Germany, 2016 - 18th International Silver Triennial, worldwide competition.
Jury statement: The expectation placed on silver and its handling has been cleverly
overthrown and at the same time creates an appeal in the objects Crucifix
and Paper Bag (Wine), which, in turn, poses many a question. The materiality of
paper has been overridden through the utilization of silver. It is a subtle play on
traditional conceptions and values, in the material aspect as well as with regard
to the impact of the two objects. The design, form, structure, and technical execution
are all successful and convincing down to the smallest details.
The Paper Bag is available exclusively at Ornamentum and will be exhibited at Design Miami, 2016
