Intro
Pale, Shadowed Speckled Traces, Fading Ellipse, Bronze Specks, Tilted Shelf (2017) by Jennifer Lee was chosen as the winning entry.
 
The selection was made by a distinguished jury composed of leading figures from the worlds of design, architecture, journalism, criticism and museum curatorship, including Ernst Gamperl, winner of the 2017 edition of the Prize. Jonathan Anderson, LOEWE creative director, commented: Jennifer Lee for me is a landmark in form. The jury commended the work for its classicism, the means by which it rooted the entire exhibition, and its timelessness.

The Jury also agreed upon giving two special mentions. One has been given to French textile artist, Simone Pheulpin, for her work Croissance XL (XL Growth) (2017). The jury commented: She is redefining what we think of as textiles. She has elevated humble recycled materials into something truly remarkable.

Another was given to Japanese potter Takuro Kuwata for his work Tea Bowl (2017). The jury admired the energy and self-expression of his work, saying: He transgresses the typical tradition of ceramics while pointing a new way forward.


The Loewe Craft Prize 2018 exhibition will run at The Design Museum, London, from 4 May until 17 June 2018.
