Susanne Boerner: Garden Plug "I Want to Laugh"

Susanne Boerner, born in Gottingen, has been working successfully as a ceramics and metal designer for many years. She is dedicated to handwork. In this way appear her weather proof sculptures, which often consist of unsusual mixes of materials, such as ceramics, wood and metal. Her works, produced in limited amounts, are shaped and painted by hand. These objects, colorful and eccentric, are filled with fantasy and humor.

"I Want To Laugh": a dark-haired head peeps from a bush (see another picture) and greets the upcoming guests. The head is modelled and painted by hand. Branded glazing protects it from climatic influences. The head and metal hands are attached to a foundation slab which can be stuck in the ground. Each sculpture is unique. Format approx. 70 x 52 x 11 cm (W/H/D). Weight approx. 6.4 kg.

Porträt der Künstlerin Susanne BoernerSusanne Boerner, in Göttingen geboren, arbeitet seit vielen Jahren erfolgreich als Designerin für Keramik, Holz und Metall. Sie schwört auf Handarbeit, und so entstehen ihre wetterfesten Skulpturen - oft in ungewöhnlichen Material-Mixes von Keramik, Holz und Metall - in kleinen Stückzahlen und werden von Hand geformt und bemalt. Boerners unverwechselbare Objekte sind gerne bunt, gerne ein wenig verschroben - auf jeden Fall aber voller Fantasie und Humor.

Ihre Werke verbreiten übrigens seit März 2017 auch in Brüssel Fröhlichkeit: Anlässlich des 60. Jahrestages der Römischen Verträge wurde vor dem Gebäude der Europäischen Kommission ihr großes Figurenensemble "European Citizens“ (“Europäische Bürger") als Dauerausstellung aufgestellt - 13 lebensgroße Figuren aus Metall und Ton zieren den Platz Jean Monnet, benannt nach einem der Gründerväter der europäischen Einigung.

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.
