Michael Berger

Germany / Jewelry

Kinetics is the driving force that makes Michael's unusually shaped rings so fascinating. At first glance his stainless steel or gold ring sculptures seem to be attractively heavy and clearly shaped pieces. When you put them on and start moving your hands horizontally in flowing movements their full magic is revealed: the top elements, which nestle closely together start to move and rotate. Derived from his jewelry, he also creates larger kinetic objects and table pieces, all conversation pieces with completely hidden mechanism.
