IS THAT JEWELRY?
An exhibition that wonders and asks about the many different aspects of contemporary jewelry
"How do you wear this ring?"
"Is your brooch dangerous?"
"Why is your necklace so large?"
"Is that jewelry ?" exhibition does not have all the answers. But it has many ideas to get the discussion started. It has plenty of creators and jewelry in order to make this an interesting discussion. It also has many parallel activities (performances and workshops) - not just words. The most important thing, it has the desire to guide you through the fascinating world of contemporary jewelry, the way the participants and the creators are experiencing it.

-FROM WAX TO JEWELRY-
4days workshop with Gabi Veit
27,28,29 & 1 April 2015
Duration: 19 hours
In this workshop we will experience a different approach and an alternative way of working with wax. Wax gives us the opportunity to make jewelry without professional tools and machineries. Because of its nature it offers plenty of possibilities to work with, such as modeling, carving, melting etc.
Throughout the workshop we will also go through different experiences, playing with wax, creating, trying, failing, recreating, selecting...
Several exercises will give us a lot of fun and help us go deeper in our personal approach to jewelry.
After that, we will select some of the pieces and have them casted in silver, brass or copper.
At the end of the workshop we will discuss the results and make our final comments on our creations.
Days of the course: 27,28,29 & 1 April 2015.

A 4 day workshop full of experimentation, play and discoveries!The wax as material has infinite possibilities. Those who worked with it for the first time, loved it! Those who had already worked with it gave it a chance. At the end they were surprised of what they can do if they start to think - out of the box-.

The past year has been very creative for anamma, full of knowledge, emotions, thrills, exhibitions, tours, seminars and of course creations.
We started with a lot of emotions, trying to capture a sense, a feeling in designs and materials. A nice warm-up for the start of a creative year.
Then the artist-painter Evangelos Papapostolou took us on a journey through the paths of art, based on teachings of three great painters and art theorists.
After that it was Dimitris Nikolaidis with his endless knowledge and talent, who taught anamma students how to shape wax materials and turn them into jewelry. The jewelry technique known as cast jewelry.
Another 3-day seminar on anamma took place in March. Nicole Polentas & Christopher Milbourne were the instructors. The artists from Australia taught us a new technique called Fusion. Merge of materials and ideas. It was an amazing seminar full of jewelry - surprises.
And then, a break combined with a sparkle of inspiration. Our tour in Munich to visit the Schmuck 2014, the world’s most widespread international contemporary jewelry fair. There ... words cannot describe ... we met the family of jewelry. We saw up close, touched and felt creations of artists from around the world.
Once armed with new stimuli, we prepared for anamma exhibition, "Enotion" (the earring in Ancient Greek). Inspired by the past and ancient Greek jewelry we created earrings with modern materials and techniques. Students from both the jewelry making and design group along with the teachers of anamma exhibited their creations, all made through a contemporary approach.
In April we had the honor to host the jewelry designer Akis Goumas, to guide and travel us through his personal journeys. He made us love jewelry even more.
June came with a breeze from Istanbul. We hosted a 3-day seminar with Selen Ozus and Burcu Buyukunal from “maden” jewelry studio. They taught us how an everyday object can be transformed into a jewel and how to see things from other perspectives.
The year ended for anamma with the exhibition of its advanced students, titled "Microcosmoi"(microcosms). Five classmates presented each their own microcosm. They submitted thoughts, ideas, feelings and questions and created a series of jewelry. They learned how an idea can be developed into a jewel and how this jewel can be presented and eventually interact with the audience.
Contemporary jewellery exhibition
Thoughts, ideas, observations. And even more: emotions, quests, expectations. This is the essence of the team exhibition of contemporary jewellery, which will be presented at Gallery Marneri.
Five students from the Anamma studio see the world through their own eyes, get inspired and create. The results are five microcosmoi, like personal, imaginary gardens, which call for exploration. Our purpose is the journey and our wish is to share with you the adventure of creation that we went through.

3day workshop with Burcu Buyukunal & Selen Ozus
20, 21, & 22nd of June 2014
Duration: 12 hours
In this workshop we will be giving a second look at an ordinary object. We will take an object and deconstruct it by various ways depending on the nature of the object: sawing, breaking, hammering’ tearing…etc and reconstruct it into a jewelry piece. We will make experimentations with the forms while taking apart and rejoining. We will seek for creative solutions to reconstruct the piece and re-contextualize it on body.
This workshop is a conceptual one and basic jewelry making skills are required. We will introduce some connection solutions during the workshop. The object and brass in sheet and wire format will be provided as well as some joining materials. You are welcomed if you like to bring some other materials of yours.
