Intro
Christine Matthias is based in Halle/Saale, Germany, where she studied at the Jewellery Department of Burg Giebichenstein, University of Art and Design with Dorothea Prühl from 1996 to 2002. Before that, she studied Interior Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover, including a semester abroad at Politecnico Milan in Italy what left behind an influence of architecture in her works. She participated in several group exhibitions in Europe and the United States and had solo exhibitions in the Netherlands, Austria, and Italy. Among others, she was awarded the Marzee Prize, Nijmegen, in 2008, and received the Grassi award in 2015, Germany. In 2019, she held a lectureship in the department of Metal Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts HAWK Hildesheim, Germany.

Statement

My jewellery is based on large, clear forms. My works are chased, mounted, and composed architectonically, yet created graphically. The line leads me to symmetrical forms, even grid, or a rhythmic repetition. I use large forms and look for reduced shapes that make clear, unambiguous signs on the body. Despite the rigidity of form, there are small irregularities, making the pieces lively.
