I DREAM JEWELLERY NICOLA HEIDEMANN

I dream of jewellery and about jewellery. I am always eager to know what is developing – what is “cooking” – in the constant dialogue I have with Nature. I do not really feel myself to be a creator in my own right. More a collector. I collect allusions, impressions, associations. A piece of wood can excite me, a shadow on a stone, or light glittering on water. It is the incomplete things that fascinate me. The as yet unfathomed mysteries. They give me and the beholders of my objects space for the imagination to start working. Ideally, those who look upon my objects will remember – as I do – a glorious day spent by a lake, a walk in the woods, or a pebble.

Tectonic plates, volcanoes and glaciers have determined the shape of our planet. The conditions for life on Earth are dependent upon these prior conditions. We have the possibility of cultivating and forming the planet Earth, and of transforming landscapes. But only to a certain extent. We should always be aware that our life is not infinite, that in the face of Earth’s geological developments we are so small and insignificant, and that Nature does not belong to us – no, we belong to Nature! When we consider how old our planet is and what fundamental changes it has undergone in the course of the millennia, then our small-minded conflicts over property, religion and power begin to appear very insignificant. With my jewellery I wish to express this feeling of closeness to Nature.

I love the tactile quality of a stone on the beach. This is the quality that I try to impart to my pieces of jewellery. So that whoever wears my jewellery can always take pleasure in stroking it, in fingering it. A tactile memory, one might say. My works always have several dimensions. A form and a surface – but also a hidden inner life. These hidden parts can only be imagined. They glister forth from the inside without immediately explaining themselves.

Goldsmith-Designer-Wax-caster since 2006, I've been working for seven years at the Alberta Vita goldsmith's Studio learning the techniques of Padua's jewellery School. After that, I followed various technical courses and different workshops, such as Design at the Florentine Jewellery School "Alchimia"; Design courses held by Giorgio Gaino, design of the jewel held by MariarosaFranzin, metal oxidation with Master Lorenzo Burchiellaro, enamels with Luigi Barato and a seminar held by Charon Kransen. I graduated at the University of Ravenna in Conservation of Cultural and Environmental Heritage - Contemporary art.
I have attended several international exhibitions, events and competitions including: Gioielli in Fermento (Italy),  Joya Barcelona International Jewellery Fair, Alliages - Lille, OhMyBlue-Venice, Ickx-Brussels, Adornment-Venice, Dialogues-Japana and Italy, Fiera Vicenza oro, Premio Cominelli, (Italy)

Eleonora Ghilardi

Italia

Ho iniziato le prime esperienze nel campo della scultura e della pittura nel 1987, alternandole allo studio di varie tecniche artistiche applicate a vari materiali (vetro, stoffa, argilla, ceramica raku). Workshops nel settore del vetro (lavorazione "a lume") e della resina mi hanno condotta ad ulteriori sperimentazioni, ma la svolta fondamentale è avvenuta con la frequentazione di vari corsi inerenti la lavorazione della porcellana, materiale nobile, definito in passato "oro bianco", utilizzata con tecniche personali dal 2005. La lavorazione del bronzo e dell'argento con la tecnica della microfusione a cera persa, frutto della frequentazione della Scuola Orafa, nonchè la sperimentazione di connubi particolari (cemento e resina) sono le tecniche utilizzate recentemente. Nel 2012 ho creato il logo EG Eleonora Ghilardi Ceramics & Jewels. Sperimentazione, innovazione, ricerca nel design sono le caratteristiche delle mie creazioni, che spaziano dal complemento di arredo, installazioni, sculture e tutto quanto riguarda l'home decor, a collezioni di gioielli che abbiano sempre un concept, un filo conduttore, presentate in vari eventi e fiere del settore, a livello nazionale ed internazionale e presenti in varie gallerie e show-room. Fra le mostre più importanti, GIOIELLI ALLA MODA, novembre 2016, PALAZZO REALE MILANO.

Luisa Chiandotto

Italia

Vivo e lavoro a Padova.
Sono laureata in Pedagogia all’Università di Padova. Ho studiato architettura allo IUAV di Venezia e Arte dei metalli e dell’oreficeria all’Istituto “Pietro Selvatico” di Padova. Ho insegnato alle scuole superiori e attualmente mi dedico all’oreficeria di ricerca. Sono iscritta all’Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo e dal 2013 ho partecipato ad esposizioni come Ring Party, On Off, Gioielli in fermento, Filo rosso, Dialoghi Italia Giappone, XLV Mostra dell’artigianato artistico abruzzese, Natura Praetiosa.

Sono membro della Gallery di Gioielli in fermento.

Mi hanno sempre affascinato le trasformazioni fisico-chimiche indotte dai processi di riscaldamento e deformazione plastica nel comportamento di alcuni metalli e leghe semipreziose. In particolare in questo periodo mi sono dedicata e sperimentare gli effetti di texture e cromatismo che si possono ottenere applicando varie tecniche di reticolazione, ossidazione e patinatura ad alcune leghe di antica tradizione giapponese, come lo shibuichi e lo shakudo, ed a metalli come l’argento e il rame. Questa ricerca mette a mia disposizione una “tavolozza” di tonalità e superfici diverse che, attraverso la pratica dell’intarsio, mi consente di realizzare forme di “pittura” e “disegno” sul metallo valorizzandone i colori naturali, senza ricorrere ad apporti di natura estrinseca. A queste lamine e sfumature mi piace talvolta accostare la morbidezza ed i colori squillanti del silicone.

Adrean Bloomard

Italia

Adrean Bloomard's works convey the aura of an object that is thousands of years old, yet relates to the times we live in. He has carried out research relative to the study of historical elements that remain constant in time and have explored the potential that objects from the past have of evoking sensations, memories and the consequent impact they have on us. He believes that objects 'belonging' to history are part of our formative experience, representing our cultural DNA. His main inspiration comes from architecture, ancient repertoires and ruins in Rome, where he lives and works. He has been breathing-in this atmosphere every day since he was born and consequently this is expressed in what he makes. He allows the materials he uses to become "compromised" during the making process, resulting in a metal surface that often appears to be cracked, jagged, corroded or worn.

Myriam Bottazzi

Italia

"I am searching for another form of beauty, one that is not obvious"
Myriam Bottazzi's contemporary jewelry is born from the intimate need to find a personal version of beauty, asymmetrical and imperfect, through which one recognizes oneself and communicates one's own vision of things. The perception of nature as a source of constant and unlimited inspiration, leads her to experiment with the most diverse combinations of shapes and materials, always faithful to the suggestions of an organic thought that she transmits to her creations.
Refined and ineffable works that escape definitions and belonging, complex and mutable pieces that become the expression of the perpetual flow of the universe, evoking the Japanese culture that has deeply marked her artistic path.
