The alveolar structure of ceramic heat exchangers has a special appeal for Silke Trekel. By skillfully cutting them so as to reveal multi-faceted aspects of their interior structure, she deprives these indus-trially produced objects of their austerity and transforms their distinctive rasters into an ornamental features. The resulting pieces of jewelry are surprisingly lightweight, and the material is pleasant to the touch thanks to a transparent glaze.
