Astonish HOLY ROCK - MJW 2018

Child of the elements.
You connect us to the past and our memories. You give us silence and peace. Hypnotized, we gaze at you when exploring your inner worlds. Born from time and the forces of nature you are everlasting and the matter of our making.
Every Rock is holy, indeed. From stones as silent observers, we make valuable experiences, we communicate through our making. Find the seven makers of ASTONISH for the third consecutive year at SCHMUCK, to pay hommage/tribute to ‘THE HOLY ROCK’ in you and me.
So let us celebrate together Gems and Jewels.

« SCENES OF THE MIND »
« My work is a means of expression, articulating ideas, transforming thoughts and emotions, shaping my psyche into jewelry.
This creative journey provides me with peace of mind and helps me improve myself. Pursuing and discovering new paths, experimenting with different colors and materials, is part of a process for bringing to life pieces that hold a special meaning to me as an artist and to the wearer.
My new project is about inner “Transformation”; transformation of the soul.
I created a jewelry collection that symbolises the transformation of positive and
negative thoughts that we are having during the day.
The continuous stream of thoughts, via meditation, gradually fades away, providing serenity and tranquility to the mind and soul. Through silence and observation of my thoughts, there comes an understanding, a need for change and self-improvement. »

NIGHTLIGHT SKIN  STATEMENT
« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the races/ cultures/ subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to create his signature, by engraving, pouncing and printing, he creates a new dimension to the material.
After researching different kinds of sub-and material-cultures/ religion/ races he started to experiment with skins. By confronting those materials together, we can translate it as an extension between all human society.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self- expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference between the sexes/ humans/ religions and cultures.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. »

Expo at Beyond Fashion Carolina Apolonia - "Of Things Unknown but Longed for Still"  *

Carolina Apolonia - Brooch Unique piece -Silver, wood, paint, steel: Carolina Apolonia – Brooch Unique piece -Silver, wood, paint, steel

« My work reflects my intimate world. I often construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, and cities that mirror my dreams and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past or people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out, and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries.
My work is about finding refuge and freedom.
I am inspired by the everyday rhythms in life; how we move, interact, build, love and heal.
And I’m fascinated by shelters, industrial construction work, and the rules of aerodynamics.
My most recent works show a slight change in shape and form. I wanted to create pieces that represent movement, or rather, the ability to fly.
The collection as a whole shows my view on the ever-changing dynamics between the needs of the individual and the safety, strength and demands of the collective. »

Side expo by Juan Harnie (BE) and Ana Margarida Carvalho (PT)
Ana Margarida Carvalho and Juan Harnie got paired in The Contemporary Jewelry Exchange 2016. Selected jewellers from around the world participated in this project and were paired to find a common interest or theme and make a piece for one another.
Both Ana and Juan look for beauty in things that are not necessarily beautiful to others. Combining plastics and metal is one of their common interests and neither of them shies away from using bright colours.
The pieces presented in this exhibition are similar to the two pieces they originally made for The Exchange. And even though both of them have their own interpretation of beauty and where to find it, their pieces accompany each other really well.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan Hens – the HIGHWAY of success !

Jonathan Hens

I discovered his works at fall 2013 during PARIS – CIRCUITS BIJOUX , at the exhibition ‘Precieux Passages’ at Bibliothèque Forney. A first « face to face » with a (very) STRONG creation !

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……
This is not the « Route of Success », it’s an HIGHWAY !!!

« After having researched different kinds of sub-and material-cultures, Jonathan Hens constructs with his own culture of tin while exploring the different qualities of the metal, making himself a master of his practice. By engraving, pouncing and printing, he develops a new dimension to the material. This results in graphic surfaces combined with archaic shapes and volumes. Hen’s pieces, beautiful as they are, are not indented as mere objects, but as points of recognition in a world of Tribal Ravers. They cross time and cultures. They are an ode to the pleasures of the now. »

Linnéa Eriksson and Jelizaveta Suska’s work are urban and human, they are dealing with time and materiality in different ways and their working processes are updating jewellery traditions.

