Meet the Artist
Ane Christensen grew up in Copenhagen and moved to London in 1993 to study HND Jewellery Design at Sir John Cass Faculty of Art. She went on to work as an assistant for two designer silversmiths and completed her MA in Metalwork & Silversmithing at the Royal College of Art, before establishing her practise in 1999. Ane lives and works in East London.
‘All my work begins with the simple geometry of bowl forms and flat sheet. I often include metal wire, used like three-dimensional line drawing in space. Applying traditional techniques such as hand piercing, drilling and soldering, I enjoy working in a variety of metals combining them in an exploration of colour and texture.’
