Mikael Sellersjö - Jewellery

"Perhaps there is an absolute necessity in acknowledging what is past to allow the brand-new necessary, being percipient and current towards what is to come. I allow my jewellery to become structure for the past where it is accepted for what it is, relaxed in the present.
A big concern in my work is the ability for objects to hold their own truths. Can a thing carry and convey something that makes movement possible?
It is beautiful with things that can be kept over a long time. Where time can be measured thru its wear.

I try to visualize leftovers of my past thru working directly in the materials, without any visual aid. In my practical work I sometimes use a dentist´s drill. I’m calm with its sound; Peculiar to listen for a thousand hours to a little screaming pig. A meticulous ponder, an ocular engagement, together with memories of folk concerning the shapes. In thoughts of the heroic, in floral splendor, glass and forgiveness. And on the moon.

The work treats a wish to devote to things a rightful amount of time to be accomplished or destroyed. "

Annual Report 2012

Time passing by
It has been a peculiar and rewarding year of 2012
Since September I had my stuff appear in eight fine exhibitions of a varied nature. Both local and international. In between a few commission pieces has left my table.
I have been making smaller wood objects/sculptures and silver jewelry.
The imagery cover some of the artwork I made last year and a little from the group exhibitions.
