Did you know ?…Sugar is being refined for over 2000 years. Shakespeare in Henry IV  recognized the therapeutic value of ‘Sugre Candie’. Because of the health benefits Rock Candy Crystals were used only as medicine until ca. 1750.
How Rock Candy is made: Hot, saturated pure cane sugar crystallizes on a web of strings in large tanks over a 7 day cooling period. The same process is used to crystallize Rock Candy on sticks. The harvest from the sides and bottom of the tanks become the loose crystals.

About the Artist:
Born in 1948, Eike Erzmoneit grew up during the rebuilding of post-war Berlin, and in the shadow of the Berlin wall, moved to London. A feature of his work is the imagery of the wall and his fascination for exploring the idea of changing dimensions exemplified by the space analogies. Eike’s pictures explore space and time. The work is not confined to canvas. Often mundane objects take on a different aspect when modelled in acrylic and precious metals. This artist has also a passion for restoring and lending his own personal brand of artistry to classic cars. He can be seen driving one of his collection of post war Humbers.
His artwork, however, continued to dominate and overtake the other half of his creative output and his work was exhibited for the first time in 1976 in the Gallery Europa, Europa-Center Berlin.
He has worked as a freelance artist in London and Berlin with regular European exhibitions. The 1990’s saw Eike’s art work exhibited in New Delhi, San Francisco and New York.
He is a member of the Society for Art of Imagination.
