  • Preowned Georg Jensen Exceptionally Rare Large Belt Buckle No 6. 1904-1908
    1stdibs.com
    Georg Jensen Exceptionally Rare Belt Buckle From His "first" Period. 826 Silver Content Was Used During This Period.Large Scale And Heavy At 6" Long. Entirely Handmade,beautifully Hand Hammered Details And Chasing. Fully Hallmarked Dating The Piece To 1904-1908Acquired From A Private Estate. This Piece Was In The Georg Jensen Museum, Copenhagen And Published In Janet Drucker's Book.Museum Quality Piece For A True Collector.Georg Jensen Grew Up In A Small Village Raadvad, 10 Km North Of Copenhagen. The Close, Daily Contact With Nature In This Area Turned Out To Be A Continuous Artistic Inspiration For Him Through The Rest Of His Life. His Superior Interpretation Of Nature And The Supernatural World In His Ceramics And His Works In Silver And Gold Persisted Throughout His Career. Georg Jensen Started Out As An Apprentice In The Forging Department Of The Knife Factory In Raadvad Where His Father Also Worked. His Family Moved To Copenhagen In 1880 And He Had To Change Trades. At This Time, He Became Apprentice To The Goldsmith A. R. Andersen 1881-86 In Saint Peders Street 5. Georg Jensen’S Teenage Dream Was To Become A Sculptor. During His Apprenticeship, As Well As During His Working Years 1886-87 As Silversmith With Goldsmith Holm In Svaertegade, Copenhagen, He Improved His Abilities In Drawing, Modeling, And Design. During The Winter 1886-87 He Worked On His First Sculpture: A Bust Of His Father. He Finished That Successfully In April 1887, And It Was Judged Favorably Enough To Help Him Gain Admission To The School Of Sculpture At The Academy Of Fine Arts In Copenhagen The Same Year. The Bust Was Exhibited At Charlottenborg (Copenhagen) In 1889. During His Years As A Student 1887-92 He Received Several Grants That Enabled Him To Leave His Work As Silver- And Goldsmith, Temporarily. During The 1890S He Had To Return To That Work To Supplement His Income. Even Though He Had Received Several Grants During These Years In Appreciation Of His Talent As Sculptor, Very Few Of His Sculptures Were Sold. In January 1892 He Received His Diploma From The School Of Sculpture At The Academy Of Fine Arts. While Enrolled At The Academy, He Had Exhibited Several Times At The Trend Making Autumn Exhibition At Charlottenborg In Copenhagen. He Was Well Accepted By The Leaders At The Academy Of Fine Arts, Such As The Professors Bissen And Stein. He Also Received Good Reviews From Art Critics. In 1893 He Was Awarded Gold Medal For, “An Archer From Prehistoric Times.” This Included A Travel Grant, Which Made It Possible For Him To Go On A Study-Tour To Italy And France During 1894. A Small Statuette Of A Goddess, Engraved “Copy. Napoli. Gj” On The Base, Was Made On That Trip. In The Following Years He Completed Several Other Study Tours, In Particular To Germany. His Longest Tour Began In 1900, When He Was Given A Large Travel-Grant From The Academy Of Fine Arts In Copenhagen, Enabling Him To Stay Abroad For More Than A Year. Georg Jensen Found Most Of His Inspiration From The Nearby Natural Objects Of His Everyday Life. His Sculpting Was Done Of The People Who Were Closest To His Heart, Among Them, His Sons Vidar And Jorgen. He Was Able To Transform The Shape And Feeling Of The Images Into Plaster, While At The Same Time He Depicted The Beauty Without Disturbing Details. This Ability To Capture The Pure Soul Of The Subject Continued When He Changed His Life To Work In Silver. This Unique Ability Singled His Out As Outstanding Compared To Most Of His Contemporaries. By The End Of The 1890S Georg Jensen Was Introduced To Applied Art By Pietro Krohn, Who Was Artistic Director At The Porcelain Factory Bing & Grondahl. Here He Learned That Design Of A High Artistic Quality Could Be Mass Produced. This Increase In Output Could Therefore Make It A Worthy Economic Venture For Ceramists. He Incorporated This Philosophy As His Own When He Began His Pottery Work. After He Decided To Concentrate On Silver In 1903, He Never Compromised On A High Standard Of Artistic Quality, Even Though The Works Were Produced Industrially. From The Georg Jensen Soci

