Jens Torp worked as a goldsmith and jewelry designer before he was introduced to the world of miniatures in 1990. He enjoys researching antique silver and working in miniature to create Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian tea sets, inkstands, and candelabras. He has also incorporated his silver in collaborations with other miniature artists.
Torp is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017. He will be giving a gallery talk about his work in the T/m collection and the inspiration behind it on September 17 at 12:30pm.
