Lena Hießböck

Lena Hießböck took an apprenticeship at a long established goldsmithy in Innsbruck and studied art history at the University of Vienna. Her work is marked by traditional methods but simultaneousely by the desire to break with them. She plays with traditionally used materials and techniques - stitching silver with colourful bead cord, twisting different metals close to their hardness grade, building delicate mounts for missing jewels... To create pieces in subtle and smooth shapes that are barely to feel.
