Six Danish Silversmiths
Six Danish Silversmiths came into being in 2005 on the initiative of Else Nicolai Hansen to display modern Danish silverware at Collect, the art fair for contemporary objects in London. The group comprised six skilled Danish silversmiths, who exhibited their silver holloware at Collect 2006 and Collect 2007, both held at the V&A.

Since then, Galleri Montan has presented Else Nicolai Hansen and other members of this group at Collect 2008 at V&A and at Collect 2009 at Saatchi Gallery in London.
