Brooch by Harry Tensing from the exhibition “Another life”.
Is there another life and what is it about? Is it about changes in life, hoping for life after death, giving things a new life?
Water and plants are inseparable from each other. Without water, a tree will become wood. At the current exhibition I have presented maple, apple and pear tree wood from my home garden – all the trees that have been cut down during my lifetime and the taste of their fruit are still in my mind. While modelling the wood I have attempted to reanimate them in the form of jewellery. Water that gave life to wood has been given “another life” in silver.” – Harry Tensing