    We want to see the world through a rose-colored lens. Or a blue lens. Or a yellow lens. We love the new Instax monochromatic lenses so much that we sent them to a group of emerging international photographers to see how they captured the world through their own colorful perspectives. Cru Camara Manila, Philippines Are you a full-time photographer? If not, what else do you do? Technically, I'm still trying to finish school. I'm right in the middle of earning my BFA. What themes or ideas are you most interested in photographing? A lot of my work has to do with making everyday things or occurrences into more than what they initially are. Color drives a lot of the images because it lets me highlight those subtleties. I'm also drawn to a certain feeling of ambiguity, especially with the way I put the images together. There's always some sort of fragmentation happening, I think. Can you share more about what you shot for this series? I just wanted to come up with something quiet, maybe a bit melancholic and nostalgic. What was your first camera? An old Nikon FM2 my dad bought back in the 80s. What’s your favorite photo you’ve ever taken? Probably this one. What photographers do you most admire? There are too many to name all at once! I look at a lot of Rinko Kawauchi's work. I admire a lot of contemporary photographers from the Philippines too like Czar Kristoff, Tim Serrano, Charles Salazar, just to name a few. Everyone's doing great stuff out here. Who are some of your favorite people to follow on Instagram? Mostly other photographers. My favorite to look at right now is Nguan (@_nguan_). Katherine Gaskin Toronto, Canada Are you a full-time photographer? If not, what else do you do? I wouldn't consider myself a full-time photographer or even a 'photographer,' but recently, taking photos has become a part of my work. I'm a freelance web/graphic designer and since I can basically work from anywhere with Wi-Fi, I really love to travel. Can you share more about your photography — how do you describe your work? I want my photos to inspire happiness, feed people's wanderlust, and brighten their day with vivid colors. Most of the time, I feel like I'm living in my own dream world and I hope my photos can give people an escape every so often. It's fun to tap into our imaginations. What themes or ideas are you most interested in photographing? Things that make me happy = Sunsets, tropical beaches, palm trees, salty pineapples, frolicking around in teeny bikinis, sandy feet, tanned skin, coconuts, the ocean... Can you share more about what you shot for this instant photo series? Having fun adventuring around the island of Oahu doing things that make my heart happy like beach hopping, floating in the ocean, holding pineapples and watching the sunset. What was your first camera? It was a 35mm camera that had Ninja Turtles on it. I wish I still had it. What’s your favorite photo you’ve ever taken? The first time I ever took a pineapple and my GoPro into the ocean then realized that pineapples float! What photographers do you most admire? I don't admire any particular photographers, but I have a strong appreciation for the creative artists out there who take photos every day, share what they love and continue to evolve their craft. Being an artist seems so competitive these days and if you can stay true to yourself and your own unique style, that's something I can respect. Who are some of your favorite people to follow on Instagram? @thelifeofjessicaa @sarahirenemurphy @_carlybrownphotography_ @masonrosephoto @morganmaassen Kimberley Dhollander Antwerp, Belgium Can you share more about your photography — how do you describe your work? I think my work consists mostly of dreamy, colorful images. I like to work with lines, textures and colors. Outside of that I also shoot interiors, coffee shops, some portraits, and the occasional street photography. Can you share more about what you shot for this series? I started walking in Antwerp, my hometown, and was looking out for little details: shades of trees, walls, facades… anything that looked i

    Can you believe that all of these pieces were created just by putting pencil on paper? Courtney Brims is an Australian self-taught artist based in Brisbane who graduated with a degree in interior design before turning her attention to art and illustration in 2008. Amazingly, Courtney works almost only with colored pencils, sketching dreamy worlds of lost girls and bewildering creatures. Brims says she is influenced by Victorian illustration, fairytales, daydreams, nightmares and childhood memories. "I see my pictures as bittersweet, delicate and detailed. They are dreamy and a little dark at times. I like to hope that they fill people with a sense of curiosity and nostalgia." - Courtney Brims Here are some of her fantastic animal drawings: Courtney Brims

  • Переливы чистой воды Екатерина Истомина о коллекции Tiffany Co. Blue Book 2015 года
    More info
    Blue Book — таково название древнего исторического каталога драгоценных и роскошных товаров американского дома Tiffany & Co. Впервые такой каталог был представлен публике еще в 1845 году, ныне же Blue Book — это также и имя ежегодной коллекции легендарной заокеанской марки. В этом году дизайнером драгоценностей Blue Book выступила Франческа Амфитеатроф, которая присоединилась к команде Tiffany & Co. в 2013 году. В настоящий момент наиболее известной коллекцией, дизайн которой выполнила Франческа Амфитеатроф, является ювелирная линейка Tiffany T, дебютировавшая в середине 2014 года. Tiffany T — это собрание украшений городского минималистического плана, именно американские, то есть простые, лаконичные ювелирные предметы, очень ясные, динамичные и деловые. Драгоценности Blue Book — они совсем иного рода. Это вещи исторической и романтической воздушной красоты, многие украшения создавались по архивным рисункам.
