Since 1996, Antje Dienstbir has dedicated herself to the multi-layered theme of spoons beyond the limits of their applicability, mostly forged, chased or chiselled from silver. Last year, she discovered the fascination of the colour variety of copper and designed large-scale double laffs, thus extending the spoon form into a vessel dimension. Guided by her handiwork and the process of shaping, she creates cups in her current cycle of works that show the development from a circular disc to a body. The supple malleability of the metal sheet is explicitly translated into the creative characteristics of the basic form.
