@ Galerie Ra, Amsterdam, 28.2. - 11.4.2015
Sigurd Bronger constructed for this exhibition at Galerie Ra different carrying devices that relate to the issue 'in between'. He has chosen to use some of the materials used in his earlier collections, such as egg, stones, cactus spike, diamond, shell… and some new materials. Many of the carrying devices have a construction that holds the material 'in between'. Some of the new pieces can be placed 'in between' functional jewellery, art and objects.
More carrying devices are to be found in Bronger's Laboratorium Mechanum!

Kohyama has played a very unique and significant role in reviving the use of the traditional Japanese 'Anagama' wood firing kiln, as he was the first potter in Shigaraki to build such a kiln since the Middle Ages.
