Tore Svensson
Tore Svensson, born 1948 in Alfta, Sweden, studied first at the art-school in Gävle and graduated in 1978 at HDK School of Design and Craft, Gothenburg. From 1989 to 1996 he was lecturer at HDK and afterwards he worked as professor for two years at the Jewellery department. His work includes jewellery and objects and is presented in private and public collections as well as in museums and all over the world. He is a recipient of several awards, among others from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee and the Herbert Hofmann Prize.


Tore on his work:
The projects I work with stretches over a long period of time and a new one emerges often from an ongoing one. The beginning and the end of them might be difficult to discern. The material I mainly use is steel with its different properties and qualities that suites to the results I’m looking for. One of the most important parts of the final result is the surface. I try to reach variations in the surfaces by different techniques like etching, gilding and painting. The shapes I’m working with are reduced to the necessary and are inspired by my surroundings.
