LIGHT me please …… Bijoux allumés …

…. ou, comme le dit si bien Monika Brugger : « bijou dématérialisé en expérience de lumière »

matériau : lumière (« light » en anglais), légéreté (« light » en anglais …), fée électricité ….

« Jewelry that explores the lucent qualities of materials. Mostly using acrylics – or perspex, plexiglass or lucite, names depending on the manufacturers –  experiments are made using neon colors and transparencies which are very adequate mediums to conduct light but as well by including electrical components that add to the already quite extraordinary forms the conceptual element of thinking jewellery as devices. «  (popupuau)

Dian Luo, a Chinese jewellery designer based in London.  Using the  light  as  the design source,  she  transforms  it  from  abstractive  element  into  a  multiplicity  of  geometric  jewellery  piece  that  plays with shadow & movement.
by Yoolhee Ko
by Yoolhee Ko - « reflection » collection 2012
« Why have you choose plastic to make your jewellery? Yoolhee Ko: Because of my concept. I would like to transfer colour to my jewels and my jewels are quite big so I have to use more light weight materials… I chose plastic. Prisms have their transparency and sheerness, but at the same time when it sparkles by reflecting light, there are chromatic colours. It took me back to the visuals that are dreamy and full of fantasy. » (Dazed Digital interview)
The artist’s designs resemble a prism, which at first appears transparent and singular, but reflects chromatic colors when light shines through. By embedding her own experiences and perceptions into her designs, Ko’s pieces project new images through the act of reflection. Ko hopes her users will experience an equally reflective form of catharsis when they wear her designs

Aurora – Second Skin by Lighting -  by Kyeok Kim
« Aurora creates patterns of light on the body as ornamentation, extending the ornamented space around the body and restyling its decorative silhouette by motion. Aurora highlights the relationship between different pieces of jewellery, by its nature the pieces interact with the another. To operate the decorative light, one must gently move the ring (containing a magnet) towards the main jewellery piece. »

Jasbir Sandhu: Wearable Art Maps Brussels Belgium exhibitions unique custom jewelry custom handmade jewellery exhibitions

In 2012, during an exhibition “d’Art et de corps” at WCC-BF World Craft Council in Mons Belgium; Singaporean born artist Jasbir Sandhu ‘s work showed a formal and meaningful interpretation of images of countries written in contemporary calligraphy (association of the significance and written forms). 
Her art work was noticed by the interior architect Jean-Loui De Ridder of AXIA sprl , and since then they collaborated to launch a contemporary jewellery collection named J*S Just So. 
More than the initials of her name, this collection portrays the multicultural origins of the artist in a sober writing summarizing the countries she knows and loves most. 
Artistic form is at the heart of this exhibition, particularly in the giant pieces that actually frame our bodies. The jewellery created by this artist, who is taking a master’s in jewellery at the Arts et Métiers in Brussels, are also our everyday structures, our roots, our culture. 
Jasbir’s wearable works, depicts the outlines of satellite images of countries. They are finely cut out using laser technology and produced either as one-off pieces or in limited editions (the annual collection). 
These elegant ornaments of identity, in stainless steel or in shining, matt or brushed precious metal, are sometimes enhanced with a diamond marking a city. The unmistakable lines of this refined jewellery immediately speak to us of the countries and cities that crisscross our lives and which hold such intimate value for us.

Chiara Scarpitti : poésie bien encadrée

Classé dans : Chiara SCARPITTI (IT),COUP DE COEUR,Italie (IT),textile — bijoucontemporain @ 21:24

 Chiara Scarpitti

« Her jewels are very special, they are created by a mixture of different materials which define a strong style.
The design approach is alchemic. The starting point of alchemy is the unity of matter: matter is one, but can take myriad forms and be combined in many others inexhaustible ways. From raw material borns also the work of a designer. Both a designer that an alchemist work with the idea of “practice trasmutatoria”. For both, values are given specifically to the mass, space, light and shadow, and is active the participation of the body to these physical elements. Both live and think the object of their search. Oriented research, however, to the “recovery of manual dexterity, to the practical experiment, to the verify in the laboratory”.
The haute couture tailoring techniques, along with inkjet prints on silk combine the industrial chemical cut steel to create a new type of jewellery between design and craftsmanship, unicity and seriality. There’s an attempt to return with an aura of mystery and magic in who wears this jewel. Reactions between jewelry and body, between jewelry and another, between jewelry and the space around him, “Reaction Poétique”. » (design catwalk)

EXPO ‘Come Apart’ – Heidi Lowe Gallery, Rehoboth (DE),(USA) – 13 Aout-9 Nov. 2010

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Heidi Lowe (US),The Opulent Project (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:20

