About the Artist:
Hans Weissflog studied mechanical engineering and design. He started working in his Hildesheim studio in 1982, and in 1994, received the highest honor for a German craft artist, The Lower Saxony State Award. The jury which selected Weissflog made the following comment about the power of his work: "With his work, the creating of vessels, boxes and free objects, he belongs to the undisputed magicians of the art of wringing every form from a piece of wood, above all physical and technical boundaries."
Says Weissflog, "I have always tried to develop my style without changing it too much. It takes me a lot of time to finish my pieces. Time is a very important factor: if I start to hurry and become nervous, the piece will break. I hope to produce more satisfying pieces in my life."
