was born in Stuttgart in 1966 and has been working with wood since 1996. In 2002 he opened his studio in Langenburg. Friedemann crafts sculptural vessels, bowls, and translucent lampshades.
His turning technique is complex and time-consuming, resulting in stunning one-of-a-kind pieces as well as small series objects.
He selects his wood very carefully, preferring wood from the forests of Hohenlohe, a small region in the northern part of Baden-Württemberg. His pieces are usually made of oak, maple, ash, walnut, wild service tree, hornbeam and birch.
All of Friedemann's work has a simple, but perfect flowing line and the surfaces are either smooth and finely sanded or rough and brushed. To achieve a wide range of surfaces, he uses various techniques such as texturising, brushing, bleaching, staining, varnishing and oiling.
Friedemann's combination of craftsmanship and artistry bring out the unique beauty of the wood and result in pieces of timeless elegance, not only pleasing to the eye, but also to the touch.
