PUBLICATION OUT OF PRINT
This publication, accompanying the 17th Silver Triennial International, seeks to encourage collectors and lovers of silverware not only to be fascinated by the traditional forms of silverware, but also to consider the current trends in the international scene.
This publication, accompanying the 17th Silver Triennial, presents the current world of international silversmithing and metal design. A rich repertoire of handcrafted everyday objects illustrates current worldwide approaches that have emerged over the last two years: from coffee and tea pots, via large and small bowls, to candlesticks, vases, salt and pepper casters, cutlery or small table accessories.
Every three years renowned designers and emerging young artists from the world of silversmithing participate in the competition. A top-class jury – Dr. Barbara Grotkamp-Schepers, Klingenmuseum Solingen (DE); David Huycke, metal artist and professor in Hasselt (BE); Rosemarie Jäger, Galerie im Kelterhaus Hochheim (DE) – selects the best of the best.
The competition has been held since 1965 to promote international contemporary siversmithing. It is a joint project by the Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst e.V. [Association for Goldsmiths’ Art] and the Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus Hanau [German Goldsmiths’ House], and is one of the most significant events of its kind worldwide.
