Francesca Mo

Italia

 

Architetto designer milanese, è da anni nella gioielleria d’autore con successo. Il minimalismo e l'arte povera sono alla base del suo “alfabeto artistico” corredato dalla sapienza nell’equilibrio di colori, forme, materiali e da una quasi maniacale precisione nella realizzazione dei suoi oggetti.
Filo conduttore di tutte le sue creazioni è l'immaginifico infantile che la mano adulta riesce a raccontare senza per questo mortificarlo e tanto meno omologarlo.
La sua carriera in questo campo è scandita da mostre e dalle sue collezioni.

Iliana Tosheva

Bulgarian-born multi-disciplinary professional artist and jewellery designer who currently lives and works in London, United Kingdom. After a long career in Modern Languages, I opted for a career change and following my strong interest in contemporary and applied arts, I switched into designing and creating contemporary jewellery. I currently split my time between creating original large-scale abstract oil paintings and designing and creating both fine and mixed media contemporary jewellery. I work in sterling silver, fine silver, 18K golds, copper, copper mesh and lead-free vitreous enamel. My signature pieces are mostly created by either reticulation or etching or by means of manipulating copper mesh coated in multiple layers of lead-free vitreous enamel. Nature inspired, my body of work is very raw and organic and is mimicking nature at its best. Most of my pieces come in small series of works that are informed by my fascination with and exploration of a huge variety of organic shapes and forms and all are marked for my minimalist approach to my creative process, often relying mainly on mark making and chancing the outcome that is often surprisingly different from the initial idea. Aiming at creating quite a dramatic effect, most of my pieces result in seemingly ill-balanced or non-harmonious wearable objects that complete in a unique way the wearer’s personality and looks.

Gianni Riva

Italia

Gianni Riva ha una lunga esperienza nell'oreficeria classica, maturata a partire dalla formazione di tradizione Valenzana e sviluppata sul campo, quotidianamente nel suo laboratorio a Borgonovo Val Tidone. Si avvicina al gioiello di ricerca dall'incontro e il confrontarsi con molti colleghi, entrando a far parte di AGC. Dal 2014 dedica parte del suo tempo alla sperimentazione indagando i confini delle tecniche orafe tradizionali.

Conversazioni:  -  Gianni un uomo affabile, sincero, disponibile. Abbiamo spesso discusso sui suoi lavori, così è nato il titolo della sua collezione sperimentale. Conversazione: dire la propria, esprimere nuovi percorsi personali, desiderare altri mezzi espressivi, sperimentare per creare. Approfondendo un argomento di conversazione, si arriva al confronto. L'argomento è la sperimentazione, in particolare sulla microfusione alla ricerca della qualità, la ricerca formale prosegue nella collezione "Conversazioni": dialogo, confronto e sfida. Continua... (E.Negroni, Borgonovo Val Tidone)

Gianni Riva has a long experience in classic goldsmithing, gained from the training of Italian goldsmithing school of Valenza and developed in the field, daily in his laboratory in Borgonovo Val Tidone. He approaches the research in contemporary jewellery by meeting and comparing himself with many colleagues, becoming part of AGC. Since 2014 he has been dedicating part of his time to experimentation by investigating the boundaries of traditional goldsmith techniques.

Conversation series:  -  Gianni is an agreeable, sincere and helpful man, besides being a clever goldsmith. We often talked about his works, so the title of his experimental collection was born. Conversation: saying your own, expressing new personal paths, wishing other ways for expression, experimenting to create. Going deeper into a topic of conversation leads to confrontation. The topic is experimentation, in particular searching for limits on micro-casting, formal research continues in the "Conversazioni" collection: dialogue, confrontation and challenge. To be continued... (E.Negroni, Borgonovo Val Tidone)

