Michael Jores, Master student of Prof. Georg Muche – Master of the ‘Bauhaus’:
“Since her studies Gisela Kulling is engaged in holistic forming – the sketch, design and manufacture. Over the years she has developed a style I would like to describe as ‘unobtrusive striking’: Common to all exhibits is the clear language of shape – they are never fashionable.
Her courage and desire to experiment is shown exemplary in her ‘Closing needles’. Her rectangular rings are formally very clear, architectural – almost strictly. The combination of several rings with different cross sections give the work a special charm.
Impressive is the sensitivity of Gisela Kulling, how she brings jewelry inherited to new life. Traditionally crafted jewelry – often in their ornamental floral nature – are redefined by her.
Gisela Kulling’s own demands for reduced design language and comfort in wearing are in good relationship with the teaching of the ‘Bauhaus’. This continues like a thread throughout of all her works in a convincing interpretation.”
