Traditional Craft in Contemporary Context

"Craft is more than result and more than ever relevant to society."

Heiner Zimmermann

Heiner Zimmermann is an ambassador of his craft. 
Growing up in his father’s forge, he soon learned and appreciated ancient techniques and traditions with hammer and anvil. 

Heiner Zimmermann`s works are always the result of a search for form, structure and surface that touch and moves the spectator. 
His works respect material and forging tradition without neglecting demands of the contemporary context. From an individual creation process comes unique work, the development history symbolizes the union of an idea and will through the material iron.
