Where craft and art meet

  • • Sebastian Schildt runs his own studio, gallery and shop in Stockholm
  • • He recently opened a restaurant as a platform for contemporary craft
  • • He explores the line between art and craft

As a child, silversmith Sebastian Schildt attended a Waldorf school in Stockholm where he was encouraged to explore many different types of craft, including forging. After graduating, he approached the acclaimed Swedish silversmith Jan Brunk and became his apprentice. Today, he’s running one of the most productive silver and gold studios in Sweden, as well as a gallery and shop in central Stockholm, where he exhibits his own craft and jewellery as well as the work of others. The silver jugs with their dynamic, sometimes dramatic, shapes have become his signature. Sebastian is interested in exploring the line between art and craft and asks why the former is often given a higher status.

The pitchers and jugs have become Sebastian Schildt’s signature. Except the handle, this one is forged in one piece, through a hammering process with a long series of heavy to fine hammers, and made to be used every day. One pitcher takes more than 100 hours to make.
