„All of my artwork is a translation of experiences and observations I had in the natural landscape and its elements.”
Born in Namibia, Wolfgang Vaatz is working as a jewellery artist since late 2012. In 2017, his Aspen inspired cuff was selected as finalist in the Saul Bell Award Competition. The natural gold he uses is unrefined placer gold. Placer gold is gold which is eroded from its host rock and moved by water to different deposit locations.
