Con Giancarlo Montebello - "from Calder to Koons”

Before the dawn of windshields, Man Ray sought out durable lenses to wear while driving. (Diane Venet, a jewelry collector who guest curated a 2011 show at New York's Museum of Arts and Design, says he was “always breaking his glasses and he loved to drive fast.”) Man Ray and his collaborator, the Italian goldsmith GianCarlo Montebello, spent months in the early 1970s perfecting a design: the Optic-Topic gold mask, which features a dense network of pinholes where one would expect to find cutouts for eyes. Although a few small dots wouldn't seem to do the trick, Venet, who owns the gold mask, has revealed, “You see through them as well as with glasses.”

Another GEM Montebello collaboration, Pendants Pending (1970) are more fondly remembered as “the lampshade earrings” because they allude to Man Ray's 1919 spiral lampshade. Forever immortalized by French actress Catherine Deneuve, the artist designed them to be placed over the ears, so as not to weigh down the wearer's lobes with five-and-a-half-inch spirals.

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.

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

The exhibition illustrates the activities of study, research and individual and collective learning that takes place daily in the classrooms and laboratories of LAO.
The annual Degree Show at Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School featuring a selection of works realized by students from the specializations offered at LAO:

Jewellery Making 1st, 2nd and 3rd year
Jewellery Design 1st and 2nd year
CAD
Engraving
Stone setting
Enamelling


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.
