The qualified goldsmith loves giving playful elements to hand-forged and cast utility objects with puristic functionality, which are often revealed only at the second glance. He runs a workshop for tools and jewellery in Nuremberg and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg and today gives lectures at the training centre for goldsmiths in the city of Ahlen and at the Chamber of Trades in Koblenz.Matthias Lehr
