 CRUSHED by Andra Lupu, Romania - AUTOR 2017CRUSHED by Andra Oana Lupu, Romania
« A celebration of fragility, life and feelings in a beautiful brooch.
”Crushed is what you feel when something beautiful is ending, crushed is how you feel when you lose someone dear. But every ending is a new beginning, it’s up to you how you start over, or whether if you take the good or the bad of every experience. In my new collection, I use thin layers of « crushed » melted silver, to create a jewelry as a metaphor to the fragility of life, relationships, feelings”. »
 Tubular Collection by Ana Pina, Portugal - AUTOR 2017Tubular Collection by Ana Pina, Portugal
« Ana’s jewelries celebrate multiple possibilities using geometrical wiseness. To infinity and back!
”The Tubular Collection combines round wires and tubes in a subtle way, creating both minimalist and statement pieces that aim to celebrate pure geometric lines and its multiple possibilities of combination. The rationality of orthogonal alignments is challenged by the mutable character of movement and by the seeming idea that the connections between the different elements are fragile and unpredictable, which accentuates the sense that any combination is possible – from the simplest isolated element to infinity” »
16psyche Collection by Anna Börcsök, Hungary  16psyche Collection by Anna Börcsök,  Hungary 
« Can a jewelry collection be an exclamation sign? Anna’s answer is yes.
”The jewelry and the wearer should be inseparable. Without them we are naked and helpless. These pieces are fractal based Armours and they determinate the movement and actions of the wearer’s position. I was studying the Ancient societies and examining the current social models to get a predictable image of the future. The collection is an exclamation point, an invitation to face our own limitations”. »
Second Shape by Giulia Boccafogli fashion jewelry, Italy - AUTOR 2017Second Shape by Giulia Boccafogli fashion jewelry, Italy
« The forgotten becomes unforgettable.
”Second Shape is a second chance for the material to be used in a different way and also a second chance for my jewelry to become something different: an ornament or almost a dress. I like the idea that a ruin could be such a great source of beauty and this is the reason why I tried to explore a different way to work the “forgotten” leather: a super clean and modern material that can be worked in an apparent rough way” »
Night Writing by Letiția Pintlie, RomâniaNight Writing by Letitia Pintilie, România
« The sensory jewelry.
”Vision, our dominant sense, allows us to perceive the world through images, motion and colour. We use the information received from it to recognise and interact with objects and environments, interpret spatial cues. When impaired, one way of assisting it is by supplementing information through other means, like tactile. I translated this into the collection by constructing the pieces on elements that address both the vision and the touch” »

