The work of Peter Bauhuis on pieces of jewellery and objects is characterised by experimenting with the process of casting and melting metals. By playfully oxidising gold, silver and copper he achieves unexpected colours from matt white and pale greenyyellow to deep orange and dark red. The wax rendering process also opens up a wide range of possibilities for him to keep reinventing seemingly simple forms. Apparent casting mistakes such as fine lines or cracks and the technical requirements of the casting process are integrated into the form of the objects. The result is a lightness which is remarkable for metal and its materiality. The text contributions revolve around the work of Peter Bauhuis in alphabetical order. The publication is not laid out as a reference book, but rather as a playfully subjective handbook and labyrinth. The interaction creates new connections and a patchwork of associations and commentaries.
