Artist list

Märta Mattsson
Marta Mattsson is a UK graduate who is also participating in HomeWorks for LDF. Mattsson says that she sees beauty in things that other people find strange or are even repulsed by. Mattsson’s jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion.
Mattsson takes seemingly inappropriate materials, making ordinary and familiar objects seem extraordinary 
and unfamiliar.
