Katarina Kotselainen, Kalle Kotselainen, Jens A. Clausen. EDGE In the VAULT of A-Gallery
The exhibition is extended until Wednesday, 29 July!
From Friday 2. July, A-Gallery is hosting the exhibition of Katarina Kotselainen, Kalle Kotselainen and Jens A. Clausen.
Three jewellery artists, Katarina Kotselainen, Kalle Kotselainen and Jens A. Clausen came together in a forge in Tartu to craft knives, jewellery and other objects. They used different metals, such as Damascus steel, stainless steel and silver, but also wood, horn and bone. The title of the exhibition, “Tera/ Edge” has multiple meanings, with the Estonian word “tera” referring to the edge of a knife, as well as to the material left over in the process of forging. The small amount of surplus material cannot be made into a knife blade, but can be used for making other smaller objects and jewellery.
Katarina Kotselainen has studied at the Estonian Academy of Arts Department of Jewellery and Blacksmithing. Has exhibited in exhibitions around the world since 2001 and is member of the Estonian Artists Association since 2008.
Kalle Kotselainen has designed and crafted jewellery for over ten years. In 2019 he graduated from the blacksmithing program at the Vana-Vigala Technical and Service School.
Jens A. Clausen has studied at the Staatluche Zeichenakademie Hanau and since 2012 works at the Estonian Academy of Arts Department of Jewellery and Blacksmithing as a goldsmith. He has been a member of the Estonian Artists Association since 2014 and a member of the Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts.
