Intro
Creating jewellery is a completely open process, where shapes, colours and sizes meet and interact. This process unfolds in a constant dialogue between hand, metal and enamel. Selected Solo, an exhibition of enamel jewellery by Kaori Juzu.
 

Artist list

Kaori Juzu
Jewellery, as a term, is not definition enough to describe the works of Kaori Juzu. Born in Fukuoka, Japan, she moved to Bornholm in Denmark to study art. After training with the Danish jewellery designer Per Suntum, Kaori set up her own studio. She crafts experimental brooches and wearable objects, something she has come to describe as Klenodie; a danish word for treasure, gem, jewel, a small thing. Her work transforms feeling into form, blending explorative enamelwork techniques and processes. She uses a mixture of copper, silver, and gold before carefully hammering and sculpting each piece into shape. By applying multiple layers of enamel, Juzu seeks to enhance the expressive quality of an object by giving depth and texture to form, allowing form and surface to melt together.

I aspire to work solely for the sake of inspiration - before the mind begins to devour the joy of inspiration. Creating jewellery is a completely open process, where shapes, colours and sizes meet and interact. This process unfolds in a constant dialogue between hand, metal and enamel. In this intensive process layers of colour are built up until such moment: like the moon gleaming on water – soft lifting, serene, subdued, yet strong enough to have inherited a life as well as a form.
 As each shape interacts with the space around it, the shapes should elevate each segment and colour and also hold all the elements aloft. In such a space each piece starts to create new rhythms.
 No longer me, but opening doors on ordinary days.