 Necklace series by Magali Thibault Gobeil Joaillière, CanadaNecklace series by Magali Thibault Gobeil Joaillière, Canada
«  »SOMEBODY GOT CRAZY WITH THE CANDY MACHINE »
Lost in my imaginary world where everything is so delightful. That little place inside myself where everything is calm, joyful and pretty. Where my mind goes when everything is so hard outside, in the real world. These crazy forms of nature made from artificial materials are the result of that retreating into that special world that protects myself from not going crazy in the real world. They touch all our senses. We want to eat them as if they were candies, to touch them because of their appearance so smooth, spongy and colourful We all need that little break to full our body with a bit of joy. »"
AUTOR 2017 Sandra Tepla Jewellery, Czech Republic: Atomic Visions by Sandra Tepla Jewellery, Czech Republic
« Jewelry stand for a vision of future.
”Atomic Visions: Human Impulse is about futuristic textile structures, exploring empowerment/dominance in a pre-apocalyptic ‘rise before the fall’. My infatuation with textile cord has enabled me to create large scale work of colours previously unknown to me. It is this ‘WHY NOT?’ attitude that does the trick; often producing the most striking creations” »
 About Colour/ (Im)movable Collection by Konstanze Prechtl, Austria - AUTOR 2017About Colour/ (Im)movable Collection by Konstanze Prechtl, Austria
« Colour sets us free
« I use a range of colours derived from my personal life and surroundings which are applied in different ways to various materials. Depending on the line of sight, the viewer and wearer discover different colour schemes. The series “(Im)movable” reflects on Movement and Restraint – Freedom and Restriction. Although each joint is movable, they are restricting and limiting each other”. »
 REflections Collection by Kapka Jewelry, Macedonia  - AUTOR 2017REflections Collection by Jana Acevska/Kapka Jewelry, Macedonia
« Jewelry speaks for today.
“Jewels as reflection of our internality are containing stories of the present, but also past, transmitted through generations. Relating the traditional with the contemporary is an endeavour to generate new stories, unique and specific, which is the idea behind the Reflections, new KAPKA jewelry collection”. »
 Lamella Collection by Veronika Fazekas, Hungary - Playing with magic. - AUTOR 2017Lamella Collection by Veronika Fazekas, Hungary - Playing with magic. - AUTOR 2017
 Lamella Collection by Veronika Fazekas, Hungary – Playing with magic.
« With these pieces my aim was to make a setting in a ’magical way’, using optical illusion and the help of the light. To see the settled lens, you need light which reflects it into your eyes. I could reach this with the help of lamellar structures.” »
Identity by Franziska Höhne, Germany - A non-gender jewelry.Identity by Franziska Höhne, Germany – A non-gender jewelry.
« ”The collection sharpens the senses to become more sensitive in dealing with each other. It encourages thinking beyond simple categories so everyone can become aware of their own identity and develop it freely without constant external conditioning. There are no obvious gender markers in the collection. Each person can decide for themselves how the jewelry is worn, giving hints of one‘s own identity or masking it” »
Colorful Emptiness by Adriana Díaz, Colombia/SpainColorful Emptiness by Adriana Díaz, Colombia/Spain
« A piece of jewelry to remind us how time flies. Each and every moment. ”These pieces are small receptacles that actually contain nothing except a patina that is evocative of the passing of time. They are like rusty cans that have been abandoned in some forgotten corner, exposed to the elements and disuse” »
Balloon bracelet + Silver earrings by Tengely Nóra Jewelry, HungaryBalloon bracelet + Silver earrings by Tengely Nóra Jewelry, Hungary
« Playing with balloons and chain lines to find new balances.
”My jewelries are made of sterling silver with the technic of rigidified chains. Each link is soldered one by one. The balloon collection was made to find a new closure method. The bracelets consist two flat separated parts and the balloons press them together – they are the lock of the two parts”« 
 Deforested by Mona Velciov Monotip, Romania Deforested by  Mona Velciov Monotip , Romania
  Mona Velciov,  Her collection for AUTOR 16 is dedicated to transforming protest into a powerful aesthetic statement.
”Due to the last 20 years of vast illegal logging, both by private companies and the government, hundreds of thousands of hectares of Romanian forests, one of Europe’s last virgin forests, were deforested. This body of work is a protest and a confession: of the pain these actions are causing to the forests that it is also my pain”.
AUTOR 2017 - Girls in Red by Diederick van Hövell, Belgium: Girls in Red by Diederick Van Hovell, Belgium
 » What color is your mood? “With the contemporary jewel as a medium, I search, with detours, a specific color to translate a mood, a technique to express a touching feeling, to transpose emotions. A portrait, a jewel, a thought – as a testimony of an interest in the individual, as an evocation of the distinctive signs, to learn about the intersecting identities of each other. This is my subject matter”.:

”Working with found objects, I am interested in taking the previous inferred meanings of materials and changing the context to represent a new experience. Discarded metal, found threads, forgotten hardware and even seemingly useless care tags are things that often go unnoticed. Through my work, I intend to rediscover and represent these findings through a fresh outlook”.
Tidal Surge by Heather McDermott Jewellery, ScotlandTidal Surge by Heather McDermott Jewellery, Scotland
« ”Unconventional in size and structure, each piece is an expression of sculptural form and is designed to create a statement. The continually changing shoreline is my constant source of inspiration and my collection is the contemporary interpretation of these surroundings. Stainless steel and silver wire is hand formed into soft geometric shapes mimicking fishing nets and lobster pots” »

”The collection shows that I am intrigued by asceticism, old age and sensitivity. The pieces have a sense of comfort and safety to them and look very heavy, but are very light. I am extremely fascinated by the human psyche and the emotions and reactions that are part of it. In my work I want to study the human life span and the transitions, choices and turning points of life”

”As more as I get closer to plants and nature and work with them, I feel like a more powerful concept is taking over in this approach, the awareness of fragility of life, and for that to be more obvious I need to leave my plants more to hazard. In order to do that I have this new way, more voluptuous, of exhibiting dying organic matter, just by putting it into small protective exoskeletons made of precious metals or under thin glass”.

