DesignMarch starts next week – hooray, hooray, hooray!

The exhibition Water and Earth opens in the Nordic house, featuring works by five Finnish and five Icelandic jewelry designers.
One of the partaking designers is Hildur Ýr Jónsdóttir, we hope you like her work!

Hildur Ýr Jónsdóttir studied jewellery design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. In her work, Jónsdóttir uses porcelain and recycled wood, iron, and rubber, which she gathers from her surroundings during long walks. Even if nature doesn’t always serve as a conscious source of inspiration, her works often end up reminiscent of nature.

I come from a volcanic island of untouched beauty. Nature starts in my back yard, and it has a significant effect on my work, imbuing it with energy and providing inspiration.

Jónsdóttir’s works spring from the life around her and from curiosity, which she consciously applies in her process, striving to surprise herself: when she begins a new work, she doesn’t necessarily know what the end result will be.
