Thor Selzer was born Thor Selzer Madsen(19251989). Thor Selzer opened his own studio and workshop in 1957. Was a Danish modernist abstract designer who created numerous pieces of wearable art for the Danish firm Georg Jensen as well as many unique pieces under his own name. His pieces included pendants, cuff links, earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, abstract pins and tie clips.
These were mostly rendered in silver and gold, sometimes combined with gemstones and shaped in modernist abstract constructive styles. Some of his more representational creations featured stylized flowers on stems where the flower petals were predominantly decorated with monochromatic enamels.
Some of Thor Selzers pieces were intended to be regarded as sculptural fine art and examples of these are displayed in the collections of museums including the Danish Museum of Decorative Art in Copenhagen, Denmark.
