Artist list

Ulo Florak, Ralf Burkhard
Ulo Florack is an artist of many talents and almost impossible to classify. The question of whether he is a painter or a jeweller remains unanswered, both media nurture each other. His jewellery is sculptural and the application of colour painterly. Florack’s style is unmistakable and his jewellery full of ideological and intellectual metaphors, hovering between reality and fantasy.

Ralf Burkhard exploits the physical properties of plastic and turns the process of heat moulding into an artistic form. In this challenge lies an element of chance, this in turn reflects his outlook on life from which he draws his inspiration and drive to design. Burkhard’s jewellery is characterised by its simplicity, forms and no frills.