The Opulent Project, a Portland (OR) based artists collective, will open a new exhibition, « Come Apart », at Heidi Lowe Gallery on August 13, 2011 from 6-9 P.M.

http://www.heidilowejewelry.com/common/resizethumb.php?galleryId=20B8-EFFH-6E59&titleId=561&new_width=500&new_height=275&whichimage=1&watermark=

 

The Opulent Project have created a new body of work for the upcoming exhibition entitled, “Come Apart.” The work in this show explores various forms of fragmentation visually, physically and/or conceptually. They have also created another variation of one of their classic pieces “Wallpaper.” “Wallpaper” explores adornment related to the body and interior space. The viewer is invited to participate by pulling jewelry from the wall to adorn themselves while at the same time revealing a pattern in the negative space that remains.

 

The Opulent Project uses new technologies to create jewelry that questions the conventional idea of value. Megan Drinkwater and Erin Gardner, Opulent Project founders will be at the gallery to show their work and answer questions. The show will be on view through October.

EXPO ‘A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry’ – MAD Museum, NY (US) – 15 Mars-4 Sept. 2011

L’exposition de Limoges part à new-York ! :-)
The Exhibition is traveling from Limoges, France, to New York, USA

(cf article  : «  EXPO ‘Un peu de terre sur la peau’ – FONDATION BERNARDAUD, Limoges (FR) – 16 juin-16 oct 2010« )

EXPO 'A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry' - MAD Museum, NY (US) - 15 Mars-4 Sept. 2011 dans ceramique 188041_152613144796629_7257687_n

A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry explores the manifold appeal of ceramics, especially porcelain, in jewelry. Organized by the Fondation d’Entreprise Bernardaud and curated by the renowned German-born goldsmith and jewelry artist Monika Brugger, the exhibition showcases the versatility and allure of the medium, which can be modeled or cast, used alone or with metal, wood, and stone, and vary in color and texture. Best known as the stuff of the luxurious and the mundane, of fine tableware and technical equipment, when used in jewelry, porcelain sparks the visual and physical sensations to become an object of desire.
The exhibition showcases the scope and ingenuity of the more than one hundred works on view and features the work of 18 cutting-edge jewelry artists, including creations by such notables as Peter Hoogeboom, Evert Nijland, Ted Noten (The Netherlands), Gésine Hackenberg (Germany), Marie Pendariès (France), and Shu-Lin Wu (Taiwan). While some make reference to traditional jewelry in materials and symbolism, others altogether redefine it in substance, form, and matter.
« Even though the Egyptians produced seal rings in faience, and the Greeks and Romans gilded terracotta to imitate gold, the use of ceramics in the fabrication of jewelry was abandoned centuries ago, » says curator Monika Brugger. « Today many artists, like those assembled in this show, are popularizing porcelain as a compelling material for jewelry. »
« Ceramic jewelry embodies the creative transformation of a humble Earth material by art and industry into a wearable object of great refinement and sensuality, » notes MAD’s Jewelry Curator Ursula Ilse-Neuman. « Exploring new currents in art jewelry is a vital part of the Museum’s mission, » she continues. « We are delighted to present these visually and intellectually engaging works to a New York audience. »

THE FONDATION D’ENTREPRISE BERNARDAUD
Established in 2003 by Michel Bernardaud, the family-run company’s Chairman and CEO, the mission of the Fondation d’Entreprise Bernardaud is to promote a deeper public awareness of porcelain’s fascinating history and extraordinary qualities. The Fondation, located in Limoges, France, welcomes an international array of artists and designers who are invited to invent unexpected usages for porcelain. Through these innovative and technically challenging projects, the Fondation aims to give new value to a craft that favors the « wisdom of the hand. »

Innovation in ENAMEL jewelry – Research project by Jessica Turrell

The Innovation in Enamel Jewellery database is one of the outcomes of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)  funded three-year fellowship Innovation in Vitreous Enamel Surfaces for Jewellery.

As part of the research project extensive research was undertaken to identify a group of internationally prominent contemporary jewellers whose practice demonstrates an open and innovative approach to the use of enamel. When complete the database will feature images and supporting information on the work of approximately 30 artists. The aim of the database is to highlight the potential of enamel as an expressive and contemporary medium as well as serving as an important research tool.

The database, which is fully searchable, focuses exclusively on enamel jewellery and complements the existing archive ICVEA (International Contemporary Vitreous Enamel Archive) that is also hosted by the University of the West of England and which includes a broad range of contemporary enamel work.

