Mette T Jensen
Mette T Jensen's designs use 3-d forms in sculptural pieces that can be worn, but also has an existence on their own. The aim is to make viewers wonder, smile, dream or see new possibilities.
Mette works with a mixture of precious and non-precious materials; exploring and using the special characteristics each material holds. The inspiration in some cases being the material itself or the way it is normally used, in others coming from sculptures, architecture, mathematics or other areas where interesting forms ask to be translated into jewellery.
In Mette's main collection she uses wood and silver; both materials are bent into forms inspired by furniture and ships. The flexibility and lightness of the wood makes it possible to create rather large pieces as well as unusual fittings and forms that challenge the imagination.
