East Meets West — Exquisite Treasures from the Aga Khan Collection

Since classical antiquity, the mutual fascination between the Orient and
the Occident has repeatedly brought about new art forms. In the Art Deco

period, for example, exotic ornamental designs and calligraphies from Chi-
na, Japan or the Middle East lent themselves perfectly to fulfilling people's

desire for decorative and unusual luxury. Also, the 1920s were characterized
by technological progress and rapid societal changes, both of which were

reflected in the jewellery and the arts of that era in the shape of exuber-
antly exotic ornamentation and colours, wedded to clear-cut shapes and

austere materials. The vanity and cigarette cases, clocks and watches, plus
the pieces of jewellery, from the Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan
Collection bear eloquent witness to this. The collection originated when,

one Christmas, the Prince gave his wife a superbly ornamented case by Car-
tier as a gift. This was the beginning of what evolved into a comprehensive

collection comprising creations by Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, Boucheron,

Lacloche Frères and the selfsame Cartier company, all of which evoke associ-
ations with glamorous dinner parties in exotically decorated apartments or

smoky night clubs.
A magnificent book about the collection was published in New York in 2017
under the title of »Jeweled Splendors of the Art Deco Era. The Prince and
Princess Dadruddin Aga Khan Collection«.

Di Giancarlo Montebello gli “anelli OVER” in collaborazione con Matteo Bonafede
Cette exposition se voulait un hommage aux combattants de la Grande Guerre, mais au fil de sa construction elle s'est ouverte à de multiples autres dimensions. Défi s'il en est, il s'agissait d'inviter des créateurs contemporains à réfléchir sur la place et le rôle du bijou dans la Grande Guerre, puis de mettre en miroir leurs propositions et les pratiques d'artisanat de tranchée.

Les créateurs qui ont proposé des pièces sont une vingtaine, ils viennent de Belgique, d'Allemagne mais aussi de Roumanie, d'Arménie ou encore d'Israël… et tous se sont sentis particulièrement bouleversés par le thème. Certains avaient déjà un travail qui trouvait sa pleine expression dans le sujet proposé, d'autres ont créé spécialement. A leur côté, des collectionneurs passionnés qui nous font la grâce d'offrir en partage des objets anciens lentement collectés… Et alors agit la magie de la rencontre !

Vous pourrez ainsi découvrir : Reinhard Hampel/ Véronique Cartier-Hampel (Allemagne), Artak Tadevosyan (Arménie), Jurgen Herman, Marie Lechat, Siegfried De Buck et Nadine Sizaire/Viviane Bechoux (Belgique), Leslie Baron, Sundara Dufour, Jean Gazdac, Géraldine Jannot, Hélène Jeandot, Claire Kientzi, Marie-Josée Morato et Catherine Sumatra (France), GianCarlo Montebello et Tommaso Tosiani (Italie), Sara Shahak (Israël) et Andreia Popescu (Roumanie).

Le Pôle Bijou Galerie est situé en plein centre ville de Baccarat, en bord de Meurthe, dans un cadre privilégié verdoyant et à proximité immédiate des commerces (à 200m), de zone de stationnement et des attraits touristiques de la ville (église St-Rémy, Parc de la Roseraie…)

The exhibition illustrate the activities of study, research and individual and collective learning that takes place daily in the classrooms and laboratories of LAO.
However, every jewel, every design, reflects the author's capacity of elaboration, his personal preferences, his tastes, his culture of origin, but overall the enthusiasm and the creativity specific of each student at any age.
The school, with its teachers and instructors, its programs and its organizational structures, gives students the chance and the opportunity to improve their skills and knowledge. The school does not promise the sky, only indicates roads.

Granulation – An intensive course on the craft of ancient joining techniques

The goal of the workshop is to teach the basic skills of ancient joining techniques and the strategies used to make artistic artefacts in the past with an eye on using these skills to design and fabricate contemporary objects. While the technique of granulation requires long-term repetition to develop proficiency and mastery, the basic skills and insights gathered during the course will prepare the participant to continue in autonomy.

Language lesson: Italian, English, French



David Loepp was born in 1951 and grew up in Wyoming. In 1969 he moved to Paris. Three years later he moved to Sicily where he apprenticed as a goldsmith and sculpture. Fascinated by ancient jewellery, he worked primarily with the exponents of “archeo-gioielleria” in Messina and Rome where he opened a workshop in 1996. He has worked in experimental archaeology for the past two decades in collaboration with the University of Rome la Sapienza, Italy's National Research Council and the Antiquitates Center for Experimental Archaeology in Civitella Cesa.
Long-term projects in experimental archeology include:
The refining of gold and thermodynamic characterization of the process based on evidence from Sardis and the interpretation of textual sources;
Characterization of the color phenomena of shakudo;
Ancient strategies for the reduction of chalcopyrite ores and the winning of copper;
Joining methods in antiquity.

