Experience these five international young designers and their creations at THE SHOW
A total of 25 young designers and goldsmiths from seven countries applied to be part of THE SHOW 2021. Five of these young artists have now been selected. “THE SHOW Talents presented by Wellendorff” will feature these outstanding newcomers in a separate area at the event, where they will present themselves and their creations to an exclusive audience of jewelers and selected retail customers from October 3rd to 5th in Hamburg.
The jury, which is chaired by Christoph Wellendorff, deliberated for two hours yesterday. After considering a large number of excellent applicants and their exciting jewelry ideas, the jurors chose five individuals whose work will be presented at THE SHOW. The choice was not at all easy: “I am really excited about these young artists. As you can see: each piece of jewelry began with a clear and cogent concept,” Christoph Wellendorff explains. Anja Heiden, Managing Director Jewelry at Wempe Jewelers, says that the applicants’ entries were “totally exciting. The participants courageously revealed their innermost selves. There were also very profound derivations of the jewelry, which fascinates me very much. It opened up new horizons.”
Kavita Lorenz from Lorenz Jewelers was similarly enthusiastic: “It was extremely interesting. I learned so much. Many pieces were very provocative and courageous.” Dr. Michael Kiefer, head of the Pforzheim Goldsmith School emphasized, “The participants had the courage to experiment and reveal their feelings. Very impressive!” Jeweler Ralf Nitsch likewise praised the wide range and internationality of the applicants.
