Klaus Börner: Wall object ‘Raven Conversations’

‘An old already dead tree in front of the setting sun. In the background, marked only with a fine line, a range of hills. Closely seated, two ravens as if deepened in their talk. We can only guess about the content, maybe it's all about who has won the sheep jumping today._x000D_

In my wanderings I encounter raven crows and other corvidae almost every day. I can constantly observe for something new. As they let walnuts fall all the way from the height, or as they roll over the vessels to possibly get to the tasty contents. Or as they scare away the birds of prey with their acrobatic flight maneuvers, the robbers in their area. Or s they hop around the sheep that are grazing in our fields in autumn. It looks as if there is a contest to see who is the naughtiest and the most brazen. All these observations inspired me to create the object ‘Raven conversations’’, said Klaus Börner._x000D_

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".
