schmucksymposium haxthäuser hof 2023
this year`s theme: eloquent hands
I use many different materials, both rich and poor. The forms vary from organic to geometric, the organic however seems to prevail. Texture, pattern and colour play a big role, as does sensuality both in the shapes as well as in the use of material.
For ideas I draw on natural forms and artefacts of all kinds, both historical as well as contemporary.
The crafting of each piece is part of the creative thinking process.
The jewellery I make is to adorn a person, to be a celebration. Its place is the body and its intention is to enhance the wearer as well as to be an object of contemplation to be taken in the hand and looked at from all sides.
