Ketten und Blumen – Chains and Flowers
Chains and flowers. Chains that are cast in one piece. Is that possible?
The small sculptures are objects and jewellery at the same time. They are cast from silver, gold and bronze in the technique of lost shape. On closer inspection, the trees in various colurs turn out to be large-looped chains cast in one piece. You have to cut them from the object tree, to put the resulting jewellery around your neck.
The object has the potential to the chain, the portable chain carries the memory of its origin. The chains have a great graphical conciseness, are at the same time geometric and floral.
