Elisabetta Carozzi

Italia

Mi piace pensare a me come a un terreno, un campo e al mio lavoro come a una coltivazione, un raccolto. La qualità della terra è data dalle origini, genitori, famiglia, incontri: tutte le esperienze si sono sedimentate e hanno dato nutrimento. Lavoro alle mie collane come a un progetto, una raccolta. Come tale si può guardare da diversi punti di vista, episodi distinti di un'unica storia, un racconto. Una ricerca del bello come antidoto alla pesantezza del quotidiano. Ho iniziato con la misura. Il mio punto di vista per esprimere eleganza pulizia leggerezza. La trasparenza, il neutro come punto di forza, collane da portare, sempre. Sono attratta da altre forme e dal colore, non voglio precludermi altre possibilità, altri toni, mi sento libera di sperimentare.

I like to think of myself as a land, a field and my work as a cultivation, a harvest. The quality of the land is given by the origins, parents, family, meetings: all the experiences have settled and have given nourishment. I work on my necklaces like a project, a collection. As such it can be viewed from different points of view, distinct episodes of a single story, a tale. A search for beauty as an antidote to the heaviness of everyday life. I started with measure. My point of view to express elegance cleanliness lightness. Transparency, the neutral as a strong point, necklaces to wear, always. I am attracted to other shapes and colors, I don't want to preclude other possibilities, other tones, I feel free to experiment.

Anna Retico

Italia

Affascinata dalle innumerevoli forme della natura, della chimica e della geometria, appassionata e instancabile ricercatrice di materiali inusuali e accattivanti cerco di riproporre nei miei gioielli le emozioni e gli stati d’animo che tutto ciò mi suggerisce quotidianamente. Usando leggerezza e ironia propongo oggetti indossabili realizzati con tecniche tradizionali o con tecniche del tutto nuove, dove la manualità rimane comunque l’elemento principale. Ne risultano prodotti a sorpresa, particolari, con un’anima mista e in evoluzione, mai scontata, mai seriale.

Emanuele Cannoletta

Ciò che amo del mio lavoro è il silenzio.
Mi piace la quiete che avvolge il mio workshop mentre sono all'opera, il lento movimento delle mie mani che danno forma alle mie opere.
Gioco a mischiare i metalli pregiati con i materiali più improbabili nel tentativo di sfidare ogni volta il concetto di "prezioso", affiancando tecniche artigianali ad estetiche contemporanee al fine di creare gioielli ibridi che vibrano irrequieti nel tentativo di spezzare quell'equilibrio ottenuto dalla fusione di opposti.
Mi considero un artigiano alla costante ricerca di ciò che si cela al termine della frase "cosa succederebbe se provassi a fare.."

International Jewellery Competition Silver

Only 11 days left to submit your work for the 28. International Jewellery Competition “Silver”!

Deadline: 1 April 2019

(Works must reach the Gallery within this deadline - the date on the postmark is irrelevant.)
Also, take into account, please, that works sent from abroad may get stuck at the Customs which causes delays in their arrival at the Gallery.
This year it’s also possible to submit the works directly at the AMBERIF Fair in Gdansk (Poland). We’re waiting to meet you and receive your works at the Gallery stand C 603.

The Entry Form and Competition Terms & Regulations are available at http://silver.legnica.eu/en/?Competitions:SILVER

As always, winners can expect (not only) silver awards.

As usual, the Competition is the main event of Legnica SILVER Festival, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary. We’re preparing a congratulations postcard for the Festival in the form of a film and we’d like to invite to this project everyone who has ever taken part in the Jewellery Competition, been to Legnica during SILVER Festival or has been connected with the Festival in any other way. We’re asking you to record a short movie with your smartphone, in which you can simply give your greetings and congratulations to the Festival or say a few words more, for example:


- how you’re associated with SILVER,
- what you remember about your stay in Legnica,
- any special memories,
- funny stories,
- people you met in Legnica,
- friends you made there,
- anything else you’ve always wanted to tell the Festival but never had a chance.

We’re looking forward to receiving your competition works and your films! (Deadlines are the same).

Your Silver Team from the Gallery of Art in Legnica

PS. Submission of a film is equivalent to expressing agreement for the film to be displayed publically and distributed together with other materials promoting the Gallery of Art in Legnica and Legnica Jewellery Festival.

I make jewellery because it makes me feel balanced. And because of my urge to communicate.
Jewellery is contagion. Thoughts and feelins pass from the maker to the viewer just like viruses.
Wearability and perfection are not relevant to me. They may happen , but please don't seek for them in my work.

From a young age, it was clear that I wanted to make a type of jewelry that was not merely ornamental. The jewel is my way of expressing myself artistically with total liberdat, the only condition is that it is related and can be used by a person. I usually work with series, I never know how many pieces, I stop when I think that I have nothing else to say on the subject. I try to create a symbiosis between the jewel and its bearer, so that the two become rich. I feel like a filter trying to express the nuances of the world from my point of view. Few contemporary jewelers come from a family tradition and I was lucky enough to learn the trade with my father and now it is my daughter Elena who learns from me, I feel like the link of a very old chain that transmits ancestral knowledge.

The research is based on the relation between different materials and on how they can converse and enhance each other. The contrast is essential, organic shapes combined with simple figures, poor materials with precious ones, light with darkness. Creating a suggestion in the observer without using figurative elements provokes a wider range of possibilities and reflections. For this reason the creation process becomes extremely important, the spontaneity of the form and the composition are fundamental, the imperfection becomes strength and the fragment infuses a feeling of completeness.
The jewel is born from the transformation of wood into coal, the metamorphosis of the material imparts value to the object, telling a story of unleashed shape shifting potential.
