Rolled up silver discs and wire are the simple constructional ingredients of the threedimensional, geometric elements to which Fritz Riesack gives the effect of a delicate breeziness by lining them up to a necklace. At the same time they display an almost architectonic quality.
The last picture shows the sample card from the archive of Fritz Riesack with a contemporary photograph of the necklace on offer. The seven balls at centre might be a later addition to the necklace or added by Riesack according to the customer’s request. They are not soldered to the chain and thus can be removed.
Fritz Riesack (1904 – 1970) set up his workshop 1927 in Essen, Germany. His early works show the influence of the Bauhaus.
The necklace will be accompanied by a copy of the above mentioned sample card.
