Silver !


To us, silver is nothing more than a means of creating shapes.
To us, silver is the ultimate way of creating shapes.
In a world dominated by short lifecycles and recycling, we deliver creations that last.
Experiencing silver.

These, and other, one-liners are almost a daily occurrence when we communicate with our clients and friends about our creations. At an art fair a few months back, someone came up to our stand and said that our work is like contemporary Zen to him.

Our quest started from a feeling that we wanted to be surrounded by objects that guide us and inject enjoyment into our lives.
To some, this may sound odd in times of crisis, but in the end, the way we evaluate our life will be counted by the things that make it worthwhile. People and things that have a place in our heart.

And we happen to be those artists who translate our love for silver, and particularly fine silver, into creations that reflect our passion and personality and that invite to follow you on the path of life.

Pure is one of the words we are guided by. Purity in material and our way of expression. We do not look for the perfect mirror that only shows us the area around the object. We are looking for shapes that invite to be touched. Simple basic shapes in the correct proportions. The assessment of this is often a very personal matter. What shape feels right? Shapes that are both very small or indeed, very large.
Shapes that are awe-inspiring.

From a technical point of view, we always look for ways of creating our works from one single sheet of silver. We avoid joints unless
absolutely necessary.
It may seem that this approach could limit the freedom of creating shapes, but in reality, it is a challenge to enter into communication with the material and explore the boundaries of what is possible.
And when we reach those limits, we show them, out of respect for that material.

Silver, you get never to stop talking about......
