As the 20th century progressed, education was made available to all and people became more mobile, artists developed their own styles, free of the need to associate their work with ‘movements’. They were able, for practical purposes, to work under the term ‘contemporary’. They were able to pick and choose their styles, gather inspiration from everywhere and create work that was completely unique. Friedensreich Hundertwasser was one such artist; by the end of the century, he was one of Austria’s most famous contemporary artists. The manifestation of Hundertwasser’s ideas and ideals in his paintings and buildings impressed and inspired the FREYWILLE artists to create a special collection, one honouring his characteristic artistic elements.
The exclusive pieces of jewellery now present themselves in FREYWILLE's Fine Jewellery as a perfect unity between the joy of the artistic design and the desire for something special.
The fire-enamel motive used in this design was inspired by the painting “Irinaland über dem Balkan” and the overall philosophy of the universal genius Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Based on careful research the FREYWILLE artists have created a multifaceted design interpretation full of intense symbols and colours.
