About the Artwork

Fire, earth and metal: these elementary forces played a very important role in the oeuvre of Otto Piene. After many years of artistic productions in 2006 he discovered a new material for his art works: ceramic.

“With my artworks I want to transmit energy”

Otto Piene

He created wonderful mural reliefs in ceramic. He dropped viscous varnish through different raster-barriers on a prepared clay platter. Not only the setting of the golden drops creates the individual and unique look of each work but also theirs convex and interleaving forms. The slight convexity of the golden varnish drops reflects the light and gives the artwork a discreet shine. With the mélange of archaic and modern elements Piene achieves an impressing art work with this powerful material.
