Artist list

Ted Noten
The Japanese artist Hokusai immortalized the most enchanting landscape he knew in a group of woodprints: ‘36 views of Mount Fuji’. These images inspired Ted Noten to develop 36 jewels for just as many types of women. Noten also made images: each woman was portrayed in a three dimensional collage. The shoes, car tyres and other 'objects trouvés' he used, seem a far cry from regular jewellery. The artist became a jewellerymaker at the moment he reworked the scale and details of these collages in a computer. State-of-the-art technology allowed him to produce objects in any material and seize: fit for a finger, arm or neck. Out of each collage just one golden jewel will be developed. In addition to these unique pieces, the designer Noten manufactured small editions in innovative plastics, titanium or steel. Ted Noten's work is a radically contemporary approach of the age-old craft of the goldsmith. With it he manages to seduce not only his 36 women: wether you are a lover of sculpture, of exclusive gold or wearable jewellery, his work will be hard to resist.
