Michael Becker or the Beauty of Geometry
Cornelie Ueding and Jürgen Wertheimer
Gold plates, titanium discs, dolomite rocks, severe, ascetic shapes, distinct lines: seldom is a first glance more deceptive than a casual observer seeing Michael Becker’s jewelry. Concealed behind the geometric severity and aesthetic perfection are poetry and passion, indeed a desire for beauty bordering on obsession. You could also say that the visible severity is a consequence of a passionate urge to capture a cosmic disorder, while at the same time trying to tame this chaos, halting every movement while setting everything imaginable in motion. Static and dynamic are hardly opposites in the work of Michael Becker, no more than artificiality and nature.                         read more >>>

Georg Dobler (Berlin)

Born in Creusen, Deutschland  in 1952. Master’s certificate as goldsmith, Pforzheim. Has his studio in Berlin. Professor at the university of applied sciences and arts, Hildesheim

In 1985, after an early deconstructivist phase, Georg Dobler started complementing his jewelry with organic elements in blackened silver. In the late 1990s, he experimented with the opulence of gemstones, creating pieces characterized by an innovative combination of naturalism and artificiality. Around the turn of the millennium, he introduced minimalist compositions featuring polished amethyst or quartz slices set in blackened silver frames. His Beetle Brooches created since 2005 under the title à la Lalique clearly reveal he was inspired by this great Art Nouveau master. Dobler, who counts among the most important contemporary jewelry artists of today, recently started designing abstract, geometrical and technology-inspired pieces again  (Art Aurea)
