Jug - Åsa Maria Hermansson - Metal smith

With this jug, a turning and soldering exercise during my last months of school at EAOSD School of Arts and Crafts, I wanted to create something that pleases my own eye and also challenge the design ideals of my teachers and create something that expressed my Swedishness among Colombian silversmiths. I chose to use the not very noble brass and scrap wood as materials and gave them a simple finish that will grow old with style. My hope is that this highlights the simplicity of the design, for which I found inspiration among the Bauhaus masters. I truly hope that it pleases your eyes too.

Bird – reinventing ancestral techniques

The second attempt to make pieces rarely made in the technique obra plana, the creation of a piece of art from a metal sheet using only hammer and anvil, resulted in this bird and my teacher shaking his head saying something like “I don’t know what to think of you, I’m half satisfied and half… just stupefied”. I’m still not sure if he meant it as a good thing. Anyways, it was possible to make a bird, and I hope that you like it.
