Jürgen Krass

"The passion for metal was already evident during my training in a metalworking profession with subsequent studies. Since 2009, I have been working in my studio in "Haus Kunst 13" in Sainbach. I am particularly fascinated by simple geometric shapes such as rectangles and triangles."

“Die Leidenschaft für den Werkstoff Metall zeigte sich schon bei der Ausbildung in einem metallbearbeitenden Beruf mit anschließendem Studium. Seit 2009 arbeite ich in meinem Atelier im „Haus Kunst 13“ in Sainbach. Ganz besonders faszinieren mich einfache geometrische Formen wie Rechtecke, Dreieck.”
