schmuck report: part 2 – talente

Talente 2014
Talente 2014, Munich

TALENTE is an international competition for young skilled craftspeople and is one of Europe’s most prestigious platforms for emerging artists in design, technology and applied arts to launch their creative careers in Europe. Now in its 33rd year, Talente is held annually as part of Schmuck and the International Fair for the Skilled Trades in Munich, Germany.

Since 1979 the organizers have collaborated with training institutions, academies, universities and arts and crafts organizations throughout the world, who put forward their nation’s best for the competition. The world-wide network assures a unique view of trends and technologies in arts and crafts. Talente entrants from previous years may not enter again. Invitations are sent out to over 25 countries throughout Europe and beyond. The contributions are selected and awarded by a panel of experts.

Here are a few of my favorites from Talente 2014 seen at Schmuck:

Sara Helsing imbeds small personal found objects in resin. Soili Rautanen in the group of necklaces made from paper perforates portraits from frescoes of Pompei.

Lauren Tickle makes exquisite pieces from intricately cut dollar bills. I have posted previously about her work that I saw in an exhibition here in Florence: Preziosa Young.

Pieter Mark Schevers made a clever installation of “Lost Values” with an organized collection of mechanical objects displayed with high-tech video of low-tech contraptions in action. Kristyna Spanihelova makes metal compositions with organic patinas.
