Artist list

Mette Saabye
Mette Saabye addresses the concept of value materialised by her plethora of jewellery that put a spin on the established conventions regarding the value of the material and an artistic enrichment of the once prized but by later generations discarded piece of jewellery or material.
Mette Saabye's eye for aesthetics and her remarkable technical skills bring to this cycle of change new content in jewellery, that is sometimes functional but always lending new value to the essence of the art of jewellery and to jewellery's relationship with the bearer.
Mette Saabye's work is a powerful manifestation of a great talent on the contemporary scene of arts and crafts in Denmark, that once again is placed on the cultural political agenda thanks to artists such as Mette Saabye.