 Twelve New Graduates
Delectable jewellery, metalwork and silversmithing! Our annual pick of the most delicious new talents selected from all across the UK and Ireland!

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, which this year celebrates twenty years at Salts Mill, Saltaire, has selected and exhibited the work of new graduates since its inception. In numerous cases these emerging talents have gone on to gain wide acclaim for their work, and many continue to be represented by the gallery. For the exhibition New Tastes Kath serves up twelve sumptuous collections cooked up by new graduates from all over the UK and Ireland:  ‘Spotting and then supporting the work of cutting edge new graduates has always been extremely central to the ethos of the gallery.  Forging a career straight out of college is really challenging. Now, more than ever, it is vital to exhibit and encourage these incredibly talented jewellers and metalsmiths at this formative stage in their careers.’

Wanshu Li, Edinburgh College of Art‘Go with the Glow’ is a taste explosion – sensual, soft to the touch jewels, in a riot of fluorescent UV reactive nylon wire, inspired by raves, laser light shows, and jellyfish!
« My jewellery is focused on exploring the multisensory experience and making tactile wearable pieces, which involve different sensory experiences such as vision, sound, and touch. The inspiration for the jewellery series “Go with the Glow” stems from capturing the moving moments in the natural world. I was deeply attracted by free-swimming marine animal. For example jellyfish, which is soft, light, and glowing with the characteristics of amazing colours. I was also fascinated by dancing, rave party and laser light show.
I developed my work by experimenting with acrylic, moving beads, UV reactive nylon wire, UV light and fluorescent paints resulting in light-weighted tactile, colourful and playful pieces. The nylon wires under UV light creates an amazing fluorescent effect and provide a pleasant visual enjoyment for the wearers and viewers. Moreover, the pieces create subtle sounds, following freely with the movements of the body. »

Amanda Denison, Winchester School of Art
« I am inspired and intrigued by the traces left behind through dilapidation and decay and by the marks stamped on the urban environment.  And I am drawn to repeated elements that distort and change. 
I have a fine art background and this influences my approach to jewellery making. I live and work in West London and take numerous photographs of the details I discover as I walk the streets. These are incorporated into my work through mark making and drawings on my enameled surfaces.
I enjoy the challenge of working with industrial materials and traditional processes to create distinctive hand made art Jewellery. I like to work with steel and to add silver accents. I incorporate enamels and patinas to add colour but my palette is subtle and restrained. After kiln firing my enamels are deconstructed and the shiny finish is abraded. This creates richly degraded surfaces with subtle areas of hue and tone and a smooth matt finish. Where patches of bare steel are revealed they are encouraged to rust.  Each piece is unique for although I can repeat the processes there is always an element of chance and no two pieces are ever exactly the same. »

Michaela Murrain, De Montfort University, Leicester
« My work is all about colour, shape and repetition. The idea of taking plain white, flat pieces of fabric and manipulating them to create wearable sculpture is what excites me as a maker. I am inspired by the bold characteristics of neck adornment within African culture and from this I created my ‘Chunk and Loop’ jewellery collection where I have translated subtle elements, such as the placement of colour and scale, to create tactile, vibrant yet sophisticated, contemporary wearables. »

Stephanie O Leary, Middlesex University, London
« Drawn to the simplicity and elegance of clean lines in architectural design, Stephanie O’Leary is influenced by geometric structures which jut-out, protrude or extend from the existing ‘frame’ of their environment. Specifically scaffolding, cranes and power lines.
Scaffolding: “a temporary structure used to support the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings”.
What some may perceive as a temporary ugliness protruding out of the natural urban environment; she is drawn to its linear design, the contrast between permanence and degradation, and the transient nature of its construction.
Formed from various different components, scaffolding can be assembled in various different ways to integrate with and support a building; the structure can be assembled, disassembled, relocated and assembled again. In this sense, over time, the structure is in a constant state of flux, moving around the city.
By focussing on this dynamic, O’Leary uses universal hinges and industrial materials to create kinetic urban structures, which mimic the minimalist and fragmented aesthetic of London.
In combination with found objects, industrial and precious materials, O’Leary forms connections and links between discarded objects, material connotations and their environment in relation to urban cityscapes. »

