siegfried de buck

Jewel designer,
silver smith, multi-media designer.

As one of the pioneers of contemporary silversmithing, Siegfried De Buck plays an important role in the development of the silversmith’s trade in Belgium. His creations range from jewelry to tools for daily use such as walking sticks, teapots or table tools.

A strong personal artistic vision and excellence of workmanship are characteristic of his work. Technique and elegance are put on the forefront. His creations show both a very personal way of expression and a thorough knowledge of material and technique. The result is an oeuvre which shows strong personality and artistic talent.
Siegfried De Buck is particularly attentive to materials and he likes to exploit their different features. The combination of different substances, particularly gold with non–precious materials is distinctive of his work.

According to Siegfried De Buck, the perfection of the silversmith reveals itself in the end product. He therefore always assumes full responsibility for both design and realization of his creations. His technical expertise,willingness to explore materials and desire to look for new possibilities led to many inventive creations. One of these new techniques was the invention of a new welding technique, TIG, now widely used in the silversmith profession.
