CHJ Inspo: DAN FLAVIN

Carrie Hoffman Jewelry often takes inspiration from other artists, time periods, and antique designs. The vision of Dan Flavin is a perfect bridge between architectural thought-piece installations, and architectural, wearable, art considering his unique use of color, shape, and space. Dan Flavin was born of Irish decent in New York, on April 1, 1933. His twin brother, David, who suffered and died from polio in 1962, served as inspiration to one if his earliest series, Icons, which were box-like structures made out of various materials, then illuminated from the sides with different types of lighting. From here, his particular methodology and use of light sources as a medium became his signature staple, and helped influence a new way to make art: through fluorescent, industrial, and commercial lighting. In the pictures below, you can see that his style can be reflected in much of today’s world, whether it be through signage, contemporary art, fashion, or jewelry design.

CHJ Inspo: DONALD JUDD

When it comes to finding inspiration for my jewelry, I find that much of my enthusiasm stems from my love of architecture and interior design. The CHJ Judd ring was essentially born from minimalism- an art movement focused on paired-down design principles; a movement which was possibly a reaction to the over- embellished abstract expressionism that came before it. Many artists experimented with minimalism, but only some mastered it. Donald Judd, a sculpture and furniture designer based out of New York, was one of these minimalist pioneers who helped paved the way for better design. Here we see the Corner Frame chair, next to our Judd ring (clearly named after my muse) which can be worn three ways!
