Loewe Craft Prize Comes to New York

CRAFT MAGIC: Jonathan Anderson continued the tour of the Loewe Foundation Craft Prize exhibition in New York on Thursday. The exhibit started in April in Madrid with a showcase of the 26 finalists of the 4,000 applicants for the inaugural addition of the Craft Prize and is now in New York at the Chamber Gallery through June 6.
“I’ve wanted to do this project since I joined Loewe,” said Anderson, who’s also shooting his Loewe campaign while he’s in town. “It’s really important to support crafts people like this.” The lineup featured work from various disciplines: Pottery by Sangwoo Kim of South Korea, gold and silversmithing by Robert Baines of Australia, lacquering by Igawa Takeshi of Japan, embroidery by Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone of Buenos Aires, weaving by Anne Low of Vancouver, with whom Anderson is collaborating on an upcoming project, and the winning work of wood carving by Ernst Gamperl of Munich, Germany.
Gamperl’s piece, called “Tree of Life 2” is a large wooden vase carved from a 300-year-old oak tree uprooted during a storm. “I plan to make a collection out of it and to keep all the objects together,” he said. “In two or three years it will

Loewe Sets Prize for Excellence in Craft

PARIS — Recently in Donegal, Ireland, Jonathan Anderson happened upon a gallery sheltering a wizard at basket weaving, Joe Hogan, whose dazzling architectural shapes “looked like Henry Moore sculptures.”
“It’s phenomenal to see how someone can think completely differently,” Anderson said.
The fashion designer’s passion for craftsmanship is expressed in his latest initiative as creative director of Loewe: A new annual international craft prize that comes with 50,000 euros in cash, or $ 57,000 at current exchange rate, along with exposure via a traveling exhibition and catalog.
Disclosing details of the competition in an exclusive interview, Anderson said it’s open to “anyone in the world who feels like they are doing modern craft.”
Submissions are open from Tuesday through Nov. 7 via a dedicated Web site at loewecraftprize.com.
An expert panel is to select 14 finalists by February 2017, with the winner selected by the jury in April. All the objects are to be displayed in Madrid in May and subsequently travel through Europe, Asia and the United States.
The prize’s objective is to recognize “newness and artistic merit in modern craftsmanship,” according to Loewe, noting that the winning item must reflect “functional and aesthetic value” in equal measure, and be realized with a reinterpretation of “traditional methods

Erotic Embroidery Artist Is Not Your Grandma’s Craft Maker

Two edgy, platinum blonde girls in black bikinis pose, showing off tongue rings. Another badass pair gossips behind cupped palms; another lazes on beach towels, sipping beer. This isn’t a hip Instagram feed, an Urban Outfitters catalog or even a photography series. These fun, relaxed scenes were embroidered by artist Alaina Varrone, whose work rethinks the limitations of a needle and thread.

That’s because for her often erotic works, Varrone isn’t inspired by other embroiderists; in an interview with The Huffington Post, she said she was mostly influenced by “history’s pervs and weirdos.”

“My absolute favorite saucy perv is bar none Nell Gwynne and wicked weirdos like Aleister Crowley and Helena Blavatsky, paranoid occultists like H.P. Lovecraft.” 

Since we last featured Varrone’s designs, her aesthetic interests have evolved; she’s begun incorporating trendy fashion choices into her designs. Long, highlighted hair with pops of color, Peter Pan collars, and American Apparel-esque tube socks dress up her works.

She’s also nurtured a budding interest in occult imagery — one of her subjects rocks a Tarot tattoo — and has begun entertaining the idea of creating a series of designs strung together by a cohesive storyline.

“I put so much thought into all these imaginary people and my little worlds, and I’d like to give them some meatier story lines in the future,” Varrone says. “I do have these ongoing stories in my head, I’ve even reused characters.”

Of course, a series isn’t necessary to lend Varrone’s work a narrative quality; her individual images already possess enough subtle details to inspire a story in the mind of an imaginative viewer. Check out her latest, kickass embroidery works below:
