Elementaris by Pfefferkorn
Beate Pfefferkorn doesn’t take porcelain for embellishment, but for a basic and shape-giving element. It is the ranking of countless single porcelain parts which leads to the jewelry piece. Repetition is of fundamental importance. During the work process, similar but never identical single parts are created. Furthermore, the specific characteristics of the material are of great importance. At the beginning of the work process porcelain is a malleable mass and allows highly delicate handling, which is perpetuated by firing it at 1260 °C. The material, which has become very hard now, is not only lovely and beautiful but also very comfortable to wear. During movement the single parts produce soft sounds. Moreover, the colors of the single pieces vary: Vivid tones are placed equally next to virgin white.