Currently the database features the work of the following artists:
Carola Bauer – Germany
Jamie Bennett – USA
Stacey Bentley – UK
Patrizia Bonati – Italy
Stephen Bottomley – UK
Jessica Calderwood – USA
Lydia Feast – UK
Mirjam Hiller – Germany
Ike Junger – Germany
Kaori Juzu – Denmark
Ann Little – UK
Lianna Pattihis – UK
Jacqueline Ryan – Italy
Isabell Schaupp – Germany
Vera Siemund – The Netherlands
Marjorie Simon – USA
Elizabeth Turrell – UK
Jessica Turrell – UK
Annamaria Zanella – Italy
The following artist will be added in early autumn 2010:
Jennaca Davies – USA
Carolina Gimeno – Spain
Christine Graf – Germany
Sangeun Kim – UK

(UWE – University of the West England – Bristol – AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) Vitreous Enamel Research Project)

Awarding body: Arts and Humanities Research Council
Awarded to: Jessica Turrell
Project duration: 1.09.2007 – 31.08.2010

introduction:
The research project is based on the premise that there is huge and largely unexplored potential for innovation within the field of enamelled jewellery. By taking both a practice-led and theoretical approach the aim of the project has been to identify factors that might hinder innovation and present a series of alternative approaches that encourage a more experimental and open-minded approach to enamel.

Research Context
The practical aspects of the research project were underpinned by theoretical and contextual research into the place of enamel in contemporary jewellery practice. This included a wide-ranging visual and literature survey. Web-based research combined with a series of visits to individual practitioners in the USA and Europe as well as to significant exhibitions and collections in Europe, the UK and USA, provided a broad overview of current enamel jewellery practice. This contextual research led to the identification of a number of contemporary jewellers for whom enamel forms a significant part of their practice. A methodology was developed by which the output of these jewellers was analyzed and then allocated to one of three distinct categories. These were as follows:

Skilled (fine) – broadly work that concentrates on traditional enamelling techniques to create work for a mainstream or commercial market.

New – where the work itself engages with contemporary ideas but where enamel is used simply to add a paint-like layer of colour to the surface of the piece using only basic techniques.

Innovative – where the two practices overlap and the artist is able to demonstrate both a k

A selected group of individuals, identified through this process as falling into the Innovative category, were then invited to submit images and supporting written material to the new Innovation in Vitreous Enamel Surfaces in Jewellery database that operates alongside (and is complimentary to) the existing International Contemporary Vitreous Enamel Archive (ICVEA) currently held by the Enamel Research Unit at the University of the West of England, Bristol.

The contextual and theoretical aspects of the project are examined in depth in an article for Craft Research entitled Surface and Substance – a call for the fusion of skill and ideas in contemporary enamel jewellery.

Discussion Forum
A variety of approaches have been taken in order to stimulate debate and comment regarding the place of enamel in contemporary jewellery practice. The first of these was a discussion forum entitled ‘Innovation in Enamel’ which has involved a number of internationally prominent enamel artists all of whom demonstrate a non-traditional approach to their enamel practice. The central aim of this forum has been to highlight the potential of enamel as an innovative medium and to stimulate debate about the aesthetic, conceptual and practical considerations that govern the use of enamel in contemporary jewellery practice. The forum has operated as a members’ only project, meaning that the site can only be accessed by registered members and they alone are able to view the content and submit comment. The rational for this was to encourage those involved to freely discuss their ideas without the constraints of operating within a public arena.

Selected extracts and a summary of the discussions threads can be accessed here.

In addition to the forum site, Jessica has initiated a discussion strand -‘Surface and substance: the place of enamel in contemporary jewellery practice’, which appears on the International Art Jewellery Online Community, Klimt02 – www.klimt02.net/blogs

These two discussion strands have informed the written and theoretical aspects of the research and the production of a number of case studies.
Case Studies
The case studies feature artists who were chosen as representative of a broad and diverse range of approaches to enamel :

In order to 

promote innovative enamel jewellery to the widest possible audience Jessica is currently curating a significant international exhibition that will feature a group of jewellers identified for their innovative use of enamel. The show will begin its tour at Contemporary Applied Arts in London in late 2011, and will then travel to a number of venues across the UK including to the Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales.


Practical and Technical Research

The focus of the practical element of the research has been an investigation into the use of innovative and experimental enamelling techniques in the production of contemporary jewellery. Methods and approaches more usually associated with large-scale and panel enamelling and industrial processes have been adapted for use in wearable pieces. This investigation is supported by the development of a range of techniques that allow for the creation of three-dimensional forms that can be successfully enamelled.
The practical and technical aspects of the research fall into two main categories, these are the production of three-dimensional forms capable of being enamelled in the round and the development of enamelling techniques suitable for application to these three-dimensional forms.

