Dieter Kränzlein

Born in 1962, Dieter Kränzlein trained as a stone sculptor and was a pupil of Franz Dakáy. He has since exhibited in Germany, Switzerland, France and Canada.

Dieter mainly works with shell limestone from Würzburg, as well as crystalline marble from Norway. With incisions, notches, layers and millings, he creates dynamic and inspired sculptures. From a raw and static material, Dieter gives it movement and the typical attributes of “hard and heavy” stone vanish. In Dieter's work, the imaginary force evoked by the medium is the key. His grids and cyclic figures on the limestone emphasize a linear and graphic quality such that the material appears light and floating.
