
Henriette Schuster: I have known I wanted to be jeweler since the age of six or seven. My grandfather built pianos, and I used to watch him at work when he handmade the keys using ivory, ebony, felt, bone, glue, and shellac. He didn’t say much, but one day he handed me a pair of his working pliers and a piece of wire. It was here that I began making jewelry.
I went against my parents’ wishes by dropping out of my studies in architecture and following the recommendation of Hermann Jünger to take up training in gold- and silversmithing at the renowned Neugablonz Fachschule für Glas und Schmuck (Neugablonz College for Glass and Jewelry). After completing my degree, I was accepted into the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich as one of Otto Künzli’s first students in 1991. I graduated in 2000. Simultaneously, I have worked in my own studio in Munich since 1988.
Can you talk about what you took away from your studies at the Academy in Munich? Are you still connected to a strong community of jewelers  who studied there? Do you work on jewelry projects together? What is a recent example?
Henriette Schuster: My training in Neugablonz had provided me with the skills to be a gold- and silversmith. That training is not a requirement but a good basis for further studies at the Academy. Entering the Academy meant leaving behind the safe terrain of the trade, even the jewelry, and facing the adventure of becoming an artist.
Artists are often envied for their freedom to do what they please, to think and work freely, but dealing with this kind of freedom is quite a challenge, and I realized this very quickly. To me, it means: paying attention to every detail; taking work and looking at it from another perspective or from upside down; always starting again, and not giving up but knowing when to give up; and taking time to find your own dialogue with your work, believing in it, and always double-checking. Find and hide. See and be seen. Fear and be brave.
For the past 13 years, I have worked in my small studio where I also have a gallery space. Here, I exhibit the works of other artists, not always jewelry artists. It is here, during the Schmuck fair in Munich, that I am able to reach an international public and to invite colleagues such as Lisa Walker, Karl Fritsch, Helen Britton, David Bielander, Volker Atrops, and most recently Doris Betz.
What leads you to pick the objects you include in your jewelry, such as balloons, cups, and mittens? Have you begun doing more abstracted shapes recently? Why? Does jewelry reflect the nature of the person who made it? Does yours? How?
Henriette Schuster: My work has always had a personal reference. I find metaphors for my memories, experiences, observations, difficulties, hopes, and dreams. I’m interested in the relationship (co-existence) of two elements and the balance they strike, how they move and fit together. I also apply these considerations to abstract geometrical forms. The abstract form allows a more spontaneous and playful way of working. These two themes have been the basis of my work ever since my studies.
Your jewelry is almost invisible. These days, the big and ambitious seems to steal the limelight, so why do you persist in doing things that don’t draw attention?
Henriette Schuster: When I hear this question, I remember that as a child I used to play the piano in the basement, hoping that someone would hear me….
Almost Invisible is what I called my drawings, and Katie Scott suggested that this should be the title of my exhibition at Gallery Funaki. I look upon the large stage from a distance, and at times I’m jealous, but it drives me crazy and exhausts me to take part in a big performance. And I can wait. I love working on my own. This is probably not a wise career choice, and some people even think I’m arrogant. But I feel nervous when people from all over the world who know my work come to visit. Last year, a visitor commented, “I love your work. It’s so humble.” This really touched me. » (THANKS to AJF)

EXPO ‘Lisa & Scott Cylinder: Blinding the Cyclops’ – Gallery Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco (USA) – 8 Juill.-9 Aout 2015

Artist’s Reception: Friday, July 10, 6-8 pm

Lisa Scott Cylinder Blinding the Cyclops - Velvet da Vinci

San Francisco’s Velvet da Vinci is proud to present Lisa & Scott Cylinder: Blinding the Cyclops. The show will run from July 8 through August 7, 2015. An opening reception with the artists will take place on Friday, July 10, from 6-8 pm.
Husband and wife artist team Lisa & Scott Cylinder began collaborating in 1988, shortly after studying Jewelry/Metalsmithing at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Their long-term partnership has produced an ongoing series of one-of-a-kind sculptural jewelry, which often incorporates found objects and epoxy resins into their metalwork. Lisa & Scott Cylinder: Blinding the Cyclops will debut a new body of work by the duo, made by repurposing and altering parts from musical instruments, games, antiquated tools, and more. During a 2014 interview with Smithsonian.com, Lisa Cylinder described the inspiration for their process as follows:

