Creating an ornament is a safe activity, but with an importance placed on how the literal space of an ornament relates to its surroundings. It can be difficult to keep concepts clear to the end – the wearer looking always over the shoulder of the maker. In SPACE NOW we will avoid the voice of society and jump into space, to try to discover SPACE in all its possible entities. SPACE NOW wants to increase your spatial contribution. To confront you with the space you take as a maker, and how you can enlarge and stretch this space. But also how we as creators relate to the space of the universe. You learn to think spatially in SPACE NOW and give shape to your spacey dreams
This pin is a small particle of the "MA" series, the new work in my upcoming retrospective exhibition: BRON. Bron means "source", a word I find fascinating as I continue to investigate the inspirations and serendipities through which we can better understand ourselves. By buying this unlimited art edition, you take home a piece of this exploration. In this "source" you might both look and see. It is both a mirror and a window to the soul. Each piece is hand made by myself and each has a different attitude, a different expression.
Exhibition runs until January 28th 2018
Ruudt Peters is a Dutch jeweller and sculptor. As a highly energetic person, we can find him everywhere. Teaching at Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, Konstfack in Stockholm, Alchemia in Florence. Travelling in China, India, Mexico, the Old and New World, finding new impulses for his ideas. However peculiar and extravagant his ideas are, he always manages to present them perfectly, convincingly. In November was he in Tallinn for a week long masterclass, invited by the Jewellery and Blacksmithing Department of Estonian Academy of Arts. It was an exceptionally emotional and intense week.
This Summer Susan Cummins visited Tallinn. She is a collector and former gallerist from San Francisco, and is currently Chair of the Board of AJF (Art Jewelry Forum).
From the talk with her a thought emerged that artists lack strategical thinking. You are really an exception, every few years you come up with an entirely new theme and series of works, always introduced by a book. Also there is the pre-planned exhibition tour and participating in fairs ... It really makes you one of the greatest strategists in the field of jewellery.
