Ne avevo già parlato ma la mostra è così bella che non può stancare ! A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry è approdata al MAD di New York, organizzata dalla celebre Maison Bernardaud (casa di Limoges specializzata in porcellana) e curata dall'artista del gioiello Monika Brugger, questa esposizione mostra come la porcellana sia versatile e affascinante.

Tra i 18 artisti rappresentati ci sono dall'Olanda Peter Hoogeboom (un vero maestro, il suo sito è una meraviglia) Evert Nijland (uno tra i miei favoriti), Ted Noten, dalla Germania: Gésine Hackenberg, dalla Spagna: Marie Pendariès, e da Taiwan: Shu-Lin Wu.

A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewelry
explores the manifold appeal of ceramics, especially porcelain, in jewelry. Organized by the Fondation d'Entreprise Bernardaud and curated by the renowned German-born goldsmith and jewelry artist Monika Brugger, the exhibition showcases the versatility and allure of the medium, which can be modeled or cast, used alone or with metal, wood, and stone, and vary in color and texture. Best known as the stuff of the luxurious and the mundane, of fine tableware and technical equipment, when used in jewelry, porcelain sparks the visual and physical sensations to become an object of desire.

The exhibition showcases the scope and ingenuity of the more than one hundred works on view and features the work of 18 cutting-edge jewelry artists, including creations by such notables as Peter Hoogeboom, Evert Nijland, Ted Noten (The Netherlands), Gésine Hackenberg (Germany), Marie Pendariès (Spain), and Shu-Lin Wu (Taiwan). While some make reference to traditional jewelry in materials and symbolism, others altogether redefine it in substance, form, and matter.