Three-dimensional form trials

Initial research involved investigations into the use of three-dimensional forms created using traditional forming, construction and joining methods. The most commonly used joining technique is the use of high melting-point (or hard) silver solders. The received wisdom is that it is not possible to enamel directly over a soldered joint as the solder will discolour the overlying enamel and can in some cases cause it to come away from the soldered joint. In order to test this theory, extensive investigations were undertaken into the use of a group of silver alloy solders, which were tested for their stability and the effect that they had on the subsequent layer of fired enamel.

Although some solders gave better results than others they all visibly interfered with the enamel they were directly in contact with in some way.

As an alternative to the use of solders, fusion and laser welding were investigated. Both these methods use high levels of accurately directed heat to achieve a fused joint that does not require any additional solder. Although, to differing degrees, both of these techniques created a satisfactory join over which enamel could successfully be applied without too many problems the equipment required was not easily accessible, required outside assistance and was expensive to trial. For these reasons this avenue of research was not pursued.
It seemed that a seam free object should prove the ideal form over which to apply the enamel. There are a number of small-scale silver and copper-smithing techniques that can be employed to raise a seam-free hollow form from a flat sheet of meta,l but such methods are technically demanding and particularly difficult on a small scale. Thus this avenue of research was also rejected. Instead, the technique of electroforming seemed to offer a versatile and accessible method for the creation of 3D forms, and it became clear that a detailed investigation of the technique would prove to be the most productive strand of research.

To this end bespoke electroforming equipment was researched, designed, and built, and a series of tests undertaken. Research and trials were carried out to establish the most suitable materials and methods of production of base forms upon which metal might be deposited during the electroforming process.

Discussions took place with colleagues from the 3D Research Laboratory within the CFPR into the possibilities of creating mandrels using rapid prototyping techniques, and the indicative trials that were carried out to ascertain the suitability of the RP process to create electroforming mandrels and the potential for the medium with which the object is printed both to withstand the process and be easily removed as a core prior to enamelling. As a direction for further research these initial trials hold a lot of promise.
This collaborative strand of research was documented in a poster presentation given during the IMPACT 7 conference in 2009.

In order for the electroforming process to occur it is necessary that the surface of the object to be electroformed is able to conduct an electrical current. As a number of non-conductive materials had been identified as appropriate to this research it was therefore necessary to undertake a further series of trails to establish the most suitable electro-conductive coatings for the purposes of the project.

The final experiments in the production of the underlying electroforms was to trial all the variable of the electroforming process itself to establish the best method for the creation of a smooth and stable form of an appropriate surface and structure that would withstand the application of enamel.

Enamelling trials
In order to develop methods for the application of enamel to the three-dimensional forms resulting from the first strand of investigation, a comprehensive series of tests for the application and adhesion of jewellery and industrial enamel to two and 3D surfaces was undertaken. Stilting and firing methods for 3D objects enamelled in the round were also investigated. Methodology for the recording of technical tests has been developed and trialed and a standardized format has been developed, informed by these trials, which has been used to record the results of all tests undertaken.

Practical Outcomes
On completion of the practical trials a group of jewellery pieces were created using the methods established as most appropriate in the realization of a defined personal aesthetic. These pieces were exhibited at Contemporary Applied Art in London during June and July 2010.

Dissemination
The practical and theoretical outcomes of the project were disseminated by a number of methods throughout the period of the research.

symposium:
A symposium was held at the Bower Ashton Campus, University of the West of England in July 2010:
Read a review of the symposium here – http://www.iom3.org/news/enamoured-enamel

SUMMARY:
Addressing an audience composed of professional makers, academics, researchers and students the symposium examined the place of enamel within contemporary jewellery practice, celebrating its potential as an exciting and innovative material. At a time when increasing numbers of contemporary jewellers are rediscovering enamel this event offered a timely opportunity for the sharing of information and ideas plus a chance to network and take part in debate.

 

Conclusion
The ultimate aim of the project has been to demonstrate the potential of enamel as an exciting and innovative material and to thus affect a change in the commonly held perception that enamel is a medium not readily associated with contemporary jewellery practice. It is anticipated that the dissemination of the outcomes of the research project Innovation in Vitreous Enamel Surface for Jewellery will go some way towards the creation of an environment where the innovative potential of the material is more widely recognized, both by the jewellery community and within art education, thus allowing a more ambitious and rigorous enamel practice to flourish.

« The intimate scale of jewellery is a central factor in my practice. I strive to create work that has a tactile delicacy and that rewards the wearers close attention with an intricate and detailed surface. Over recent years I have developed an experimental approach to enamel by which I seek to create work that moves away from traditional jewellery enamel practice in order to achieve a more ambiguous and expressive surface quality. » (Jessica Turrell)
