Haldis Scheicher was born in Carinthia/Austria in 1969. After studying sculpture in Graz she moved to Vienna where she apprenticed as a goldsmith before becoming a self-employed jewellery designer and maker. From 1991 to 2000, she collaborated part of each year with several jewellery artists in Milan. Since 2010, she has also been teaching sculptural design and metalwork at Kunst Mode Design-Herbststrasse, Vienna.
Haldis Scheicher has participated in numerous exhibitions in Austria and abroad since 1991.
StatementThe beauty of everyday objects.....
That's what has fascinated me since the beginning of my artistic work.
Over the years, I have created a variety of jewellery series based on different types of water hoses, cut-outs from 1970s and 1980s comics, details of headphones and even lingerie accessories...but also using natural materials, such as stones of different fruit, or pebbles I found in my path.
Most recently, I was delighted to find some old Nordic skis and ski poles in my husband’s parents’ house (which also started me thinking about the value of skiing nowadays). Several other objects that have accompanied me in my homes and work places over the years have become part of the "après ski" collection.
