Klaus BörnerThe 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.

Video of the creation process of Klaus Borner:

An art work that is cut in from a stone or wooden surface, not modeled in the round.

According to the degree of projection one can distinguish between low-relief or bas-relief and high relief. The sunk relief is a common form of reliefs in Ancient Egypt, where the depicted scenes were cut into the stone or wood surface.

Among the most famous reliefs are the works of the Florentine master Lorenzo Ghiberti. He created, among others, the bronze doors of the Florence Baptistery, called by Michelangelo the "Gates of Paradise".

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
