MEEMWARE
DESIGN CONSCIOUS JEWELRY FOR YOUR EVERYDAY

At MeemWare we believe in the autonomy of a medium. We embrace the beautiful patina of polymer clay instead of resisting its naturally occurring textures. The juxtaposition of smooth with the uneven creates a harmonious design. Each piece is considered an individual art piece, which is sculptural and truly one of a kind.

Our method also takes inspiration from the Japanese Kurinuki technique. Kuri Nuki is a traditional Japanese form of hand-building. The word literally means ‘carving out’ and traditionally involves shaping a solid block of clay, to create a vessel. We use this technique to encourage the idea of spontaneity and being ‘alive’, as the work focuses on the interactions and marks of the maker. These marks are intentional and are of great value to the entirety of the piece. The more raw, textural and sculptural, the more successful a finished piece is believed to be.

The concept of modern luxury is evolving and we as a brand, stand for Alternate Luxury. Alternate Luxury is about actively choosing smaller brands that engage in practices of creativity, care and consciousness. The mindful creation process includes intentional decision making at every step. Some core values to think about: whose hands did it pass through during the making process? What is the design philosophy? How are the production processes made more ethical and sustainable? What is the social impact? The limited number of designs created, gives you an opportunity to be a proud owner of a special treasure. It is essential to really fall in love with the holistic being of an object, so we can live with it longer and be kinder to our planet.

The Hand of Hope is inspired by artwork created by Mustaali Raj symbolizing strength and hope on the path of social justice. In collaboration with First Nations artist John Velten, the drawing was brought to life in the form of sterling silver earrings. The open palm motif is an ancient symbol of safety and healing that is layered with meanings over time through the lens of different cultures. Some of the other renditions are known as the hand of Fatima, the (K)hamsa, hand of Miriam, hand of Mary, the Healer’s hand, and the Abhayamudra – a gesture of fearlessness that dispels fear, accords divine protection and much more.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Mustaali Raj is a visual artist and graphic designer with an inter-disciplinary practice. Being both a third culture kid and an avid traveller, his multi-faceted sense of belonging and experiences play an important role in exploring intersection of identities through his work.

Born and raised in Kwikwetlem (Coquitlam), John Velten is a multi-disciplinary artist, whose mixed roots stem from Europe, with German ancestry and North-West Territories with Dene ancestry. These contrasting lineages speak to his perspective, ability as an artist and affluence of different cultures. He is also the co-founder of First Nations Gallery – a jewelry production and collaboration hub for First Nations artists.
