D.C. Nazi who attended Charlottesville rally plotted shooting, had contact with Pittsburgh killer

The United States has a clear and present danger facing us: white supremacists are on the attack and they are on a murderous rampage that must be stopped. A plot by two D.C.-area brothers to commit mass murder unraveled when 23-year-old Edward William Clark committed suicide on the day of the Pittsburgh shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue. James Clark, Edward’s brother, had been in contact with Pittsburgh shooter Robert Bowers on the website Gab, a haven for white supremacists after other hate sites have been shut down. Both men were active on the site and James Clark had been in contact not only with Robert Bowers, but with James Fields, the man who drove his vehicle into a crowd, killing Heather Heyer. From The Daily Beast: Clark, a member of white supremacist circles who was photographed with alleged Charlottesville “Unite the Right” murder suspect James Alex Fields in 2017 and posted on alt-right social network Gab, shot himself with a pistol shortly after the attack.  Edward Clark may have committed suicide rather than carry out a planned attack. But Clark had much more ammunition on him than was necessary, leading Clark’s relatives to believe he had originally intended to commit violence that same day against other people.   In fact, both Clark brothers attended the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville and were reportedly planning a large-scale attack in the hopes of starting a race war. The Clark brothers were increasingly visible at alt-right white supremacist events. YouTube user OnePeoplesProjecttv (h/t Huffington Post) interviewed both Clark brothers at an event outside the White House in 2017. The event was organized by White Supremacist Richard Spencer, who had been famously punched in the face at a similar event only a few months prior. Jeffrey Clark identified himself as a Nazi and argued with the cameraman.

Siegelson Puts up Sapphire and Diamond Bracelet by Seaman Schepps for Sale

Siegelson has put up Sapphire and Diamond Bracelet by Seaman Schepps, New York, circa 1935, for sale.As per an official release, the bracelet is composed of five segments of flower design set with cabochon sapphires with diamond accents; mounted in platinum. It has 44 cabochon sapphires, 196 round diamonds, Signed Seaman Schepps and measures 7¼ × 1½  inches.“An American jeweler famous for bold retro style pieces with colorful assemblages of stones, Seaman Schepps was a self-made entrepreneur and a self-taught jeweler. Born in New York in 1881, he owned antique stores in California and New York before opening a Madison Avenue store in 1934 where he became popular for his unique and colorful assemblages. Known as “America’s Court Jeweler,” his clients included Rockefellers, DuPonts, Mellons, and the Duchess of Windsor,” says the release.As per the release, Seaman Schepps was inspired by the bright, colorful designs of Verdura at Chanel, Boivin, Belperron, and Cartier. He traveled to Paris, where he saw the great jewelers, but then he went on to explore the world becoming particularly enamored with Hong Kong and the unusual corals, carved snuff bottles, and ivory chess pieces that could be turned into remarkable jewelry pieces. In his Madison Avenue showroom, he catered to the newly independent and newly affluent (typically American) woman. His creations were bright and oversized, taking the bold designs of the French jewelers he admired and supersizing it for the New York market.Composed of cabochon sapphires in varying hues on platinum cushions accented with diamonds, this flower-form bracelet creates a statement when worn on the wrist. A Schepps cabochon and sapphire bracelet appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine in December of 1935, prominently featured on a pair of hands typing a bow, and again in April 1941, this time on a hand turning a magazine page. Schepps’s designs were powerful enough to carry the cover of the top fashion magazine, alone, not as an accessory to a clothing ensemble, according to the release.“This wonderfully oversized bracelet appears to be an almost random composition at first glance, evincing the assemblage feel of a Schepps piece. At closer look, however, the flower forms emerge and the designer has cleverly arranged the centers so the flowers are tilted in different directions, to keep the piece off-kilter avoiding strict symmetry and maintaining a playful quality. This remarkable bracelet is just as wonderful and wearable as when it was first created,” says the release.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the bracelet  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin

‘Look Out’ by Anne Marie Laureys at Jason Jacques Gallery, New York

There is a wholeness in the tension that holds her sculptures together, which lies in the blurring of the interior and exterior boundaries.Jason Jacques Gallery is showcasing new work by Anne Marie Laureys, a Belgian artist based in Russeignies. Titled “Look Out,” this is the artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States.According to a press note on the Gallery website, “Over the course of her lengthy career, Laureys' vision of what constitutes a vessel— and wherein lies its potential— has been refined into an effervescent series of forms reminiscent of gently-gaping heart valves, clouds, sand dunes, and rippling waves fashioned of paper-thin stoneware.”“The current iteration of her critically acclaimed work arose from the desire to maintain the clay’s tactility and the exciting potential of the medium, in tandem with satisfying a need to test its limitations,” states the gallery.There is a wholeness in the tension that holds her sculptures together, which lies in the blurring of the interior and exterior boundaries; thus the cloud-like solids approach the form of the vessel not only as a frame or container for void but as void itself. That is not to say that these pieces are empty, for Laureys conceives of her vessels as “metaphors for feelings.”The artist says that she likes her ceramics to have a sense of excitement and freshness, and they must be tactile. Making is exploring the physical law of the material, clay, in order to give form at the sensual engagement she has with. It is a celebration of a tense moment of meeting to create spacious, fine, delicate forms that reveal the speed, fluency and the ultra plasticity of clay. Into her thrown and altered forms, she tries to put an extremely personal sensibility that goes hand in hand with the tension and flexibility of a wet pot.She aims to develop a great variety of senses, to show the results of a very physical and palpable human gesture which is mysterious like the sexual experience.Anne Marie Laureys’ life-long love for clay began during her studies at the Luca School of Art in Ghent, Belgium. Since her first experience working with the material, she has not gone a day without it and considers throwing pottery to be her personal language of communication with the medium.Her work has been exhibited at the Icheon Biennale in South Korea, in Taiwan (Yingge), Japan (Mino), China (Shanghai), and more recently in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, France and at Florida’s Boca Raton Museum of Art for the exhibition Regarding George Ohr: Contemporary Ceramics in the Spirit of the Mad Potter (2017-18). The exhibition is on view through December 11, 2018 at Jason Jacques Gallery, 29 East 73rd Street, New York, NY 10021, USA.For more information, visit: http://www.jasonjacques.com/Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.  https://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
