Exhibition series "Exhibit of the Month"

Event duration:
from 08 to 31 January 2020

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.

Knud Barslund. Denmark
Caviar bowl with a spoon, 2012
Silver, amber

The artwork was exhibited at the Fifth International Biennial of Amber Artworks "Alatyr 2013".

The caviar bowl was made from a whole piece of bastard amber of yellow-brown colour in the shape of a horizontally elongated oval bowl on a small metal stand also of the oval shape. One side of the stone is narrowed and oblong reminding of a woman's head with clearly marked features on the outer side of the stone. On the opposite side, the stone becomes wider and has a bowl, where a small silver spoon with a long thin handle can be easily put. The cup is set on a small leg soldered on the oval silver stand.

Knud Barslund was born in 1952 in Denmark. In 1974, he became a goldsmith. In 1994, he graduated from the design department of the Goldsmith Academy in Copenhagen. He has been working in the own workshop since 1994.

His works are in the collections of: Danish State Arts Foundation; Museum of Decorative Art, Copenhagen, Denmark; Holstebro Museum, Holstebro, Jutland; Danish Amber Museum, Oksbøl​; Kaliningrad Amber Museum, Russia.
