Karen Ihle and Jens Eliasen on the broche

In what seems to be a few seconds, a fusion between shape and artist unfolds and becomes the starting point for a new work.

Which thoughts/considerations underlie this piece?

The precise shape of the work is often invented on the drawing board, but the beautiful, complete shape emerges through a process of exploration. When the creative gaze captures a shape that happens to reveal itself through coincidences, a fruitful transposition takes place between the shape and the artist discovering it. In what seems to be a few seconds, a fusion between shape and artist unfolds and becomes the starting point for a new work. Thus, the merging between the discovered shape, which in this case is a piece of wire, and our artistic gaze has been the starting point of this broche.

How can one perceive this piece in relation to your other work?

We have always been interested in pure shape and so we are looking for a very simple expression. For that reason, we try to implement light and shadow as defining elements in all our works.

What kind of materials and/or techniques have you been using?

We have been using silver 925S, as well as familiar goldsmith techniques such as sawing, sharpening and soldering.
