Title: "La Sagrada Familia" (Barcelona)
Produced for a private client who gave the cathedral as a gift to someone else. This person then donated the artwork to a children orphanage in Germany. The story of this donation made it even to the local newspapers and brought many smiles and joy to the children there.
What a sweet surprise!
PRO7, TV-project, "Sexy lady"
German television station PRO7 presented Gerhard with an exciting challenge when they requested that he carve a life-size woman from a massive block of chocolate within 48 hours – in front of rolling cameras. The producers asked – is it doable? Gerhard took the challenge on and got to work …
Start: 220 kg (485 lbs) chocolate block
End: 180 kg (397 lbs) finished
Size: 1.82 m (ca. 6 ft.)
First Swiss wristwatch (1868)
Produced for a Corporate client event in Salt Lake City, USA.
They really enjoyed the beauty of the watch, not just to see it in history books. No, this time in real, in chocolate and even covered in real gold. Heart, what do you need more?
The chocolate museum's new giant heart, Switzerland
Private client: Chocolate bust as a gift for his fashion designer partner, in the UK
Two solid chocolate trucks for a transportation company in Germany.
"Out-of-the-box" French chocolate experience
Produced for a Corporate client in Switzerland as a gift for and its new Country Manager for France. All the things the person will hopefully miss of Switzerland: The Swiss mountains and Swiss milk chocolate.
Topped up by future French macarons, a painters palette, a heart made out of tiny roses and of course the Eiffel tower- all made out of chocolate!
Corporate Client: The client requested a chocolate tooth in chocolate as he was a dentist. And I guess as I have titled the artwork "Caries" it is quite accurate and ironic.
Location: Chicago, USA
Intercontinental hotel: The client requested a chocolate showpiece for the New-Opening of the hotel.
National Team of Switzerland
Carved chocolate artwork as a support for the chocolate showpiece of the Swiss National Team at the Culinary Olympics competition in Berlin, who won 'Gold" with it. What a sweet surprise!
