In love with Mother Nature

  • • Hanuš casts real organic objects from nature
  • • He was a sculptor first, jewellery maker second
  • • As a boy, he used to make jewellery for his mother

The works of Hanuš Lamr seem like verses of a neverending ode to nature. The painstakingly crafted details within his jewellery and sculptures convey his profound devotion to his beloved – Mother Nature. "Nature is my religion," says Hanuš. "I incarnate its vital processes. My objects are sort of relics of genuine, animate nature." A mere glance is enough to see that his works are based on fragments of the natural world. Further inspection reveals their organic texture, while touching them feels like holding precious, fragile fossils. One can sense the uniqueness of Hanuš's work, which results in pieces that are strong reminders of the power of nature.
