Taking cues from historical artifacts and Euclidean geometry, jewelry and ceramic designer Daniel Kruger says that many of his pieces, “have a distinct erotic quality.” His creations are often symmetrical and in pairs: he balances mathematical patterns—grids, tessellating shapes—with softer, more organic lines. It’s Kruger’s choice of materials like silver, turquoise, and coral that give his works their aura of ancient treasure. Kruger is not loyal to particular time periods or regions though; influences include everything from Apache beading to Byzantine enamelwork. He usually uses many different materials, both rich and poor.

 

The forms vary from organic to geometric—the organic however seems to prevail. Texture, pattern, and color play a big role, as does sensuality both in the shapes as well as in the use of material. He likes symmetry; often pieces are made up of pairs. For ideas he draws on natural forms and artifacts of all kind, both historical as well as contemporary. This he believes is evident in his work. The crafting of each piece is part of the creative thinking process and that's why each piece is always unique.
