New jewellery artists

From the Saimaa university of applied sciences faculty of fine arts and design specialisation of stoneware and jewellery design new graduated students are having an exhibition at Galleria Rantapaja 

The emphasis of Elo Uibokand’s theme lies on healing and compassion. Compassion demands for warmth, security and care.
The materials are, mostly, brown ceramics and dark-grey woolen cloth. The chosen materials both evoke primal warmth for her; it_ s about human touch, the touch of a hand, the warmth of the touch.

In Janica Hiipakka’s theoretical part the main issue was to learn more about the lives of the first Finnish female artists and to find common issues which allowed them to practice art. She focused mainly on female artists who are not commonly known to the wide public. She chose three artists called Margareta Capsia, Helena Gezelia Arnell and Mathilda Rotkirch. Based on their paintings Janica started to create jewellery set, which includes two necklaces and eight brooches. Materials used in jewelleries were chosen from the paintings and they were silver, paint and disposable sheet.

Eeva Kotiharju studied the human behaviour and communication. Based on her thesis she started to create jewellery like objects that have no real mechanisms. She wanted the pieces to have only slight indication to the most important tools of communication on the face: the eyes and the mouth. The pieces are made of copper and they are processed in different ways. The result is thirteen jewellery like objects, that tell about communication between people, in a humoristic way.

Taru Kauris made as her final thesis, sixteen unique necklaces. Her works are inspired by usage of Finnish chains before the 1900 century and the jewellery findings made in the excavations. Pieces are made of metal wires which have been electroformed to create a lively surface. She has highlighted the surface with different treatments. She has succeeded to create a set which reflects the history of chain and her own concepts of beauty. The artist has named her set as her own grave findings.
