Materials

Posted on January 30, 2009 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

The main materials I am working with are plastic, enamel and stones.
Any comments and suggestions about the pieces are more than welcome.

Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
private studio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I create flamboyant, sculptural and wearable pieces that combine ambivalent aspects of appeal and repulsion. Jewellery that attracts attention, pieces that catch the eye and demand self-confidence and conviction to wear, thus challenging the boundaries of what constitutes jewellery.

My work unsettles the borderline between beautiful and ugly in order to tease the perception of the beholder and to evoke reactions. I find it exciting and thrilling to create curiosity and challenge viewers to engage and discover, while simultaneously leaving space for individual interpretation. I believe that provoking this playful inquisitiveness is of value to us because it stimulates and originates distinct conditions, which in turn allow experiences that we would not be exposed to otherwise.

The aesthetic qualities of my ambiguous jewellery are based on an organic form-vocabulary and the introduction of innovative materials and techniques, which I combine and contrast with my traditional goldsmithing skills. An open approach and material-based research, spontaneity and the dynamics that come from working intuitively enable me to develop a range of elements, which are then combined to create the compositions of my vibrant work.



Education:

MA (Art and English for Secondary School) at the National Seminar for Didactics and Teacher Training, Freiburg (with Distinction)

We would really like to show together in Munich, but have struggled to find somewhere to exhibit. There are quite a few of us that are selected for Talente as well as Schmuck, so I think we may end up showing in Munich individually this year.
Looking forward to meeting up with you to :)

Congratulations, I love the bold, irreverent forms with a nod to faceted finery.

"I wish there were title, and description with the images. Without a title and information your images will never be found by search engines....they are virtually invisible. It would also help your human viewers decipher the photo. Harriete"
