Gitte Bjørn

Published: 29.03.2023


Gitte Bjørn, born in 1965 and a Danish citizen, is a skilled goldsmith trained (1986-1990). With a design education at the Institute for Precious Metals (1991-1993), she both worked on a contract basis with Georg Jensen and had a workshop shop in the old part of Copenhagen. For the last 25 years, she has concentrated on teaching, combined with unique items for exhibitions and competitions. Gitte has previously taught professionals at her vocational school and now runs an independent jewellery school in collaboration with the association Smyk 2000. She works in different scales, from bronze sculpture, over silver corpus to traditional smaller gold jewellery.


I am a trained goldsmith, but that does not define the materials I choose to work with or the scale of my art.
Regardless of size or materials, my works are always sculptural and always textural. From mammoth, diver's playgrounds in rock and concrete across large bronzes and silverware to minuscule jewellery in precious metals and stones, my art is both figurative and narrative, but always imbued with my sense of humour and, at times, naivité.
I never repeat myself, always testing my limits, artistically as well as in terms of my craftsmanship. How does it evolve?
