Rolling Waves At Dawn

Ute Decker Rolling Waves at Dawn, 2019 18kt Fairtrade gold and 100% recycled sterling silver sculptural brooch & pin (bimetal) 9.5 x 4 x 2.2 cm edition of 24 unique within the series initialled and hallmarked   This unique piece is highly reflective of Ute Decker’s understanding of the complexities when working with two different metals, given the differences in malleability and melting points. The resulting brooch is a delicate display of two colliding components combined into a very simplistic narrative of the nature of waves, of which the bicoloured metals suggest a change in the daylight to the brightest time of the day.

Ute Decker Chaos, 2019 18kt Fairtrade gold brooch & pendant 11.5 x 6 x 4.5 cm unique within the series initialled and hallmarked   This particular brooch is an excellent testament to Decker’s work. In a wild display of Decker’s wires spreading and dashing around the spaces, this sculptural work of art can be a brooch, yet re-transforms itself into a neckpiece pendant.

Magma Brooch

Liliane Lijn Magma Brooch, 2013 Silver sulpher brooch Edition of 25 + 2APs     Evocative of her visual abstractions and material manipulations, Lijn’s concept of the primal earth are finely tuned with the geological sciences. This brooch resembles the same characteristics of the highly volatile liquid magma that keeps the planet alive and constantly rotating. This same magma that reaches the surface from volcanic eruptions, maintains the cycle of life and death, are drawn into continuous momentum of renewal and vitality that Lijn echoes in her Magma and Fossil series. There is something very personal when wearing this brooch. In a very meditative approach with these pieces, Lijn begins her pieces by moulding a clump of very hot wax with her bare hands. The high temperature, although stung her skin, the malleable nature of the wax manipulated the mass to resemble the magma of the earth. As technology has allowed her to work with a diverse range of materials in her sculptural work; instead of cast metal, electro-forming was used to carefully reflect the same earthen surface texture reinforced into this brooch.

Alba Polenghi Lisca Spilla Cielo, 2015 silver, black enamel and white gold clasp brooch 8 x 8 x 0.4 cm edition of 9 signed   ‘The artist jewel includes his/her own aesthetic – artistic research, deepening of his reflection, thus becoming a piece of art independent of the jewel intended as an ornament. For me, the jewel reflects the anticipated discourse in painting translated into a new language with different materials, the design of which comes from a design – shape – sign, a process that I follow from the beginning of the work in each piece.’ – Alba Polenghi Lisca
