Kaori Juzu, Unique Expression with Enamel - Colour and Shape
10:00 am-12:30 pm ET

Juzu is an artist on the fringe who is forging her own path with enamelling. Besides enamelling on a flat metal surface, she also abolishes all boundaries to let the abstract forms, be they geometric or organic, unfold in space and play with the variations of light. In this workshop, you will learn how to sift dry enamel on the organic shaped copper and how to manipulate the enamelled surface, interrupting the fusion just in time to preserve the brilliance and texture of the grains. Let’s try to find new expressions and possibilities by working with enamelling colours!

VP Version 3

Kaori Juzu, a Japanese goldsmith residing in Bornholm, Denmark since 2002, uniquely blends her dual cultural influences to achieve a harmonious fusion of Japanese craftsmanship’s humility and refinement with the minimalist aesthetic of Danish design. Her enameled creations are micro-revelations that captivate with enduring allure. Since 2005, Kaori has been invited to participate in numerous group and solo exhibitions worldwide, culminating in her recognition as a finalist for the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize 2023.

Eighteen (Yihan) Yuan, a metalsmith and jeweler originally from China, embarked on her artistic journey in the United States, earning a BFA in Metal from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2020. She further honed her craft at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Yuan’s creative passion revolves around nature, inspiring her to craft sculptural jewelry that delves into the intersection of human emotions and the natural world. By incorporating narrative materials like ties, soap ends, and maps into her pieces, she invites viewers to contemplate themes of love, loss, and belonging with keen sensitivity.

SNAG in Conversation

SNAG In Conversation is virtual monthly gatherings for members and non-members to share experiences and knowledge and to build relationships.

These convenings were originally conceived in response to the disruption of COVID-19 to educators and studio artists. The conversations were so successful in providing space for communal resources that SNAG is pleased to continue them. All are welcome!
