Born in Hildesheim, Germany, in 1951, the goldsmith and sculptor Klaus Börner is a maverick – an artist who does not subscribe to the current and quickly forgotten art trends, but goes his own way, close to nature.
Börner uses mainly slate for his unmistakable objects. He combines the small rectangular slate panels with materials such as bronze, steel, brass and sapphires. They combine with the fine lines carved into the slate to create enchanting landscape impressions. The compositions consist of few pictorial elements such as trees or animals and thus leave a lot of room for imagination.