Carla Riccoboni

Italia

Carla Riccoboni approda all’arte orafa attraverso la grafica ed il design. Filo conduttore della sua ricerca è l'attenzione rivolta al segno, al ritmo e alle scritture, risolte in termini di raffinate sequenze geometriche come in ALPHABET o tese al recupero di antichi repertori, come i tracciati di origine arabo-bizantina della collezione VENEZIA e i simboli archetipi della collezione MADREFORME. Pioniera del gioiello autoprodotto, dal 1987 inizia a commercializzare direttamente le sue collezioni in Europa ricevendo importanti riconoscimenti: premi, pubblicazioni, mostre, ecc. Nel 2007 alla chiusura dell'officina Angelo Tovo di Vicenza, insieme a Nadir Stringa, recupera da sicura distruzione circa 2500 madreforme, attrezzature base necessarie per realizzare lo "stampato", tipica lavorazione della storia orafa del territorio. Dallo studio di questo materiale nasce la collezione MADREFORME, tuttora in evoluzione. Da sempre interessata al tema della serialità, Carla Riccoboni collabora con AGC (Ass. Gioiello Contemporaneo) dove dal 2011 al 2014 ha coordinato una ricerca di gruppo pubblicata nel libro MULTIPLI SINGOLARI ( ed. Design Experience). Carla Riccoboni vive e lavora a Bassano del Grappa (VI)

 

Carla Riccoboni approaches goldsmith's art through graphics and design.The underlying theme of her research is the focus on the sign, rhythm and writings, solved in terms of refined geometric sequences such in ALPHABET or aimed at the recovery of old repertories, such as the paths of Arabic-byzantine origin of the VENEZIA collection and the archetypal symbols of the MADREFORME collection. Pioneer of the self-produced jewel, as from 1987 she begins to commercialize directly her collections in Europe, receiving major awards: prizes, publications, exhibitions. In 2007, upon the closure of the workshop Angelo Tovo of Vicenza, along with Nadir Stringa, she recovers from certain destruction about 2500 madreforme, the basic equipment needed to realize the "printed", a typical work of the of the goldsmith history of the Vicenza area. From the study of this material, the MADREFORME collection is born and is still evolving. Always interested in the topic of seriality, Carla Riccoboni collaborates with AGC (Ass. Contemporary Jewel) where from 2011 to 2014 she coordinated a group research published in the book MULTIPLI SINGOLARI ( ed. Design Experience). Carla Riccoboni lives and works in Bassano del Grappa (VI)

Michael Hofmeyer

Australia / Italy

The pleasure for me in making and designing is through improvisation and experimentation.

Together with Goldsmithing I also work with opaque and transparent vitreous enamels.

My most recent project ‘FRAGILITY SERIES’ takes inspiration from the beauty and colour of the hidden worlds of coral reefs, particularly fragile in these times of climate change.

Grazie Giancarlo

Caro Giancarlo, dalla ultima sua e-mail ad AGC del 9 settembre.

…….spero tutto bene per TE , l’AGC , tutto il DIRETTIVO e i SOCI tutti.

Personalmente vi penso pur non partecipando per i miei problemi di salute (…) con Stima…Simpatia…e Amicizia…… ciao GianCarlo

P.S - buon lavoro

Ciao Maestro, ti ricordiamo con affetto e stima, ricordiamo le tue parole verso AGC con le quali ci hai sempre sollecitato sul significato di qualità e ricerca che dovevano essere i punti fondamentali del “progettare cultura” come ci avevi detto nell’ultima assemblea soci.

Grazie GianCarlo per averci sempre incoraggiato ad approfondire sperimentazione ed innovazione, tutto ciò che completava ogni tua opera. Grazie, per la tua preziosa presenza nell’Associazione sin dalla sua fondazione.

 


 

 

Dear Giancarlo, from your last e-mail to AGC on 9 September.

…… .I hope all is well for YOU, the AGC, all the BOARD and all MEMBERS.

I think of you even though I’m not present due to my health problems (...) with esteem ... respect ... and friendship ... Bye, GianCarlo

P.S – All the best

Hello Master, we remember you with great affection and esteem, we remember your kind words for AGC, with which you have always urged us on the meaning of quality and research. As you stated in the last members’ meeting, these are the fundamental points of "designing culture".

Thank you GianCarlo for always encouraging us to look further into experimentation and innovation, two aspects that were always present in all your works. Thank you for your precious presence in the Association since its foundation.
