Now I am back from a lovely holiday – I hope you have enjoyed the summer as well.
It is a pleasure to present more work by inspiring Märta Mattsson. I have been looking out for the inspiration from nature in the jewellery I have been blogging about and the work by Märta is another good example.
She writes about her work:
Somebody once told me,”You make jewellery for children, not for adults”. And when I was a student in Tokyo the Japanese students in my class came up with a new word to describe my work. The word was KimoKawaii and it’s a combination of two words kawaii (cute) and kimoi (disgusting).
I make jewellery for adults but with a touch of inspiration from my childhood. When I was a child I played with stuffed animals, slugs and other living animals. I have always been drawn to both biology and art and in my work I am trying to combine my interests. Nature is a great source of inspiration but so is Pokemon…
Take a look at her website.
