Annemarie Reinhold creates sculptural and wearable metal objects. Her forms are inspired by nature – in particular trees, leaves, plants and their life cycles.
Her process initially involves construction using traditional silversmithing techniques. Starting from a flat sheet of metal and creating 3D forms, she aims to make the metal look soft, light and delicate.
Using metal, which has durable qualities, allows me to capture the constant flux in nature, and to treasure these moments. This aspect of slowing down is echoed in the process of making. I absolutely love making and being engaged in processes. It takes time but is absolutely worth it. Possibly in a very fast paced
world in constant change I wish to hold on to and capture the process of making.
Annemarie completed a two year course in Art, Craft and Design at Grennan Mill Craft School, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny in 2004. She received a Bachelor of Metal & Jewellery Design from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2016 and subsequently completed a postgraduate residential course for Silversmithing, Jewellery and Professional Skills at Bishopsland Educational Trust in Reading, UK in 2017. She is currently undertaking the Jewellery and Goldsmithing Skills & Design Course at the Design & Craft Crafts Council of Ireland in Kilkenny.
