Michael Becker is renowned for working predominantly in gold, which he combines with stones such as lapis lazuli, uvarovite and red mineral pigment.
His exquisite small scale constructions offer us a powerful contemporary interpretation of these most ancient materials, which examines Becker’s use of subtle texture, colour and geometric shapes. Michael studied at the Fachhochschule Cologne, Germany and his work is held in numerous public collections.
Public Collections include:
V&A, London; Schmuckmuseum, Pforzheim; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; Musée des arts décoratifs de Montréal, Montreal; Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg; Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York
