Formens frigörelse – Konsthantverk och design under debatt i 1960-talets Sverige
For 50 years, Swedish artist and silversmith Kerstin Öhlin Lejonklou has created jewellery with sculptural precision. Internationally recognised with one of the most prestigious contemporary art awards, the Prince Eugen Medal, Öhlin Lejonklou is one of Sweden’s most innovative and enterprising jewellery artists. In this book, author Sanna Svedestedt explores the artist’s journey from her early experimentation with circles and cubes in the 1960s, to her later work in silver, gold and precious stones. The book is lavishly illustrated with rare material from the artist’s archive, as well as new images produced specifically for this gorgeous volume.
