Hilda Hellström loves to work with her hands. From her studio just outside Copenhagen’s city centre, the 33-year-old Swedish-born sculptor and designer creates objects using both synthetic and natural materials, often challenging our perception of reality. “My work is about the relationship between man and nature, or the man-made, artificial or the natural,” Hellström says. “There’s no nature that hasn’t been untouched by us on a fundamental level.” Her elegant and thought-provoking pieces have been featured in museums, exhibitions, hotels and hospitals around the world, including Sweden, London, New York, Shanghai, South Korea and Denmark.
