The tortured gold of Orit Elhanati

Orit Elhanati’s style is the result of a double heritage, Danish on her mother’s side and Israeli on her father’s. It also stands out for its very beautiful work with her favorite material, yellow recycled gold. “I’ve always hated polishing,” says Elhanati. In her Copenhagen workshop, she plays tirelessly with the material, torturing, hammering, denting it. She evokes the oriental jewelry of her paternal grandmother, the textures of the Sinai mountains and the patinated coins found in the alleyways of Jerusalem. A few stones, opals, malachite, subtly illuminate this beautifully intricate work.
