Metal Atelier is the mark under which Anna Butwell has been making art jewelry since 2010. All work is designed and fabricated in the Volksluxus Goldsmith Collective in the Kreuzberg neighborhood of Berlin.
Anna says - "My work explores a perception of beauty that is imperfect and transient- essentially Japanese Wabi Sabi- with a modern punk rock aesthetic. Ideas and patterns from the natural world, such as animal print, have been co-opted in fashion for generations. I extrapolate these ideas into small scale metal work, creating updated pieces based on age old techniques. Most of my collections are left slightly rough, showing the imperfections of the hand of the maker."
