Maike Barteldres

maike barteldres has been exploring the relationship between stone and metal for many years.

by pushing the boundaries of the ancient technique of sand casting maike has developed her own process in which she is casting the metal directly into and through the stone

the first artistic act is to walk along the beach and picking the right pebble.

when working with a pebble, maike has respect for the enormous space of time it has taken for the rock to form and then to be shaped by the elements.

in her work she combines a natural shape with pure geometry, a material straight from the ground with a refined precious metal.
