CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker Projects

Gijs Bakker (1942) is a renowned Dutch jewellery and industrial designer. In 1996, Bakker co-founded ‘chp…?’ , which will cease to exist after 23 years. With this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

About CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker Projects

Gijs Bakker wanted to show the international design world that a piece of jewellery is more than a decorative fashion accessory. For ‘chp…?’, originality of the concept is central to the design and is supported by a fitting choice of material and technology. 
By showing that jewellery design evolves just like any other design discipline, ‘chp…?’ fills an existing void by making designer jewelry more widely accessible. ‘chp…?’ invited internationally acclaimed designers to create special pieces for the collection. All first prototypes ever made of designs for ‘chp…?’ are in the collection of the Design Museum Den Bosch. After 23 years ‘chp…?’ will cease to exist and with this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

"Often people want to describe me as ‘making more than just jewelry’ - they prefer to describe me as ‘an artist who makes small sculptures’. Jewelry making in their eyes is not an esteemed enough practice for an artist. I remind them whatever place jewelry has in the contemporary visual arts hierarchy that it has along history, perhaps the oldest. In fact the oldest examples we have of human material history confirm that it is jewellery that provides the earliest evidence of our capacity to think symbolically. Jewelry still has that capacity - that’s what keeps me interested – I’m an artist but I’m still a jeweler."

Born in Nelson in 1953, Warwick’s skills are largely self-taught. He took up jewelry-making in Perth in 1972, following two years of travel. Returning to New Zealand in 1973, Warwick initially established a workshop in Nelson before moving to Auckland in 1975. After a brief stint as a manufacturing jeweler he first joined Lapis, a co-operative jewelry workshop, in 1977, and a year later became a partner in Auckland's now highly successful jewelry co-operative Fingers.In the 1980s as a prominent member of this group, he revolutionised contemporary jewelry practice in Aotearoa. This work was characterised by the use of natural materials such as bone, stone and shell.

Warwick Freeman lives in Auckland.
