Halle is not a small city, but it is a quiet place. The ancient castle Giebichenstein, in which the art faculty is housed, overlooks the river Saale that is lined with parks and old villas.
Burg Giebichenstein is a place of seclusion away from the pressures to fight ones way to the front lines of the art world and attain immediate success.  Here students are allowed space and the time to order their thoughts and objectives, to develop their ideas and the skills required for attaining these goals. They have the freedom to experiment and to make mistakes, thus making discoveries, to explore and to investigate these newly discovered fields of thought and practice. They are encouraged to enter into a dialogue with their teachers and fellow students and  exchange and debate ideas. They are challenged in art history and theory, thereby gaining a perspective of the past and the contemporary that enables them to assess and position themselves in the present.

It is noteworthy that the Jewellery Class at Burg Giebichenstein is located in the art faculty and is not part of design. This is a clear statement of how jewellery is perceived and taught at Burg Giebichenstein: it is an art form that is intended both as an object of contemplation and to be worn on the body; it transcends the decorative and addresses the question of who we are, it is a relfexion on history and stories and the time we live in; it is an expression of how we perceive and understand our time and environment. Jewellery can be formal and abstract as well as figurative and narrative, ranging from the small and intimate to the bold and representational.

To be seen here, Where it All Begins, is a review of highly individual work made by the people who studied or still study under my direction of the jewellery class over the past twelve years. Some have just commenced on, some are in the middle of their studies, others have recently graduated and some are established as independent artists in the author-jewellery world.

Also to be seen is the work by a group of internationally recognised jewellery artists who have assisted me and contributed, each in his or her individual way, to the promotion and development of the students.
