Kamila was born in Poland in 1978. She studied History of Art at Jagiellonen University and worked then as a curator and project manager . There followed an apprenticeship as goldsmith in Berlin, which she finished in 2009. Kamila has been with Spreeglanz since then until July 2011. In her first collection at Spreeglanz, Kamila is concerned with the perception of the moment. Its transitoriness, the yearning to hold it and the certainty that man can eternalize moments in his memory are motifs in her work. A piece of jewellery like the ring „my secret book“ materializes thoughts or emotions, which I can decide every day to carry with me or not. Kamilas necklace „Capsular“ initially plays with the motif of transitoriness, but the after the gelatine capsules have dissolved, a delicate silver chain surprisingly appears. „I would like to induce people to perceive the different processes that are taking place around us.“
Lina, born in Sweden in 1979, took classes in History of Art and Painting before moving to England, where she studied Jewellery and Accessory Design at Kent Institute of Art and Design. Later on, she took a degree in Product Design with emphasis on Glass Design at Kalmar University. Lina exhibited several of her objects at the Milan and Stockholm Furniture Fair. The pieces of jewellery she has designed at Spreeglanz since March 2009 revolve around objects and materials of everyday life, so called objets trouvés. Tea bags and keys from the flea market, galvanoplastically fixed in silver and gold plated silver, do not betray their origin and cause a romantic, playful impression, preparing the way for Linas creations of deconstructed bicycle chains. Through the combination of pearls with avantgarde steel elements, the necklaces, bracelets and rings obtain a contemporary flair.
Christopher was born in Sweden in 1983. He attended Kävesta Art School and Örebro Art College and studied Industrial Design at Mid Sweden University. During his studies, he focused on silver and wood manufacture, Japanese sculpture, Philosophy and Photography. In March 2009 he joined Spreeglanz where he had applied with these words:“I will work my ass off!“ In his first months, Christopher experimented with Origami. Silver Koi carps and bats would eventually develop from the figures in the folded paper. After that, he dedicated himself to Phototech. This is how the filigree fans and pendants in black lacquered brass originated, decorated with burlesque motifs and linked with pearls. Christopher was the member of Spreeglanz until March 2010.
Marta, born in Poland in 1980, was a part of the Spreeglanz residential community between March and September 2009. Previously, she had spent several years studying Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. During her stay at Spreeglanz, Marta designed a set of pieces which oscillate between jewellery and apparel. Collars and cuffs made of leather, to be worn as neck or arm decoration , stand in the tradition of deconstructivism.
