High Five – Schmuck 2013 in Review

It has been about 30 hours since my 30 hour trip home from Munich.  I am happy to announce that I did not have a baby on the plane, even though the rumor of lifetime free flights was tempting.   I am nearly back to normal, although I did question my ability to operate heavy machinery as I got behind the wheel of the car today…..
There is so much to reflect on and share.  I will try to post everything I saw over the next few weeks.  So let’s start with the highlight and work our way from there…..
SCHMUCK 2013.
It was an amazing experience to see my my work at the show.  This is a mobile photo and doesn’t show the brooches that well, but it also glosses over how gigantic I am.  And it does show the shadows off quite nicely.

Thank you to Creative New Zealand who made this trip possible!  Hurray.

Handshake goes to Schmuck

I have just returned from Schmuck-tastic-ness that was Munich 2013.I am still reeling from the event and in a happy jewellery daze.My camera has been  momentarily kidnapped for the weekend, so snippets will have to suffice.

Here is the handshake install at the Messe Handwerk hall – in this image my work was on grey _ fifth from the left.  I think that the aim of explaining the project, not just the work came through in this install.

New Zealand talent recognised in Germany

From the Objectspace newsletter…..
In March, the work of a number of New Zealanders will be represented in exhibitions at the annual international shows Talentè and Schmuck. Fatemeh Aghahasan, Tamsin Fraser, Briar Mark, Hayden Maunsell, Kristin D’Agostino, Karl Fritsch, Lisa Walker are just some of those who will have their work on  display.   
Whereas Talentè showcases craft and design, the focus of Schmuck is on contemporary jewellery. As part of Schmuck, jeweller Warwick Freeman has been invited to present a survey exhibition including works from the 1980s to 2013.
This year the spotlight is also on the work of 12 emerging contemporary jewellers. Facilitated by Peter Deckers, Handshake is a mentoring project, supported by Creative New Zealand,  that culminates in an exhibition. Handshake will be staged at Objectspace.
We wish all the exhibitors the very best!
