About

silver for the wall

SILVER

I love to work with this soft and white metal !
Did you know that silver possesses the highest electrical conductivity of any element, the highest thermal conductivity of any metal and is the most reflective metal on the planet ?

It´s softness inspired me once to use it in a sort sculptural way. Using fire and pressure it allows to deform, and modify the surface.

WANDSILBER : The "Making of":

In the Beginning my silver object is 3 dimensional .
Forged "wire drawings" are soldered on a silver sheet, and then shaped .
Several annealing procedure in between !
The silver expends, random fissures and flaws appear, directed by rolling and hammering in different directions and with varying intensity -

Forging brings up different colors on the surface and this piece of art is in the end raw and original, nonetheless consisting of nothing more ... than pure

SILVER !

Enjoy my artwork!
