Bess Kristoffersen has graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts twice: initially in textile design, and then later in precious metals design. Reflecting this, her output currently includes woven tapestries, commercial and craft textiles, installations and jewellery. The continual exploration of surface and texture and an extensive craft-based knowledge all influence Kristoffersen’s work. When designing, she applies discoveries made in her metalwork to her textiles and visa versa. Her work remains resolutely contemporary, yet also respects traditional forms and techniques from all over the world.
