Artist list

Nelli Tanner
Numerous utensils that once kept daily life going, have disappeared; worn out, gone to pieces, turned obsolete. If ever they emerge nowadays, their purpose and application is often a mystery. Nelli Tanner likes to collect these kind of objects: their shapes are intriguing en the connection with days gone by is saturated with melancholy. As a jewellery designer she is used to listening to materials; she is sensitive to the past stuck to a decrepit surface. By investigating shapes and associations she translates these echo’s of the past to our time, looking for something that might have a fresh meaning.

Jewels are an attractive medium in this respect: they are objects that are suitable for keeping in your hand, meant to be used and willful enough to make an artistic statement. In this way artists enrich our world: continuously they reinvent beauty.
