The goldsmith and sculptor Klaus Borner, born in Hildesheim in 1951 is a solitaire, a maverick and a loner - an artist who does not follow the current and quickly forgotten art trends, but goes his own way, inspired by the love to nature.
The characteristic features of Borner’s style is the usage of slate. He combined small rectangular slates with different materials such as bronze, steel, brass and sapphires. They combine in the fine, carved lines, creating enchanting landscape impressions. The compositions consist of a few image elements such as trees or animals so they can leave plenty of room for your imagination.
