Exhibition series "Exhibit of the Month"

Event duration:
from 01 to 29 April 2019

The series of one-showpiece exhibitions is an other way to present the extensive collection of the Kaliningrad Regional Amber Museum, which includes around 16 000 depositary items. This way of demonstrating an art piece allows specialists, its author and guests to look at it out of the context of a themed exhibition.

Harald Popkiewicz. Poland
Sculpture "Amber wagon". 2009
Silver, amber

The sculpture "Amber wagon" was presented at the Third International Biennial of Amber Art Works "Alatyr 2009".

Characteristic feature of this work by Harald Popkiewicz is the use of natural forms of amber, almost untreated, or just a little polished to show the variety of colours hidden under the crust. Works by the artist are notable for the original design, which distinguishes them among the dominating style of mass production.

Harald Popkiewicz was born in 1944 in the city of Leszno, Poland. Since 1970 he has been designing and making interior objects from amber and silver. In 1983 the artist was honoured with the title "Master of the Artistic Craft". Since 1999 he has been a member of Torun Union of Artists. Works by the master are known in Poland, as well as abroad. Works made by the author are in the collections of Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC, USA; the Amber Museum in Ribnitz-Damgarten, Germany; the Amber Museum and Gallery in Nida, Lithuania; the Amber Museum, department of the Gdansk History Museum, Poland.