Jiro KAMATA

« Jewellery is an object of value. This is the single most important notion in my work as an artist-jeweller.

I make jewellery from old camera lenses. The lenses I use have already retired from active duty, covered in a light layer of dust, sitting in some obscure corner in a camera shop. But Imagine if we were able to talk with these lenses what great stories they might tell us! They have witnessed so many memorable and precious moments from people’s lives.

An investigation of the meaning of ‘value’ is integral in the work of goldsmiths such as myself. What is the real meaning of value for human beings?
This question, always present in my mind, is what drives me to keep
creating jewellery.«   Jiro Kamata 2012

« Using different materials – gold, silver or silk – to get her message across, she creates appealing necklaces that snugly drape around the wearer’s neck and delight her with their soft feel and subtle shimmer that is shown off to maximum advantage when in motion. »
“Those who don’t connect with others don’t exist“, says Ria Lins. This jewelry designer’s creations revolve around themes like ”contact” or “comfort”, and her most important source of inspiration – and one of repeated amazement to her – are human relationships. Inspired by her desire to restore broken relationships, she creates pieces that display marks of repair, mending or embroidery. She regards a finished piece as an expressive medium because its not only a wearable piece of jewelry, but also speaks a language of its own that conveys her ideas and feelings to others.

Mill Valley, California, USA–Art Jewelry Forum (AJF) is pleased to announce the five finalists for its 2016 Artist Award. The finalists will exhibit their work with Sofia Björkman, from Platina, during the international art jewelry fair Schmuck, in Munich, Germany, from February 24 through March 1, 2016. 
The Five finalists for AJF’s 2016 Artist Award are:
Lynn Batchelder –  Carina Shoshtary — Seth Papac — Aric Verrastro — and Timothy Veske-McMahon.
Finalists were chosen from the largest group of Artist Award applicants to date–151 artists representing 35 countries–and judged on originality, depth of concept, continuity of design, and quality of craftsmanship. This year’s jurors were Philip Clarke of New Zealand, inaugural director of Objectspace; 2014 Artist Award winner Seulgi Kwon, from South Korea; and AJF board member and collector Susan Kempin, who is from the United States.
  The unrestricted cash prize of $7500, generously funded by Susan Beech and Karen and Michael Rotenberg, will be awarded to one of the five finalists. AJF would like to thank Sofia Björkman and PLATINA for providing a showcase for the winner and finalist during Schmuck and donating the gallery’s profits to AJF. The winner will be announced in February 2016.

« My studio practice relies on a drawing process where forms and ideas develop intuitively through the initial exploration of a line on paper. In these works industrial steel becomes transparent and delicate as cuts made with the jeweler’s saw reflect the quality of a line drawn by hand … I am constantly trying to capture small moments of contrast where control and imperfection collide. »

  »My work starts with an intuitive experimental play with found materials, which usually come from my immediate surroundings. In the process of experimenting, the materials are being thoroughly transformed; the original source cannot be identified anymore … My jewelry pieces may appear like artifacts of a past civilization, fossils from another planet, or the ornaments of fabled beings. »

« Life in Southern California, with its unreal sunsets, light-bleached buildings, and vestiges of 70s style, brought my memory to a saturation point, forming crystals of experience … These merged into objects with varying physical relationships to the body–at the scale of architecture, at the scale of jewelry, and in between. Utilizing the vocabulary of jewelry and architecture, space and place are explored–from the past to the present, from the personal to the cliché, from the obvious to the mysterious. »

« I have recently been displaced from living in a city, which has left an emptiness in my life. The creation of each piece has become a method to fill the void. The forms are architectural, modular, constructed from steel, becoming allegorical representations of the energy of a thriving, vibrant environment … As jewelry, the body completes the piece as people fill and give life to architectural spaces, expressing the vitality and connection I feel toward the urban human experience. »

« We seek out and delve into mirrors for clarifying affirmation but, in truth, are met with a foreign body … This perceived closeness of similarity and familiarity is a deception–fictitious shorthand we use in identifying within society and relationships. If the act of definition is a loss of information, is it possible to create a loss-less object? »
