Products

Cast Iron Cookware:

Pans, pots and roasters are developed in my studio and made according to my casting models in cooperation with regional iron foundries. The reworking of castings in my workshop marks the individual character of each item. The surface is burnt black with
linseed oil. As a result, you obtain products which last a lifetime.
Due to its thermal conductivity and storage capacity, cast iron is
the perfect material for the preparation of fried foods.

Fine Silver Tableware:

The silver objects are manufactured by me after idea sketches, paper models and then work samples in base metals. From idea to finished object, a variety of craft techniques is used, which are: forging, annealing, brazing, grinding and polishing. The silver products are made of solid sterling silver. The material thickness of the semi-finished products used by me is 1-1.2 mm.
By this you get a high quality object for everydays use.
