Tone Vigeland (b.1938, Oslo), a Norwegian silversmith, daughter of the artist Per Vigeland and internationally known for both jewelry and metal-based clothing design. Vigeland is a graduate of Norway's National College of Art and Design (1955-57) and the Oslo Yrkesskole(1957). In 1959, she was taken on as an apprentice silversmith at the Plus Applied Arts Center in Fredrikstad, Norway and worked alongside Erling Christoffersen and Anna Greta Eker. There she rose from apprentice, to journeyman, to master smith and by 1962 started her own independent workshop. Her relationship with Plus continued for a number of years after and Plus did continue to produce her designs into the sixties. Since the early 1980s, Vigeland has been creating unique avant-garde art jewelry that has gained her a worldwide reputation and a presence in many museum collections. All of the pieces illustrated here stem from her years at the Plus Workshop.
