I love the guilloché patterns. If you look carefully, you can see that every ornament is created out of countless lines, which are engraved one after the other by hand, together with a guilloché machine, into the metal sheet.

Artist list

Frieda Dörfer
Some years ago, while studying at the Hochschule Pforzheim, Frieda Dörfer became acquainted with the guilloché machine. She was fascinated by the symmetrical and intricate repetitive engraved patterns than can be made with this machine. Ever since then she has been working with this historical technique, adapting it in an innovative manner. Her recent group of jewellery speak to the world-famous Fabergé imperial enamel eggs, which are often also decorated with guilloché.

Opening: Saturday, 26 March, from 4 to 6 pm. in presence of the artist.
