EXPO ‘Not Too Precious’ – National Craft Gallery, Kilkenny (Ireland) – 22 Janv.–30 Mars 2016

 Not_Too_Precious exhib
(Attai Chen on left – Carina Chitsaz-Shoshtary on right)
Not Too Precious explores inspirational work by 25 international jewellers using materials for their expressive potential rather than for their intrinsic value. Radical artist jewellers of the late 1960s and 70s vigorously rejected the idea that jewellery should be considered ‘precious’ simply because of the materials of which it was made. Today, the use of a huge variety of materials in jewellery is far more accepted, but economic pressures are putting that freedom of artistic expression at potential risk as people revert to traditionally ‘valuable’ materials for ‘safety’. Not Too Precious challenges preconceptions about ‘non-precious’ materials by encouraging us to consider ‘accrued value’: what talented makers bring to their work through their ideas and skill.
The selected artists, who currently work in the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, create innovative, skilfully-made jewellery that is insightful and culturally resonant. Sometimes poignant, sometimes witty, their work communicates at many levels. It is above all honest and – for want of a better term – not too precious.

Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery

Mari Funaki was a unique and passionate advocate for contemporary jewellery in Australia, both through her own remarkable practice and her establishment and directorship of Gallery Funaki.
This Award aims to celebrate Mari’s legacy by rewarding the skills and vision of jewellers both here and overseas and by providing a platform for outstanding new work to be shown here in Australia. A panel of three judges will award prizes in both established and emerging categories, with total prize money valued at AUD$11,000.

The judges are:
Warwick Freeman, an eminent New Zealand jeweller who has exhibited with Gallery Funaki since 1995. He is the recipient of the Francoise van den Bosch Prize (2002) and the Bayerischer Staatpreis ‘Modern Classic’ (2013).
Simon Cottrell, a prominent Australian jeweller and educator and currently acting head of the Gold and Silversmithing Workshop at ANU, Canberra. Cottrell has an extensive exhibition history and his work is held in numerous international collections.
Julie Ewington, a leading Australian art specialist with almost 40 years experience as an academic, writer and curator. Most recently Curatorial Manager at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art, she has a particular interest in contemporary jewellery and has written extensively on the topic, most recently in the 2013 Lark publication, ‘Contemporary Jewelry in Perspective’. She was recognised this year with an Australia Council for the Arts Visual Arts Award.
The Award is generously supported by Vivienne and Leo Donati, Johannes Hartfuss and Fabian Jungbeck

And the winners are…

In the established category, the judges chose Kiko Gianocca’s Veneer necklaces.

There are two winners in the emerging category. The first is Patrícia Correia Domingues with her pendant from the Duality series.
The second emerging prize goes to Sara Gackowska for her Membrane brooch from the Methamorphosis series .

In the emerging category, the judges also gave a commendation to Inari Kiuru’s two brooches from the Evolution series (right), saying “this commendation recognises the conceptual adventurousness of her project, which takes her across diverse materials to explore the inter-connectedness of natural and urban systems.”

And a commendation in the established category went to Jiro Kamata, for his Spiegel necklace (right). The judges said “this classical graduated necklace is composed of camera lenses and mirrors that bring viewers into the very substance of the piece. But, note, everyone who sees themselves will do so from a different perspective. This, in combination with its impeccable making, comprises its simple elegance.”

We extend warm congratulations to all the winning artists and thank everyone involved in the exhibition, which received an overwhelmingly positive response on this, its opening night.

 

Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery - Kiko Gianocca’s Veneer necklacesIn the established category, the judges chose Kiko Gianocca’s Veneer necklaces (2014, neckpiece, wood veneer, balsawood, brass, 220x240x18mm). Of these works, they commented: “They have a boldness of scale that makes them look challenging to wear, but the choice of materials and the subtlety of the construction make these pieces exceptionally successful on the body.
Veneer 1, 2 and 3 are deceptively straightforward titles, but we found that the pieces evoke many different associations and interpretations. They move and shift on the body, with their beautiful hinging adapting to the wearer. This is exceptional work.”
There are two winners in the emerging category. The first is Patrícia Correia Domingues with her pendant from the Duality series.

The second emerging prize goes to Sara Gackowska for her Membrane brooch from the Methamorphosis series .

Sara Gackowska Brooch: Membrane, 2013 Bio-resin, hematite, sterling silver 100x65x25mm
The second emerging prize goes to Sara Gackowska for her Membrane brooch (2013, brooch, bio-resin, hematite, sterling silver, 100x65x25mm) from the Methamorphosis series .
The judges said: “We greatly admired the elegant oppositions between the two main materials- dense hematite on the top surface, and spongy bio-resin on the base. There’s a wonderful necessary relationship between the two materials and the way the top surface appears broken, and fractured, precisely because of their interaction.”

Patrícia Correia Domingues -  WINNER OF THE Mari Funaki EMERGING PRIZEPatrícia Correia Domingues  with her pendant from the Duality series. (‘Duality’, 2014, pendant, artifical ivory,)Of this work, the judges said: “Patricia’s work Duality plays with oppositions between chance and deliberation – if you look at the piece, you’ll see that it seems highly structured – it’s a frame of artificial ivory, but she has embraced the possibilities of chance in fracturingthat form.”

