Overview

Her material is silver, not gold, with a vernacular created from the classical canon of fundamental forms. The Archaic aspect of Therese Hilbert’s work conveys peace and power—not to be mistaken for coolness and distance. The fast pace of living today grinds to a halt when observing her works, when sensing the cautious, tentative way of communicating that allows us to discover an emotional depth, the joyful, the radiant, but also the vulnerable side of the artist … and ultimately of ourselves. These are the jewelry objects by Therese Hilbert, the Swiss-born former student of Max Fröhlich in Zurich and Hermann Jünger in Munich.
One needs to take the time to sense all the tenderness, as well as the irrepressible force, held within her jewelry. The volcano theme has therefore also played a decisive role in her work since the 1990s.
