Peter Bauhuis

Germany, b. 1965

The distinctive form of Peter Bauhuis’ jewellery and vessels are born from an innovative use of metal casting techniques. Creating pieces from copper, silver and gold, Peter’s work has a colour and surface texture unique to this casting process. Since studying at Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau, School for Jewellery Design in the 1980s, he has exhibited widely and delivered workshops and lectures internationally. He completed his Diplom at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts in 1999 and opened his own studio the same year. In 2013 he won the 17th Silver Triennial in Hanau and became artist in residence at Artkommunalka Kolomna, Russia.

His work is held in numerous public collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Die Neue Sammlung, Munich and Fonds national d’art contemporain, Paris.
