Viktoria Muenzker| “The perfection of nature’s forms and the beauty of the material challenge me to create jewellery pieces of resemblant quality. Sometimes my workbench looks like a natural history collection: Driftwood of a wayward-knotted shape, pieces of coral, lichen, dried scale of a carp, petrified sea shell, amber and a sea urchin skeleton gather there. Divergent material properties meet another in unusual combinations: soft and amorphous runs into hard and edged, translucent stones into matt light absorbing bodies. The gracile and grotesque-looking deep-sea organisms could also be figments. Animalic, botanic and mineral seems to melt fluently into each other, nature and phantasy becomes one. My jewellery objects are materialized imaginations. It’s not how the things really are. How they could be – that is the point of aesthetical capability.”(*)
