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. Barbara Hast’s objects contain a whole variety of allusions. Their invisible roots and tentacles reach out into all directions of time and history, in order to reveal their fascinating presence in the here and now.
