Frank Bauer Goes PublicAuthor: Ms Gail Fairlamb, feature
German born artist Frank Bauer was raised on the philosophy that art, design and industry could work together to achieve a more visually coherent and democratic society. Over the past thirty years he has produced a huge body of work in metal, which includes jewellery, hollow ware, furniture and lighting. Through this text Fairlamb focuses on Bauer's wind sculptures, exhibited at the Powerhouse Museum and JamFactory, which stand over four metres high and bring together his considerable knowledge of balance, precision engineering and sculptural metal work.
