Märta Mattsson

MA work

Like the relationship between a child and its toys, I get obsessed with objects and they become magical to me. When I look at certain objects and materials they start to move, and in my mind they transform into new things. I transform my bizarre fantasies into ornaments, and I invite people to marvel over their oddity.

My jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion. I take seemingly inappropriate materials, making ordinary and familiar objects seem extraordinary and unfamiliar.
