Germany, b. 1962
Munich based artist Henriette Schuster studied architecture at Munich Polytechnic, then moved to Silversmithing at Staatl Berufsfachschule for Glass and Jewellery in Neugablonz. In 1991 she studied under Ottio Künzli at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Munich. Exploring notions of balance and interdependence, Schuster works with silver, thread and elastic to create pieces that, in their arresting simplicity, carry quiet power and impact.
