About this project

The wearable sculptures of jewellery artist Ute Decker are a meditation on the richness of simplicity. She sculpts space, movement, volume, and a subtle texture into a carefully composed interplay of light and shadow with a richly evocative sense of space and story. This essential purity is typical of her work in its minimalism.
When not worn, her pieces are equally small independent sculptures in their own right that are as powerful displayed off the body as worn on the body.
