Artist, sculptor, designer with a degree from the Academie Beeldende Kunsten in Maastricht, the Netherlands, Kaspar Hamacher (Eupen,°1981) takes nature as the starting point in his day-to-day life as a sculptor and a designer of artistic furniture.
Raised amongst the trees by his forest ranger father, in the Eastern Cantons of Belgium, he has forged his path through the world of art and design, winding along between sculpture and the contemporary applied arts. Far from the rush of our digital world, Kaspar Hamacher creates a close and unique connection with each fragment of trunk he sculpts, crafting unique stamped pieces, from his own creative mastery.
Somewhere between art and design, he deliberately focuses on the object in all its physical strength, as a “maker” rather than a conceptual designer. His abilities with wood as a living material are the fruit of his energy and his imagination: whether working with a tree trunk or branch, or a piece of leather, for him it is essential to respect the authenticity at every step of the creative process.
In his art and design approach, which he calls “Die Werkstatt” (The Workshop) since his exhibition at Spazio Nobile in 2017, Hamacher always aims to produce a piece that is both unique and personal, with a strong meaning and added soul.