Chen Cheng, Birmingham School of Jewellery – inspired by ballet, Chen’s delightfully playful series of rings and brooches seem alive, dancing on the body – every element of her finely manipulated metal wire mini sculptures move as the wearer moves.
« Chen Cheng believes that contemporary jewellery is interactive because it demands a response, which can either be physical or emotional. Through kinetic movement and visual interaction, her work is designed to be explored.
“My pieces invoke play. Every element is movable, and this quality enhances the physical movement of the wearer”.
Combining her own aesthetic and working style, Chen has taken inspiration from shapes and moving modes found in the human body, which are also expressed through modern and traditional ballet dancing. Applying this motion to express the mystique and magical forms of the human body was the key determining process in her jewellery design.
Using fine wire and simple metal shapes to create the minimal forms allows the audiences to pay close attention to the movement of the work. Akin to dancing, each piece’s “performance” holds its own surprise in style and character.
Chen hopes that her work will encourage the wearers to touch, feel and discover the meaning behind her work. She hopes that through a deeper appreciation of such interaction, jewellery can be better understood and more people would be able to appreciate the different expressions and styles of contemporary jewellery. »

Francesca Lobb, Manchester School of Art
« Through the exploration of body adornment and personal possessions my practice primarily focusses around how an object evokes personal comfort for its owner. Through interrogation of pre-owned objects and our interaction with our personal belongings, my works emphasis is on the user’s experience. By observing these interactions I question how the design of an object can entice an individual to explore the piece and how this can provoke the wearer to form a personal attachment to the item.
Producing small scale objects with close attention to detail, I question how the user will interact with each piece. Creating intricate designs that evoke engagement, generates an individual narrative upon each item through the user’s choice of how it is worn.
Exploration of traditional techniques within jewellery and metal work is integral within my practice to produce individual handmade items, which also allows myself as a maker to form a personal connection to each piece throughout its creation. »

Darcey Skelly, National College of Art and Design, Dublin‘Voyages of the Starship Stetson’ – a collision of two iconic fictional genres, Sci-Fi and the Western, paired in a crazy creation of her own imagining. Her concept, if the Cowboys of the Old West found a way to propel themselves into Space to colonise a planet. Darcey describes herself as ‘an illustrative maker’, a storyteller who aims to show there is more to a piece than meets the eye!

Sheng Zhang, Birmingham School of Jewellery – winner of the New Designers Goldsmiths’ Company Silversmithing Award 2016  is influenced by minimalist art and contemporary architecture. Shafts of light slice through finely crafted incisions in his series of supremely elegant geometric brooches and vessels – all darkly oxidised with glinting gold edges.
« Sheng Zhang is influenced by minimalist art and inspired by contemporary architecture. His passion concentrates on the exploration and expression of the relationship between internal and external spaces with significant contrasting elements such as forms, textures and colours.
The collection involves the utilisation of highlighted incisions and openings to imply and emphasise the link of internal and external space, as well as introducing light as an indicator of different spaces to allow the viewer to look through and explore the entire piece. This also strengthens the visual response, captures attention and produces curiosity for the viewer.
By employing simple geometric forms and contrasting colours, Sheng demonstrates a minimal style and visual language, which reflects his personality, philosophy and personal aesthetic.
Each piece is unique as a result of a carefully controlled and purposely structured making process. All the pieces are hand made in metal with appropriate techniques including plating and oxidising. The collection consists of functional and non-functional items. »

Freya Alder, Glasgow School of Art
« I am a designer, maker and jeweller based in Glasgow. My work tends to be informal, relatively un-precious and playful. I recently graduated from the design school at Glasgow School of art specialising in silversmithing and jewellery.
This work originally sprang from my love of illustrating the female form. I enjoy the long linear lines that so quickly represent a woman. With something like five strokes of a pen one can conjure a form, and a character within that form.
The subject of the nude woman is fraught with conflicts. The female form is often reductively objectified and generally devalued. I want my work to have a humour and an informality that isn’t often afforded to the subject of the naked women or indeed the discipline of jewellery »

