I get invited to this even, but it was a little bite short of time… Good to see and may be hearing something about it from Montserrat, how it looks etc, so may be I will get a second chance to participant in this next time they will arrange it.
What a beautiful pieces and patterns… I can see the inspiration by nature.
"Inspiration for my jewellery is vast, and whether I am studying repetitive patterns found in nature or observing everyday objects from the past or present, my aim is to create work that takes on its own identity. These shapes often trigger a memory of an existing form for the viewer or owner and vary greatly from person to person, one form taking on many guises. An antler? A branch? An internal organ? Though each series I produce is titled, separate pieces are not, which seems to encourage this process. Each piece of work I make always belongs to a series. The pieces are not worn nor necessarily shown as part of their original family but it is through the making process that these groups emerge. A Fine Art background greatly influences the way my work is produced as I start with the working and reworking of drawings and collages. For my brooches in particular, these initial drawings play a major part in the look and feel of the final product. My drawings are etched into brass plates which I then use to emboss onto sterling silver sheets. The silver sheets are then turned into brooches. My work is governed by this process and it is during these drawings that quantity, scale and techniques such as embossing and oxidising are finalised."
I got these photos from Thomas today, after our meeting and I also order some of his wonderful art pieces as some kind of Christmas gift to myself.
As I have written before, I’m so glad and grateful when people from all over the world are sending me photos!
It’s always nice to have and I like to add it to my blog, so others also can share what’s going on….
Thank you, thank you Thomas! We will meet again...
Hello Paula , It is just Thomas writing from the Konstepidemin. Thank you for coming by today, and bringing your friend Yanina along- it was very kind of you!!
Not forgetting that I had to send you some photos............here are 2 recently from the Bergrummet (sitting outside with my friend Javier- a guest artist from Spain). Along with this are 3 extra images I found in my folders (taken while I was in a residency in Kemijarvi, Finland this year) - in case the other ones you don't want to use .
I've also reminded myself, that the 8 knitted coconut tarts are now yours for reserve- so not to worry . If you have friends and family who would like anything from the show, feel free to let me know (so I can reserve them right away!).
Mizue Ogiso also show amazing drawings, I have to say that I like this really, really much and that this couple make my day, tougher with other nice meetings and nice things with my friend Janina… We had a wonderful (even if it was rainy…) “kulturlördag”/"culture Saturday".
I want one of these wall pieces!
Mitsuhiro Ikeda ”Ike” is doing very interesting video installations in the public space, using windows in the city room to show his art pieces… Very, very good!
I have a Master of Fine Arts in applied arts and crafts degree, I’m curios about life and I like a lot of things, everyday life things transformed into art is one of my interesting…
Hanging around with friends, travel, reading a good/interesting book is doing my life good.
I will have this blog to showing the times between, the life, the process and all kind of inspiration sources for my art work.
I’m working mostly with body related art; jewellery art, but I also lecturing and working with photo and enamel… My focus is on recycling material in different shapes.