Lisa & Scott Cylinder Cyclops Necklace, 2015, Bronze, sterling silver, nickle silver, vintage clarinet parts, epoxy resin, felt, stainless steel, 23ky gold leaf, paint, 3.5 x 2.5 x 1" pendant- 20" necklaceLisa & Scott Cylinder Cyclops Necklace, 2015, Bronze, sterling silver, nickle silver, vintage clarinet parts, epoxy resin, felt, stainless steel, 23ky gold leaf, paint, 3.5 x 2.5 x 1″ pendant- 20″ necklace

“It’s a soul thing… the things we use were touched by somebody. Once you see those pieces, you identify a moment in your life with that particular object. The tool that someone used in making something—there’s sweat on it, there’s toil on it. A musical instrument—someone played it. The human contact is part of what we do, and the reason we select the objects.

Blinding The Cyclops has been a new chapter in our artistic Odyssey. After 27 years of making representational work, we have charted a new course away from our comfort zone.   Representation had become our Cyclops, and in order to free ourselves we needed to escape from our captor.   This action has enabled us to grow, change, and challenge ourselves as artists and problem solvers in a tangential manner.
Although our fascination with found objects (especially musical instruments) continues, their use as materials has become further abstracted.   Their deconstruction has been pushed farther and the outcome is purposefully less representational.   We have reinvented our working methodology as well as our subject matter. This giant step has enabled us to develop a new vocabulary referencing Design and Technologies of the 20th Century, the time in which our aesthetics as makers were formed.
Blinding The Cyclops represents an epic creative adventure. Wielding the same techniques and materials from our past works, we have challenged ourselves to create a fresh group of wearable objects that subvert what had become familiar.   We continue to change and challenge ourselves in our quest to create intriguing, well-crafted hand made objects in the 21st Century.

EXPO ‘The After Joya effect – 6000 FRAGMENTS / THE FLOATING ISLANDS’ – Popeye Loves Olive, Athens (Greece) – 22 Mai-20 Juin 2015 dans Exposition/Exhibition - - X: « The after Joya Effect” * is an Exhibition that took place for the first time at Popeye loves Olive – Art Space, that aimed to the interaction and the transformation of individuality to collaboration, diversity to unification and exchange to sharing. It was inspired by the jewelry exchange inProject01 that held in Joya 2013. From 23/04/2014 – 30/06/2014, the project evolved in five solo exhibitions of Greek artists and one group exhibition of thirty five International artists. This year, every participating artist will create a unique (unreleased) piece, inspired by the “6000 Fragments – The Floating Islands” project. During the event, once again, the public will vote for their favorite artist, who will be invited for a solo exhibition at Popeye loves Olive. *The idea is to promote the Joya Project in Greece (artists selected by “Le Department” and exhibited in Joya Exhibition in October 2013 – 2014).
6000 Fragments / The Floating Islands :In Greece, there are 6,000 islands, islets and rocks. These holy seascapes connect spiritually, mentally and materially their inhabitants through the images that feed the senses.The second edition of “The after Joya effect” is inspired by the uniqueness of this physical experience in 6000 fragments.The Second Edition will be held between 22/05/15 – 20/06/2015.

Sketches of brown and blue with strokes of white candy. In an attempt to capture this scenery, I created my own island, something small to touch. Is it enough? I have a craving feeling to trigger the senses, so I cut it in smaller pieces. I need to play. I deconstruct my island and I recompose it differently. Again and again. And I travel. Continuously… »

Apparently, when we are old we lose 40 seconds at every 3 minutes that we perceive. My work is about the images that could have been seen, the sounds that could have been heard, the touch of the sand, the smell and taste of the sea that could have, but never was, felt in 40 seconds that were lost.

PS : in BLUE see the posts abouth their jewellery !

