Anette Kortenhaus


Anette Kortenhaus, a German designer living in Australia, is a skilled metalsmith — but that fact is almost forgotten once you discover her colourful side. Her felt "dwarf's hat" rings (pictured above, top left) and paper maché "blossom" rings (top center) are the complete opposite of the cool tones and sharp lines in her silver and gold work (like this marquise ring). Not that there's anything wrong with that, especially with results like these. [While trying to think of another way to say "opposite," I realized that "mirror image" means "the same" when it really makes more sense for it to mean "the opposite." Why is that?]
