Nicole Schuster  uses oxidized silver, sometimes combined with gold, precious stones or plastic. The rings, symbol of her approach, present themselves as real sculptures.

The  German author takes part in the group exhibition MATERIAMETAMORPHOSIS >>

 "...Natural codes revised through the light of new virtual technologies are for Nicole Schuster a constant reason for investigation: it is no coincidence that her work is the perfect conclusion to the path undertaken of reading the metamorphosis of matter, both conceptual and cultural: who or what, or rather, which metamorphosis will take the upper hand in the future? Natural reality or artificial reality? Nicole thinks of a world made of ornaments where plastic materials printed in 3D and decorated with fluorescent paint are, potentially, extraordinary hybrids of natural cells and synthetic organisms that, as suggested by the title "Reaching for the Sun" still seek the healing power of the Sun, just like the Icarus with whom we started out our journey. "

The  Turk author takes part in the group exhibition MATERIAMETAMORPHOSIS >>

"The potential of materials and their structural possibilities fascinate Snem Yildirim, supported in this research by her architectural studies; Snem has found in jewellery an effective way of expressing her cultural world and the social context in which she lives in. Starting from themes dear to her, she experiments with materials and different production processes to express them: in her brooch with the ironic title "Up Hill and down dale" (translatable as "through mountains and valleys"), she focuses on recycled materials that render her great sensitivity towards ecology, through shape suggestions, edges, volumes in space and the border between visible and invisible."

The Chilean author takes part in the group exhibition MATERIAMETAMORPHOSIS >>

 "Jewellery as the expression of one’s cultural world is also the creative horizon for Rita Soto, Chilean, who in her works combines contemporary suggestions to the recovery of her country’s traditional artisan knowledge, using the technique of weaving horsehair, from which she experiences both resistance and frailty. The series of brooches titled "Visceral Realism" presents organic forms of brilliant imagination that recall the body, yet also organisms in continuous transformation. Realities that seem to shrink and expand thanks to the wise use of weaving: the biological matrix of her research is subtly developed also thanks to a clever chromatic choice, so that her creations adhere to a dimension of verisimilitude, to realistic metamorphoses of a Nature, possible but to us yet unknown"

The Israeli author takes part in the group exhibition MATERIAMETAMORPHOSIS >>

"..a young Israeli author, draws inspiration from the myth of Icarus for her psychological metamorphosis, which challenges the laws of Nature in an unresolvable dichotomy. Daniella materially develops this theme in a smart and creative way: her sculpture ring, also designed for men (as are many of her ornaments which follow the body lines as if some impossible prostheses), is macro-sized in contradiction with the functionality of the scapular wing from which its form is taken, right down to the very surface recalling the bone’s superficial opacity. The material, a resin containing marble dust, is a reference to the heaviness of our limits, while the copper wires placed on the edges are poetic and very light hints to the Sun’s golden reflections, and therefore of our innermost desires: Icarus is the symbol of the constant tension between sky and earth, between desire and frustration, and as such this ring represents those formal characters that speak of this ambiguity, both perceptive and symbolic."

Exvoto in ceramica, un progetto di Elvira Keller

La locuzione latina “ex voto” significa letteralmente a seguito di un voto. L’espressione completa è “ex voto suscepto“, cioè per voto fatto: un oggetto dato in dono ad una divinità. È una pratica usata in molte religioni ed è un ringraziamento per una grazia ricevuta. In definitiva l’ex voto è un comportamento.
L’oggetto ex voto è solo la manifestazione finale di questo processo: evento, richiesta di intervento, esaudimento ed infine pellegrinaggio ed esposizione dell’oggetto, appunto, per grazia ricevuta.

Gli Exvoto in ceramica diventano elementi pop, messaggi colorati da comporre.


Exvoto in ceramic, a project by Elvira Keller

The Latin phrase "ex voto" literally means following a vote. The complete expression is "ex voto suscepto", that is, by vow made: an object given as a gift to a divinity. It is a practice used in many religions and it is a thank you for a grace received. Ultimately, ex-voto is behavior. The ex voto object is only the final manifestation of this process: event, request for intervention, fulfillment and finally pilgrimage and exhibition of the object, precisely, by grace received.

The ceramic Exvoto become pop elements, colorful messages to compose.

Corrado participates in the group exhibition MATERIAMETAMORPHOSIS >> with the new Constellations Improbable collection

"The sky remains man’s maximum ambition, the place to look at to find the way, or to identify new paths: Corrado De Meo has always experimented with materials, transferring in his research a pronounced poetic inspiration: his brooches are ‘improbable constellations’ with small pearls that punctuate a resin painted with acrylic metallic colours, deliberately left rough and irregular with opaque shades which unlike the ‘sidereal’ pearls, compressed in a lunar territory, absorb light. The result is a crystallized moment, a contrast that recalls a newly found harmony, suspended between precious material (coming from the sea) and the synthetic materials inspired by nature. New spaces to explore, new horizons for the materials: an interpenetration that finds its highest goal in this sky of ideas."

The Korean author takes part in the group exhibition MATERIAMETAMORPHOSIS >>

"Seulgi Kwon introduces with her refined technique a new concept of synthetic material metamorphosis which reaches very high results in the final outcome. Her jewels are natural organisms pertaining to the plant and animal world, evoking fluid cellular bodies with a changeable and liquid form that the viewer can interpret in everchanging ways, as in the author's intentions. This thanks to the use of very thin layers of silicone, a long and complex process that Seulgi has refined over time and which she finishes off with the inclusion of mixed pigments, beads, fabric, paper, wire and other materials. The results, which stem from a long creative preparatory process in terms of the design and study of three-dimensional casts, are true post-natural sculptures often with ironic and allusive titles ("The end of autumn", "In your garden"), alive and extraordinary in their consistency and colour"
