The fine porcelain art of Barbara Hast causes time to stand still and invites the
spectator to marvel at the metamorphoses that gradually reveal themselves. The
natural growth process of plants and fruit has inspired these quirky creations of
‘white gold’. Plainly and modestly, they refer to the 17th century’s love of nature and
remind us of the exotic curiosities of baroque treasure chambers.
Hast’s objects contain a whole variety of illusions. Their invisible roots and tentacles
reach out into all directions of time and history. Hast’s art pays homage to the
delicacy of nature’s creations
