Today Hans Bunde, the skilful craftsman behind Penguin, would have turned 100.
As his daughter Sinnet recalls, he loved birds, penguins as well as owls and storks. During his childhood spent in Ribe, he banded many storks, reaching their nests by crawling out of skylights. His wooden Penguin offers a glimpse into the delicate world of his human spirit and mastery, which can be experienced in all of his works as silversmith.
We at ARCHITECTMADE sustain true and timeless craftsmanship and take this opportunity to celebrate Hans Bunde's outstanding skills and the ancient artistry of silversmithing.
