About my work
My work is determinded by simple designs which fulfils the aesthetic and functional components. My designs connect a wide range of material, craftmenship and digital techniques, for the special potential I see in that interaction. I’m always looking for a result that allows me to „play“ with it and gives me the possibility to exchange individual parts.
With this in mind, my young label, is focused on giving space to diversity or multifunctionalty and makes use of material and technical possibilities to enable a creative handling of the object.
My path to artistic expression was deepened during my studies at the designer university in Pforzheim. In my Bachelor’s course jewellery and objects of everyday culture, jewellerys and interial objects were my main topics. In 2017 I finally realized in my bachelor thesis that I was not looking for a way that lead only to jewellery or only to obects. I wanted to combine jewellery and object in my designs.
Since 2017 my jewellery collections are offered under my label Goldmarlen and I work on creative projects in theatres or with start- up companies.
