General Session: Polymer Clay Wunderkammer

Wun·der·kam·mer ˈvo͝ondərˌkämər/ noun
noun: Wunderkammer; plural noun: Wunderkammern
a place where a collection of curiosities and rarities is exhibited.
I feel polymer is the perfect material for translating the methods of the great silversmiths and goldsmiths from the past.

I grew up surrounded by both religion and architecture in Germany. Using polymer, salvaged materials and wood I began building ancient-looking constructions that pay homage to the holy gadgets of our digital age.

Bio

Born and living in Northern Bavaria, I am working as a professional photographer. My first contact with polymer clay I had in the 1980s when I started to make product shots for FIMO. But it took me until 2011 to realize the possibilities of this material for my combinations of modern high-tech devices with a housing in the style of past epochs. Like a medieval craftsman, I started to build appropriate housings for the adored by all high tech relics of our time. And with polymer clay I found the perfect material for translating the methods of the great silversmiths and goldsmiths from the past.
