Matthias Kühn

Memorial sign for the worthless things. 

With a grave marker or memorial signs, we as humans trying to memorize things we value. But what is this value, and who remembers the things nobody considers as worthy?

Therefore, he purposely created mistakes in his forging process, such as cold cut and partly cold forging to contradict his craft roots which society considers valuable.
