“The body is the canvass, but even more than that, it is alive, always changing and moving. That is why it is such an exciting challenge to make wearable sculptures.”
Recently named as one of the UK’s top 10 jewellers, the work of Ute Decker has been shown in more than 60 exhibitions across the globe by such renowned art jewellery galleries as Didier and Elisabetta Cipriani (Design Basel 2015). Ute's pieces are in several notable private and public collections including the Alice & Louis Koch Collection, the Helen Drutt Collection, the Musée Barbier-Mueller as well as the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Described as ‘wearable sculptures’, the unique and limited edition creations by jewellery artist Ute Decker are minimalist yet confidently sculptural. One of the first in the world to champion Fairtrade gold, Ute selects only the finest sustainable materials, either 100% recycled silver or Fairtrade gold sourced from the small Sotrami artisanal mining cooperative in the highlands of Peru to hand-craft her unique pieces of jewellery. Her jewellery pieces are miniature sculptures in their own right that you happen to be able to wear on the body.
