Thomas Feichtner


Ostensibly plain and reduced to function, the witty design approach of BOLS D’OR first becomes manifest in the detail. So, just as the water surface divides a glass into two halves, parcel gilding effects this in the three receptacles designed by Thomas Feichtner for the silversmith concern of Jarosinski & Vaugoin. A visual irritation that throws the otherwise perfectly uniform bodies of the silver bowls and beakers somewhat out of sync – oblique and asymmetrical, as if dipped in paint. A special feature, only possible through traditional handicraft such as that practiced at silversmiths Jarosinski & Vaugoin.