LOOT 2013: Violaine Ulmer - porcelain
Violaine Ulmer (FR) - porcelain necklace
For Parisian jeweler Violaine Ulmer, the conception of a new piece of jewelry involves consideration of the interactions of light, transparency, form, & space to create a plastic object, not just an item of adornment. Each piece is above all a sculpture & a further source of experimentation. This approach gives form to “objewels” (objects-sculptures-jewelry), work that can be placed at the intersection of art, fashion, & design. Her current explorations focus on the meeting point between specific porcelain techniques & classic jewelry-making processes. Through this research, Ulmer evolves forms that exploit the fundamental character of her materials; they are both generous & pared to the essence.
Mathilde Quinchez .Mathilde Quinchez (FR)
Inspired by the lines found in nature, and more particularly by seeds and cocoons, Paris-based designer Mathilde Quinchez conveys a subtle and sensual world at fertility’s moment of origin. She communicates the most intimate matters with delicacy: her small, original cells convey a latent strength, comprising both the essence and the entirety of the universe. Beyond symbols, Quinchez brings us back to our perception of our senses—a wide range of simple and vital emotions. Her work also reflects on time, in her careful attention to detail, and the patina that the jewels will eventually wear. Quinchez’s way of working with silver, her pure lines and forms that explore fullness and emptiness, and her delicate perforations make her jewels extremely refined. In her hands, the metal becomes a synthesis of light, femininity and subtlety.
Andrea PinerosAndrea Pineros (FR)
 Andrea Pineros ’ work is based on the themes of structure and lightness. With his background in design, he is inspired by urban constructions such as bridges, towers, stairs, and even transport networks. As he observes Paris, its inhabitants, its intrinsic rhythms and movements, he considers the thousands of daily trips that form networks and links. Pineros transcribes these ideas into jewelry, focusing on the essential concepts of full and empty, tension between links, proportion and equilibrium, growth and chaos. The wire he uses to create his designs serves as a pencil does for an architect: this thread which can stretch out, multiply, and fill an entire space allows him to express his creative universe. His pieces remind us that the preciousness of an object resides not only in its material but in its esprit. Through his jewelry, Pineros reduces the monumental in scale to make it accessible and finally tame.
LOOT 2013 Florence Croisier
Florence Croisier (FR)
Florence Croisier composes with the body, catching the variants of composition that movement can offer. Born in Geneva, Croisier graduated from Geneva’s School of Decorative Arts and worked in Paris as a designer or maker for different companies until 1999, when she started her own collection. Three years later, she began working with titanium. This material’s durability, hypoallergenic property, and capacity to take on beautiful colors allowed Croisier to fully express her creativity—and titanium’s lightness allows the wearer to pile on as many pieces as desired while retaining complete freedom of movement. Croisier started this work using a sculptural approach, but later began to use titanium wire as a kind of pencil permitting her to draw directly with the material. Others of Croisier’s pieces are assembled from an accumulation of repetitive elements organized into a structure that is sometimes completely random, sometimes inspired by nature.
LOOT 2013 Fabien Ifirès
Fabien Ifirès

Self-taught designer Fabien Ifirès apprenticed in luxury saddlery and handmade shoe-making workshops. He decided to create his own label in 2010 in collaboration with Michaël Vandewielle. His mastery of traditional sewing techniques allows him to explore all the possibilities of leather, his favorite material, and offer pieces that are precious and unique due to his meticulous creative process. All of Ifirès’ jewels are entirely handmade according to traditional saddlery techniques, with very high quality leathers sourced from the best European tanneries.

Hungarian designer Janka Juhos was born into a family of artists, and so her future career was marked out well in advance. After receiving her BFA in 2010, Juhos founded her own jewelry design company, JUJJ.

LOOT 2013: Yoko Shimizu
Yoko Shimizu
Japanese designer Yoko Shimizu studied at Alchimia Contemporary Jewelry School in Florence, Italy, and chose to stay there to establish her jewelry practice. Living in a foreign country has heightened Shimizu’s consciousness of her cultural background and natural sense of expression and aesthetics. Subtleness and simplicity, fragility and vigor, harmony and tension are all important to her work. The theme of her collection in resin is transformation, which is manifest in Shimizu’s exploration of the mutability of forms, materials, and colors. Pieces of wood are alchemized into pieces of resin, and the surface of wood is transferred onto the surface of the resin. The metamorphosis of wood to resin, of natural to artificial, of opaque to transparent, and the continuous changes that occur when the jewels are worn on the body … all of these inspire Shimizu’s work.
LOOT 2013: Michihiro Sato
Michihiro Sato
Michihiro Sato became interested in contemporary jewelry when he was an arts education student in Japan. After his graduation, he traveled to the University of Pforzheim in Germany to research the field. This was the beginning of a very long stay in Germany, where he gained valuable experiences and perspectives as a citizen, an employee of several advertising agencies, and finally a freelance artist before he left the country in 2002 to study jewelry in Oslo, Norway. Most importantly, in Germany Sato encountered the philosophy of Buddhism, which has influenced his work. Sato is currently living and working in Osaka, Japan as a freelance jewelry artist and teacher. He creates his jewels using various materials, including paper, silver and resin. His experiences living in different cultures have had a great impact on his creations. For Sato, something transient is beautiful if he has the insight to perceive something permanent
