Hazel Ang and Allun Turner Say Hello

I did not realise how complicated life could get when you have a company named Kyfio UG but a website named  Hazel did the proper thing sending her artwork to Munich Artists but there is no legal entity for Munich Artists just the website and the the post office would not give me the package even though my name is on a business card with Munich Artists.  I needed a rubber stamp.  After creating a rubber stamp from a stamp kit, I stamped the pickup form with “Munich Artists ” and they gave me the package saving it from a return journey to America.   I opened the package and had a great blue surprise from Hazel Ang.

Then, Allun Turner walked in with his piece…


So many wonderful artists and artwork came into the studio today.  I feel really lucky to get to meet new artists and have artists I know join in on the fun.  I’m Looking forward to seeing more of your art pieces coming my way and filling the second studio table with your creations!

The Talk Art Jewellery Installation by Ines Seidel and Allun Turner

Allun Turner and Ines Seidel have been working on an installation at the Friday Gallery during the month of February 2016.

The artists were asked to develop an installation that incorporated their art jewellery and the idea of a conversation.

Over the month, the two artists emailed, met in person, worked in their own studios and at the Friday gallery.   Emmy Horstkamp videotaped the artists discussing their installation and their artworks and asked the artists to share how the other artist influenced their work in the space.

If you would like to visit the gallery, one of the artists will be there each day from  900 to 1700. Please remember that the Friday gallery is in the courtyard. You will need to push open the green doors and walk into the courtyard where you will then see a big pink sign designating the Friday Gallery as one of Munich Jewellery Week’s galleries.

Over the next few days, I will be sharing photographs of Art Jewellery.   Art Jewellery week is one of the largest art Jewellery shows and we are lucky to have this event in Munich.   Please visit the following locations and support the art jewellers by asking questions, appreciating their work and spreading the news that this event is happening in Munich.

  • Visit the Friday Gallery downtown at Frauenstrasse 18.   See the Art Jewellery created by Ines Seidel and Allun Turner.  I’ve asked them to incorporate their art jewellery into an installation.  Ask them about the process and their words.

  • One of the first Jewellery Artists that I met in Munich was Laura Bradshaw-Heap.  Laura and Rachel Darboune have created a really cool project called “Rubbish to Gold.”  You can see a video about their project at the main Messe and ALSO at Studio Gabi Green Gollierstr. 17, 80339 Munich, Germany  Here is their event page for Rubbish to Gold edition no. 2.  They are having an auction of art pieces so go visit their auction page and make a bid.

All the videos will be on our website for you to watch and, I want to edit them together at the end of the installation. This is not a classic documentary but a recording of how the three of us are dealing with the creations process within the Friday Gallery – two artists and the owner of the space.
