Beate Leonard’s work makes use of a vocabulary of reductive aesthetic harmony. Her design, which not infrequently refers to questions specific to sculpture, result in abstract objects strongly supported by the choice of material used. In her studio, “vases” are produced in materials such as bronze, silver, aluminum and brass.