« This year the exhibition is characterized by innovative, very different works in glass, ceramics and jewellery as well as by a large selection of textiles. In addition to works that are inspired by nature – whether by plant forms or by the atmosphere and moods of the landscape – works are to be seen that are dealing with the city and try to translate its poetry and problems into a visual mode. The appeal of surfaces and the development of new techniques to enhance the range of possibilities resulted in very different works. Other topics are the definition and the meaning of home and country, problems of environmental protection and the relationship of new technical possibilities and traditional craftsmanship. The combination of various unusual ideas, of different conceptual and aesthetic approaches results in a very special and fascinating exhibition.
As in the last years, many applications arrived for Talente from the field of jewellery. The young artists show a special interest in the techniques and ideas of the collage. Impressive are the contributions of the students from Idar-Oberstein (Germany) working with and interpreting the material stone which results in very different works with diverse concerns but all of quite archaic character (Sharaeh Aghaei, Iran; Elvira Golombosi, Ukraine; Tala Yuan, China). The works deal with issues of homeland, strangeness and identity, the unconscious and magic forces being inherent to the objects as well as with the importance and the condition of civilization-creating elements in the present. All in all, this year again the general interest in the combination of different materials and for the connection of specially made parts and found objects is evident. These elements can be created into architecturally-style arrangements, extended into long tubes, combined with materials such as perspex glass or be gathered into subtle, poetic compositions. Besides the major inspiration from natural forms technical ideas play a significant rôle. Katie Collins (USA/Australia) for example works from steel collapsible necklaces and bracelets that present different stages and are inspired by machines. Unusual are Karin Gyllerfelt’s (Sweden) works in which photos of richly draped textiles are applied on metal surfaces causing a vexing trompe l’œil-effect. By means of technique and motifs she hints at the themes of transformation and transience. Jing Yang (China/Germany) deals in her « vases » not only with gender-based stereotypes of her native China, but also with the playful analysis of forms by dividing a vase shape into compartments reflecting in her pendants on the relationship of these parts.  » (Klimt02)

 

TALENTE is an international competition for young craftsmen and women in design and technology. This special show reflects the ideas of young people in the context of an experimental approach to materials and craft techniques. The best entries are awarded the highly sought-after TALENTE prize.

Young artist working in the applied arts and technology will have the opportunity to show their work in the international competition TALENTE 2015 in Munich, Germany from 11th to 17th March 2015. The aim of TALENTE is to promote young people with a particular manual talent and to show an interested audience the enormous potential which lies in the new generation in crafts and trades.

Amy Tavern, I Can Only Stay Away for So Long No. 1-7, 2014, Icelandic woolAmy Tavern, I Can Only Stay Away for So Long No. 1-7, 2014, Icelandic wool

I’ve been without a home by circumstance and by choice for several years. In 2012, I began traveling in the US and abroad for my work, rarely spending extended periods of time in any one location. This new lifestyle made me realize I don’t know where I want to live, and I find myself searching for this seemingly elusive place today. While I am content to be without a home, I long for that one place where I feel most myself, a place where I want to stay. In an effort to find what I’m looking for, I was compelled to define and redefine home through research, writing and object making, as well as examining my past, my present and my future. 
Over the past year, I have explored ideas of home in three distinctive places. Arriving in Iceland for the first time, I felt attune with myself and with my surroundings in a way I had never felt before. The pieces I made in a two-month residency there illustrate feelings of belonging and of being found. In my childhood home in New York, I reflected on my relationships with my family as well as relationships with the places I’ve lived in the United States. The foundation of my artistic sources and countless other details were revealed as I considered individual people and locations. Further, through all the places I have traveled, I have become keenly aware of my ability to find home in the unknown. In all of these places, Iceland, the US and countries abroad, I examined memories and focused on things that carry emotional weight. I also relied on the language of jewelry, looking to a variety of historical forms for guidance. 
“I Live Here Now” represents what home means to me as well as the memories and emotions associated with the different places that are a part of my collective home. Jewelry, objects, text, photographs, ritual, arrangements and installation serve to demonstrate my ideas and to establish a unique narrative. Ultimately, I know my home is the place where I am truly myself, and, essentially, I know now that I don’t need a physical location to call home; my home is me and it is wherever I am. – - Amy Tavern, 2014

EXPO ‘RULE THE WORLD’ – Friends of Carlotta, Zurich (CH) – 19 Juin-5 Sept. 2014

RULE THE WORLD, a juried exhibition at Friends of Carlotta in Zurich, Switzerland, curated by Bruna Hauert.

