Intro
Scandinavian studio jewellery is simply unimaginable without Tone Vigeland (b. 1938) and her work.
 

Scandinavian studio jewellery is simply unimaginable without Tone Vigeland (b. 1938) and her work. Her distinctive objects flatter the human body, captivate through their dimensions and volume, and yet are assembled from a variety of the tiniest hand-crafted components: tubes of silver wire, precisely cut plates, spheres and eyelets, all in small scale, are invisibly interconnected, and Vigeland’s use of heavily oxidised, almost iron-black silver and steel is a typical feature. The result: art on the human body – highly aesthetic, perfectly executed and always wearable. Around 150 jewellery objects from 1958 to 2010 document the pioneering creative work by Tone Vigeland and are complemented with a selection of objects and sculptures from 1998 to the present day, which can now be seen in an exhibition and publication for the very first time.


Tone Vigeland is represented in numerous museums worldwide, including the Museum of Arts and Design and the Museum of Modern Art, New York (US), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Helen Williams Drutt Collection (US), Designmuseum Danmark, Copenhagen (DK), Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris (FR), The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo (NO), Nationalmuseum, Stockholm (SE), National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (JP), Victoria and Albert Museum, London (UK), Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (DE), Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich (DE).
