material_play - FASCINATING METAL CREATIONS / by Annabelle Guldner

material_play - suprising metal
Manuela Geugelin who lives and works in my hometown Freiburg, Germany, is the recipient of the 3rd place material award RAUMPROBE in the category design. What is it? She works metal in the most unexpected ways... Through propellant  and wrought technology thin metal sheets are formed and worked into unique surfaces, reminiscent of cliffs, tree bark, fissures or veins. It implicates movements and iridescence through the metallic shimmering surfaces. Manuela uses the technique of scorching to create a unique patina and at the same time protecting the metal from corrosion. The resulting hand-made and one-of reliefs come to life in the interior design of walls, sculptural applications, furniture and built-ins. Because every metal panel will be different they make a strong statement within any space. The play of light across the entire surface caused by the wrinkles, cavities and bulges renders them ever-changing and special. Next to brass, the artist also uses copper and silver metal sheets to create these fascinating 3-dimensional objects.
