HOLY TOOLS ! AN EVENT OF PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2017

Aug

Only a few weeks left before the launch of the 2017 edition of Paris Design Week ! We are pleased to announce that LA Joaillerie by Mazlo will organize on this occasion an exceptional group show, in partnership with the Arketip association. Entitled “Sacrés Outils!”, this exhibition is particularly important to us. Indeed, it highlights the absolute necessity to rethink our relationship to objects and especially to manual tools. It also proves that preserving know-how is not incompatible with the use of technologies, provided that these advances do not affect the essential: creativity and human well-being. In these times of generalized burn-out, would happiness be “at the bench”? We would like to thank all our guests : Lisa & Scott Cylinder, Guillaume Delaperriere, Juanjo Garcia Martin, Xavier Moncluis, Jo Pond, Katja Prins, Quars d’una (Sandra Lluisa, Clara Niùbo , Carla Garcia Durlan, Maria Diez Serrat), Fabrizio Tridenti, Gabi Veit. Find all the relevant information about our guests by consulting their dedicated profile page on this site. And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for daily updates! Exhibition from 8 to 30 September 2017. Opening on September 7th, 7-9 pm.

Focus on the ring Castiglione

Nov
28

Author : Robert Mazlo Title: Castiglione One-of-a-kind ring Composition : Pink and green gold 750/000 Golden brown rough octahedral diamond, brown and champagne brillant cut diamonds.   As it often happens when I create a jewel, everything started with the stone. In this particular case, a beautiful golden brown rough octahedral diamond. Castiglione only appeared in a second time during the genesis of this ring, which I created as one of the highlight pieces of the “Diamond Like Me” exhibition. It illustrates a wider reflection on the analogies between the human condition and the diamond as our society perceives it. 1. About diamonds   iamond is a commonplace subject par excellence in the jewellery field. It seems like everything has already been said and heard about it. Especially when it comes to superlatives, like “the most valuable”, “the most famous”, “the most mysterious”, “the most expensive” diamonds… The list is simply endless. Yet it seems to me that we completely miss the point. First, because the diamond is not exclusively a colourless stone. Naturally coloured diamonds do exist, in greater or lesser proportion. This variety primarily comes from the presence of impurities (nitrogen, boron, hydrogen, nickel), inclusions (graphite or carbon) or from physical phenomenons such as plastic deformations. Indeed, during its growth […]

The Jewellery by Mazlo

Nov

LA JOAILLERIE is kind of an outsider in the landscape of parisian High Jewellery. This place is indeed neither a gallery nor a shop dedicated to a brand. It is primarily indeed a dream come true for Mazlo, this unconventional author-jeweller, whose family tradition did not at all predestine to exhibit one day his own creations in a place devoted to his philosophy of art. The reason is that in the Mazloum family, jewels cannot be regarded as anything but unique and entirely handmade pieces… ssisted by a personality test, which according to the legend, was developed by the founder of the dynasty, Georgius Sayegh el-Mazloum, the master jewellers of the family successively got the reputation to know how to identify the essence of a personality before making it a portrait through the precious form of a jewel. Yet, as formative as may be the challenge of commissioned work, it could nothing but fail to exhaust the creative fever of an atypical artist like Robert Mazlo. First initiated in the fine art of Phoenician jewellery in the family workshop led by his father in Beirut, he then achieved his studies in the Mecca of the time in the realm of « classical » jewelry-making, the Istituto Benvenuto Cellini in Valenza-Pô, Northern Italy. Paradoxically, he shall go out of this tradition’s temple, graduated with […]

COME AS YOU ART !

Oct

Last June, Karl Mazlo invited a handful of friends to a photo shoot as an introduction to his first solo show which opening will take place in November at LA Joaillerie gallery. The idea was simple: be yourself ! Each participant had to choose and wear one or more jewel(s) of the exhibition, reflecting his/her state of mind. Then each one had to take the pose and to stage him/herself with the modules (wooden sticks) that inspired the creative work of Karl. Today we reveal (finally) the photos. Thanks to vote for the one you think is the most original. The person whose portrait has won the greatest success will win one of the jewels of the “Memories” collection. Get ready to “Like”! Come and visit us for the opening of the “Memories” Exhibition, November 13 !

Le Divin (é)Moi (fr) – Introduction to the exhibition

Apr
22

Les voies de l’artiste sont innombrables pour approcher la question du Divin. Le titre polysémique choisi pour l’exposition annonce l’incarnation en chaque artiste de sa méditation sur le divin exprimée à travers ses oeuvres. Le Divin et moi, le Divin émoi mais aussi le Divin en moi et dans mon oeuvre. ’exposition proposée par LA Joaillerie par Mazlo invite à observer les processus qui agitent l’être humain aux prises avec ses questionnements métaphysiques. Ce faisant, elle renonce au cadre étroit d’une remise en question des dogmes, pour faire de l’Art et de l’intimité de l’artiste, l’espace d’investigation du spirituel, débordant les limites strictes d’une croyance. Les images créées pour cette occasion reflètent le champ référentiel de chaque artiste, exposent de chacun d’eux, origine, éducation, culture, inspirations… Mais toutes ensemble, unies dans un même mouvement, elles témoignent d’une démarche universaliste. Ici, il s’agit moins d’inventer de nouvelles icônes ou de représenter le Divin, que d’en isoler les possibles manifestations en l’homme et dans son environnement. Manière de suggérer le souffle de l’Esprit à l’oeuvre en l’artiste. Renversement ironique. Partis questionner le Divin, les artistes finissent par replacer l’être humain et sa condition au centre de leur propos. Dieu se serait-il fait […]
