Intro
The European Prize for Applied Arts aims to reward the best contemporary expression's creations in the field of Applied Arts and Craft.

Adi Toch (UK): The Master Prize, awarded by the Federation Wallonia-Brussels
Talk To Me suggests a playful interpretation of museum displays, an experience that contrasts the traditionally hushed gallery environment. The audience is invited to speak to the vessels and explore how their voice translates into gentle motion. Through this installation, I try to provoke contemplation about the potential relationships formed with objects around us. The vessels in the installation reference ancient pots and amphorae supported by metal tripods but unlike the robust museum stands, these vessels on stilts communicate fragility and empathy as they quiver to the sound of human voice.

Takayoshi Terajima (DE): The Young Talent Prize, awarded by the WCC Europe Omamori.
This word in Japanese means an amulet that is auspicious. My basic idea is that jewelery is a container that meets the wishes of people. Why do I look at jewelery as a container? This idea comes from my old interest on the border between jewelery and the object. I have come to the conclusion that it depends on whether the object contains a desire of the wearer or not. Of course, all of us have this claim that jewelry should include a personal wish: some would like demonstrate their social status or power to the outside world. Others, however, want to keep their emotions and their desires in order to always have them with them. In this respect, jewelry transcends outer beauty, design and material value. Jewelry includes desire human of the wearer for a spiritual hold.
