All of Britt Anderson’s eighteen karat gold pieces are created using the complicated goldsmithing technique of anticlastic raising, a method requiring both precision and imagination. Anderson draws his free-form patterns directly on a sheet of gold, then hand-hammers them into three-dimensional pieces of jewelry. His fascination with the unlimited design possibilities of lines and curves is evident in his highly polished and sculptured collection.

The energy behind Britt Anderson Designs developed during the course of his artistic and technical preparation, which began in the summer of 1982. A passion for technical mastery created the impetus for a nine-year training odyssey highlighted by an eighteen-month intensive training program with German master goldsmith, Werner Theobald.

During the course of this training, he was introduced to the complicated and demanding metalsmithing technique known as anticlastic forming. This technique develops flat sheets of gold into flexible sculptural forms that are hollow while maintaining great structural strength. The intimacy and directness of this process captured his imagination.

His design aesthetic is derived from sketches based on elliptical and curvilinear shapes with emphasis on a muted angular theme. This theme accents the flow of the designs and is an important element in his signature look. New work evolves from the careful study of his existing designs, providing continuity for the collector of his work.

Recognition began in the form of three consecutive IJA first place awards and a national JA honorable mention. In 1997, Mr. Anderson was among six young designers selected by Jewelers Quarterly as future stars of the industry. In February of 1998, Mr. Anderson was awarded a highly coveted AGTA Spectrum award.
