Anna Butwell

Since 2010, Anna has produced jewelery, art, and object under the mark Metal Atelier. In January 2017, she packed up her studio and decamped for Berlin. Soon after, she joined Volksluxus, a goldsmith collective and art gallery in Kreuzberg. Most days she can be found there, turning metal into liquid.


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.
