Ute Decker is a London-based artist-jeweler. Described as ‘wearable sculptures,’ her unique and limited edition creations are minimalist yet confidently sculptural. One of the first jewelers in the world to champion Fair-trade gold, Ute selects only the finest sustainable materials, either 100% recycled silver or gold sourced from the small Sotrami artisanal mining cooperative in the highlands of Peru to hand-craft her unique pieces of jewelry.
Ute’s work is suggestive of an architectural language playing with volume, space and movement until the choreography of the clean geometric lines and the dynamic curvatures are distilled into an evocative construction. Described as ‘geometric poetry’, the resulting visually compelling sculptures with their rich textures and unique presence exude a seemingly effortless serenity. Her jewels fascinate with exciting surprises and some can be a sculpture, a ring as well as a pendant.
Recently featured as one of the UK’s top 10 jewelers, her work has been shown in more than 50 exhibitions across the globe from Paris, Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, and New York to Design Basel. She has been published in a wide selection of Art, Fashion, Design, Craft, Luxury and Architecture publications, and her work is in several notable private collections as well as in the permanent collection of Museum Barbier-Mueller.
