JOYA Barcelona 2014

SELEN ÖZUS

I am gliding on an emotional air and trying to understand my feelings such as anger, love, and sorrow.
I am also inspired by human body and the conditions it is involved like simple daily life and intricate relationships to other people.
My works are my memories. They are little sculptures that carry poetic and ironic stories. I share my memories with people when my pieces are worn. Then every piece starts having new memories.
This is why I make jewelry.
I usually convey my experiences through my illustrations first.
It works like a therapy for me.
I develop my jewelry by carrying my illustrations to the materials I like, especially silver, iron, and porcelain.
I use silver like a canvas, pure and white, I fire and texture it to express a drawing quality.
I also enjoy joining the darkness and heaviness of the iron with the fragile but robust nature of porcelain.
When I am working I dive into a wonderful world full of surprises.
I feel safe in the loneliness of my creative process and express my feelings as outloud as possible.

POINT OF VIEW

Geometry is the base, the code of every form.
Any shape can be understood in those terms.
To construct something, you have to start from those basic elements.
By following some guidelines I put up for myself, I explore systematically all the possibilities coming from one shared starting point.
My curiosity is in how many different directions you can go by manipulating one shape over and over again.
Although the process is quite controlled, the outcomes are often unexpected.

MICHELLE KRAEMER

Clouds…accumulations…high up in the sky…untouchable… force of nature…white and fluffy or dark and threatening.
Every cloud has a silver lining, but at the same time every silver lining has a cloud.
It depends on what way you’re looking at it.
So are you an optimist or a pessimist?
Are you walking on cloud no. 9 or do you see dark clouds on the horizon?

“A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them.”
Leonard Louis Levinson

M.A.R.

Close your eyes.
Relax.
Focus on your breath.
Smell the sea breeze, listen to the slow movement of the breaking waves.
Visualize the white sand, the water, the golden sun reflecting on it.
A water with a wide palette of green.
White, pale, light, dark, almost blue degrees of green.
Can you see it?
Now you are diving into the Mediterranean sea.
Just enjoy it!!!

ANDREA CODERCH

I usually work based on specific themes I feel very attracted.
A big adventure happened in my life.
I can say I started a new period after this experience.
This time is about the mental, cultural and physical shock I lived in what I call “parallel world” (for me,I guess, not for them)
In the school told me I am a storyteller, CONGRATULATIONS!, you arrive in the best time to follow “my life a.j.” since the beginning, but right now there is no end, and I think it will take a while to know it.
Every single piece tells somehow parts of the story.
I challenge you to follow it.

ROTTERDAM SKYLINE

This body of work has been inspired by the observation of the skyline of the city of Rotterdam.
This colorful pieces are the interpretation that my eyes have made of the geometrical shapes of the buildings, using unreal, dreamy colors associated to my personal perception of the architectures.
It is a naive elaboration of a new reality and a new life.

ROSENGARTEN

My home town of Bozen is encircled by mountains.
One mountain towers above them all, powerful yet delicate: the Rosengarten (rosegarden).
The soaring, jagged peaks contain a legend that fascinates me, the legend of King Laurin,
who cursed his flowering rose garden so that it could no longer be admired.
The garden can however be seen in its full splendour each day, if only briefly: it is lit up glow-
ing pink before sunrise and after sunset.
I cover garnets from my region South Tyrol with silver.
Each ring is a single piece.

AKIKO BAN

Akiko Ban’s creative process can be inspired by her nostalgia, memories or her imagination for the future.
Often both elements come together and are expressed as one.
While at other times, she lets her mind empty while her hands create forms that stimulate the eye and capture the imagination.
