On Fritz works:
Fritz Maierhofer’s work exists in a world that is vibrant and diverse. He is not the kind of artist who, having come across a successful idea, contentedly replicates it ad infinitum. He is constantly discovering new materials, absorbing new inspiration into his work. One of the pioneers of contemporary jewellery in the German speaking world - is an explorer in his field, refusing to follow the beaten track, wanting always to conquer new territory.
