With training coming for contrasting sources, the high drama of Parisian haute couture from his studies at ESMOD, and the anarchist approach learned while working at Galiano, the jewelry created by Tobias Wistisen reflects both of these extremes. Fine materials are used to created edgy objects.
The pieces also reflect the keen and unorthodox approach to the materials and forms of Wistisen’s background in apparel design. With meticulously hand-treated materials, each piece is unique. Despite being rough and aggressive, the work is clearly of the highest quality.
The pieces also reflect a well-worn aesthetic that only becomes enhanced as they actually are well worn.
