View

My main source of inspiration is painted metal, machinery and houses.
I use materials that might be thought of as useless in the world of traditional jewellery. I often use a coloured surface on my materials since I am fascinated by paint used as protection and a covering, decorative layer. The applied colour is a layer of paint sometimes a bit worn off, which puts the object in the perspective of time.
The starting point for the series VIEW was a view over a river bank. Late summer, early autumn and the air felt fresh and reliving after a hot summer. The smell of moist soil and the cool blue sky. Still a bit of green grass. The landscape dressed in beige colour tones just before the trees turn red. This colour scale merged together with shapes from industrial landscapes, silhouettes of buildings, bridges and train tracks train tracks stretching across the fields.
