Tout Ce qui brille

Kjøbenhavns Guldsmedelaug - the Guild of Goldsmiths in Copenhagen - has its origin in 1429 and is by that the oldest guild of craftsmen in the world. The long and proud tradition of craftsmanship is being shown in an exhibition in Mons, Belgium where a number of silversmiths and jewelers are showing some of their best work and their take on applied arts for a new era. For this exhibition I have made a new series of pitchers in sterling silver, challenging the differences between a vase and a pouring vessel.
If you stop by Mons during the summer, you can have a look at the show at the World Crafts Councils gallery at Rue de La Trouille in Mons from the 20th of may till the 14th of august.
