Hiawatha Seiffert

The basic material for Hiawatha Seiffert’s bowl objects are the chains of bicycles, motorcycles or machines. They are combined in an exciting manner by means of forging and welding, which also contributes to their spatial dynamics. The rough surface structure is due to the industrial technology and elementary forging techniques involved. It always changes in appearance according to the mood of the light and the atmosphere in the room. “Playing with the material’s properties and taking them to the limits is the most important aspect when I create these pieces,” Seiffert comments. He experimented with damascus steel for a long time before he started giving bicycle and motorcycle chains a second lease of life by transforming them into vessels. In addition to winning several awards, his creations have been included in the collections of Hamburg’s Museum of Arts and Crafts as well as in “Die Neue Sammlung” international design museum.
