Theotokos of Vladimir (1131)
TCT Show 2013 speaker Yvonne van Zummeren is one of the most dedicated and innovative 3D printing jewellery designers on the planet. Her label Dyvsign’s Classic collection, and in particular La Gerbe bracelets – featured in the Dutch Grazia - have become synonymous with 3D printing’s burgeoning artistic jewellery community.
Dyvsign is proud to now introduce a new collection of 3D printed finery, the RUSSIA Collection. In keeping with the brand’s dedication in using works of art as inspiration for 3D printed jewellery, the Russia Collection takes its essence from four of the greatest pieces/periods of Russian Art.
Yvonne’s art history academia courses through the veins of this delectable and diverse collection. The jewellery designs reflect on close to 900 years of art from Mother Russia ranging from the Byzantine Theotokos of Vladimir to Post-Impressionist style 1920s Kazimir Malevich.
The collection encases four sub-collections each with its own cultural theme:
- The first sub-collection are nylon polyamide fans that take inspiration from Russia’s most renowned female artist, Natalia Goncharova, and her work Spanish Woman with Fan. Natalia was inspired by the dress of Spanish women in the first quarter of the 20th century, in particular the use of fans as not only a method to control body temperature but as a way of communicating their marital status. Dyvsign’s 3D printed fans come in four different colours; black, white, orange, bright pink and come with gold or silver- plated earring hooks and ball chains. Yvonne hopes that women across the globe will use these fans to form their own, very 21st century, form of communication.
- The second sub-collection in the line takes inspiration from a Russian group of avant-garde artists founded in 1910. Artistic society the Jack/Knave of Diamonds (which incidentally included Goncharova) were inspired by New Western European art trends such as Post-Impressionism, Cubism and Expressionism. The group saw the Jack of Diamonds as a symbol of young enthusiasm and passion and Dyvsign has drawn from that symbol for a their jewellery. There’s a diamond shaped necklace available in the playing card’s most recognisable colours; red, black and gold. The chain of said necklace is no ordinary chain either, it represents the sword held by the jack.
- The third takes the centre piece of Kazimir Malevich’s Summer Landscape painting (1929), the blossoming tree, and gives it a 3D printed makeover as a pendant and bracelet available in four colours. This particular work of Malevich’s is unusual in that it is strangely conservative. The reason for this is that Malevich, a pioneer of geometric abstract art, was banned from exhibiting his previous works by the Stalinist prohibition of bourgeois art. Instead of painting in his own Constructivism and Suprematism styles he was forced to create Social Realist art, this is the most famous example of his work in this period.
- The final sub-section is somewhat of a departure for Dyvsign, in that it isn’t 20th Century art that the jewellery uses a muse but a 12th century Byzatine piece depicting the Virgin Mary clutching the Baby Jesus. Though Theotokos of Vladimir is not painted in Russia it has been in the country since 1131, when it was presented to a Russian archduke by the leaders of Constantinople. The image has become a Russian icon - the Russians believe they owe their prosperity to it. It is the most copied icon in the world - most notably in popular culture, Mel Gibson’s Icon Productions uses the left eye of the painting as its logo. Dyvsign has taken the aureole (the halo of light around religious figures heads in artistic depictions) of the Virgin Mary and comes as a necklace, bracelet and earrings. The jewellery comes in blue and white nylon polyamide as well as 24k gold-plated stainless steel.
The collection will become available in the four stages and is a fantastic example of how 3D printing technologies can be used. At Euromold one of the biggest growth areas in the industry was undoubtedly jewellery, to name but a few: Formlabs, EnvisionTEC, DWS Srl and Imaginarium all talked to Personalize about this growing sector.
Dyvisgn is already at the forefront of this flourishing 3D printed jewellery movement and with the RUSSIA Collection the label and its ingenious designer Yvonne van Zummeren are forging (or in fact, printing) out further ahead.
