Jewellery by Grete Prytz Kittelsen (1917-2010). I remember seeing a woman with the bracelet on the first picture some years ago and I had to stop her and ask who had made it. She told me Grete Prytz Kittelsen and wrote it on a note, and I’ve been a fan ever since.

Saturday I got a guided tour at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. The guide, Camilla Hegsbro, did an excellent job showing us the studios and workshops of the metal art and jewellery faculty. I was thrilled, as you can imagine! Camilla is a 3rd year bachelor student at metal art and jewellery. The guided tours were part of the Oslo Open concept I wrote about earlier.

Anna Talbot was wearing a Camilla David ring. Talbots work is also quite fenomenal.

On the way home we obviously stopped here:

So yesterday was at the opening of Galleri Format. They’ve given the place a facelift and are now celebrating their 20th anniversary with the exhibition Graft – an exhibition mixed with established and new artists, like Anna Talbot, within arts and crafts. More info here.

If you’re in Oslo today you can go and see Graft at Galleri Format or visit the some of the 237 open studios of artists with Oslo Open.
