Ruudt Peters
For Design Miami/ Basel 2013, Ornamentum premieres "Qi" - the latest work of Dutch conceptual jeweler Ruudt Peters. Continuing a long search for various forms of alchemy, Peters found himself in China for three months, exploring the inner alchemy (Qi) of Eastern culture. The resulting exhibition is comprised of blind drawings on stone, either made into wearable pendants and brooches and layered with further drawings constructed of silver or as large stone decorative tablets. It also features porcelain figures, like the clay army of Emperor Jing Di cast from acupuncture model, abstracted with additions of materials such as glass and hair among others, based on his diary of experiences as a Westerner in a complex, foreign land. A catalogue with text by Fredric Baas of the Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch will accompany the exhibition.
