About the artisit: Inga-Britt “Ibe” Dahlquist is one of Sweden’s most interesting modernist silversmiths, originally from the island of Gotland. She had her breakthrough in the 1950s with her characteristic organic silver jewelry combined with local natural elements such as fossils and stones. Dahlquist also worked for Georg Jensen from 1965, creating pieces that were more strictly modernist, however with organic expressions that resonated with her work in her own studio. Ibe Dahlquist shared a studio in Visby with fellow silversmith Olof Barve for several decades. Barve executed the jewelry while Dahlquist more often focused on the designs.
