From origin to form
The heart of my work is the path from the local cement copper from Prettau (in South Tyrol, Italy) to the artistically designed copper bowl: from the smelting of the raw material in a specially constructed shaft furnace, to the re-melting and casting of copper ingots, to the forging of sheets and the forging of the bowl form. The traces of this process materialize in a unique type of surface, which is the unmistakable character of my bowls.
