"To create objects that touch the soul, an intensely personal object, is one of the major aims of my work." Mr. Falk Burger.
"Falk Burger was born in Germany and was educated in Colorado. He apprenticed there under R. Scott Ver Lee and Jens Bisgaard of Gusterman Silversmiths. Falk began producing and selling his own work more than thirty years ago; his pieces have been represented in galleries in New York, Hawaii, Michigan, Massachusetts and New Mexico and have been shown at the Denver Art Museum, Worcester Crafts Center in Massachusetts, and the Bellevue Art Museum in Washington. The jewelry he creates is powerful, raw, and magical. The centerpiece of these creations is usually an exceptional stone that Falk has mined and cut to enhance its natural beauty. Working with rough cut diamonds, iridescent andradite garnets, dessert fossils, or Mexican fire opals, the gems seem to ignite from their settings of very high karat gold and sterling silver".