Hayley Brooks, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee - the peaceful expansive landscapes of the Scottish wilds are captured in her sensitive collection of chokers and bangles – microscopic details of lichen covered rocks appear in richly textured soft silicone contrasting with sleek silver – ‘a personal souvenir – enabling the wearer to carry with them something of the peace and solace found in the Scottish landscape.’
« The Scottish landscape provides peacefulness, an opportunity to free your mind, and access to silence. A stark contrast to the every day hustle and bustle of city life. Through photography I capture things that interest me ranging from the textures and details in the rocks found at my feet to the wider expansive landscapes that give us a sense of place. I am interested in the natural reflection of the landscape in the details of the rocks – the macroscopic in the microscopic!
Through this innovative collection of contemporary jewellery I aim to raise awareness of the beauty of the Scottish landscape, as I want other people see what I can see in the rocks and stones. These immensely wearable pieces, combine alternative materials such as silicone and precious metal, and also act as a personal souvenir – enabling the wearer to carry something of the peace and solace found in the Scottish landscape. »

 "Recycled Powder" collection - T Squared Tami Eshed - Israel. Selected for AUTOR 2016 ★Tami Eshed – Israel – « Recycled Powder » collection – T Squared – Selected for AUTOR 2016  
« Keep thinking green! » says Tami. « In this specific collection, I have decided to create a limited edition of pieces, which are manufactured in an eco-friendly manner. Instead of dying the pins, necklaces and rings with a standard Epoxy paint, I have decided to use the powder of leftover metal paint as the main coloring ingredient. »

"Sponge" by Konstantinos Georgopoulos Giftforever from Greece  « Sponge » by Konstantinos Georgopoulos Giftforever from Greece ★
“I’ve always been fascinated by objects such as wood, rocks or bone carved from the power of nature, or “bizarre” forms and combinations such as a root stuck between two rocks or a garnet crystal as a rough diamond inclusion. The greek sponges that can be found mainly in the sea of Kalymnos Island was -this time – my inspiration.”

Pressure by Panayiotis Panayi from Cyprus★ Pressure by Panayiotis Panayi from Cyprus★
Since the dawn of man, we humans had an intrinsic desire to further evolve our species.This intellectual tendency that leads us to our goals, leaves us oblivious to any negative consequences to our surroundings or ourselves. We will pursue our goals at any cost.
These days we have managed to lose control, we have imprisoned our spirit and we are fed on a daily basis a banquet of stress and pressure to further accommodate our own ambitions or the ones of our peers.
The collection is inspired by that burden; by the pressure that seems to distinguish modern man. This collection is made out of titanium (lightweight elastic, hard metal). As it wraps around the finger it applies a small amount of pressure.

Isabelle Busnel  necklaceIsabelle Busnel  necklace  My work explores all the stereotypes of classical jewellery. After a first collection playing with the kitsch imagery of cheap and popular jewellery (owls, skulls, cameos, tigers…), my second body of work focuses on the aesthetics of pearls. In my last new collection I investigate the attraction of stones. I am still using silicone rubber as material but this time I am adding translucent coloured silicone to mimic stones. White is still predominant in my necklaces and magnetic brooches but I give them a new twist with a large range of colours.
For AUTOR 2016, I am planning to show a mix of the “pearls” and the “stones” collections.

« My jewelry shows calmness and quietness in a various and showy society using gray metal’s own characteristic. I combined the wood and metal to express heavy hearts and worries because of incompleteness communication between people. »Cleopatra Cosulet -  ·   reCYCLE Collection -   Brooch - Sterling Silver - Recycled Plastic - Miyuki Delica 11/0 (cylindrical glass beads) - Fireline (nylon) Thread.: « reCYCLE Collection » by Cleopatra Cosulet from Romania.

