March madness

I am pleased to share three wonderful shows that I have the honour of being selected for this March.

SCHMUCK 2013, Munich Germany.  It was a great honour to be selected for this year’s Schmuck exhibition curated by Bernhard Schobinger.   And thank you to Creative New Zealand for generously providing me with the opportunity to experience the event first hand.
“SCHMUCK is a global competition,” explained Dieter Dohr, CEO and president of GHM Gesellschaft fur Handwerksmessen mbH.  Schobinger of Richterswil in Switzerland is a trained goldsmith, and is one of today’s leading jewellery designers. His works are regarded as influential in determining new directions in style and the man himself is seen as an artist with a unique aesthetic sense who has broken new ground particularly in avant-garde jewellery design.  Not surprisingly, the works selected by him for SCHMUCK 2013, reflect this background, “they include a number of exciting new artist, but also many familiar names,” reveals Deiter Dohr.

Handshake is an international jewellery project founded by New Zealand curator Peter Deckers. The results of this mentee/ mentor jewellery project have been exhibited regularly throughout Australasia over the last two years.  Work from my 2013 series, Milk and Honey will feature as part of the Handshake project at Handwerksmesse as part of Schmuck, Munich 6-12 March. The preview and catalogue launch will take place at 1.30pm on 6 March. Please find more information here. http://handshakejewellery.com/ 
Please also take the time watch this lovely video for the PLEDGEME drive on until the 6th of March.
Thank you to my mentor, Judy Darragh for her enthusiasm and ongoing support
Retrospect curated by Jo Mears is showing until May at the fantastic New Dowse Museum in Lower Hutt.  It is one of my favourite museums in New Zealand and a great honour to have work shown there. Especially a show that is advertised like this: “An installation by Wellington artist Peter Deckers is featured alongside works by 20 other contemporary New Zealand jewellers. The exhibition features materials as diverse as iPod shuffles, take-away containers… and rabbit poo.” From The New Dowse Newsletter
