"ADAPTATION - CANVAS" is my newest approach to jewellery and my main
interest here has been to investigate the status of craft in our culture.
The pieces are 3-dimensional objects made of canvas covered wood.
The technique of nailing metal sheets to a wooden base has been used
throughout history in sacred and secular applied arts. The materials I use
hold their own meanings; shot from my father's shotgun, tin from heirlooms,
coins, precious metals and of course the canvas. Karen Pontoppidan
