Please write me a message at email@example.com . Then we make an appointment to visit the studio. Or you can visit me at one of my exhibitions or art fairs. There you can view the objects "live" and from all sides. HERE you will find the dates of the next exhibitions and events. On request HERE I will also be happy to send you a link, and you can look at the e.g. currently available objects online on my website
Prices for smaller objects and sculptures range from about €290 to €390. More complex artworks and
those under a glass lintel start at €490. On request and by arrangement, I am also happy to design sceneries that go beyond the price range mentioned. HERE you can view some of my objects and sculptures.
That varies greatly. There are woods that have been in my collection for two or three years. They are beautiful, and I pick them up again and again.
But so far I haven't come up with a brilliant idea. Other woods speak a clear language, and I know immediately how the scenery should look. Then it can go quickly and an object can be finished
within a few days or weeks.
There are objects for standing and for the wall. Small sceneries are mostly variable. They can be both put up and hung. A sawtooth suspension on the back of the artwork makes it very easy to attach: hammer a nail into the wall at the desired height and you can admire your artwork there.
Larger objects I design from the beginning either for the wall or for standing up. Objects for standing always include an approx. 3 cm high, lacquered beech wood base.
Upon request, you can also purchase a photographic print of your favorite scenery. Not all objects
are available in high resolution to expose them on photo paper. Some motifs are available as postcards, which you can order HERE.
Yes, we can gladly make an appointment for a studio visit. The best way is to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
The first days after a storm surge are very productive.
The search is somewhat uncomfortable - the wind tries to sweep you off your feet, your nose runs and your fingers are clammy. You often meet other treasure hunters. But it is an ideal time, because almost everywhere you can find very interesting, well-traveled flotsam.
In summer, driftwood hunting is a bit more difficult. You should look where the wood has a chance to get caught, for example, in small bays, on headlands that jut into the water, or in vegetation near the shore. Steep banks are also very good hunting grounds. Alluvial debris can get stuck excellently between tree roots and boulders.
This is also true for the port of Hamburg. There are many nooks and crannies there where driftwood collects, so you can find plenty of prey at any time of year.
I have found driftwood, for example, on Amrum and Sylt, in St.Peter-Ording, on Hiddensee, on the Brodtener Steilufer and the Hetlinger Schanze, on Funen, Bornholm and Spitsbergen (but you shouldn't get caught there! :-) and last but not least on the gigantic shifting sand dune near Arcachon.
The one usually fertilizes the other. I am very often inspired by the North German landscape and by vacation trips to Scandinavia. But films and photos also give me new ideas.
Recently I saw a film that showed impressive fresh water tanks in the USA. I would definitely like to take up these structures made of steel or even
wood in one of the next works. But the starting point of my work is primarily driftwood. Through its form it gives me a lot to do. I look at the lines, the weathering, the shading, the colors,
and the wood begins to tell stories. Then I look for suitable material in my collection of metals and put various individual parts together again and again on a trial basis until a coherent whole
emerges. It's like a puzzle game: suddenly the last individual piece "falls" into place and the object feels "round." Then the final phase of assembly begins: sawing, hammering, screwing, gluing
I like to rummage around in sheds and workshops of relatives, friends or acquaintances and find all kinds of bent, rusted, demolished. For others worthless - for me they are treasures! If you have an untidy basement for handicrafts ... let me know ;-D