« In the physical, concrete level, we are the result of our actions , reactions and interactions. Their amount structurally determine the whole assembly which we are part of. Its isuues are also ours issues. Yet by awarness and appropriate behaviour the equilibrium can be restored.The collection is a honest and transparent statement, revealing the intentions of personal involvement and its purpose. The materials used (recycled plastic, Sterling Silver, patina, glass beads, nylon thread) and the colors chosen reveal the implicit message: « Let’s do something that matters. »

 Tule design by Helmi Lindblom, Finland [Photography by Ninni Vidgren] Tule design by Helmi Lindblom, Finland [Photography by Ninni Vidgren]
« I would like to tell the stressful world, but I can not. Nor do I want to underline the seriousness of
our time and human insecurity. Instead, I want to bring people something to hold on to.
With my current work I try to get the viewer to forget the seriousness so often connected to art. I wish that my pieces will encourage approaching touching and wearing them. I hope that the wearers lose themselves in the repeated movement of their fingers on jewelry’s surface and into the varying fingertip feelings. »

 “Meat Animals In The Grass”, 2016 by Ana Barbu UZURA from Romania  “Meat Animals In The Grass”, 2016 by Ana Barbu /UZURA from Romania ★
« This collection’s theme is the city and its aberrations, the way it makes us live, in small safe antiseptic spaces, the way it makes us eat, packed food of unknown origin, the way it makes us move, traveling in cars and running on treadmills, etc. My choice of expressing this frankensteined urban life is by using the idea of diorama, of architectural small scale models, but not to represent buildings and townscapes, but a traditional, natural, almost idyllic landscape populated with animals that now we usually grow for food in industrialized farms. »

 [Re]Born by Rada Ureche from Romania [Re]Born by Rada Ureche from Romania
« [Re]Born is a collection that emphasises on the recycling of materials, giving us an impulse to reuse or to give another destination to the objects we think we no longer need. It represents an unspoken dialougue between the perfect shapes, texture or finish and the small marks of crafting that remain visible as a humble recognition of our human flaws and imperfections.
By using the keum-boo technique we wanted to highlight the beauty and different shapes of melted silver, showing that we can prevent the waste of potentially usefull materials. As gold fusions with silver, so does every action or innaction we have upon the world we live in.
Materials used: recycled sterling silver, 23.5k gold sheet. »

 "Thinking Building" collection by Etay Malka from Israel « Thinking Building » collection by Etay Malka from Israel
« This project deals with the architecture in Tel Aviv. The differences in the city today are mainly reflected by the character of the buildings and their height. Bauhaus buildings with 2 floors and rounded balconies stand alongside the skyscrapers, offices and cranes. »

  THE UNPREDİCTABLE FORM/FOAM collection by Hakan Aktug from TurkeyTHE UNPREDİCTABLE FORM/FOAM collection by Hakan Aktug from Turkey

By Corrina Goutos - representing Germany, from AmericaBy Corrina Goutos – representing Germany, from America
Based on my exploration of the archetype of The Souvenir, my current collection looks at the things we take, imbue with a memory, place or moment, and the objects and traces that we leave behind in the process. The ephemeral dialogue between man’s rituals and nature’s forces; between environment and inhabitants.
In a culture of convenience, consumption and transience, I seek out the lost and found objects and site installations that have the memory of a person. They are the unfinished stories of affection, and neglect, visible in objects we interact with.

 Christine Jalio”Loss” by Christine Jalio from Finland –
“The “Loss”- collection is a continuum of my earlier “Past, Loss, Future”- collection which tells a story of aging, personal loss and life before and after big turning points in life. In the new ”Loss”- collection I have been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what happens after you loose someone you love. I have gone even deeper into the emotional turmoil of an individual person and tried hard to capture these feelings in my work. The pieces have a sense of comfort and safety to them and look very heavy, but are actually really light. Like a person who carries great sadness within, I wanted my pieces to be very quiet and scream very loud at the same time.”

EXPO ‘Side by Side’ – ECNP Gallery, Istanbul (Turkey) – 3-26 Mars 2016

Side by Side by Burcu Büyükünal and Selen Özus

Side by Side is an amalgam of two solo but parallel shows by Burcu and Selen, who have been sharing a mutual dream since 2007 and finally Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio since 2011. Side by Side, the result of a long working process, emerges as a response to the passion and the need to create. In that regard, it is the fruit of not only a spatial cooperation but is also a meeting of the hearts. After Hasbelkader, the first show Burcu and Selen put on “together” in 2012, this second exhibition.

