Artist list

Aphra Cheesman, Daniela Chodilová, Tamar Dgani, Justine Gaignault, Amelie Graf, Pavlína Končická, Sandra Nikoline Nielsen, Annora Poppe, Tim van der Loo
These works reflect the huge interest in material investigations and research. This involves reusing existing and processed materials such as leather, textiles, industrial and plastic waste. At the same time, it is about the development of new packaging materials that are biodegradable in order to reduce the amount of plastic waste.


Materials and Techniques Price:
  • Amelie Graf (Germany) 
The jury emphasized the contemporary, relevant approach of Amelie Graf's project. Dealing with the topic of "packaging" is particularly topical. It was underlined that the packaging is edible and nutritious, that it does not end up in a new, energy-intensive recycling cycle, and that the whole system of using the packaging is well thought-out.


Design Prizes:
  • Daniela Chodilová (Czech Republic). Wood/Glass 
Danielá Chodilová's works convinced the jury with their considered and aesthetically successful combination of wood and glass. They are characterized by a certain sense of humour, unusual references and liveliness. What is fascinating is the change in the work through the chemical processes that take place in the glass, with controlled and random processes complementing each other.
 
  • Aphra Cheesman (New Zealand/Australia). Jewellery
With Aphra Cheesman's series of brooches and a pendant, the handling of different materials, the colouring, the emphasis on the processual and the examination of the found objects were convincing. The interesting play with opposites and the unfinished character was emphasized.
 
  • Pavlína Končická (Czech Republic). Jewellery
 Pavlína Končická's brooches are made from old tools. The trained blacksmith switched to jewellery without becoming unfaithful to her original area. The impressive brooches, which are entirely determined by the silhouette and shape of the former metal tools, show a high level of technical virtuosity.
 
  • Annora Poppe (Netherlands). Jewellery
 Annora Poppe's neckpiece “Reflecting Landscape” plays with the illusion of heaviness, the impression of being rough and imperfect. The focus is on the contrasting materials and processes. Processing by the human hand and by nature are compared with the native landscape. Furthermore, the details in the design, such as the form of the purse, is inspired by elements of women's traditional dress from a specific Dutch region.
 
  • Tamar Dgani (Israel). Textile
What fascinated the jury about Tamar Dgani's carpet was the contrast between soft fabric and hard metal and how these opposites are combined in the processing. The supposed simplicity and the use of natural dyes, the play with destruction and creation were emphasized. The carpet invites to reconsider the usual view of materials, to reflect on value categories.
 
  • Justine Gaignault (France). Textile
The jury praised the combination of felting and jacquard techniques in Justine Gaignault's blankets and carpets. The jury rated this combination of different techniques as a combination of tradition and modern technology. In addition, the haptic effect and the choice of colour were appreciated.
 
  • „A New Kind of Blue“: Tim van der Loo und Sandra Nikoline Nielsen (Netherlands and Denmark/Germany). Textile
With the jeans project, the upcycling idea was particularly interesting: the type of production, the material cycle, the material processing. In addition, the aesthetically fascinating, convincing, subtle and attractive appearance was pointed out. The combination of the recycling approach with a deliberately chosen aesthetic design was emphasized.
