Vera Rhodius

Vera Rhodius convincingly facilitates “bridge-building across the ages to new, harmonious relationships”. Her works feature references to bygone epochs through the use of historical glass beads, bakelite or coloured enamel – and her delight in coloured glass developed through many years of experience with enamelling. She mainly combines bold colours with finely structured, matt, fine gold-plated silver elements, with surfaces telling the tales of their development. A totally new avenue consists of modules inspired by op-art. As quadratic silver bodies folded in space and coated with a coloured velvet pile, they develop a surprisingly exciting presence. Her works are to be found in the collection of the Museum of Applied Art, Frankfurt, and in the New Collection in Munich.
