Intro
(...) What is particularly distinctive about Christa Lühtje's jewellery is its naturalness of form, free from fashionable compromise and extravagance.(...)
Never led by a program of associations or political statements, Christa Lühtje makes her jewellery with a clear spirit, a virtuoso hand and an infallible instinct for form. And with gold: the metal that since time immemorial seduced men and women with its colour and purity. Nowadays artists do not have to be concerned with superstition or the display of power. Christa Lühtje can concentrate in her work on the rhythm of repetition and the clarity of mathematical shapes. Such a minimalist approach does not have to result in formalism: a refined finish gives the necklaces a casual splendour, the rings, mostly made up from separate segments, caress the finger of the wearer.
Such a jewel is not a mere trinket, but a lifelong compagnon.
