HYGGE - (Hue-gah)
Gemma's work celebrates the traditional Danish concept “Hygge”, a word with no English translation which embodies feelings such as cosiness, intimacy and contentment. For Gemma it is the indescribable feeling of sitting inside on a rainy day with a warm drink or gathering around a campfire in the early evening with a few friends. Her intentions are to create a collection of vessels that bring comfort to the owner, where they can create their own meaning to the Danish word. By combining fine silver with coloured yarn, Gemma strives to make her pieces soft and sensual by bringing a warmth to what is seen as a cold metal.
