August Happ Silversmith
Silver Jewelry, Imitation (Fashion) Jewelry
I work mainly with appliances, so-called corpus. To help with the hammer form a thick and unwieldy piece of silver into a jug or vase is a work of patience. Overcoming the resistance of the material and get it to assume the shape that I want, is an equally interesting challenge every time. I appreciate the inherent feeling of peace and purity of the silver and this is something I strive to maintain and strengthen in the finished object. I want to create objects with clean and clear lines where the material and the surface feels timeless, self-evident. Different types of decoration give each item a unique character.