Side by Side

 

 

Let It…,  Burcu Büyükünal
Let it exist, let it cease, let it come, let it go, let it stay, let it appear, let it conceal, let it decay, let it split, let them gather, let it unite, let it be remembered, let it be forgotten, let it out, let it in, let it get lost, let it be found, let it become ugly, let it turn beautiful…
Let it… is a work that began to appear in my mind when I lost myself in the details of Abel Mort sculpture by Emile Feugère des Fort in Musée d’Orsay. It emerges from these details and changes its direction under the influence of the natural and obligatory course of life. It is fiction but it is real.
 Biography:
Having graduated from Industrial Design Department of Istanbul Technical University in 2003, Burcu Büyükünal started to work at Ela Cindoruk and Nazan Pak’s jewellery studio. After receiving Fulbright Award she got her MFA in Metal at SUNY at New Paltz in 2009. She confounded Maden Contemporary Jewelry Studio in 2011 with Selen Özus. Currently, she teaches classes at Maden, İTÜ and Plato Higher College of Education.
  Artist Statement:
« Among my works, there are designed products along with functional and nonfunctional, artistic and arbitrary pieces that I cannot classify. Contemporary jewellery, which is my main field, comes and goes between these two related disciplines, stands closer to one of them time to time. I sometimes focus on a technique, a material or a visual data around me and create links among them while revealing my own point of view. I crave to ask uncommon questions and find alternative answers to them. Even though I enjoy sticking to my habits in the process of creation, I find theme shifts nourishing and exciting. I believe creating and making is a childlike addiction. That’s why my studio is my living room. »

The Closest, Selen Özus
My autoportrait works entitled “The closest” are the products of an interpretive process of visualizing myself which resulted in conflicts and clashes.The period started with shut-eye drawings: My white on white faces only to reveal themselves with a closer look, are chosen to define myself. Porcelaine works emerged as the variable reflections of transparent and delicate materials gone with the flow.
 Selen Özus Biography:
Selen Özus was born in 1983 in Istanbul, where she continues to live and work. She got her BFA in Ceramic and Glass Design in Mimar Sinan Fine Art University, followed by a three year Jewellery Program in Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence where she took classes from Peter Bauhuis, Manfred Bischoff and Ruudt Peters.  Her work has been exhibited locally and internationally. She teaches at the Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio, she co-founded with Burcu Büyükünal.
  Artist Statement:
« It all starts with the valuable beauties and ugliness’ that surround us: People, being human, lights, spaces, relations, memories, nature and details.The sensations created by everybody and everything awaken a desire to produce.In fact, all shapens up while paying gently attention to the details. From then on my sole aim is to retreat to my secured world and to concretize what I see with my feelings… to reflect the combination of brain and heart. While producing, drawings become objects, objects become art jewellery. Once my strong feelings balanced, the rest passes to the piece. »

« About the exhibition :  A former student, Isabel Dammermann, took it upon herself to make a special event for the teacher Manfred Bischoff who inspired so many. At the same time, she has managed to create a very interesting exhibition that is on display during the Munich Jewellery week 2016. »

Jewellery artists from 22 countries all over the world come together in a memorial exhibition for Manfred Bischoff who passed away a year ago. At some point or other, they have all been taught by Manfred at Alchimia, contemporary jewellery school in Florence, and have each submitted one piece to the exhibition that honours a great teacher.
German born Manfred Bischoff lived in Tuscany in a house that was in itself a piece of exquisite art. Its magical interior made a natural and perfect framework for his work that has been called by many names: sensual, poetic, lyrical, great, intimate, strong, beautiful, satirical and always surprising. He worked in 22K gold, as pure as he could manage and still maintain a rigidity in the metal that allowed him to execute his ideas in delicate and well crafted pieces, often accompanied with subtle pink coral and drawings.
His dedication to the language of jewellery and his visions were most likely one of the reasons that the Alchimia school managed to become known and respected internationally in a relatively short time span.

The teacher
« As a student at Alchimia, you never really met Manfred until the third year. He was a giant figure who arrived to the narrow street in Florence on Tuesdays. He spent time with the older students, watched the world from behind his sunglasses when he leaned onto the wall at coffee breaks, and then he vanished again.
It was not until you were there yourself – in your final year – that you met the myth and began to appreciate his capacity to engage in your work and to show you how you might develop it. He was a surprisingly selfless teacher, and during critiques in the small classroom he managed to create a space for you and him to engage in a dialogue about your work that was stripped of second agendas and based solely on how he could help you to become a better artist.
It is only later, you come to understand how exceptionally truthful and helpful he tried to be in order to make you grow as a person and as an artist. »
