The artist sits in his studio. Always facing the same question, constantly looking for a different answer. Daniel Kruger is someone who in his answers always manages to strike a fine balance between 'head' and 'hand'; between unconventional, exciting ideas and his wide ranging craft skills. At times a sweet African wind blows in his work, incidentally you catch a glint from eighteenth century court life, or nineteenth century opulence. Kruger will see constraints and conventions only as a challenge. He is just as happy forging silver, crocheting fiber, as embroidering fabrics, for him there is no distinction between using precious stones, mirrors or paint. He likes to be seduced by photographs, dried flowers or the magic of blue butterfly wings. The main interests of the artist are enjoying the making process and the delight a future wearer may get from his pieces. Daniel Kruger creates genuine jewellery, while making an appreciative bow to the past and an audacious leap into the future.
