Intro
Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts presents a course directed by Lucy Sarneel. This course emphasises the specific role that jewellery plays in our mass-oriented, efficient and high-tech world and the individual value it represents to us.
This course emphasises the specific role that jewellery plays in our mass-oriented, efficient and high-tech world and the individual value it represents to us. Attention will be paid to each student’s personal perception of jewellery, but also to the diversity in the history and tradition of jewellery.

With personal guidance, students will develop “their own cosmos” through research, sketching and writing, in order to inspire and encourage their personal working process. The course is a playground for discovering new ways of applying techniques and material according to the individual imagination of the student, rather than a course about particular jewellery techniques. 

The students are encouraged to reflect on their work individually as well as collectively. Making, reflecting and communicating are keywords in the working method. This results in a challenging and open approach to jewellery. Jewellery-related discussions and guest lectures are initiated to increase students’ awareness of the meaning of jewellery. In the final week the participants are expected to present their work to the public in an inventive way.

The course aims to reveal and encourage each student’s “treasures of imagination”, as well as their drive and expressiveness in the field of jewellery.

About the teacher:
Lucy Sarneel, born in Maastricht (NL) in 1961, lives and works in Amsterdam as jewellery artist and teacher at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, department of jewellery. She studied basic jewellery techniques at the Stadsacademie Maastricht and continued her study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, where she graduated in 1989. Her work is internationally recognised in private and museum collections.
Lucy Sarneel’s work refers to culture and time. Her work provides a counterweight to the high-tech, efficient and mass-oriented world in which cultures are disappearing as a result of commercialisation and globalisation. The visual language of her jewellery is associative, often sculptural, and encourages the free experience of thoughts and feelings.