Welcome to our world of lived-out deficiencies and psychopaths!

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional ? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through ? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge ?

Rule the World

Despoten sind – bei aller Einfalt – ein sehr facettenreiches Trüppchen. Sie wollen nicht nur geliebt werden. Nein, sie wollen ehrlich und echt geliebt werden. Notfalls mit Gewalt.
Doch: Womit schmücken sich DiktatorInnen, Grössenwahnsinnige, Möchtegerns und Trauminöds? Womit präsentieren sie sich, damit ihre wahre Persönlichkeit im richtigen Licht erstrahlt? Womit zeigen GrosskotzInnen, TyrannInnen und zu Höherem Berufene, dass die Macht mit ihnen ist? Besitzt der Mächtige Objekte der Macht weil er mächtig ist? Oder ist er mächtig, weil er Objekte von magischer Macht besitzt?
Und: Was gönnt der Despot sich selbst in einer launigen Minute? Welcher Schmuck feiert mit ihm in der Stunde seines Triumphes? Womit verwöhnt er seine Untertanen, damit sie sich ihm leichter unter tun? Und wie kann ich ihm huldigen, damit er meine wahre Liebe und somit seinen wahren Wert erkennt?
Diese und andere Fragen zum Thema RULE THE WORLD beherrschen das Thema der nächsten jurierten Schmuckausstellung bei Friends of Carlotta.
Willkommen in der Welt der gelebten Defizite und der Psychopathen in Bestform!
Ich freue mich auf die Pracht der Macht und darauf, Sie an der Vernissage vom 19. Juni 2014 ab 17h begrüssen zu dürfen. Oder an jedem anderen Tag während der Ausstellung. Herzlich  Bruna Hauert

Despite their simple-mindedness, despots are a very diverse little group. All they want is
to be loved. Or rather, they want honest and real love. By force, if need be.
However, what do dictators, megalomaniacs, wannabes and the delusioned adorn themselves with? What do they use to cast their personalities in a positive light? What do fat cats, tyrants and those destined for greater things use to demonstrate that the force is with them? Do the powerful own objects of power because they are powerful? Or are they powerful because they own objects with magic powers?
What’s more: What do despots treat themselves to when they’re in a foul mood? Which pieces of jewellery are there to share the hours of victory with them? What do they spoil their subjects with in order to make them more eager to subdue themselves? And how must I worship these despots so that they recognise my pure love and therefore their true value?
These and other questions on how to RULE THE WORLD will be the dictating subject of the
next juried jewellery exhibition at Friends of Carlotta.

The obscenely over sized piece did not hang like a pendant. It framed her face and seemed to cradle her body. It required a formal posture and bearing that teased out an air of decorum she was not always prone to pulling off. A hybridization of legume, embryo, and organ, the piece could not be more ripe. It‘s glossy surface, and speckled edges felt less like a thing made than a thing born. To the starving masses it was a promise of fertility, but to her enemies it was a reminder that she might gut them at amoment‘s notice

« Jewelry to live every deficiency to the fullest extent. I choose to use a female and a male despot, creating two characters and two scenarios. They both compete for power, adoration, attention and they use the same weapons: the Penis, a symbol of power and dominance. My characters have a lot of insecurities for which they have to overcompensate with decoration and dubious behavior. The Penis becomes a symbol of desire and the despots see it as the object of their desire. The Penis becomes a cult object. Queen of all queens carries around a small wooden Penis pendant as a symbol of her dominance over men. It looks modest, unimportant and not too cared for. It is a trophy.
King of all kings carries around a wooden Penis to show he is the biggest, strongest and most precious of all. The piece is carved out of balsa wood and carefully finished. The piece is really easily imprinted if one doesn’t handle it with care, just like the King’s ego. The way it is worn, as a brooch on the shoulder, is disturbing for the wearer as well as for the viewer. »