Course code: DL.W
Length of course: from 9 to 13 July, 2018
Total hours: 40
Participants: Maximum 10
Total fees, VAT included: Euro 1.400

They hold together, connect, link, merge as well as they control, check and supervise.
We play with the image on different levels: In a technical, and philosophical way.
Bridges are the result of human efforts to relate and connect two topographic locations permanently said Georg Simmel in "Bridge and Door". I would like to include fixed installed draw- or swing bridges and skywalks, balconies and stairs as well.
In addition, ladders are interesting for our considerations even if they are only temporary bridges. Just because of that reason, they come very close to the character of brooches.
Brooches in their original function as fibulas are connecting different parts of textiles and have a temporary character. You can fix and remove them easily. In this case, the connected textiles separate themselves and the brooch gets the character of an independent object.

In the workshop we approach the topic from different directions:
1) Bridges as an idea and creative template for brooches. Everyone brings the idea of his/her favourite bridge. Spontaneous models will be made with the limited material, drawings, sketches.
2) We investigate connections as temporary attachments between different materials or objects. Experiments with the mechanism of fastenings. Examination of relevant connections in everyday objects.
3) Design of a brooch with an integrated fastening as a part of the independent brooch object. We study traditional craftsmen mechanisms and explore extraordinary solutions.


About Tasso Mattar:
Studied sociology at the University of Cologne (1969-75) and jewellery design at the University of Applied Arts at Pforzheim (1975-79). He was well noted for his thematic exhibitions. We remember his bone exhibition " jewellery in a butchers " 1986, which became a legendary jewellery event. This presentation of the "precious" in the "trivial world" is a model of Mattar's special aesthetical approach which includes everyday objects as well as everyday life. His artwork from bone, concrete, soapstone, amber, granite etc. are collected by museums and private collections. He directed workshops in Singapore, Israel, Finland, France, Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg. He lives and works in Artà/Mallorca, a small village in Spain.

Attention is a shape.
A contemporary dialogue on feeling, making, observing — in depth.


The contemporary jewellery exhibition "L'attenzione è una forma/Attention is a shape” will open next Friday, June 1st at 6.30pm at the Ipazzi Factory gallery in Pisa.

The exhibit is conceived as a journey into the discovery of the works of nine contemporary jewellers led by the suggestions coming from the poetry of Paola Loreto.

The concept is curated by Eliana Negroni, a designer who studies the multiple approaches of studio art-jewelry and is committed to a number of exhibition projects related to the Italian association for contemporary jewellery (AGC).

The purpose is to engage poetry as a parallel art, focusing on a key element: the idea of attention.

The poem “L'attenzione è una forma/Attention is a shape,” from the collection “case | spogliamenti” by Paola Loreto (Nino Aragno Editions, 2016), has been a way into all the tones and the emotional states connected with the creative process in contemporary jewellery.

Negroni studied the compositions by Paola Loreto, who is an Italian poet and American Literature professor at the University of Milan, and highlighted a series of extraordinarily intense fragments that would guide the investigation of the jewellery works – among them, the works by Stenia Scarselli, a resident artist at the gallery, together with an accurate selection of works by international jewellers:
Clara Del Papa, who was born in Venezuela and lives in Italy; Fabiana Gadano, from Argentina; Jamie Chung and Joo Hyung Park, from S. Korea; Helmi Lindblom and Wiebke Pandikow, from Finland; Steffi Götze, from Germany; and Sergio Spivach and Stefano Spivach, who transform their Australian opals into unique pieces in their workshop in Udine, Italy.

The works are very different from one another, but they are all knit by a gentle thread: "the attention". It is the extreme care of each detail that becomes real emotion and rises from the work of the jewellers.

The gallery on-stage setting is curated by Stenia Scarselli together with the group Arte della Memoria, a cultural association which is at the core of Ipazzi Factory. The resulting artistic mix makes the exhibition a unique event in the multifaceted landscape of experimental jewellery.

"MIGRANTES" is a project of Contemporary Jewelry that addresses this theme in the present context. Working from different approaches, but with a common goal, four designers (two chileans, an argentine and an uruguayan) unite to put together this exhibition, telling from their own spirit, their vision of migrating: the movements that animals have had to do, due to the disaster of the environment; the original peoples facing the conquering opressors; the experience of living in a country where you have not been born and to which you emigrate. The exhibition refers to the new migrants and how we must talk of equality of rights and opportunities.
