Lisa Björke

I make body related objects, not always jewellery, I try to work out from the conditions of my objects, what is the relation to the body? Do they have a relation or does the object relate to the room, is the room then the body?

Jewellery making is about learning to know, know about and also understanding the making and why it is important.

My work has come to be about celebrating the craft and the worker as a phenomenon. I am using elements that feels like home, that holds traditions and talk about craftsmanship. Objects related to the human body.

My work is not me but one way or another it is reflecting who I am and when life changes it also reflects on your artistic work.
I am a woman
I am a mother
I am a maker.


About
Allt är relativt- The deconstruction of the known


This is the result of my project year at Research Lab, Konstfack. A work that has lead to the deconstruction of a working method that had stagnated, where I have challenged what was known to me and the discovery of new ways and new expressions. My work has come to be about celebrating the craft and the worker as a phenomenon. I am using elements that feels like home, that holds traditions and talk about craftsmanship. Objects related to the human body.

About
Inner Nomad
Iron- Fe (from Latin: ferrum) -atomic number 26


Iron is the cheapest and one of the most abundant of all metals, the most common element forming the planet Earth as a whole, forming Earth's outer and inner core.

I value the iron for it's industrial features, it is hard and sustainable and to me precious...
I invest time, thought and stories and I raise the value with every minute.
Iron is buildings, transportation, weapons, jewellery and a lot more, Iron is inside us and around us-
Iron is society.

-A traveller, a nomad, a human, an animal, a bird.
To settle, to nest, to find a home
